United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema has urged the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) government to put their act together this year and work for the betterment of the country.
Mr. Hichilema has told QFM News in a statement that the year 2013 has had its own challenges and the UPND had shown a lot of resilience to fight some of the injustices in 2013 that were at the behest of people.
Mr. Hichilema notes that the price of mealie meal went up to unaffordable levels, freedoms of movement were curtailed and political persecution was rife in some instances even resulted in deaths.
He states that Zambia needs affordable Mealie Meal and not unnecessary by-elections.
He adds that the human rights records were appalling and efforts by many citizens to advise government fell on deaf ears In short 2013 was a nightmare in many scores.
He furthermore adds that Zambians need jobs and not a bloated government.
The UPND Leader has since urged all Zambians to be resolved and resilient as the country faces the challenges that 2014 will bring forth.
