Mr Hichilema has since encouraged Zambian not to ignore calls for unity of purpose ahead of 2016 in order to usher in a new government.
He says the power to change the country still remains in the hands of the Zambia people themselves.
Mr. Hichilema says people Zambians across political parties have no option but to unite and ensure that they usher in a government that will address all their concerns.
He says it is possible that Zambians can unite the same way they did in 1991.
Mr Hichilema adds that people cannot pretend that everything is okay in the country.
