PF wants to use KK to regain lost popularity – HH

Opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema has charged that the Patriotic Front (PF) wants to regain lost popularity by using first Republican President Dr. Kenneth Kaunda.

Mr. Hichilema has told QFM News that it is very shameful that Dr. Kaunda was made to say things that were not building the nation but aimed at re-building the dented image of the PF during the independence celebrations in Kitwe last week .

Mr. Hichilema says people expect Dr. Kaunda to always rise above partisan lines so that all politicians can seek guidance from him.

He says Dr. Kaunda is supposed to be a symbol of national building, reconciliation, peace and unity like many other statesmen in the world, and not being reduced to being a tool of building the image of the PF.

The UPND Leader has since requested Dr. Kaunda to reclaim his father of the nation role in his retirement than teach President Sata what he has described as politics of oppression following his criticism of opposition leaders.
