Opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema has assured street vendors across the country that he will not remove them from their respective trading places if elected Republican President.
And Mr. Hichilema says one of his top priorities if voted into office will be to reduce the electricity tariffs which he believes are way too high for most people to afford.
Speaking during a rally at Twashuka Ground in Kanyama this afternoon, Mr. Hichilema says his government will also ensure that local authorities manage land effectively.
He says his cabinet will have people from all provinces stating that his party is in a hurry to develop Zambia not on tribal lines.
He adds that the people of Zambia should not make the mistake they made in 2011 by putting the PF in government.
Mr. Hichilema, who called for a moment of silence in honor of late Republican President Michael Sata, says what the people of Zambia need is a selfless leader who can correct the mistakes of the PF.
