“If HH wants to campaign, he should wait for 2021 as opposed to campaigning in church”.
It’s unacceptable `for HH to start campaigning when the Electoral Commission of Zambia has not opened campaigns for 2021, Former UPND Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba has said. Speaking at the PF Secretariat in Lusaka yesterday after meeting the PF Secretary General, Mr Mwamba condemned UPND President Hakainde Hichilema for going to church on Sunday in the province he does not stay without getting clearance from the police.
GBM said HH is a stubborn man who should not be allowed to campaign anywhere in Zambia before 2021 as he was desperate to become President at all costs. He said if HH wants to campaign, he should wait for 2021 as opposed to campaigning in church. Mr Mwamba said he was of the view that police should have just arrested HH right in church to send a clear signal to desperate politicians that campaigns have not yet started and that lawlessness does not pay.
The Former Defense Minister also said he was aware that HH was feeling his weight as he has lost more than 5000 UPND members to PF ever since he rejoined the ruling party. Meanwhile, GBM told PF Secretary General that he will continue mobilizing the party using his own money ahead of the 2021 General Elections so that HH is not given chance to enter State House.
Last Sunday in Ndola, Police stormed the catholic church in an attempt to arrest the UPND Leader as he allegedly had no police permit to attend church services on the Copperbelt.
