They Want To Poison Me,HH Claims
OPPOSITION United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema has alleged that there are schemes to arrest, poison him and later claim he died of Corona virus (COVID-19).
In a statement posted on his Facebook page, Mr Hichilema claim the Patriotic Front ( PF) are doing everything possible to stop him and his party from contesting the August 12 general elections.
“We are aware that for a long time now, this regime has been scheming on how to eliminate and stop us from seeking public office. Their latest scheme is to have us arrested, thrown into a Police cell and then poison us from there and later claim that we died of Coronavirus.
But fellow citizens, we say to you that if seeking the presidency and serve you better will cost our lives, we are willing to do so,” he said.Mr Hichilema has however advised we PF to focus on solving the massive economic problems faced by people.
He has also demanded that police to immediately release former Cabinet Minister Ackson Sejani, Mazabuka and Choma Mayors Vincent Lilanda and Javen Simoloka and citizen Fines Malambo.
“The PF preoccupation is to stop us from being on the ballot paper this year but unless they are the givers of life, we will be on the ballot paper. When we are voted in office, we will run our country in a much better and prudent way,” he said.
Mr Hichilema has also pledged to offer legal support to all citizens who are allegedly abducted by the police officers to o come forward so that we can offer you legal support.”We shall be ensuring that individual Police officers who are politically inclined or indeed being abused are made to pay compensation to those being illegally arrested, as opposed to billing Government and drawing funds from the very poor tax payers.
Its time for change and no one will stand in our way and that of a decided population as is the case now. As such we appeal to all of you citizens to get involved and get it solved,” Mr Hichilema said
