Veteran politican Vernon Mwaanga has said it is impossible for the opposition UPND to win the August 12th polls due to the work PF has done in various sectors of the economy.
And Mwaanga has observed most UPND supporters have lost confidence in their leader Hakainde Hichilema because of failure to offer alternatives and his uninspiring leadership.
In a statement on Thursday, Mwaanga said what the UPND has been promising to do should it form government, has already been done by the PF.
“PF has made it impossible for the UPND to form government this year. From the look of things, the ruling party has been paying attention to what these guys in opposition have been promising the electorate and they have left no stone unturned. Look at how much they have scored in infrastructure development, access to health facilities, roads, strides in addressing economic challenges to mention but a few, I sympathise for the UPND,” Mwaanga said.
Meanwhile, Mwaanga has charged that most of UPND leader, Hakainde Hichilema’s objective supporters have lost confidence in him and the party because whatever he is promising is already being done by the PF Government.
He says Hichilema is not offering anything new to warrant his election to the highest office apart from rabble-rousing adding that this has made most of his supporters dump him for President Edgar Lungu and the PF.
” Clearly, a lot of Mr. Hichilema’s objective supporters have lost confidence in him and the UPND except for a few that support him based on his ethnic extraction. They have realised that their leader is not bringing anything new to the table and whatever he has been promising them, the PF are already doing,” said Mwaanga.
