GOVERNMENT says it takes great exception to allegations by United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema that the Patriotic Front (PF) administration is plotting to assassinate him.

“He is under-five and needs to grow up. There is no way the PF government would want to assassinate him because he is a political player. The best for him is not to raise such accusations but to assist Government in finding solutions of the problems that the country is facing”
