Party leader, Chanda, calls for collaboration in nation building, urges Hichilema to stay focused


The United Prosperous and Peaceful Zambia (UPPZ) has urged President Hakainde Hichilema to stay focused on stabilising the economy and not be swayed by petty issues.

UPPZ leader, Charles Chanda, advised Hichilema to shift his focus towards ensuring the stability of mealie meal prices beyond private millers, who are profit-oriented.

Chanda in a statement issued in Lusaka on Thursday said affordable mealie meal prices were essential to the sustainability of the economy and the well-being of Zambians.

He urged the President to prioritize issue that directly affects millions of Zambians.

“As a nation, we need to unite and collaborate to find lasting solutions to our economic woes and this can only happen if we embrace all leaders regardless of their political color,” Chanda said.

He said each leader had something positive to offer, and that the country must tap into their strengths to achieve the economic development set out goals.

Chanda said UPPZ understood that the President was committed to finding realistic solutions to the challenges facing the country.

“As a nation, we cannot afford to let our people go hungry while we sort out petty political differences,” he said.
