‘Time to seek votes, not to support others,’ Bwalya outlines plans ahead 2026 polls


Zambia Must Prosper (ZMP) leader, Kelvin Fube Bwalya, has ruled out joining an opposition alliance that will seek to remove President Hakainde Hichilema from power.

Bwalya said this was due to perceived lack of trust among leaders who form alliances in the name of going to State House.

Addressing Journalists at a media briefing in Lusaka on Monday, Bwalya stated that it was his time to seek for votes from the Zambian people and not support others.

He said he had supported others in the past who turned out to be liars once they were elected into office.

“I have supported people during by-elections at Parliamentary and Presidential level and I feel this is my time to get married to the people of Zambia come 2026,” Bwalya stated.

He said his party members would soon be going out to sell the party manifesto to the Zambian people and that no one should stand in his way of canvassing support from them.

The ZMP leader noted that the opposition was being denied opportunities to hold public meetings or gathering because Hichilema was scared of losing the 2026 elections.

“We are going out to sell our manifesto and should I be stopped I will seek legal redress because I refuse like Hichilema did to be cowed into not talking to the Zambian people,” Bwalya vowed.

He, however, indicated that he was ready to work with others with progressive ideas and are ready to be truthful as opposed to lying like others did in the past.
