CHIEF Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili yesterday urged Kasama residents to vote for Yes in the Referendum on the Bill of Rights.
Mr Kambwili, who is in Kasama for a series of campaign meetings, said the Constitution was a product of people’s submission and the process needed to be completed.
Speaking when he featured on Radio Mano in Kasama yesterday, Mr Kambwili said the current amendments to the Constitution and Bill of Rights were submissions made by Zambians and collected by various constitutional review commissions.
Mr Kambwili said the Bill of Rights would enhance people’s rights and fulfil the long promise made by Zambians.
And on Sunday when a he addressed a public rally at President’s park in Kasama, Mr Kambwili maintained that United Party for National Development (UPND) was still a tribal political party in the country.
Mr Kambwili alleged that if UPND won the general elections, the country could be divided.
He warned the people of Northern Province to be careful with what he called propaganda against President Edgar Lungu by the opposition UPND using the privately run online media, the Zambian Watchdog.
Mr Kambwili charged that the PF administration was the best performing in the region having managed to attain average GDP growth rates.
He has since said that the UPND would collapse after the August 11 general elections..
But UPND vice president Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba who was in Luapula Province on Sunday urged the people to stop following tribe but critically analyse leaders when voting.
He noted that wisdom was one cardinal thing voters needed to look at when casting their ballots this August.
And when he addressed Chipili resident at Chipili School grounds in the evening, the UPND vice president and running mate to party Mr Hichilema pledged to complete the construction of Boma offices.
The UPND is fielding Kenneth N’gona in Chipili who asked voters to give him an opportunity to represent them in Parliament.
