We wish to turn a new page in our approach to politics and our first point of call is for us to make peace with all those we may wronged in our previous manner of conducting politics,” he said.

“Understandably so, our criticism has been premised on the strong understanding that the UPND over promised during election campaigns. Our heavy handed approach to our politics has been driven by a clear conviction that Zambia deserves better and can and should be better.
The UPND received a resounding mandate from the Zambian people on 12th August 2021, that victory gave them an opportunity to preside over our national affairs for five years. Taking full recognisance that the UPND still has well over four years to govern, we wish to announce that our approach to politics will now change.
As we do so, we will not take our eyes off our collective resolve to develop this country. We will voice out when need arises. We will point issues that we do not agree with but the central theme of our message will be development,” he said.
The Kabushi law maker said his primary focus will now be on serving the people of Kabushi. With the new CDF model to deliver sustainable solutions to the problems that continue to plaque his Constituency.
He said he remains resolved to support President Hichilema’s fight against corruption as it is noble and intended to help develop Zambia.
“If there are any resources that belong to Zambia that may have been looted, they should be recovered and rechanneled for the benefit of all.
We also strongly believe that this fight should be conducted in a just, fair and humane manner.
We will support this government to deliver to the Zambian people as they promised because if the UPND delivers, Zambia wins,” he said.
