UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has accused President Michael Sata of creating five districts in Western province to make up for his failure to resolve the pending issues in Barotseland.
Speaking during a press briefing at the UPND party secretariat this morning, Mr. Hichilema said the creation of five districts in the province is ill intended.
President Sata recently announced the creation of Nalolo, Sioma, Mitete, Luampa and Sikongo as new districts in Western province.
And Mr. Hichilema has charged that the Patriotic Front government is making major economic decisions on impulse.
He says it is unfortunate the newly created districts have not been budgeted for and wonders where funds will come from to build infrastructure befitting a district.
And speaking at the same occasion, UPND Lusaka Province chairperson, Adrian Bauleni who was recently arrested in connection with the murder of a PF cadre Menyani Zulu said his incarceration has strengthened his resolve to fight for social economic justice.
He has since charged that PF is a violent party that is not good for democracy.
