Opposition United Party for National Development UPND President Hakainde Hichilema says he has set aside all political differences and will work with the Government in combating further spread of the Coronavirus.

Mr. Hichilema notes that the pandemic is a common threat that recognizes no political parties, status, colour or boundary.

In a statement released in Lusaka today, Mr. Hichilema said his party remains focused to contribute its support and resources towards the cause, with a view to reduce the socioeconomic impact of the pandemic on the country and people’s lives.

 

He said everyone in the country has a role to play starting from families, churches, institutions, political parties, Non-Governmental Organisations, Civil Society Organisations, and business houses saying the virus affects all.

 

Mr. Hichilema urged citizens to co-operate and practice all measures provided, to break the transmission of the virus among the population.
