The President said opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has been losing elections since 2001 and stands no chance of winning the August polls.

Speaking on arrival at Mongu airport today, President Lungu appealed to PF members not to panic  because the ruling party will emerge victorious on August 11 polls.

"Don’t panic my members. UPND is losing in this year's election and you know the pain of losing" he said.

And President Lungu said the PF would become more attractive after the general election. 

He hinted that new members and those that left it will  re-join the ruling party. 

He further advised PF members to embrace 'new' members and desist from being provocative. 

President Lungu observed that the opposition UPND leader Mr. Hichilema, his presidential running-mate and their followers are used to demonizing others in the political field. 

The President said democracy is about co-existing and urged PF members to accept divergent views. 

The Head of State encouraged both the PF and opposition political parties to campaign peacefully and be tolerant to each other because Zambia is founded on the One Zambia,  One Nation motto.

And PF Provincial Vice Chairman David Musinda assured President Lungu of 100 percent vote from Western province. 

Mr. Musinda appealed to President Lungu to upgrade Mongu municipal council into a city council.
