And Mr. Mweetwa has urged patience as President Hichilema tries to assemble a team that would restore the country’s socioeconomic fortunes in accordance with his and the UPND’s vision of national development.
“We are aware that the nation is anxious to hear the team that will run with President HH and Vice President Mutale Nalumango to take the nation to higher heights. The wait will soon be over because the President is meticulous on who will have to work with him. The President has a programme for the country and for that programme to materialize he needs to carefully select a team capable of delivering” he told a media briefing in Lusaka on Monday.
