“How do you shoot at people going to church and they were aiming at me. The situation in this country is really sad and everything has collapsed. I am urging all Zambians to be strong and I can assure you that things will get better when we take over the running of government,” he said. Mr Hichilema also urged party members to continue campaigning by going to door so that the party wins the August elections.
“Dawn is just about, do not fear , this is a time to be strong, please do not look back. My message to you is that be strong, t hey have tried to intimidate us and to take our lives but we do not fear, there is nothing to fear. What you saw this morning is thuggery by PF cadres wearing police uniform, no police officer would behave like that,” he said.
He said once elected he will unite every Zambian.

I hear there people been killed in Chingola, this is a scheme of PF, I am therefore calling on everyone to protect each other.We morn with the families who have been killed,” he said.
