United Party for National Development (UPND) Leader Hakainde Hichilema claims President Edgar Lungu is still after his life.

Addressing journalists in Lusaka, Mr.Hichilema claims to have intelligence information suggesting that President Lungu regrets not having killed him while in detention.

And Mr Hichilema says he will apply for a police permit to hold a peaceful protest against what he has termed as wanton corruption in the PF Government.

He says he will follow the law as prescribed under the Public Order Act to apply for a permit.

The UPND leader has since called on Zambians to join him during the protest saying it is their money that is being stolen by the PF administration.

Mr Hichilema has further called on the PF Government to stop harassing Financial Intelligence Centre Director General, Mary Tshuma for sharing the 2017 financing trends report with the public.

He says according to the investigations carried by his party, law enforcement agencies were furnished with the report three months before it was made public.

And Mr. Hichilema says if given a chance to govern the nation, he will end political violence within 30 days of coming to power.

He says political violence has persisted in the country because President Lungu has tolerated the scourge.

Meanwhile the UPND Leader has proposed that the constitution be changed so that in an event an elected officer such as a Member of Parliament, Mayor, Council Chairperson or Councilor dies, the person who came out second should take over to avoid wasting resources through by-elections.
