Cerebrated United Poor People’s Party-UPPP President, Alex Muliokela yesterday brought Kasama town to a standstill as he explained his party manifesto.
Mr. Muliokela, who launched his presidential bid today in Kasama with a live phone-in programme on Mano Radio, pledged to uplift the living standards of the people.
And shortly after his radio programme, Mr. Muliokela was mobbed by scores of Kasama residents who wanted to have a glimpse of him at Radio Mano.
Later, the celebrated politician paid a courtesy call on the Paramount Chief Chitimuku of the Bemba speaking people were he also met six village headmen.
He told the traditional leaders that once he is voted as republican president on August 11, 2016, he will address their plight with decent allowances, accommodation among others.
