SESHEKE – After days of issue based conversations with the residents of Nalikwanda ward, a day before they go to the polls, 2 scores and 7 electorates have decided to ditch the impotent UPND to join the Mighty Patriotic Front party.
On hand to receive the defectors, PF’s National Youth & Security Chairman MCC Stephen Kampyongo MP thanked them for making a wise decision to work with President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and their mother Vice President Inonge Wina.
“Welcome to the party that believes and practices the One Zambia One Nation motto. Despite knowing that we would not get as much votes here as elsewhere our President still went ahead to pick Mama Inonge Wina as his running mate because our party has a National character,” MCC Kampyongo said.
And acknowledging the presence of Induna Mowa among the defectors, Nkana Lawmaker Hon Alexander Chiteme MP, thanked the traditional leader for his humility and servitude.
“Your presence here Induna Mowa is in itself a blessing to my fellow honorables and I. This is as it should be, because the importance of your office cannot be overemphasized and His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu is always telling us Ministers to work with you our traditional leaders,” Hon Chiteme said.
Addressing the electorates, PF’s Western Province “First born” Mangango Member of Parliament Hon Godwin Putu said that he had been in UPND since 1999 till last year and that the Opposition party had nothing to offer.
“Few months after my election, we in Mangango have started to see development, we are happy! We have started seeing Infrastructure developments, and we expect more. Vote for Masule tomorrow if you want to see what we are seeing, President Lungu is a father for all indeed,” Hon Putu said.
President Edgar Chagwa Lungu has arrived back in Sesheke to drum up support for PF Parliamentary Candidate Dean Masule as it is rumored that more UPND members are expected to dump the Opposition party for PF.
The electorates of Sesheke Constituency go to the polls tomorrow Tuesday 12th February to elect a new representative following the demise of Hon Frank Kufakwandi last year.
