PF hopeful of scooping the Livingstone Parliamentary seat
Livingstone, February 19, ZANIS ——Patriotic Front Deputy Youth Coordinator Kennedy Kamba says the United Party for National Development (UNDP) was just wasting its time and resources in
Livingstone by-election because the people want a candidate who will bring meaningful development.
Mr Kamba said the party was assured of victory because it has the capacity to bring meaningful development to Livingstone through its sound policies.
In a press release made available to ZANIS in Livingstone today, Mr Kamba noted that people in Livingstone have suffered for too long at the hands of UNPD Councillors and Members of Parliament who have lamentably failed to deliver any development to the tourist capital.
He also warned that any desperate suspicious manoeuvres by the UPND or other opposition political parties to win the elections will not be tolerated by the PF youths.
“We want to put it on record that as PF youths we are prepared to protect our votes from anyone who will attempt to temper with them or bring violence in a bid to win the elections,” said Mr
“ And even if the UPND go ahead with their Stone Age campaign strategies they are just wasting their time and resources because the people of Livingstone want someone like PF candidate Mr Evans Lawrence who can bring meaningful development,” Mr Kamba said.
He also encouraged PF youths and the campaign team not to relent but double their efforts in their campaign activities in order to win the elections by a wide margin.
But UPND Campaign Manager Mr Garry Nkombo said the PF can give people all sorts of items but that people of Livingstone cannot be taken for granted.
Mr Nkombo who is also Mazabuka MP said UPND was not using any desperate measures like distribution of items to voters and was focusing its attention on engaging electorates on issues based campaigns.
“Let the PF give people food, chitenge materials but that will not sway people to vote for them – because I know that the people of Livingstone cannot be taken for granted,” said Mr Nkombo.
