The opposition Rainbow Party said that it will pull another surprise in the Lubansenshi parliamentary by-election by winning its first parliamentary seat.
Party Spokesperson Goodson Banda says this because people are accepting and appreciating the party’s ideologies premised on socialism.
Mr. Banda told QFM News that because of the many challenges the country is going through, the electorate in Lubansenshi will not make a mistake of voting for the PF.
Mr.Banda said that the party is at peace knowing too well that the electorate in Lubansenshi constituency is happy with the message it is offering to them.
Meanwhile, Six suspected UPND cadres have been picked by police in Luwingu in connection with acts of violence during campaigns in the Lubasenshi parliamentary by-elections.
Those arrested include three residents of Lusaka who are on a campaign trail in Lubansenshi.
When contacted for a comment, Northern Province Acting Police Commissioner Luckson Sakala referred all queries to Police Spokesperson Charity Chanda.But Ms. Chanda said she was waiting for details of the arrests.
And UPND Deputy Spokesperson Edwin Lifwekelo has said that he would comment later.
And PF Secretary General Mumbi Phiri has said that the arrested cadres had attacked her entourage after pouncing on the Acting District Commissioner Patrick Chanda on Saturday.
Mrs. Phiri said that the matter was reported to the police who picked up the six suspects.
She complained that a named opposition party was allegedly going rounding collecting peoples’ voters cards and National registration Cards in exchange for cash.
Mrs. Phiri has since challenged the police to fully investigate the matter which she says would disfranchise some voters ahead of the September 24 by-election.
