Kitwe. Thursday April 19th 2018.
President Edgar lungu is wasting his time by coming to the Copperbelt tomorrow.
According to information availed to members of the public, the President will be in the region on a two day working visit.
The truth of the matter is that Mr. Lungu is visiting the copper belt to conduct campaigns this Saturday in two local government wards.
This is ahead of polls on Tuesday 24 April next week.
The two wards are: Luapula in Kalulushi and kansuswa in Mufulira district.
Mr. Lungu is panicking and knows that the chances of Pf winning the said local government seats are narrow.
The region is gone and the NDC has taken over the copper Belt.
No amount of manipulation, intimidation and vote buying will sway the vote in Mufulira and Kalulushi districts.
We are aware that the Pf Government wants to block NDC consultant Dr Chishimba Kambwili who is expected to hold rallies in these two towns this Saturday.
Attempt’s by Mr. Lungu and the Pf to block the NDC from proceeding with their planned political gathering’s won’t change the mindsets of the electorate’s.
These use less activities are in vain as the people of the Copper belt have already made up their minds.
We are aware that Pf will parade a number of defectors this Saturday to try and appease Mr. Lungu, but this will be an exercise in futility.
As NDC, we appeal to residents in these two towns to eat their money and give us their vote.
This regime is extremely treacherous.
The Pf is now taking last minute development to kansuswa in Mufulira.
Roads are being upgraded by Avic international in the area.
These are roads that have not been budgeted for.
To our supporters on the Copper belt, we urge you to turn out in large numbers and receive the NDC consultant Dr. Kambwili.
The people of the Copperbelt should shun the Presidential visit by Mr. Lungu as a way to show him that residents are not happy with his governance style.
Let’s stand firm and united and defeat the Pf in next Tuesday’s local government polls.
