Dr. Mumba has told Qfm News that it is unfortunate that the Patriotic Front has continued to use lies during by-elections even when it’s clear that people are no longer interested.
Dr. Mumba says the PF should realize that their lies of promising to take development to an area when there is a by-election are not working anymore.
He adds that no amount of exaggerations the Patriotic Front will tell the nation will work to their advantage.
Meanwhile Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) leader Edith Nawakwi says Patriotic Front members of parliament are not performing to the expectations of the people that put the in office.
Ms Nawakwi says there is need for Members of Parliament to give back to the people they represent by taking development to their constituencies.
She says it is worrying that even after being told by President Michael Sata to work hard, some members of parliament are still not taking the directive seriously.
The FDD leader has also lamented rate of neglect in Mansa which the provincial capital for Luapula.
The people of Mansa central go to the polls today to elect their representative in Parliament.
