Mr. Lubinda has told QFM News in an interview that he is not threatened by Tembo’s campaign programmes including the collection of solid waste in the constituency.
He says Tembo has the right to aspire to be what he wants and that he should continue doing so for as long as it is within the confines of the electoral law.
Mr Lubinda says he is confident that even the electorates in Kabwata are not moved by Tembo’s earnest campaign ahead of the 2016 elections.
He adds that his constituency office in collaboration with the Lusaka city council waste management unit has been trying its best to ensure that garbage in the constituency is collected at the appropriate time.
And Mr. Lubinda has challenged the Lusaka city council to produce receipts books of the receipts issued to Mr. Tembo for hiring the refuse trucks used to collect garbage in the constituency.
Meanwhile Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) says it is always guided by the election timetable with regards to aspiring candidates and when they should start their campaigns.
ECZ public relations Manager Cris Akufuna says the commission will issue a comprehensive statement with regards Mr Tembo’s campaigns in Kabwata after getting to the bottom of the matter.
