Opposition UPND vice president for administration Geoffrey Mwamba has challenged President Edgar Lungu to an electoral contest in the Kasama Central by-election.
Reacting to President Lungu’s recent remarks that the former Kasama Central MP is being a coward by challenging the declaration of his seat vacant, Mr Mwamba says the President should prove his remarks by personally challenging him in the by-election when it is called.
Mr. Mwamba says has told QFM News that he is eager to hand the President a humiliating electoral defeat so that he know who he is.
Asked whether he does not foresee the possibility of him losing the by-election when it is called, Mr. Mwamba has maintained that he cannot lose an election for a Parliamentary seat he once held.
Mr. Mwamba says President Lungu, having worked under him before, should know better his capabilities when it comes to elections.
He has also wondered why the people of Northern Province, where he comes from cannot vote for him when people of Eastern Province can vote for President Lungu.
Mr. Mwamba says the people of Kasama Central have been used by the ruling PF as a ladder for too long, but that this time around it will not be possible.
