Time up for Lungu, says Musenge
By Staff Reporter
Opposition National Democratic Congress party says President Edgar Lungu is wasting his time by going to the Copperbelt tomorrow when his support in the area has dropped drastically.
President Lungu is cheduled to be on the Copperbelt on a two day working visit.
“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,” said Musenge.
“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. These useless activities are in vain as the people of the Copperbelt 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.”
