PAC confident of scooping Kasenengwa seat
By Staff Reporter
People’s Alliance for Change (PAC) president Andyford Banda says his party deserves a seat in parliament claiming it is the third largest political party in the country.
Banda said PAC’s good performance in the 2016 general elections and the recent mayoral election in Lusaka is a clear indication the party was popular.
Speaking during campaigns in Kasenengwa ahead of the September 6, by-elections, Banda stated that the party’s main focus was empowerment and job creation for the youths.
“PAC has workable solutions to all the challenges currently facing the country, including difficulties faced by farmers to access crop market. I am appealing to voters in Kasenengwa to vote for PAC parliamentary candidate John Zulu if they want to see development,” said Banda.
And Zulu has committed 50 per cent of his salary to developmental projects in Kasenengwa Constituency if he wins the election.
“I have signed a social contract with people of Kasenengwa, which enables the electorate to sue me if I fail to deliver on the promises. Lack of access to clean drinking water, poor roads, lack of clinics and schools are some of the major challenges facing Kasenengwa Constituency,” said Zulu.
The Kasenengwa parliamentary by-election follows the death of late PF Member of Parliament Victoria Kalima.
Other candidates taking part in the election are Sensio Banda for Patriotic Front Party and Abel Ngwenya for United Prosperous and Peaceful Zambia.
