Copperbelt Welfare and Environment Protection Association (CWEPA) President Sydney Njamba has come out in support of Vice President George Kunda’s anti-violence stand in the Solwezi Central by-elections.
Mr Njamba said his organisation is supportive of Mr Kunda’s remarks that the violence being experienced in the Solwezi Central by-elections campaigns are being perpetuated by the PF/UPND pact.
He has charged that there is need for the opposition to base their campaigns on issues and what they will do for the electorate like the MMD has been doing.
In statement to ZANIS in Lusaka today, the CWEPA President alleged that the opposition PF/UPND leaders Michael Sata and Hakainde Hichilema have been exporting cadres to Solwezi just to instigate violence.
He said that it is clear that Mr. Sata was now using the UPND to penetrate North Western Province where he has less support.
He noted that there is no way Mr. Sata would now want to participate in the Solwezi central by-elections after saying that he does not need the support of people from North Western province.
Mr. Njamba stated that his organization also agrees with Mr. Kunda who exposed Mr. Sata’s tactics of wanting to befriend people of North Western province by slowly selling his popularity through Mr. Hichilema.
He said people of North Western province know what is good for them and will not entertain double-tongued politicians like Mr. Sata who is not honest.
Mr. Njamba has since urged Mr. Hichilema to realize that he is merely being used by Mr. Sata adding that his political future is likely to be dented before he achieves his goals.
