LOSING Patriotic Front (PF) Kafulafuta constituency candidate in the 2011 general elections, Patrick Mwanawasa, has not ruled out re-contesting the vacant seat if called upon by the ruling party hierarchy.

Mr Mwanawasa said although he was now busy with school and family commitments, he would not turn down such a national duty of representing the people of Kafulafuta in parliament if called upon.

“At the moment I have not received anything from the upper echelons of the party structure. But this time I am busier with my school and family commitments. Maybe 2016 would be much better for me,” he said.

Mr Mwanawasa who is the first born son to late former President Levy Mwanawasa contested the Kafulafuta seat on the PF ticket in 2011 but lost to James Chishiba who recently defected from the MMD to the ruling party.

He said whichever candidate the party would dopt, the PF were favourites to claim the Kafulafuta seat going by the inroads the party had made in the constituency and in other parts of Copperbelt rural previously dominated by the MMD.

On the raging issue of the removal of fuel and maize subsidies, Mr Mwanawasa admitted that in the short term the move would affect the citizens but called for sacrifice in order to get the long term accrued benefits.

  1. Pat is boarding a leaking and fastsinking ship called PF which is surely not docking at the next port in 2016.

    • I think this info you sharing in public is too private even if politics are a dirty game, which makes me wonder how some not so interlligent ” so called educated Phd holders” can be stupido to think 29 points can never reach higher heights more so be a national leader, what if his 29points is in helping the zambian people and not in being a doctor or an engineer? problem we have in Africa is ubututu whether educated or not, we think one can only make it in life through one door, other than that you are doomed. There are well known computer sharp shooters who even dropped out of school at grade 9 somewhere here who are doing a 1000000 times better than you, Lets be realistic and think rationally before we reveal anything private, ulichikopo sana chewe ayi?

  2. The PF candidate Patrick Ngoma has polled 3 529 votes to beat his nearest rival Eualaria Zulu of the United Party for National Development (UPND) who has polled 967 votes.

    The Movement for Multi-Party Democracy (MMD) candidate Elias Phiri who in the third place has polled 617 votes while United National Independence Party (UNIP) candidate Charles Kanyama has polled 344 votes to come out the fourth in the by-election.

    The National Restoration Party (NAREP) candidate Samuel Sikaonga is the least in the fifth place with 63 votes.

    A total of 5 615 votes were cast and counted from 31 polling stations of the constituency.

    The Feira Parliamentary seat fell vacant when the then MMD Member of Parliament Patrick Ngoma resigned from his position to join the ruling PF.

    • They want to embalm every Zambian so that we stop thinking.

      This is serious issue, but it is being taken lightly. By NOW ZamBeef could have been shut down.

      What are the authorities still waiting for. This is serious matter.

  9. Even in Europe and south Africa, contaminated meat did not lead to closure but withdraw of the products. Toyota had defects with its cars and was not shut down but vehicles were recalled. This is what we call being objective. You deal with the problem not with emotion.

    • Please note that cars cannot be compared to food ! As a consumer, you must realise the greater risk these food additives pose to your health ranging from cancers to genetically transmissible disorders which could end u up having grandchildren with inexplicable mental instability like MCS

  12. As I keep saying, elections are won at the polling booth; not by who shouts the loudest or writes the most vociferously over the Internet! A lesson that seems to be beyond the comprehension of most bloggers on this websites. Fortunately Zambians are perfectly capable of telling sense from nonsense, reality from fantasy. Hear them cry “rigged” like babies! Similarly, refusing to publish views of those who do not agree with you does not and will not change the reality on the ground. Classic example of living in denial.

  14. Being the son of a former President ENDOWS him with political wisdom. We can see from Panji, Wezi, Waza, (Tilyenji), Kaweche, Tito, Castro, Andrew, Henry, James, Mulenga and we still have the two twins to come! Zambia is truly blessed! LOLest!!!!!!

  15. There’s a fine distinction between wisdom and intelligence. I’m not saying PM has wisdom and lacks intelligence. Now Chewe, 29 pts or 305 is better than having never sat behind that desk. Spare small minds if yours is big. Te bonse bafyumfwa mu class, Bambi filabapita.
