THE Patriotic Front (PF) does not want to sweat in 2016 when Zambia goes to the polls, Lusaka Province chairman Geoffrey Chuumbwe has said.

Mr Chuumbwe says the PF has already begun campaigning so that it is voted back into power in 2016.

He was speaking in Sibuyunji on Sunday when other PF district officials in the province converged to give the newly-created district morale support.

The other officials present at the meeting were from Lusaka, Chongwe, Feira, Kafue and Chilanga.

Mr Chumbwe said there is need for the party to start mobilising women and youths so that the party sails through in 2016.

“We don’t want to be sweating in 2016, so we have started campaigning by first mobilising women and youths,” Mr Chuumbwe said.

He described women and youths as the backbone of the PF.

Mr Chuumbwe also urged PF members to stop fighting for positions in the party but instead remain united in support of President Sata.

He said the PF members ought to love one another the same way President Sata loves the Zambian people.

“Let us love one another, this is what will make the PF to grow bigger,” Mr Chuumbwe said.

He said PF is one big family and that members must emulate President Sata’s love for the country.

And speaking earlier, PF Lusaka district chairperson Goodson Banda said the ruling party will win the 2016 general elections with a landslide victory like Zimbabwe’s ZANU-PF and Robert Mugabe have won that country’s elections.

Mr Banda said the PF cannot afford to lose the 2016 general elections and urged members to continue working hard and mobilising the party.

“We will win the same way Mugabe has won. We will beat the opposition by over 60 percent. So we must work hard and remain united,” he said.

PF Sibuyunji district chairperson for women Inonge Banda said the ruling party has come to stay in Zambia.

Mrs Banda said women will play their role of mobilisation like they did during the 2011 general elections.

    • Your best campaign is delivering on your promises.

      other than that, all your efforts will be futile

    Your honeymoon is long gone, you BUFI will not work anymore. We now know your party is that of ONLY LIES and does not Intend to develop this Nation. With the current crop of Leadership, you’re gone…

  5. Its pointless to start campaigning. You have failed to deliver, and instead of pushing your energies towards development and delivery of your promises you want to campaign. What will you campaign about? Failed promises? You will be the first to rule for only 5years……..and you are sweating coz we dont believe you anymore

  8. What a joke!

    PF have already shot themselves in the foot with BUFI election promises, and now they have shot themselves in the OTHER foot with subsidy removal.

    YOU DO NOT HAVE A LEG TO STAND ON!

    Yo will not sweat in 2016, YOU WILL ROAST! And all that will be left of PF and Sata is a heap of ashes.

    Lies and no plan cant win elections.

  9. If you think this is the way you are going to lead the nation,then forget 2016.So you want to waste time campaigning in rural areas because you know that the voters in urban areas knows that you have failed.Yes,its easy to rig in rural areas but who will allow that?Our democracy is no joke!!

  11. PF all you stand for is politicking, why start campaigning with two solid years ahead of you, when do you deliver on the much need development in this country. Continue thinking of talking as that is the basis of campaigning and you will see the results come 2016.

  12. WISHFULL THINKING INDEED! ONLY A FAILED PARTY CAN MAKE SUCH STATEMENTS. WHY TALK ABOUT CAMPAIGNS NOW INSTEAD OF DELIVERING ON THE PROMISES YOU MADE? HOW ARE YOU GOING TO CAMPAIGN WHEN THE LIES YOU TOLD IN 2011 ARE STILL FRESH IN PEOPLE’S MINDS AND STILL HAUNTING YOU? DON’T TAKE PEOPLE FOR GRANTED. COME 2016 OR WHATEVER TIME IT WILL BE, YOU WILL BE PAID BACK IN YOUR OWN COIN.

  16. 1) “Mr Chuumbwe says the PF has already begun campaigning”

    So given “PF’s strong democratic values” I suppose Govt will now allow opposition parties to do the same – to meet freely and hold rallies as they wish?

    2) “Goodson Banda said the ruling party will win the 2016 general elections with a landslide victory just like ZANU-PF and Robert Mugabe.”

    That sounds more like a threat! Does he mean PF will win by disenfranchising the urban population and by having small rural poling stations record 1 vote for PF every 2 seconds just like in Zimbabwe?

    and

    3) “He said PF members ought to love one another the same way President Sata loves the Zambian people.”

    Nice thought, only please tell the President to stop insulting everyone and the SG to stop sowing blame and…

  17. Zambians must never be taken for granted again. They made a huge blunder by voting PF in power. The time to correct this anomaly is at the polls. Make sure this den of vipers is wiped out of the political scene. What message are they coming up with to sway us into voting them? We now know they are liars, disrespectful, arrogant and insane. We need sober minded professionals with a burning desire to transform the economy.

  18. The best thing you could do to prevent that sweat you are giving as an excuse is to deliver on your promises, that will be your insurance, no need to scream or bring gifts to people, your delivery will have conviced the people to vote for you, by starting now, you are neglecting your work in developing the country, for instead of being in the field for the right job, you are in there for the wrong job which is not right, please stop and concetrate on giving the masses what you promised, better jobs, housing health care and many other important life serving duties.

  20. This is PF greatest mistake that WILL cost them the 2016 elections. Focus on developing the country and not compaigns because these developments will have greater effect than telling us lies. We are Zambians we are not as gullible as the Zimbabweans. Wake up PF!!!!!!!!

  21. You will surely sweat, whether you like it or not because you know you came to power through lies of 90 days promises and many more. I think you need not waste the little energy in campaigns which all indications are telling us you are losing. Spare it for the inevitable court appearances after you have gone.

    Starting campaigns this early is an admission of failure. Your works and fulfillment of promises should campaign for you.

  22. You will Not sweat P.F, as long as You tackle Corruption not only outside but within the party itself. Nimvela “not sure if true”, ati kuli ma Chief cadre, bali involved na ma trucks yabo mu scandal yakuba Copper. If TRUE, letani Sergeant Bwalya na mfuti zikali, balize’ mfuti, ba paye aba Bantu, ba wononga chalo na economic sabotage- No Favour!!

  23. A party that wants to generate bye-elections at the expense of development, a party that is not ashamed of suppressing democracy, a party that does not apologise when it’s carders go on a beating spree, a party that cannot accept defeat in bye elections a party that insults traditional chiefs, allows perpetrators of violence walk free….can someone honestly tell me how it got voted into power…it’s a sad story

  25. With a performance short of convincing, one that can be summed up by looking at the confusion one observes with the painting of public transport, the PF will really struggle to win the 2016 elections. With the ECZ more independent than ever, and an amateurish performance with economic issues, we really have a mouthful coming, buckle up, get your bedsheet and a box of popcorn!
