Marketeers at Kitwe’s Chisokone market this afternoon mobbed MMD President Nevers Mumba when he toured the market.
And some taxi drivers in Kitwe have expressed regret for having voted for the Patriotic Front in the 2016 general elections.
The drivers complained to Dr Mumba of been treated like slaves under the PF government.
They said the PF is demanding a lot from them amid the high cost of fuel prices and cost of living.
“We don’t know whether we voted for dictatorship or a democratic government that cares for the people. As things stand the PF government has subjected us to slavery conditions and we regret voting for them.”
“This is the last time we are voting for the PF here in Kitwe, they will not get any of our votes in 2016.”
And Dr Mumba said the concerns of the marketers and the tax drivers are lessons to Zambians not to vote for people who do not know how to govern a country.
He said the PF was voted into office based on fake promises and lies which the people of Zambia are able to see for themselves now.
“The MMD should be voted back into office because you know how the MMD is concerned about the plight of the Marketeers and the tax drivers, Dr. Mumba told the group that mobbed him”.
Meanwhile, Dr Mumba said he is in Kitwe to listen to the concerns of the people as he mobilizes the party for the 2016 general elections.
“The mood is very depressing when people explain what they are going through, the problem we have in Zambia is that we have a government that raised the hopes of Zambians when promises were made that Zambians will have money in their pockets which is not in reality now and the opposite is true” people are now losing Jobs,” Dr Mumba said.
He added, “When you access the three years that PF has been in Government, people are depressed because their hopes are deflected and that is why they are looking around for people to raise their hopes and MMD is the new hope for Zambia, “Dr Mumba said.
Dr Mumba is also in Kitwe to get the views of the people so that they can be included in the party’s working manifesto for the 2016 general elections.
