Patriotic Front Chiengi Member of Parliament Benson Kapaya has called for peaceful campaigns in the August 19 Mumbotuta ward local government by-election.

Addressing scores of PF supporters at Changwe Lungo Primary School in Milenge yesterday, Brig Gen Kapaya said the PF government had performed well since it assumed office in September, 2011.

The Chiengi Law maker who is also Luapula Province Minister said it was for this reason that the people of Milenge should vote for the ruling party in the forth-coming Mumbotuta ward by-election.

Three political parties are participating in the by-election namely the ruling Patriotic Front (PF), the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) and the Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD).

Brig Gen Kapaya urged the cadres to go flat out and campaign for the PF candidate Gevason Mumba who is competing against UPND’s candidate Joseph Mbewe and Gosten Mumba standing on the MMD ticket.

Brig Gen Kapaya said if elected Mr Mumba would propel the PF vision of delivering development and increasing its membership throughout the country.

“Let’s campaign peacefully, what we want are votes not violence so I’m urging you to desist from any violent activities as PF supporters, we should lead by example that we are a peaceful party committed to developing this country,” said Brig Gen Kapaya.

Meanwhile, Brig Gen Kapaya cautioned the people of Milenge not listen to opposition lies about the health of President Sata whom they allege was not feeling well.

“The president is in good health, he is the one governing this country whether the opposition likes it or not so let’s go and tell the people that our president is very much alive and that they shouldn’t buy what the opposition is saying,” he said.

  1. Bri. gen. Kapaya; stop lying about the president s health unless that area you are campaigning in has no television service, because the last time zambians viewed him on T V he did not look the picture of health. secondly; whether the people vote for someone in the opposition it is the duty of the government to develope every corner of the country even those that are under opposition; after all it is not PF money that is used to develope but tax payers money which is paid even by the opposition: if you want peaceful elections; keep the PF thugs you guys bring by the truck full to destabilise elections.

  2. Quiz for today:
    Can you spot any untrue statement?
    1. “The president is in good health, he is the one governing this country whether the opposition likes it or not so let’s go and tell the people that our president is very much alive and that they shouldn’t buy what the opposition is saying,”
    2. “Let’s campaign peacefully, what we want are votes not violence so I’m urging you to desist from any violent activities as PF supporters, we should lead by example that we are a peaceful party committed to developing this country,”
    3. Addressing scores of PF supporters at Changwe Lungo Primary School in Milenge yesterday, Brig Gen Kapaya said the PF government had performed well since it assumed office in September, 2011.

    • The Gen is correct.I have known him as a person of true words.he enjoys progress in his activities,so so he not telling pipo lies.Let Zambia develop we are laggaing behind please.Let us develop this is our country and we need progress. Thank u dear zambians

  3. What academic qualifications do you need to be a Bri. General. Im asking because the coherence in speech is lacking. Let alone logical analysis. With this level of lacking analysing reality can this fosil plan and win a war. What more of development related issues. SATA if fine! Where? In the grave? Come out clean and the people of Luapula that they need to think of another president.
