Speaking when she met the Kuta (Induna full council) at the Litunga’s palace Ms. Nawakwi said the demands for equality in the sharing of national resources are genuine and need a pragmatic leader to resolve the current challenges being faced in the country.

She said it was the duty of the public to ensure that they put in office a person not based on gender, tribe region or religion but a person capable of ensuring that the needs of the people are taken care of.

She explained that she was offering herself as a candidate not because she had all the solutions to the challenges but that she was willing to work with everyone in the country to find solutions to the challenges.

She further charged other candidates have been going round bragging about their credentials and that they are the best take over but hers was a call to the people to ensure that they vote without emotions and judge every candidate accordingly and judge their capabilities.

She observed that the country cannot continue in its current path and that there is need for collective answers involving everyone because people have different solutions depending on their circumstances.

Ms Nawakwi stated that if people made collective decisions the complaint of inequality will be the thing the past as that would lead to everyone being part of the solution.

And the opposition leader has observed the uniqueness of western province as regards traditional governance system which she said can be used to improve the lives of people in the province.

She said all the provinces in the country were endowed with different natural resources which are supposed to be used to develop the provinces and Western Province was not different.

Meanwhile the Ngambela’s Kuta has advised who ever gets in to office after the January 20th presidential elections to ensure that the many issues affecting the province are dealt with expeditiously including the issue of the barotse agreement of 1964.

And the Kuta has demanded that the findings of the Rodger Chongwe commission of inquiry be made public.

Speaking when opposition FDD President Edith nawakwi paid curtesy call on the Litunga, the Indunas seating as a Kuta (full council) said the people of Western Province are tired of promises which remain unfulfilled once people ascend to power.

Induna Imandi who spoke on behalf of the Kuta said the people of western province have made their position clear on a number of issues which include the high poverty levels and the Barotse agreement among others.

He explained that all the people want in the province is a fair share of the national cake which would help them alleviate the high poverty levels experienced by the local people.

On the Barotse agreement Induna Imandi said the people Barotse land made their views clear during the sittings of the Commission of Inquiry which should be made public by anyone who comes into office.

He said people are tied of the arrests and shootings hence the need for whoever comes into office to deal with the matter conclusively so that their children can stop agitating for secession.

He noted that the people calling for the secession of Barotse land from Zambia have seen the inequality in which the national cake is shared and the suffering of the people in the province something he said should came to an end.

And Induna Inete encouraged the opposition leader who is the only female candidate to compete with the men on equal footing.

He noted that Barotse Royal Establishment is a perfect model of decentralization as the Kingdom has been practicing that for over 400 years and that the opposition party should effectively sale their ideals as that is what will convince people to vote for her.

The opposition leader who was in the province for 4 days held successful meetings with groups of party members as well as the Litunga and Indunas.

  1. Bull dog tenacity. Edith you’re giving it a good shot and you’re really a good speaker. You needed to join one of the promising candidates in the opposition so that PF has a good run. Am sure PF is smiling as opposition will split the votes due to foolishness and greed. Edigar may scoop it even marginally on that score as each opposition leader wants plot 1. They can’t just easily come together and remove these tribalistic foolish hooligans. Edigar go get it with your thugs, opposition is sleeping.

  2. Refresh your memories(sept2011 results) and do your homework for jan 2015:

    Nominee/party/popular vote/ percentage
    1.MCS/ PF/ 1,170,966 / 41.98%
    2.RB/ MMD/ 987,866 / 35.42%
    3.HH/ UPND/ 506,763/ 18.17%

  3. “He noted that Barotse Royal Establishment is a perfect model of decentralization as the Kingdom has been practicing that for over 400 years and that the opposition party should effectively sell their ideals as that is what will convince people to vote for her.”

    Politicians could learn something from Democracy 101 in action. Chuckle.

  4. The leader to rebuild trust and restore Nawakwi and Sata’s brocken promises is HH, young, dedicated, educated, high integrity and un tented by previous corrupt governments.

  5. I hope voters will be wise and bring in office a sober and serious govt, UPND, and give the madcap crazy PF the boot. It’s time the nightmare ended. A confirmed alcoholic for president? Hell No!!

  6. If Nawakwi were to become a Republican President, then the women of Zambia will have to lock-up their dear husbands and boy-friends for fear of an invasive female predator – leopard hungry for men on the loose.
