Opposition Christian Democratic Party (CDP)) president Dan Pule has appealed to political parties participating in the forthcoming Bangweulu constituency by-election to desist from engaging in acts of violence.

Speaking to journalists shortly after witnessing the filing in of his party’s aspiring candidate John Kabila, Dr. Pule advised political parties to engage in issued-based campaigns.

He said politics of violence should be avoided at all cost adding that the electorate should be giving an opportunity to elect their preferred candidates freely.

Dr. Pule said his party will base its campaign on issues affecting the wellbeing of the local people.

He cited education, roads, health and infrastructure as some of the issues the CDP candidate will address if elected as Bangweulu constituency Member of Parliament (MP).

And CDP aspiring candidate John Kabila has pledged to work towards uplifting the living standards of the people of Bangweulu constituency.

Mr. Kabila alleged that the constituency has not recorded any meaningful development in a long time now.

He said his first task will be improving the road infrastructure and network in the constituency.

He lamented that most of the roads in the constituency were in a deplorable state and need urgent attention.

The Bangweulu parliamentary seat fell vacant following the death of its area MP Chifita Matafwali on May 20 this year.

The late Mr. Matafwali died at Jehangir Hospital in India where he was undergoing treatment.

The Electoral Commission of Zambia set August 6, 2015 as the date for the Bangweulu parliamentary by-election.

Campaigns were expected to start yesterday afternoon after the filing in of nominations is closed.

A total of seven candidates are jostling for the Bangweulu seat. These are from the CDP, Patriotic Front (PF), United Party for National Development (UPND), National Restoration Party (NAREP), Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) and two independent candidates.

  1. Christians are always going on about how Jesus died for our sins, but if he came back 3 days later then he didn’t die at all; more like being in a brief coma, which is a drag, but not exactly the ultimate sacrifice that the crucifixion is cracked up to be.

    • What is death and how long does it take for someone to die? Can someone be said to be alive after they have been dead for three days?

      Jesus for sure died and that is why they took his body off the cross and did not break his bones because he was already dead. They passed his body to his people so that they could bury his body. \if those not very educated people of Jesus’ time knew when someone had died, what would really change today just because we are more academically gifted?

      Jesus died and rose from the dead the third day!

    • During that the time of Jesus it was not possible to prove that someone is really dead, it is also possible that he did not die at all and simply went into a deep come to the extent that his body stopped responding. It is not possible also that the man on the cross was not Jesus, remember others were helping him to carry the cross and he could have simply sneaked away and then his relatives replaced him in the tomb. Jesus was a very clever man and he could not easily be caught and treated in that manner without a plan to sneak away.

    • @1 I think you praise death everyday like Edgar and Anthony, without someone dying those would have remained pagans. But now since Chilufya Sata & Chilufya Mata, died and made those PF success, there is no way they can fore-sake Jesus.

  2. Pule has messed up his Lake shore resort. He should just sell it to a serious investor. How can you run a nation if you cant run a hotel.
