THE Patriotic Front in Lusaka yesterday formed six branches in the central business district with the aim of recruiting more members ahead of the August 11 general elections and also echoing the need to maintain peace.

The branches have been formed along Katunjila, Katondo, Chiparamba, Nkwazi, Panganani and Cairo roads.
PF Lusaka Province chairman Horace Longwe said the ruling party is busy mobilising while some opposition parties are engaged in violent activities.

“You cannot win an election using violence like we saw in Bweengwa. The PF is instead preaching peace. We are a law-abiding political party that believes in democracy.

“Even this meeting we are holding here, we have a police permit. We are not above the law,” Mr Longwe said while displaying the police permit.

He said violence scares away investment and all citizens must, therefore, not engage in it.

“These huge and muscular young men you are seeing here are peace-loving and want to see that this nation develops,” Mr Longwe said.

And Mpulungu ward 23 councillor, who is also Lusaka Province vice publicity secretary, Christopher Shakafuswa, urged the people to retain President Lungu in this year’s election.

“We have a loving and lovable leader in Edgar Chagwa Lungu. Let’s recruit more people to vote for him,” Mr Shakafuswa said.

Others present at the meeting included Lusaka Province youth chairperson Kennedy Kamba, Kabulonga Ward 16 chairman Penjani Chirambo and former Lusaka mayor Daniel Chisenga.

    • You cannot win an election using violence like we saw in Bweengwa, you win an election by storming an international airport with 25T tipper loads of panga weilding goons and beating up anyone on your path, you win an election by beating up gouging people’s eyes in sinda for wearing opposition regalia, you win elections by beating up reporters and urinating in their mouths in chipata, you win an election by shooting at HH in Ndola, you win an election by storming radio stations (including one where your own ka bwalya was baptised in shake shake), you win an election by shooting opposition in mulobezi, you win an election by beating up anyone who wears opposing regalia at bus stops and markets, you win an election by teargassing opposition (some of whom teargas affects their brain so…

    • The teargassing affects their brain so much that they for an alliance with you). You ein an election by blocking opposition from meeting ot travelling, you win an election by blocking ALL opposition from ALL public media unless when you attack them, you win an election by using all your god given strength to accuse everyone else of tribalism and violence, you win an election by suddenly starting to go to church VERY publicly (full coverage) even if you previously never knew what he inside of a church looks like, you win an election by taking pics with the Pope and then literally days later you tell your military wing Zambia Police seleni tubombeko that is how a loving leader wins an election. Don’t worry there another seleni coming SELENI TUVOTEKO

  2. It is too late for PF to mobilise people , their 1.4% they won in January 2015 is long faded, its over. See below:
    (1) Increased load shedding
    (2) High cost of food
    (3) Policy inconstancy
    (4) un fair application of PAO
    (5) Poor economics
    (6) The closing of UNZA & CBU
    (7) Heavy job losses from their strong hold copper belt
    (8) No money in the pockets

  3. @Manager Education, you have very limited number of issues to compete with PF. You don’t have any promise to make to the people. On your list you have issues which does not show what your party will do for them. Now let me help you see the difference with PF:
    (1) You have said “increased load shedding” will be the reason people will not vote for PF. Okay PF is expanding power generation and mid this year, the power challenge will be significantly reduced. Now your party is promising nothing! PF is BUILDING more solar power plants (REA and private), more hydro power plants, more thermal power plants. SO BETWEEN YOU AND PF WHO IS BETTER? Your party only knows how to talk of problems and it does not have solutions
    (2) You have said “High cost of food” that is why people will not vote…

    • blah blah blah we have heard all the empty promises. So by building more power plants is it going to reduce the price of power? Enough of empty campaign promises. In all the 51 years of independence, never has this country seen so much violence and a rule by uneducated rogues that even have more power than the police. Hope you can live with your concience at all the bloodshed that will happen here in our once peaceful nation.

    I think you have no intimation about Zambia , either you are just a kaponya who do not comprehend economics sagaciously but pretending to be in USA. Let me educate Mr Kaponya the above fundamentals are the major economic drivers if did not know, never, muddle with them again ,waunfwa boyi if I may use your language.

    • @manager education, that’s exactly what UPND and its supporters keep on missing.

      The PF is going to the grass roots and explaining what they are doing to address the current problems. Your may discount those solutions as unrealistic or unworkable, but they are being offered to the electorate.
      What is missing, at grass root level, is the UPND alternative – not just to condemn the PF shortcomings.
      Sata and the PF won in 2011 based on what they offered to the electorate, so should the UPND if they want to win in August. It is that simple.

  6. I like the confidence in UPND! Lungu is going na kafoni muminwe. Go to Northern, luapula, muchinga, CB and lusaka convincing pipo. The response you will get is ” Bapolitician bamo bene natubaleke fye ba PF tumone ifyo balacita elyo tuka bafumye mu 2021″ This situation is very bad for HH and his group.

  10. In Tonga they say “Oko nkulila kwamukami” Words, insults, intimidation and under leting is just too much but the day is coming when each one will enter the booth alone and mark the ballot where necessary. REMEMBER, DONCHI KUBEBA. Ni mwishiba palwobe pali ubo bushiku.
