Mutati, Nakacinda and MMD Muchinga constituency candidates[/caption
MMD President Felix Mutati completed his campaign tour for MMD candidates in Central Province with a call for peaceful campaigns and unity among party members in the Province.
Mr Mutati campaigned for candidates in Serenje Central, Chitambo, Muchinga and Mkushi North Constituencies.
Speaking at a rally in Muchinga the former Commerce Minister called on the people in the area to vote for the MMD candidate Howard Kunda whom he described as a dedicated and hard working MP who had put the people of Muchinga first when he was elected to complete his late father's term in 2012.
He said Mr Kunda was incorruptible as he stood fame to overtures from the ruling party when they wanted him to dump his Party and join them because he believed that the people of Muchinga elected him to represent their interest and not his own interests.
He said Mr Kunda had among other things continued with projects which were initiated by his father and many of them are bearing fruits as evidenced by the completion of the first secondary school in the constituency and completion of over 10 clinics to ease the access of medical services.
He said there could be somewhere he could have gone wrong but that it is human for one to error and that the people should look at the many good things which outweigh the bad and forgive their "son".
In Mkushi North were he went to drum up support for Lucy Changwe the MMD President said people had seen for themselves what has happened to the projects she initiated before she was voted out.
Mr Mutati said he had worked with Ms Changwe and knows that she is a hard worker who ensured that her people in Mkushi North got their share of the cake during her time as MP.
He said Ms Changwe personally inspected developmental projects as she consistently travelled to the constituency to ensure that work was progressing well.
He said people in the constituency can easily point at what she did during her time and works on the projects like the hospital which she left at a window level has stored just like many other projects.
Mr Mutati attended a rally in Serenje Central where he told voters to remember what they were promised by the immediate past MP and point at what he has managed to deliver.
He said the former MP came with flowery promises which has failed to deliver and his MP would help create employment in the constituency using some of his experience as a former council Chairperson something he said he has already started doing through the building of a lodge and community schools in the area.
He also went to Chitambo constituency to drum up support for former MP Mushili Malama.
Meanwhile Mr Mutati paid courtesy calls to traditional leaders to consult on developmental issues in the area.
He said his visits to the constituencies would have been incomplete without finding out what challenges the people in the area were going through and taking the massage to his partner in the alliance Edgar Lungu.
He said as a leader in an alliance he wanted to consult and help take the massage to the President because the essence of the alliance was based on the development of the country.
On the political violence Mr Mutati said elections must be held under a peaceful environment to allow the flow of ideas.
He said opposing camps should not resort to violence because attacking an individual on grounds of belonging to a different party was uncalled for because doing so would be like fighting your own relative.
He said as opposed to exchanging punches elections are a time of exchanging ideas and that the only fights people should be seeing is a fight of ideas which will see the best ideas win.
