Former provincial minister Daniel Munkombwe has been on the campaign trail for United Party for National Development (UPND) in Southern Province. Mr Munkombwe, who paraded before the public UPND parliamentary candidate Mathews Jere and mayoral candidate Eugene Mapuwo, urged them not to shun the electorates once voted into office.
“The people that you see in front of you are your employers and your masters, always never forget and abandon them because if you do, I’ll be the first one to denounce you and ask them to chuck you out of the office,” he said.
And UPND chairperson for elections Ackson Sejani, has urged people of Kasiya ward in Livingstone constituency to vote for leaders who champion peace and national unity during the 11 August general elections.
Mr Sejani said the people of Livingstone constituency should go out in large numbers and vote for continuity of peace and development.
He was speaking at Mahululu clinic in Livingstone on Monday when he addressed a rally to drum up support for UPND presidential, parliamentary and local Government candidates.
Mr Sejani was accompanied by former Southern Province minister Daniel Munkombwe, former Livestock and fisheries deputy minister Lackson Kazabu and Chisekesi farmer and businessman Michael Couvaras
He said the people of Zambia had a lot of trust in the UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema and were more than ready to give him the mandate of running the affairs of the country.
“That time to cast the vote has come, people must move in masses to go and cast their vote and this time around HH will carry the day. If you want to see development that you have been yearning for, then you know the right party to vote for because you know the people with a
vision,”Mr Sejani said.
He said Zambians had a chance this year to wage a second war of liberation because they have been deprived of good leadership and development.
