Luampa constituency losing parliamentary candidate Josephine Limaata and her Mulobezi counterpart, Patricia Mulasikwanda, Kaoma Central’s Austin Liato and Taundi Chiseke for Mangango all pledged to support the ruling PF despite losing to opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) candidates in the August 11 polls.

Mrs. Limaata, who is former deputy minister in the Ministry of Community Development Mother and Child Health, claimed that PF is still strong in Luampa district in particular and western province as a whole.

PF Mulobezi constituency losing parliamentary candidate Patricia Mulasikwanda said she will work hard to ‘clump down’ UPND structures in the area.

Mr. Taundi Chiseke who contested the Mangango parliamentary seat said he narrowly lost to the opposition but warned that he would work harder to unseat his opponent in 2021.

Kaoma Central constituency’s Austin Liato said he would strengthen the ruling party structures in the area.

ZANIS reports that the quartet said this in separate interviews on the side lines of the inauguration ceremony of President Edgar Lungu and Vice President Inonge Wina at the Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.

“We lost the 2016 parliamentary seats but even though that is the case, we remain loyal to President Lungu and the PF party beyond 2016,” said limata.

The quartet commended government for taking developmental projects to western province, stressing that the region has equally benefited from the national cake as evidenced by infrastructure projects undertaken in the area such as roads, schools, health posts among others.

Yesterday, Chief Justice Ireen Mambilima swore-in President elect -Edgar Lungu and his running-mate Inonge Wina as President and Vice President, after a court bid by opposition UPND leader Hakiande Hichilema contesting results of the August 11 polls was thrown out by the constitutional court.

    • Despite feigning terminal illness when PF were prosecuting him, Liato is now fit to run for Parliament. However, PF will never ever win a seat in WP. People there have been spooked by Sata’s madness and Lungu’s proclivity to drunkenness and debauchery. Hard working rural folk don’t take kindly to gross behaviour that the town bakaponya applaud.

  1. That’s the spirit. One Zambia One Nation. It is Zambia Forward. If you loose you do not start beating up the winners and burn their property. A thought keeps running through my mind #If UPND won would the people in Northern, Luapula, Muchinga, Eastern, Copperbelt and Lusaka started beating up and burning property for people from Southern, Western and North Western Provinces. The answer is No because despite what happened in UPND strongholds they never hit back. They demonstrated maturity because two wrongs can hardly make a right.

    • Your comment is the most confused this side of the elections. Are you UPND? Zambia Forward is the UPND ethos. Dununa Reverse is the operating motto of PF. But then you state that losers should not be beating up winners. If you live in Lusaka, you know that the supposedly winning PF have been hunting down the UPND losers. The upside down mentality of PF is that they cannot believe somebody not voting for them. That’s why PF wants to “clump” (sic) down on UPND in WP.

  2. Barotseland hates thieves. Pf maniplated the just ended election and have used force and not people’s choice to rule again. Crooks/thieves will not find it easy in B/land.

    • Lungu should save his millions of dollars and stop campaigning in WP. PF now has zero MPs after this election, from 3 or 4 before. People of WP are fatigued with PF lies about infrastructure. Stadium? University? The TBZ-Kaoma Road has been a disaster for a long time. And the fake Nkeyema District Council operates from somebody’s rundown old grocery store. PF can only fool some people some of the time.

  5. Many thanks to the PF losers from my home town. Oh no, we won’t be party to stolen winning, come 2021, I would have retired and back home to campaign, there won’t be any sign of PF in my village, especially after being made not to belong to my own country by PF hooligans.

    Please tell the losers to move to Lusaka, Chawama compound needs them for the campaign
