  1. So what happened to secret ballot and the right to choose ones preferred candidate. It seems the pf are dictatorial to the core. When we say they stole votes and abused opposition pre election we are called names. These are thugs

  2. Very interesting. Even in constituencies where the PF did not win because of the calibre of the candidate picked by it people opted to vote for PF renegades (independents) rather than vote for UPND.
