22 of the 32 PF Councillors from Lusaka have endorsed Mpulungu Ward 23 Councillor, Christopher Shakafuswa to stand as mayoral candidate for the Patriotic Front and have since petitioned the Party Central Committee to consider the criteria of experience, someone sellable and would not be learning again for the next 2 years.

The 22 councillors have stated that the people of Lusaka deserve a candidate who has requisite experience in the running of the Council and one who would work well with both the Party and Government in delivering services. The PF Councillors said a sellable candidate should be one who is people-friendly like Mr. Shakafuswa as he has unshakably stood by the ideals and principles of the party and will prioritise service delivery.

In the petition submitted to the party Secretary general yesterday, the 22 Councillors have assured the party that they have gotten to know each other best and developed a working culture that should not be broken by introducing a new mayor who will have to learn the job for the next 2 years and that councillor Shakafuswa is he uniting factor whom they are ready to work with.

Christopher Shakafuswa has been Lusaka City Councillor for 8 years and has chaired various standing Committees of the Council which include Finance, Human Resource and Audit.

Christopher Shakafuswa had in 2016 applied to contest the 2016 mayoral elections but came second during PF intra party selection, and was later the party’s candidate of choice for the Deputy Mayor until the confusion that saw both Tasila Lungu and Christopher Shakafuswa standing down to pave way for the current Lusaka Deputy Mayor.

    • He organised this whole thing and approached the councillors whilst costing him a bit of change to float him.

      I hope his plan backfires spectacularly.

      Thanks

    • How did somebody all the way from Chibombo near kabwe stand in Mpulungu near Luapula and win? So in Mpulungu there are no people? Or is this ward in Lsk?

    • Simply look at that fat face …you can tell by that face that it will the same rubbish …at this rate we will be let with the freeloader Tayali at least he is an outsider wanting change.

    • This person person is part of a family mafia of criminals. He is corrupt and will only steal and destroy Lusaka! His father shakasatan stole from the Katuba constituency with the assistance of this man. Do not destroy Lusaka by endorsing a criminal !

  1. If the man has been endorsed by 22/32 councilors,then i believe he is the most sailable candidate bcoz campain wil easily be done by the same councilors,hence it wil be a walkover by pf.

    • This Shakatan junior is a criminal like his father Shakasatan senior. They stole from constituency of Katuba to fund drinking, prositution etc. Shakasatan senior was voted out as MP of Katuba because of his corruption. There majority of people in Lenje land will warn you about these two criminals!

  2. This is stupidity from PF councilors.We have so many credible people who can do better than this guy ridding his name on his father Jonas Shakafuswa. We have got intelligent, vibrant, sharp, educated, strategic guys who can do better such as Miles Sampa, and Balaam Mwila, not that joke of a guy.In the first place why was he not preferred when he first applied as a Mayor in 2016? He got beaten by the late Mayor meaning he will be worse.Lusaka deserves better and let him undergo the due process of interviews not those fackinn petitions by his fellow dull councilors.Those council committees are just clueless & useless as they are just ceremonial and not different from the traditional indunas for the chiefs who cannot articulate issues in a dynamic way.Lusaka deserves better so adopt him at…

    • CONT’D…
      Lusaka deserves better so adopt him at your own risk.Why can’t he wait for 2021 and stand in Chibombo which is his level? Coz even this guy Chilufya Tayali who suffers from bipolar disorder can do much better.

    • Shakasatan’s father Shakasatan senior was a drinking partner of President Lungu. They go in and out of State House as they please. How can criminals have access to the President. Shakasatan boosts that he is a senior advisor to the president. A criminal with a resume of corruption advising the President!

  3. Hope these people ready coz if he is adopted he has to resign and when he resign he can’t stand upto the time his term comes to an end. So he may loose even what he has at the moment

  4. The guy has worked for it, politically. Do we need a politician right now? I don’t know…. Will he keep sanity in the city or play to the gallery of cadres? I don’t know.. But the answers seem clear.

  5. Charles at 1.2 read the criteria ward names in Lusaka. To enlighten you Mpulungu ward is in Lusaka, just you have Kalomo road in Chilenje does not mean Kalomo road is town of Kalomo on way to Livingstone. Check your facts before you comment.

  6. Another clown! what has he done in his ward? Lusaka deserves better. We are not voting on party lines this time around… adopt him at your own risk.

    • They are thieves scared of a new face to change their plundering of resources..they would rather endorse another dull chap like the one in the photo.

  7. “….have since petitioned the Party Central Committee to consider the criteria of experience, someone sellable and would not be learning again for the next 2 years.”
    These are really daft Councillors no wonder Lusaka is filthy and run by cadres…who learns for 2 years on the job that is not even full time…no wonder Ms T Lungu has not signed that letter.

  8. kekeke..all the councillors will withdraw after being asked..kekeke.cowards..watch the space..that boy can’t be mayor!!

  9. OK, at least let’s adopt this fellow HH. Maybe if he did things himself, he may win a trophy. As if he can win kkkkkk.

    • Naimwe ba ireenbanda language ya ba Kaponya ati ni PhD! As I have said before, this position of Mayor can be the ascendency to being the president (re Cobra, RB, Chirac, Turkish President) they all landed the top job because of the way they executed the Mayoral job. Mushota has never held a paid job in her life- she has studied several years so that she can remain in Scotland! Who goes to work in Scotland where education is free, crime is rife, drug addiction is a top scourge, pay is low unlike London where they pay ”London Weighting.” Limbi mulemufwishako bwino Mushota!

  10. SHAKAFUSWA CANNOT BE ADOPTED BY PF. HE IS FROM A WRONG TRIBE AND TRIBAL GROUPING. TH PF ARE LOOKING FOR EITHER BEMBA (SAMPA) OR EASTERNER (FISHO MWALE).

  11. Guy is from Bantu Botatwe with HH. Surely shud term his dreams coz PF isn’t for groups associated with Tongas. Miles failed to stay with Tonga party, why should we give PF to these Bantus. Moment Tasila opposed him, message should have been clear.

  12. HE IS LENJE AND NOT FIT TO HOLD ONE OF HIGHEST OFFICE IN THE LAND. TONGA LIKE PIPO DONT GO TO THAT LEVEL. EDGAR WONT ALLOW THAT. WORSE LOZIS LIKE GIVEN LUBINDA WILL FIGHT HIM TOOTH AND NAIL

  13. We do not judge a person by the looks alone. For this position Education also is essential because he/ she will be representing the great city of Lusaka in many come-together and able to spell Trash.

  14. Shakafuswa has been royal to the party unlike miles sampa who goes by the wind.Shakafuswa is stable and hes gained experience . He deserves this job.

  15. This man is a criminal. As an investigative journalist I have interviewed several people in Katuba who testify that this man is corrupt! He stole from Katuba constituency with his father. I witnessed the celebration party held by the Shakafuswa’s when the former late MP for Katuba died. There is a rumor that Shakafuswa paid a man called Bronson to poison the late MP’s food. There was chanting at the death celebration that they used the late MP’s nephew to kill me.

  16. Shakafusha cannot win PF Lusaka city.Like Mushota said above,this guy forced his fellow councillors to endorse him and that is nonsense!!
    PF must talk to Mrs Maureen Mwanawasa who has left UPND to stand on PF since she is in very good terms with President Edgar Lungu or PF can adopt Miles Sampa!!!Nobody can defeat Maureen Mwanawasa or Miles Sampa if one of them stood on PF ticket!!
    IT WILL BE ANOTHER DEFEAT FOR HH’S UPND WHO CLAIMED TO HAVING WON 2016 ELECTIONS!!HOW HH WON IN 2016,NOBODY KNOWS BECAUSE SINCE THEN,UPND HAS LOST SEVERAL BY ELECTIONS TO PF ACROSS ZAMBIA!!

  17. HH will kiss the ground again. UPND will always be associated with tongalism until the time when a bemba or easterner takes over the top leadership.

    Remember that only a bemba or an easterner can rule Zambia.

  18. I will only vote for Mr Elias Mpondela again like, together with about 6000+ other people voted in the 2016 Lusaka Mayoral election because i believe he is the One with the vision which can transform Lusaka from a shambolic capital city it is today into a marvelous city to attain its rightful place as a Capital of Zambia. Most ,if not all, those names being floated for this position are just politically correct individuals without a real plan for Lusaka as a City. God bless you all, Good night fellows…
