Zambia Direct Democracy Movement (ZDDM) president Edwin Sakala says he is going to apply to stand on the Patriotic Front (PF) ticket during the Kasenengwa Constituency by election.
Speaking during a walk in interview with ZANIS in Chipata today, Mr Sakala said he will apply for adoption on the PF ticket as he wants to finish all the developmental projects left by late Victoria Kalima.
He said he hails from the constituency and is fully aware of the challenges which the people of Kasenengwa are currently facing such as bad roads and lack of bridges among other needs.
Mr Sakala said he has chosen to apply on the PF ticket so as to assist President Edgar Lungu deliver development to the people.
He said President Lungu is very hardworking and committed hence the need to support him if his dreams to develop Zambia are to be realized.
Mr Sakala said he understands the PF manifesto very well and is hopeful that the PF party will adopt him.
