  2. These bye-elections should have been cancelled in view of corona. There’s no social distance at campaign rallies. And not only that. The newly elected MPs will only serve for a few months before parliament is dissolved. Waste of taxpayers’ money

  3. Democracy doesn’t end because of Corona. There are measures in place and all participants should abide by them. If we cancelled these elections the same clowns commenting above would claim that we are trying to avoid losing. So please just stop. Whichever way your tribal party is losing any way

  5. We are just expressing our opinion. Of course PF you are the authority, the controlling people. You decide everything. Go ahead and dish out free mealie and money to the mwansabombwe and Lukashya electorate. Every well-informed Zambian knows PF cannot win a free and fair election. Next year it won’t be possible to dish out free mealie meal and money in every constituency

  7. You have some stagnant minds that see what is happening around them in their various communities and even more critically in their individual homes but refuse to coordinate what they are seeing and experiencing with their brains as to translate it into action that frees them of woes! See the language of impunity one PF zealot keeps spewing in his comments! I pray that Zambians finally wake up to justifiably claim their pound of flesh once the dehumanizing by PF is removed.

  8. I’m concerned with lukashya because I’m the son of that constuency why the daughter to GBM she moved from kasama central and now she wants to contest lukashya why? If it’s me on a panel I can’t consider her .
