Start campaigning, adopted PF candidates told

Feature Politics Start campaigning, adopted PF candidates told

Western province Patriotic Front (PF) acting chairperson, Glenn Kalimbwe has implored all candidates adopted for positions of Member of Parliament and council chairpersonship to start campaigning extensively for the ruling party.

Mr. Kalimbwe said all the candidates should work as a team in their various constituencies adding that ‘sleep time is over’ as the battle field is now open.

He said this during the consultative meeting between all the adopted candidates in the 19 constituencies and the party officials at the provincial level in the region yesterday.

Mr. Kalimbwe, who is also party mobilization coordinator for PF, said the provincial officials will not start congratulating the adopted candidates until such a time when the party has scooped all seats in the province.

And adopted candidates for the positions of members of parliament for Nkeyema and Liuwa constituencies, Fridah Luhila and Mwangala Mwenda expressed gratitude that the highest organ of the party has confidence in them.

The duo said they were ready to start the campaigns and will endeavour to explain what the newly launched PF manifesto means in improving the living standards of the people in their constituencies.

They expressed optimism that they will scoop their seats in the August 12, 2021 general elections.

The purpose of the consultative meeting was to have a roadmap on how the ruling party will conduct its campaigns in Western province.

  1. The campaign has not yet been given a go ahead by the electoral commission of Zambia. Is the police now allowing it?

  2. PF is dishing out Money to buy votes becoz it has no Campaign message for 2021 Elections. So those adopted should be given “twusaka twandalama ” to buy Votes. PF has no meaningful successes to point to or talk about. All they know is:”Uubomba Mwibala Alya Mwibala” which is Corruption entrenched in PF.

  5. We have no time to waste. Start selling yourselves to the people, in line with covid restrictions.

    Tarino doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome is madness. You are a f00l because by now you should know that all your tribal and hateful comments will be moderating. And yet you choose to play naivety. Fuseke

  6. This is very unfortunate because the Party in Government shouldn’t be in the forefront to contravene provisions of the Electoral Act and the Constitution. The official campaign period is from the date of filing nominations. Davies Mwila has allowed aspiring candidates to start campaigns and some are already spending colossal sums of money. If they don’t get adopted they will go it alone because they’ve already spent. Davies Mwila has failed to instill the levels of discipline that Wynter Kabimba did in the PF. The PF will go into this election more divided because of the poor performance of the Secretariat. There are already problems in Kankoyo were warra man is busy with brown envelopes. The altercation that resulted in the shooting of 1 person has been caused by fake promises from…

  7. The altercation that resulting in the shooting of 1 person has been caused by fake promises from aspiring candidates. Please stop it!

  8. PLEASE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA, GET MORE MONEY FROM PF CAMPAIGNERS AND IF HE/ SHE COMES EMPTY HANDED JUST TELL HIM/HER THAT WALOBE LYAUMA. ONCE THEY FINISH PAYING OUT, LET US TELL THEM ATI KULONGA BEBELE.

  9. Campaigning for further 5 years of misery. More debt, lawlessness, corruption and convict lungu getting more richer. Inflation and exchange rate shooting up.

    No medicines in hospitals

  10. Campaigning is not only through rallies. for instance, one can campaign on social media (upnd’s favourite) or you can campaign through a radio programme. there are many ways one can do it before official announcement by ECZ. Muleishiba utuntu that’s why you lose.

  11. That’s a telling remark from KZ: “No time to waste”. I guess he means no time to waste to empty the country’s coffers! Before the corrupt PF bunch gets booted out on August 12!

  12. M’membe will be number 2, after President Lungu. HH will be distant third. He has already given up.
