President Lungu will win by 70%, Western and North Western are no longer UPND Strongholds – Mumbi Phiri

Feature Politics President Lungu will win by 70%, Western and North Western are no...

Lusaka Province Vice PF campaign coordinator Hon. Mumbi Phiri has predicted a 70% win for President Lungu in the forthcoming General elections slated for August 12th, 2021.

Speaking on the PF Interactive Forum, a premium dialogue platform of the Patriotic Front that hosts PF functionaries to discussions of national Importance, in Lusaka this evening, Hon. Phiri who is the immediate past Patriotic Front Deputy Secretary-General said UPND no longer had any strongholds to boast of.

She said the PF had made sufficient inroads in North-Western, Western and Southern Provinces, such that the votes that would come from those areas would shock the UPND.

She said the UPND had lost the plot in their previous so-called strongholds when their leader HH forbid his MPs, Council Chairpersons and Councillors from working with the government of the day which caused them to be non-performing, rendering them ineffective as they were unable to lobby for development for their people.

She guessed this certainly must have caused them to feel it was unfair for them to hold on to positions in which they were not performing because they had been expressly forbidden to lobby for development from President Lungu and the PF Government who manage the resources of the nation.

She said HH insulted his councillors by accusing them of being bought by PF which no doubt angered them and caused even more of them to resign, further compounding the situation for the UPND and rendering them stronghold less.

She said with all those members leaving the UPND in Northwestern and Western Provinces to Join PF, there was logically no way the two areas could be referred to as UPND strongholds anymore.

She said Mr Hichilema and his UPND were totally inexperienced on how to gain ground stating that PF founder President Michael C. Sata when in opposition instructed his MPs to lobby for development from the sitting Ministers when the MMD Government and President Levy Mwanawasa were in power.

She said only development made people want to align to a party and if that party was giving them nothing, then it was just a matter of time before they joined a winning team , which she said was the case with the people in the previous UPND strongholds.

And Mrs. Phiri has charged that the UPND practice social media politics whereas the PF are firmly rooted on the ground.

She said she had spent her time doing door-to-door campaigns with her team which was why she hasn’t been in the media for a while. She said with the amount of development the PF has delivered to the people of Zambia, it is very easy for them to conduct campaigns even now that there are a lot of covid 19 restrictions because all the PF are doing is pointing at what they have done.

She said in Rufunsa for instance where she had been the past couple of days, for the first time since independence, the area was now connected to the national grid. Additionally, she said in Kanakantapa, it is only during the PF administration that the area has had roads constructed. She Said the area now has schools whereas, in the past, parents had to send their children to Kasisi once they got to the secondary school level . She said the development that PF has delivered was the reason they would be voted back into the office on the 12th of August.
She has urged Zambians to turn up en mass on voting day and cast a vote for President Lungu, his running mate Prof. Luo and all PF MPs, Mayors, Council Chairpersons and Councillors

    We wish to put it on record that the Patriotic Front will continue having sleepless nights over the stolen 2016 election that has been witnessed in the history of our country.
    Out of guilt the Patriotic Front will continue paddling lies and unfounded propaganda to divert people from the reality surrounding the rigged election by trying to bury their criminal activities, as was seen from the way the elections were administered and conducted.
    There criminal mentality has collapsed all government institutions and this unfortunately includes the judiciary.
    There is need for clear information on the rigged 11th August, 2016 election, it is owed to the Zambian people including others as we belong to the global village.
    The flip flopping of the…

  3. I won’t say shamelessly, because they don’t know what shame means. These are criminals. These criminals lie to the world because they are criminals by nature and conditioning. They consider this a military site! Shame on you! You will forever be shamed! You have ruined the reputation of the Zambian people in the most terrible way! Shame on you.

  4. KZ the UK based troll has been “on the ground analysing data”. Yes, sure, the same data that Mwanza and the Obese Brothers GBM and CK continuously put forward as ridiculous evidence

  5. What a pathetic liar! After making sure that the total number of registered voters in the UPND strongholds is significantly reduced then they come to conclude that PF has made inroads in the UPND strongholds? These PF people will be shocked that Harry Kalaba, whom they are underrating so much is going to spoil their votes in the Northern part of the country and that will make them not to attain even 40% of the votes. They are so desperate to retain power at all costs just to avoid going to prison for their numerous crimes

  6. It like Sister Mumbi Phiri is blinded by the momentum which late Sata created which made THE PF MIGHTY and every persons choice then. Over the years after his demise the ONCE MIGHTY PF has been vandalized like its PIG to the core and those responsible don’t even see that the once MIGHTY PF has fallen apart and what is holding it is just because they holding to instruments of power. There is no way the once Mighty PF can make significant gains in the Zambezi Basin Provinces, far from it. Those that defected were just there moon lighting or trying to each crumbs from the high table after being very hungry for a long time. In fact as Bob Marley song ” A Hungry Man is Angry Man. With the high levels of poverty created by the ONCE MIGHTY PF how many people can resist even a K20 note? Its…

  7. Come September all these PF cadres who have never known how to run a business will be unemployed and they will turn out like the Doras of this world and will be joining UPND enmasse from December when hunger hits.
