Lusambo tells the church congregants that he will re-contest his seat

Feature Politics Lusambo tells the church congregants that he will re-contest his seat

Former Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo has affirmed that he will re-contest the Kubishi Parliamentary Seat.

Hon Lusambo lost his parliamentary seat last week as the Constitutional Court upheld the decision of the Ndola High Court to declare his election void.

Speaking when he and the former PF Secretary General Davies Mwila attended a church service at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Kabushi constituency, Mr Lusambo told the church congregants that the court nullified his seat because of his generosity.

“The preacher was talking about if you have something, you need to share with those in need. In court, we were told that we did wrong by giving to those in need, giving to the people of Kabushi, giving to the church. But where we are coming from, the president we worked with Edgar Chagwa Lungu told us that if you want to live in harmony with people, the little you have, if your neighbour doesn’t have, share with them,” he said.

“I know you people of Kabushi won’t allow me to give in, so I want to tell you that I am the one contesting. The job we have started in Kabushi is massive and we can’t give up until we finish the job we started.”

And former party Secretary General said Hon Lusambo has a heart for the people, adding that the works of the Bulldozer speak for him.

Hon Mwila also reminded the congregants of the works that the PF government under Dr Edgar Lungu had done.

“This man has a heart for the people. His works speak for him. You have worked for six years and people have seen your works……We left fuel at 16 its now at 28,” he said.

  1. Politicians Politicians stop using the church for your greedy ends! Stop using the Church platform to deliver political messages. Just like you have told Chiefs not to scream political partisanship dont use the church for support. Lusambo just go and stand on your own. If you want to pray for the seat do it privately. Christian nation? Jesus Christ doesnt know that Zambia is a christian nation. How are you a Christian nation? Do you use any of Christ’s teachings in your laws or in your political practices? Definitely No.

    • UPND is not responsible for the increases in fuel prices. International pressures have led to increases in fuel prices throughout the whole world. Therefore, defeated and bitter PF officials must stop lying. Lusambo and Mwila stop telling people lies about fuel increases. Even in Europe and USA, fuel increases keep on escalating and, it is more worse there than in Zambia. PF officials are losers and, please, accept that you have nothing to offer Zambians. Viva UPND and viva HH. Then, viva all Zambians.

    • Educated Fellow…truth is the situation has remained the same but ERB has reduced the price of fuel… explain why? Maybe you don’t know? It’s because of the impending by election. Soon after this election fuel may to 30 Kwacha. Just save this post to prove me wrong. I said it during the Kabwata by election and it happened.

  9. It will be a nice ride seeing you fade.. and the unfortunate part is that the upnd will be employing your area youths to take part in the census of population and housing,,, hopefully they give them a handsome package so that they shun you.

  10. They wanted my brother out of the picture because he is a threat. The upnd know they can’t win in kabushi in a free and fair election. They know lusambo is kabushi and kabushi is lusambo. Kana up0n0kwe

  11. We are learning some weird political dynamics of the UPND Govt. We can speculate that the lowering of the fuel cost is a repeat of the Kabwata by-election scenario. For how long will this Govt sustain stabilization of fuel prices to be translated into lowering of transport costs and bus fares? The higher prices of fertilizers affects all Zambians including the traditional agriculturalists in Southern province. Kayatu poti dzuwa izachomela.

  12. Apparently they left fuel at 16 Kwacha, but what did you find the price of fuel at? This Mwila guy is dummer than a box of nails. So many things wrong with that statement I’m just glad these guys are out of office

  13. Really laughable..now these clowns want public sympathy, this is the clown who was wiping your a$$es two years ago for breaking covid rules!!

  14. I am PF but I know we have serious jokers in our party, both the leadership and this person they are trying float again, he is not popular in Kabushi at all, people still throng him thinking he will continue dishing out the cash which he was doing before, they don’t know that he now owes even tailors. Lets be serious as PF please, we can not continue making mistakes after mistakes
