  1. Enough is enough. We can all see the failures of upnd. Do you want to risk another upnd failure there? It is now time to engage wako ni wako. Vote along the lines of tribal and party loyalty. Pf is and will always be a majority Eastern northern copperbelt and lusaka party

  2. Mr. President CDF does not belong to Chikota nor you Sir. It belongs to the zambian people . Do not make us believ that if Chikota loses there will be no CDF Sir. That is not true . Whether we have a mayor from PF , UPND, of Fred Mmembe’s party CDF will still be there. Church Elder must tell the truth.
