Drumming up support for Banda in Chiparamba area of Kasenengwa Constituency on Monday afternoon, President Lungu said he would ensure that Banda delivers and that if he would fail he will deal with him.
He said if the people give him another person other than Banda to work with in Kasenengwa he will fail to work with that person.
President Lungu said most opposition political parties do not want to work with the ruling party and urged the people not to gamble during next month’s by-election.
“We declared Kasenengwa a district because we are in a hurry to develop,” he said.
President Lungu said he was disappointed to learn that some people were asking whether Sensio Banda was Chewa or Ngoni.
He said it was not important to ask about Banda’s tribe because there were no tribes in PF.
President Lungu said in the next two weeks he would go round the country to see to it that farming inputs were distributed across the country.
He also urged the people of Kasenengwa to campaign and vote in a peaceful manner.
President Lungu urged PF members to welcome new members.
