PF’s Chibuye for Roan, Mambwe for Bahati

The Patriotic Front has picked Luanshya district commissioner Joel Chibuye as the party’s candidate for the Roan parliamentary by-election scheduled for April 11.

The ruling party has further picked Charles Chalwe Mambwe for the Bahati by-election to be held on the same date.

PF secretary general Davies Mwila announced the development at a briefing in Lusaka today following the Central Committee meeting held earlier to consider the adoptions.

For the Kafue Council chairperson by-election, the party has adopted Brig Gen Simakoloyi H. Moono.

“Let me emphasize that all those who have not been adopted are hereby directed to support the adopted candidates and remain loyal to the Party. We do not expect to have any of our members standing as an Independent Candidate,” said Mwila.

“His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and the entire Central Committee has thanked all who applied and encouraged them to remain focused and Committed to the Party. Let me also reaffirm the Party’s position that no one will be ferried from other parts of the Country to go and campaign in areas where by-elections are being held. The respective Party structures and members in these areas will lead the campaigns on the ground until the day of voting. The Party also commits itself to  non-violent campaigns. Ours is to carry out issue-based campaigns, promoting the rich promises captured in our Party manifesto.”

      In order to avoid humiliation by an obvious loss, Chishimba is scared to float himself as a candidate and has gone to challenge his expulsion from parliament

    Zambians want the ruling party to allow democracy to thrive, fight corruption and strike a significant reduction on poverty levels. Zambians are starving ,the economic policies of pf have failed the Zambian citizenry. Continuing with the status quo will be disastrous for pf in 2021. Uukwebele imfwa ya noko, mutanshi.

    Comment Voting is an opportunity to communicate to those in power. Vote for PF if happy with what is going on. If not happy, then tell them through the ballot that they should change course. Also consider the best person to vote for. Personality also matters. If u vote for a wrong person regardless of the party,then forget about development.

    Kikiki… Kambwili jokes continues and now he wants his son 2 stand. This wil leave alliance divide bcoz the so called big opposition party own’t accept NDC 2 b only candidate. ECZ Is time 2 come up with timetable 2 avoid violence bcoz political leaders hav fail 2 control cadres and pipo 4 policies not fights. Ward timetable better than free campaign bcoz sesheke violent was caused by lack of respect 2 elect laws which clear no party leader can campaign same district with republic president and during SATA M.H.S.R.I.P In opposition he never undermine the presidental office BUT now is a sad situation. The power pipo are reachin at level put our national security at risk bcoz of human right without thinkin 4 women and children if we can go 2 political war.

    now that the by election date has been set please leaders of PF and UPND, this is the aptitude time to sensitise your cadres. The problem is with the leadership of these two. we don’t want situations like in the just ended sesheke by election. personally, I blame leaders of the parties because it is very easy for them to issue institutions by restraining the cadres from unruly behaviour. The problem is that we Zambian politicians who cherish violence. Naimwe mwe fipuba batuma, why don’t you refuse? please I beg you to tame your cadres. tatulefwaya ifyacitike ku sesheke awe!! surely those cadres get orders from PF and UPND hierarchies. am mentioning these two because they are the problem. please educate amafontini mwasunga in your political parties. what you shouldn’t forget is that some of them are like goats. they just have to be led where to go. Ala ine it really hates to see a fellow Zambian on another’s throat. Ba Lungu naba HH please be in the forefront to control the situation. Let’s even pray that these by election be very different from the last one.

      Comment It is not an individual who brings poverty. Check. Kaunda was removed because of Poverty, Chiluba was condemned because of Poverty also others. It is the system . Even any other person. It will be the same. We need to look at reasons. eg. How on Earth can somebody say that a person when he/ she fails grade 9 must go back to grade 6 or write the expensive GCE? How on Earth can the system allow people to be paying K250.00 to get a form for interviews which was only photo copied at a cost of K2.00 and 1000 people are given forms only to pick 50.And the system is quite?

    We can talk & talk but it all ends up as opinions. The truth of the matter is that PF still enjoys the massive support on the copperbelt except for districts like lufwanyama, masaiti & mpongwe (lamba dominated districts) hence Roan ni walk over for PF just like Bahart. Take it or leave it!

    I hope Mr Chibuye will deliver I strong is not the right material. In Roan the man is not known and is not down to earth where humility is concerned lastly, the man and his colleagues have failed to fix the road passing through the central business centre.

  36. My opinion

    My opinion, It was A big mistake for PF to adopt DC/chibuye:the following are the reasons,( 1)DC never contested both at district and constituency level.( 2)DC is not well known by a common people of Roan (3)DC went straight at the provincial where only PF authorities adopted him and not the roan people. (4)DC never yielded himself to work with Roan councillors, hence unpopular.
    ,What PF intelligence would have done (1) To Help the PF higher authorities telling them the popular councillors who had availed himself to the Roan people and not the civil servant/DC whom the people don’t interact with.
    (2)The three councillors who emerged victorious at Constituency One of them was supposed to be adopted,supported at Pvncial.
    In this case those councillors whom have not considered have felt some betrayal. Wondering how Nathan Chanda recommendations to the DC WHO never participated both at district&constituency has now being adopted how come Is this people’s will or Directives will? Only God knows, Coz of this i see PF losing very well in Luanshya. The authories were misled by Nathan Chanda &his friends becaues Roan pipo are more attached to their Kanselaas/Councillors than to the DC…..My opinion.

    How come The DC adopted yet the man never contested both at district and constituency level,those who did out of 11 only 3 made, it was these three/3Well known and popular gentlemen we expected One of them to be adopted finally at the provincial, and not the other way ……something was very fishy here, if I were in charge, and if PF Loses,All those adopted supported unpopular DC must be fired by the president for ignoring pipos will and for misleading the Party…… My opinion.
