PF Pleads for Votes in Roan

Patriotic Front National Youth chairman Stephen Kampyongo on Sunday joined on-going campaigns in Roan Constituency ahead of the April 12 parliamentary by-elections with a call on electorates “not to make a mistake of voting for the opposition candidate”.

Kampyongo, who was accompanied by MMD Muchinga member of parliament Howard Kunda, joined, among others, mines and mineral development minister Richard Musukwa and Lusaka Province minister Bowman Lusambo in Nkoloma Ward 26.

Kampyongo, who is also home affairs minister, urged electorates in Roan Constituency to vote for Joel Chibuye, the ruling party’s candidate, in the Roan by-election.

He advised voters not to associate themselves with politicians that were “over ambitious but have nothing to point at”, in apparent reference to former Roan member of parliament Chishimba Kambwili.

Kambwili’s party, the NDC, has fielded Joseph Chishala, for the by-election.

“When the late President Michael Sata made a decision to form a political party, he had achieved a lot when he served in government but today, we see people eyeing the presidency but have nothing to show for,” Kampyongo stated.

“Now you have a chance to make a substitute for a failed player. Can we now put in a number nine who we will work with to realize employment creation for the youth, because the one you had here (Kambwili) did not help in any way.”

Kampyongo has further warned Chibuye against staying away from voters should he win the parliamentary by-election.

And Kunda has told voters in Roan to work with the government of the day to foster national development.

He said some opposition political parties were failing to deliver to their electorates because they see nothing good in what government is doing.

    Its very rare that an MP can create employment .Its goverment policy.Some constituencies have not seen CDF for sometime and local councils nonfunctional.

    I would like to advise people of roan to pray to Jehovah through Jesus for guidance in their voting so as to vote for a MP Who will bring development,employment ,care for the poor people among other things. Not for the tribe, political party on popularous grounds whatsover.we are tired of dealers in power who trick us with fake promises during campanging and helplessly plead for power but after assuming office they delibaratly put their interest first and forget the reason they were put into power.i will pray for you ,to Jehovah to awaken you by the Holy Spirit and choose a suitably right leader for roan and the nation at large. I therefore, encourage everyone involving in this election to be peaceful ,free and fair to move our b loved nation and our future generation together in a right direction with one love for both the opposition and rolling parties. Remember violence is not the way out. All the best to every voter.

      @Gabriel, politicians are there to fulfil their personal needs. None of them should lie that they are their for us. Intuition should work here.

    • But why

      Sense, Mr Gabriel.Most Politicians of Zambia are there to meet their needs.

    • true caller

      read the article by Sishuwa Sishuwa pa Lusaka times, this the exact thinking which gets us Zambians into trouble….You have the ability to assess who is the right candidate don’t bring god into these matters, am if the elected Mps goes rougue you will say its God who gave us so its okay… no that’s the attitude of refusing to take responsibility for your own actions. Hold people accountable based on promises they made while you elected them in…..not bringing ba jehova into this election no no no no
