NDC national youth chairman Charles Kabwita says his party is extremely grateful that its political consultant Chishimba Kambwili graced their mobilization meeting in Kitwe today.
In an interview with News Diggers! Kabwita said Kambwili, who is expelled Roan PF member of parliament, encouraged National Democratic Congress members to embark on an aggressive mobilization exercise.
“The event was all about meeting the new structures in the district. And we invited honorable Kambwili to come and be the guest of honour or the guest speaker of that particular function we held today and indeed we are extremely grateful that our political consultant honorable Chishimba Kambwili accepted our invitation,” Kabwita said.
“His message was to tell the residents and the party officials to go wider and spread the message of a new party by the name of NDC and he encouraged us to work extra hard because when PF was founded, it was very difficult to do the structures but for NDC, it is the easiest work we have undertaken.”
He said his party was standing strong despite facing resistance from police.
“I can confirm to you that we are doing very fine, under difficult circumstances because when we wish to hold our meetings, we are given all sorts of excuses by the police even by Kitwe City Council when we ask to use the facility of Kitwe City Council but by and large, that has not stopped us from going out there and having meetings with our people and I am sure the message is loud and clear, the people have accepted us on the Copperbelt and I can also confirm to you that all the 11 districts on the Copperbelt are solid and they are standing [with us],” said Kabwita.
“And I can confirm to you, and I think through the pictures that you have seen, the NDC is stronger and more popular than PF. If elections were held tomorrow, there would be no PF on the Copperbelt, we have taken over the show on the Copperbelt, PF is no longer the stronghold on the Copperbelt.”
Kabwita said the meeting which was held at NDC secretary general Mwenya Musenge’s building called ‘Chilas Corner’, attracted over 1,300 people.
Musenge recently registered NDC and has not yet announced the party president.
