4 candidates vie for Roan as PF, UPND go ‘head to head’ in BahatiBy Daniel Chansa on 15 Mar 2019
Four candidates have successfully filed in their nominations for the Roan Parliamentary by-elections slated for April 11, 2019.
NDC candidate Joseph Chishala was the first to file in his nomination.
Chishala arrived at the nomination centre at Roan Antelope Secondary School at 10:05 hours and filed in his nomination at 10:14 hours.
Chishala was accompanied by former Roan MP Chishimba Kambwili, UPND Deputy Secretary General Patrick Mucheleka and UPND Copperbelt Chairman Elisha Matambo.
In an interview, Mucheleka said it was time to stop the PF from taking advantage of the Zambian people.
“We have decided to be a united front and we have an alliance of the top class. To begin with we have decided that NDC has a candidate in Roan and UPND in Bahati. So we will support the NDC, but that does not mean we are not ready. We have seen what the PF has done to block the NDC candidates. Even if they play tricks, it will not work for PF. This seat will go to the opposition. We know the pf wants numbers in parliament so that they can manipulate the constitution. This is the beginning and you will see more of this,” said Mucheleka.
And speaking later, Kambwili said criminals should be more worried with every by-election because their time was running out.
Kambwili says the revolution had started and warned President Edgar Lungu to be prepared.
“There is no one under this world who can be clever than the people. This is the beginning of the revolution. Look at the way we have united with the opposition UPND. In Bahati its UPND and in Roan its NDC. When the criminal, ba pompwe come with money, get and remember what you are going through. Remember what we did to Mulubwa, he gave money but you rejected him. Have you ever seen a candidate a criminal. He is busy stending young boys to steal as DC and you vote for him as candidate?” wondered Kambwili.
People’s Alliance for Change candidate Mwansa Chama arrived at 11:30 hours to file in his nomination.
United Party for Prosperous and Peaceful Zambia (UPPZ) candidate Morgan Banda.
Banda had however, faced challenges to meet the needed 15 supporters to accompany him.
After filing in his nomination, Banda said he had already won the election because people in Roan needed sound leadership.
“This election, we have won. No need to waste time, the people of Roan need a sound leadership.
And PF candidate Joel Chibuye filed his nomination at 15:20 hours.
Chibuye was accompanied by Richard Musukwa, Bowman Lusambo and Kampamba Mulenga Chewe.
In Bahati, Mansa based businessman, Jerry Justine, successfully filed in the UPND ticket while PF has unleashed Charles Chalwe into the race.
People’s Alliance for Change president Andyford Banda named his Bahati candidate as Isaac Lukwesa.Related Items
