After waiting for a job from PF for so long, Tembo has officially announced his support for the ruling Patriotic Front hoping this time he will be noticed.
Tembo is one of the NGO leaders who betrayed their trust and abandoned their roles to become partisan and camapign for the PF in last year’ elections.
Tembo and others have always denied this. But others like Simon Kabanba, former LAZ president Musa Mwenya, Frank Bwalya have already been rewarded. But Tembo despite resigning from AVAP in anticipation of an appointment has been sidelined.
The Mufumbwe bye-election has therefore given Tembo a platform to wave to PF leaders that he is still waiting.
Tembo says with his experience in governance and elections, he believes he will add great value to the PF.
He disclosed to QFM that he was one of the individuals who had a desire for regime change noting that he is now proud of the 2011 elections outcome.
On the forthcoming parliamentary by-elections in Mufumbwe, Mr. Tembo says together with the PF campaign team, he will ensure that the Patriotic Front scoops the seat.
The Electoral commission of Zambia (ECZ) set 8th November, 2012 as the date for the Mufumbwe parliamentary by-elections.
