    it will be 97% win by pf, upnd can not win in these areas and upnd will be beaten by fdd if fdd take part in these by-elections because upnd is only strong in southern and western province.

    Don’t look at these elections in Bahati and Roan constituencies in tribal lines, or rather strong holds . anything can happen, mind you, people have their own feelings ,i.e civil servants might vote the opposite due delay of salaries…..thus ,there so many parameters that can surprise some people who always feel ill at the mention of a certain party. Look at politics in a real thing as a change agent not as divide and rule or rather tribe. You might think at your tribe to be the best, yet others look at your tribe as a cluster of thieves, slow thinkers and noise makers.

    In fact for me now, by elections are not even necessary, due insufficient of resources, the executive can give a mandate to the mayoral of those districts to over see the affairs of such constituencies or wards.

    Let’s see what happens, I wonder how many will be attacked beaten or even killed to keep PF in power, if this was a level playing field then I would bet on any other party to win over PF.
    Let the killings begin…sad

    Both Roan and Bahati are not in a bantu botatwe area,so lets UPND show us their popularity which they claim today.Recall,HH’s UPND has never won in those areas since 2006!!!If UPND is to dream about winning 2021 general elections,then it is high time they gave strong political statement by defeating mighty PF in Roan or Bahati on 11/04/2019.Should UPND fail to achieve that,then expect PF to carry the day in 2021 too because there will be little time for UPND between 2019 and 2021 to win the hearts of voters in PF strongholds!!!
    MAY THE BEST PARTY WIN THESE SEATS!!!
