IT’s Final. There is jubilation in the town centre of Lundazi District as General Education Minister John Phiri has failed to file in nomination papers for the Lundazi Central Constituency for arriving late and drunk.
Despite protracted phone calls by State House chief advisor for corruption who also doubles as Special Advisor for Politics Kaizer Zulu, the returning officer has declared that he can not accept Dr. Phiri’s papers because he arrived after the stipulated time. Dr. Phiri has been in Lundazi for two days but he just sat and drunk with PF cadres at his home and went to the nomination centre late. The returning officer has since stuck the names of the successful aspirants on the notice board and has left the premises.
