Entire Katete MMD constituency officials defy RB’s directive to support Lungu

The entire MMD District and Constituency officials in Katete have refused to campaign for Patriotic Front candidate Edgar Lungu in the forthcoming Presidential elections.
The officials led by Mkaika Member of Parliament Peter Kafunka Phiri popularly known as 9-1 have insisted on campaigning for UPND President Hakainde Hichilema.
The officials told the Zambian Watchdog in an interview that though Edgar Lungu may be an Easterner, the PF has done more harm than good.
Speaking on behalf of the district and constituency officials after a consultative meeting in Katete today, Mr. Jeremiah Njobvu said there was no way the MMD in Katete was going to campaign for Lungu despite former President Rupiah Banda endorsing him.
“I’m Jeremiah Njobvu. The District Youth Chairman for MMD in Katete. We had a consultative meeting today and we have resolved to defy RB’s directive to support Edgar Lungu. PF has done a lot of damage to the farming community. RB does not feed us. We feed ourselves from what we produce from the fields and that is what PF has killed,” he said.
He further said all the officials have refused to attend a campaign rally in Katete today that is expected to be addressed by Rupiah Banda and Edgar Lungu.
Meanwhile, former President Rupiah Banda has given Edgar Lungu a branded Helicopter for his campaigns a source has disclosed.

The source said Mr. Banda has given Edgar Lungu another helicopter in addition to two other planes he gave him earlier on.

“This is MMD Part 2. Even Rupiah Banda’s Image builders have been attached to Edgar Lungu.The PF structure around Edgar Lungu has completely been taken over,” the source said.
