Evil occurrences in Zambia continued this evening when 9 UPND supporters perished in yet another fatal road accident this time along the Great East road in Luangwa’s Kavalamanja area, Feira constituency.
UPND sources said the driver of the light Canter truck carrying UPND campaign team in the area missed the bridge and plunged into the river killing all the 9 people that were coming from campaigns around 20:00 hours.
Reports say bodies, including the UPND campaign coordinator a Mr. Kiziko, are being retrieved from the river in the Kavalamanja area which is one of the polling stations in the Feira by-election.
The UPND senior leadership, which is rushing to the area, is believed to have immediately halted all the campaign activities in the area in order to mourn the deceased.
The expensive and unnecessary June 2oth Feira constituency by-election was caused when former MMD MP Patrick Ngoma defected to the ruling PF because he wanted one of the many deputy ministerial positions that are being dished out at will.
The nation has experienced an unprecedented number of road fatalities of late in what MMD president Nevers Mumba referred to as an “attitude by the PF that confirms why the country is under so much demonic attack, why hundreds of our brothers and sisters have continued to die in a spate of road accidents in a way we have never experienced since Independence. The coming of army worms like it happened in Egypt when God judged Pharaoh and his people”.
Mumba called on all God fearing Zambians to call on God to cleanse our country of all evil that has covered the land and stand on 2 Chronicles 7:14 which states, ”If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, pray and seek my face, and turn from wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land” Our land needs healing.
