Expelled MMD MP for Mufumbwe David Musumba has urged the people of Zambezi district to rally behind the PF regime.
Masuba surprised people, traditional leaders and ceremonial vice-president Guy Scott on Saturday when he decided to politicise the Likumbi Lya Mize.
Masumba, Scott and other MPs from the MMD and UPND are in Zambezi district for the Likumbi lya Mize.
David Masumba turned up at the ceremony wrapped in PF campaign materials.
He was the only MP dressed in cadre attire.
The master of ceremony invited each MP to step forward and introduce them. Other respectable MPs just introduced themselves and greeted the people.
But when Masumba was invited, he decided to start campaigning for PF
He told the people gathered for the traditional ceremony to rally behind the PF government saying was focused and delivering on the campaign promises.
Masumba who is facing criminal charges of forging a NIPA diploma told the wondering crowd not to be fooled by what he termed disgruntled opposition leaders and their parties claiming they would not deliver development. He said working together with the PF government will guarantee development to North-western province.
Ceremonial vice-president Guy Scott later told the same gathering to forget their political, tribal or racial difference and contribute to the development of the province. He said PF will never leave the province behind in terms of development. He also urged the differences that are there between the two tribes, the Luvales and the Lundas to come to an end as they are all Zambians and therefore one people.

People of the Luvale tribe gather to celebrate their cultural heritage, bringing displays of all types of handicrafts and spicing the event with traditional singing and dancing. The dancers wear elaborate and colorful costumes popularly known at the ‘Likishi’
