Lungu ‘strategising’ for 2016

President Edgar Lungu has appointed district commissioners in Eastern, Luapula, Northern and Muchinga provinces who are being groomed to contest the 2016 parliamentary elections in constituencies in their districts or nearest to them. The appointments are to enable the PF cadres earn money through salaries and allowances and campaign using the newly acquired vehicles.

He is likely to appoint some more DCs in constituencies where current PF MPs will be sidelined, most of these DCs in the remaining towns will have to be imposed by Rupiah Banda.

“There is a project to replace most PF MPs who are suspected of not having loyalty to the President while others are to pave way for Mr. RB’s men. So the exrcise has first started with Luapula, muchinga, northern and Eastern provinces and will soon get to other provinces,” said a source close to Lungu.
