Lusaka is now pro-UPND, says rev Sambo

 

MMD National Secretary Reuben Sambo has said the real reason for banning  political campaigns in Lusaka is not about political violence but is allegedly due to fears arising from findings of a foreign based research company  that  the entire  Lusaka  and surrounding areas  are pro-UPND.  It is alleged  that this has caused great panic  in PF ranks forcing the suspension of UPND rallies and to use the  10 days to quickly  re-brand the PF and Mr. Lungu in a desperate effort to win back support. It is alleged that huge mobilization teams and resources have been unleashed, with the help of some taxi drivers,  to paint Lusaka Central  ‘green’  with PF regalia to buy voters in order to avoid embarrassment in August.

He said this scheme is likely to be thwarted by the new ‘water-melon’ concept which is urging  UPND and MMD supporters and sympathisers to accept the green regalia,  but only ‘eat the red and throw away the green.’

He said there are also serious allegations that the PF have  planned to use the 10 days window to mount huge billboards of President Lungu to try and improve his poor image by showing his face everywhere.

He further said these frantic last minute efforts have come late  because  Zambians have already decided to remove the PF government due to their lies and poor ‘chipantepante’ policies which have caused massive job losses, escalation of  basic commodity prices  out of the reach of  most  Zambians.

He said President Lungu is likely to have  fueled  the spate of police violence  in the country which has resulted in the murder  of a UPND cadre, seriously  wounding others because he personally told a public rally recently that he had summoned all senior police officers to State House  and instructed them to deal with the opposition in his words, ‘MUBOMBELEPO PANTU NABA TUMPA SANA’  (deal with  them because they have become very stupid) as can be heard from the attached  video clip, which has gone viral on social media.   He said another video clip which has gone viral is that of an alleged PF cadre being interrogated at Lusaka Central Police station, (also attached) wearing a police uniform, believed to be part of a large contingent of PF cadres who were recruited 18 months ago and  have now been released into communities  to cause terror.

Reverend Sambo has said the banning of political campaigns in Lusaka has actually worked in the opposition’s favour as this has  created an opportunity for them to flood the  entire Copperbelt, with mammoth rallies to ensure PF is kicked out of power.

The Zambia United  Alliance partners  have in the last three days criss-crossed the Copperbelt holding huge mammoth rallies addressed by UPND President Hakainde  Hichilema, UPND Running-mate GBM and alliance partner MMD President Dr. Nevers  Mumba, with the  message to the  Copperbelt electorate that the PF  vision for them is ‘NO JOBS’ as evidenced by the massive  job losses  in the mining sector since they came to power.  He said Mr. Lungu has  failed to implement late President Sata’s ‘MORE JOBS’ vision  promised in 2011 and wondered which vision he was following  since thousands of miners have now been turned into beggars under his watch  and they have not brought a single mining investor  to Zambia since taking power.  The PF  have instead specialised in destroying what they found.
