PF and Richard Kapita 51.
Mwinilunga is the home constituency and village of former UPND vice-president Richard Kapita who resigned with two of his cousins to join PF after receiving bags of money from president Edgar Lungu. Lungu personally flew to Mwinilunga to welcome Kapita. When the Watchdog told PF that Kapita is ‘nothing’ and has no influence even in his own family, we were showered with insults.
It was for this ward by-election that vice-president Inonge Wina took helicopters packed with food and money to bribe voters. The voters received the donations with both hands but voted for the opposition.
