The Patriotic Front (PF) is providing its cadres from Copperbelt and Lusaka with voters cards to take part in the Mufumbwe parliamentary bye-election.
And some of the police officers who have been dispatched to Mufumbwe will also be given voters cards to vote for PF as part of the rigging formula.
And President Michael Sata is expected in Mufumbwe this weekend to receive fake defectors.
PF insiders have disclosed that the PF cadres being ferried from the Copperbelt and Lusaka are not just going to cause violence as feared by the opposition but to vote.
The cadres are also being dressed in UPND and MMD party regalia.
The printing of opposition party materials was started by Finance Deputy Minister Miles Sampa and his hit man Oppa Hamiyanze but the party has since taken over the project.
After failing to recruit any genuine Mufumbwe residents, the PF is creating fake voters by importing their supporters from other parts of the country.
Next weekend, President Michael Sata will be in Mufumbwe where the PF cadres from Copperbelt and Lusaka dressed as UPND and MMD supporters will be presented to him as hundreds of defectors.
Pretending to maintain law and order in Mufumbwe, carefully selected police officers have been sent to Mufumbwe from the Copperblet and Lusaka. But government sources say these police officers will also be given voters cards to vote for the ruling party.
North-western province has enough police officers to handle one bye-lection just like they have been handling general elections in the entire province, but this time the police handling Mufumbwe are from Copperbelt and Lusaka.
The PF has no MP in North-western province and has vowed to do whatever it takes to win the seat and show that it is a national party.
Last weekend, PF cadres from the Copperbelt almost died in a road accident in Mufumbwe.
