PF cadre who for a longtime masqueraded as an independent governance activist under Anti-Voter Apathy Bonny Tembo has urged the Kavulamanja electorates not to waste their vote on the opposition who have no capacity to deliver but to vote for PF candidate Mr. Patrick Ngoma if development is to be accelerated.
Tembo, who is PF Election Committee Member, continued campaigns in the area yesterday despite all the political parties including PF announcing halting campaigns till today Friday in respect of the victims of the Sunday road accident victims.
He said the opposition political leaders that were going round have got no key to the treasury to develop the area but the ruling party of the day has to open up and link Feira to the rest of the country.
Mr Tembo reminded the people of Kavulamanja area to ask themselves as to why other people in areas where elections have taken place so far were voting the ruling PF.
He said the PF was emerging victorious because the people in those areas were aligning themselves to the government of the day.
The Feira Parliamentary seat fell vacant after former MMD Member of Parliament, Patrick Ngoma, defected to join the ruling PF.
Other parties vying the same seat are NAREP, UPND, MMD and UNIP.
Mr. Tembo, who is former Anti-Voter Apathy project Executive Director, observed that some opposition political parties in the country existed just to add numbers to the register at the Registrar of Societies and they do not have an impact on politics of Zambia.
In the run-up to the 2011 elections, Tembo’s organisation was among those that supported PF in the name of independent civil society organisations together with the likes of Transparent International Zambia (TIZ) with the hope of individuals like TIZ’s Goodwell Lungu being offered jobs.
