PF Mkushi south parliamentary candidate has been distributing relief maize to voters in Luano district in exchange for his votes and Edgar Lungu’s. Chisopa, who is Central province minister has hired PF thugs who are using government transport to execute the distribution.
The areas he has so far been to are Chembe, Mboshya, Mboroma and Chimika. Some sourced in the team have said that two known thugs from Kabwe Clement Kalifungwa and Gerry Chama are getting voters cards before giving the maize to the voters.
The people perceived to be opposition supporters are being left out of this benefit but some of the beneficiaries have said that in spite of getting the maize, they “know who to vote for on 11th August”.
Chisopa has also paralysed operations at the central province administration unit by diverting money allocations to PF campaigns. Fuel meant for government vehicles is being diverted into PF vehicles.
