The PF is struggling to find a candidate for the forthcoming by-election in Katuba constituency. Katuba is in central province.
In desperation, the PF is pushing a nephew of the late MMD MP hoping that the name of the late MP will attract some votes.
The by-election follows the death of MMD MP Patrick Chikusu who was working for PF as a deputy minister of health.
Chikusu died a few hours after visiting State House where he went to complain about the fired nurses.
Vice-president Guy Scott today (Thursday) morning flew by chopper to Chief Mungule’s palace to introduce a Mr Rabson Chikusu as the ruling party’s candidate.
The contest in Katuba will be between PF and UPND.
The UPND has not yet picked a candidate but may recycle Jonas Shafuswa.
There is poverty in most parts of the country but Katuba has been reduced to a pile of rubbish under the PF.
