UPND says Solwezi defctions to PF fake

Opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) has dismissed as fake the over one thousand four hundred cadres that were reported to have defected to the ruling Patriotic Front in Solwezi District of North Western Province.

UPND Deputy Secretary General Kuchunga Simusamba has such announcement of defections are only meant to hoodwink weak minds that the PF is earning ground in the District ahead of the July 25 Solwezi East by-election.

Mr. Simusamba notes that it is not possible to have such a massive defection members from the opposition as the 2011 general election indicated that Solwezi east has a voter turn out of slight over three thousand and that in last polls in the constituency, the winning candidate got slightly more than two thousand votes.

Mr. Simusamba has since predicated a loss for the PF in Solwezi East by-election.
