United Party for National Development (UPND) campaign manager for the Livingstone by-election Garry Nkombo has insisted that they will use the Mapatizya formula to win the seat in the February 28 by-election because it is a non-violent strategy.
Nkombo said the ruling Patriotic Front was trying to create an impression that the UPND was perpetrating violence when in fact they are the one who were a violent party.
He said his party will ensure they handle the elections fairly while effectively implementing the Mapatizya formula.
The UPND uses the Mapatizya formula as a response to curb electoral mal-practice as part of its Parallel Voter Tabulation method.
Those who are caught engaging in malpractices are dealt with.
