PF woos Shesheke vot­ers

Daily Nation Newspaper - - Home News - By SI­MON MUNTEMBA

THE com­ing Sesheke par­lia­men­tary by-elec­tion is an op­por­tu­nity for the elec­torates to vote for the rul­ing party be­cause it has ca­pac­ity to de­velop the area, PF Shesheke cam­paign man­ager Kebby Mbewe has said.

Mr Mbewe said the op­po­si­tion had no ca­pac­ity to de­velop the area and that it was only proper that the peo­ple voted for the PF which would de­liver the much-needed re­sults.

Mr Mbewe who is chair­per­son for Sports and Mem­ber of the Cen­tral Com­mit­tee told the Daily Na­tion in an in­ter­view that the peo­ple of Sesheke should not make an­other mis­take of vot­ing for the op­po­si­tion if they were to re­alise de­vel­op­ment.

Mr Mbewe said de­vel­op­ment had eluded some ar­eas in the coun­try be­cause of vot­ing for op­po­si­tion rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

He urged Sesheke res­i­dents to vote for PF’s Dean Musule in the f par­lia­men­tary by-elec­tion slated for Fe­bru­ary 12.

He hoped that the peo­ple of Sesheke had learnt a les­son and that it would not make an­other mis­take of vot­ing for the op­po­si­tion which had failed to take de­vel­op­ment to the area since time im­memo­rial.

“The peo­ple of Sesheke should not make an­other mis­take they made in 2016 when they voted for the op­po­si­tion which has no ca­pac­ity to de­velop the area. We are urg­ing them not to re­peat the mis­take they made in 2016, they should just vote for a PF can­di­date Dean Musule,” Mr Mbewe said. He said the op­po­si­tion lead­ers who have been elected in the past had not lived up to their prom­ises.

And Mr Mbewe ex­pressed op­ti­mism that the rul­ing party will scoop the seat be­cause it had fielded the best can­di­date.

He said West­ern Prov­ince had be­come the rul­ing party’s bed­room and that the once voted for it would de­liver to peo­ple’s ex­pec­ta­tions. Mr Mbewe an­nounced that just like Man­gango, the PF will go into Sesheke with is­sue-based pol­i­tics which would win the party the seat.

He how­ever ap­pealed to all po­lit­i­cal play­ers not to en­gage in any vi­o­lence but con­duct peace­ful and is­sue-based cam­paigns.

PF sec­re­tary-gen­eral Davis Mwila ap­pointed Mr Mbewe as cam­paign man­ager for Sesheke and will be helped by Cap­tain Walusiku Li­ambela Walusiku.

The Sesheke Con­stituency seat fell va­cant fol­low­ing the death of its UPND law­maker, Frank Ku­fak­wandi.
