Chief Mpezeni says 2016 voting pattern was balanced

Paramount Chief Mpezeni of the Ngoni people in Chipata says the voting pattern in last year’s general election in his area was well balanced.

In an interview with Journalists at his palace, shortly after the commission of inquiry paid a courtesy call on him this morning, the Paramount Chief says tribalism, commonly known as wako ni wako does not exist in his chiefdom.

He says people are free to make decisions of their choice when choosing leaders.

The traditional leader says there is need for candidates who lost elections, to accept defeat and move ahead.

The Commission of Inquiry into the voting patterns and electoral violence are in Eastern Province receiving petitions from people.

Concerns have continued over government’s decision to increase the pump prices of fuel.

Chipata District Farmers Association CDFA says that the increase in the pump prices is likely to push up the prices of farming inputs.

Mr. Malambo further notes that the upward adjustment in fuel prices will lead to an increase in poverty levels among rural communities.
