A group called Kum’mawa for Edgar Lungu 2016, KEL 2016, has urged people in Eastern Province to vote for President Edgar Lungu in the August 11 general elections.
KEL 2016 team leader, Colonel Panji Kaunda, says giving votes to the UPND leadership is the worst thing that Zambians and Easterners in particular can do.
In a statement, Colonel Kaunda says the UPND is a party which segregates against the poor, as evidenced by the sidelining of some long serving party leadership, in preference to new members who are rich.
And Colonel Kaunda has appealed to leaders of PF in the province to bring unity in the party and support people officially adopted.
He explained that supporting independent candidates is no guarantee for the party loyalty when they win, as they could turn against the party at any time.
Colonel Kaunda urged women in the province to vote for President Edgar Lungu as he means well for the nation and promotes women participation in national governance.
