Politics is a game played by those with patience, tolerance and big hearts. Before we go any further, allow us to remind you that last year we had two local government by-elections, one was in Mufulira and one in Kalulushi, [we] United Party for National Development (UPND) came out second with very small margin against ruling Patriotic Front (PF).
Our colleagues the NDC came out third with some results that we feel its not even necessary to publish them. Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) still have the facts.
If we retain Katuba which is likely, we will not praise ourselves alone like the Pharisees but will salute the NDC too.
There is noway the biggest opposition political party in Zambia UPND was going to fold arms like a monument without participating in Lubwa ward unless if we wanted to surrender Copperbelt to other political parties.
The big question is why are they [NDC] insisting on a ward on the Copperbelt when there other wards around the country? Let them pick a ward in Shiwang’andu or Chipata and we will support them.
The best NDC could have done is to support UPND is Lubwa ward instead of running into medias to raise their voices.
As the Fixing Team, we would also like to remind ourselves and the entire UPND leadership that, this is the second local government by-election we are having in kitwe after general elections, the first one was in 2016 just after general elections, we fought so hard and we won that by-election. We have a councillor in kitwe who came through a by-election. What more at this juncture when Lungu and his minions have proved beyond reasonable doubts that they have failed to govern.
We call a spade a spade and nothing has been lost.
