All the elections I have voted in, I only vote for people from my region. I am not even ashamed to say it.
In Southern Province, President Lungu gets 6 votes in some areas, so why should we give HH, 1000 votes in our own areas?
Bemba’s, Easterners, and all the inter related tribes from the Copperbelt, Luapula, Muchinga and Northern should wake up and smell the blatant tribalism Southerners practice.
They want you to vote for them on Principal but reject your own on tribal reasons. How?
In 2008 when I first voted, I was torn in between Rupiah Banda and Micheal Sata because they all came from my region up in the North East.
I could not even waste my time looking at HH because his own people have turned me AGAINST him. Southerners vote for HH on tribe. Let us not even hide it. Its a shame and over the years in deciding who I vote for, I look at the last name to also return the favour.
As I go into Bahati, I only have one message, vote for your tribesmen whose political party is led by someone from the same region. Do not even waste your vote on UPND.
