  1. Very wise idea FDD and MMD. It is best to avoid waste of money in elections you know very well that you won’t win. Let UPND and PF the hungry wolves for power battle it out since they create these stupid by – elections. I hope MMD will not waste it’s money campaigning for PF. If MMD did that it is just as well you participate.

  2. It is the battle of Panga Family and UPND, the rest are realising that they are no longer a factor in Zambian politics. We urge those areas involved in By-elections to be peaceful going by the words of HH and ECL. PF thugs should tame their appetite to shed blood and this country will be a better place to live for all competitors who wish to rule Zambians at various levels.
