The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) has postponed it’s mega rally to launch campaigns for the 2016 general elections to a date to be communicated.

The PF early this week had announced that it would hold a mega rally on May 14, 2016 to launch its campaigns at Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.
The opposition UPND then on Thursday announced that they will have their launch rally in Kitwe on the Copperbelt province on the same date.
But Friday morning the PF through its Deputy Spokesperson Frank Bwalya said their mega rally which they had said would bring Zambia on a standstill had been postponed.
“Following the confirmation that Parliament will be dissolved on May 11, 2016 we wish to inform our members and the general public that the mega rally to launch our campaign for the 2016 General Election will not take place on May 14, 2016 at Heroes Stadium in Lusaka as earlier communicated,” read parts of Bwalya’s press statement to Zambian Eye.
It has been known by the public that Parliament would be dissolved by May 11, 2016 as President Lungu who is also the leader of the PF announced some months back.
Bwalya says PF Secretary General Davies Chama will in due course announce the date and other details of the planned mega rally to launch the ruling party’s campaign.
“Meanwhile, we urge all our members to continue implementing programmes and strategies to grow our party ahead of the forthcoming General Election,” Bwalya said. “We also urge members and all people of goodwill to pray for the success of this event.”

    • Yakosa bola bane! Two issues:

      1. some cabinet members are just waiting for dissolution of parliament to jump ship to UPND. This has brought a lot of difficulties on our side.

      2. We realise we made a mistake of conducting the launch in Lusaka. It should have been Copperbelt like UPND. We may move it to CB too. MeToo continues.

      3. The UPND HH akasolva launch theme is intimidating. we need to sit down and come up with a launch theme that will measure up to that. MeToo continues.

  3. Upnd also change the dates so that we see what will happen?
    Ensure you do it on the same date as the pfools.
    You can still go ahead, but be careful of the pfools who will be around to disturb you.
    Just plan another big event on the same dates with the pfools on the opposite venue.
    Take ’em by the horns.

  11. PF is easily stoppable. They have been stopped from holding a rally when they initially planned. They can also be stopped to bounce back at plot 1.

  12. That is why there are problems everywhere including at the mines (retrenchments) because of inconsistencies- forward, backward, kneejerk, etc. PF can just never learn and be on top of things. So manje Emmanuel Mwamba has cancelled the launch because Frank Bwalya and Fake Dr Chishimba Kambwili had nothing prepared for Edgar Lungu to tell the masses.
