“Meantime we urge our adopted candidates and supporters to go flat out and mobilise votes,” he said.

Apparently, President Edgar Lungu has announced that his party Patriotic Front will not be conducting rallies.

“I have launched campaigns for our party, the Patriotic Front. We would have loved to hold a mammoth rally for this event, but your lives matter more to us.

“We wouldn’t want to unnecessarily expose you to Covid-19, and so we decided to hold a launch that complies with health guidelines prescribed by the Electoral Commission of Zambia.

“Let’s work together to ensure victory for the mighty Patriotic Front. We will grab it house by house and through the airwaves,” he said.
