Protests and ululation at PF Secretariat

There were mixed feelings at the Patriotic Front Secretariat today, Sunday morning, May 29, 2016, reports Zambian Eye roving Reporter.

Scores of party supporters gathered at the Lumumba Road office to hear, celebrate and petition the adoption process.

Our Reporter who was at the Secretariat says a Ms Tina who is said to be the administrative secretary denied speaking to the media. The supporters accompanied their Local government and Mayoral aspiring candidates from Lusaka.

Some candidates where seen storming out of the party Secretary’s office with adoption certificate in one hand and a clenched fist on the other. That gesture immediately sent their respective cadres in ululation as they sung praise songs for their candidates. However those whose candidates didn’t go through were spotted walking out whilst re-organizing themselves at Engen filling station just across the party offices.

“We are not happy with how this adoption process is going; we don’t want a councilor who will shun us again”, one ward official was heard speaking to his colleagues.

Efforts to get a comment from PF Secretary General, Davies Chama proved futile as he was reportedly in the meeting but his car was seen parked outside.

The UPND had similar protests against the dropping of Zambezi East favorite candidate who polled more in the primaries but failed to make it to the final adoption list. Mr. Brian Kambita‘s supporters however won their protest after the party rescinded its decision and finally gave him an adoption certificate

Both PF and UPND’s adoption process has been secretive, shying from media and the public

  6. Chirundu is ready to go to PF if you insist with imposing Siakalima and Sianduba . Siakalima was MP here for 10 years he never set foot in Chirundu. It is quiet demoralising to us UPND members to see many of our coleagues who worked so hard now joining hands with PF. PF has become so popular now in the district. Please Give us MR MUBIANA for council chair. Be forwarded we are ready to vote for PF in protest

  7. In like manner here in lutale ward mumbwa consty, adoptions hasn’t been fair,so this morning all the ward officials are storming the consty office in protest against the adopted candidate mr lupumpaula amon who got 6 votes against susiku oscar who got 27,what criteria was uzd 2 sideline who won the majority voter? My advice is that UPND should rescind all the petitioned adoptions b4 12hrs today or else we are creating voter apathy in these areas, UPND should base its adoptions m someone’s popularity not hw much one has to be able to corrupt the adopters, HH must be careful wth the adopters, it is marred by hatred & corruption which may result into a loss bcoz of the unwanted adopted candidates the party has imposed on voters.

  9. Now that the adoptions are coming out in PF and UPND, they will be casualties. And some of these casualties will make noise. I do not find these demostartion at party secretariats to be helpful. If people are not happy with a candidate the party chooses, they are at liberty to vote for another candidate. Throwing tantrums will not help as these parties will not change. Come August 2016 vote for whoever. Stop making noise please at UPND or PF secretariats. Candidates are also free to stand as independents. Only they should make their decisions early.
