Mwaliteta upbeat of PF victory in Lukulu West

WESTERN Province minister Obvious Mwaliteta says people in Lukulu West are asking for the government to get closer to them.

Mwaliteta also said the atmosphere in the new Mitete district was peaceful.

“The atmosphere on the ground is very peaceful, and it is a one way traffic; all the people are behind the government. This time around it will be difficult for the UPND to bring thugs from Chawama in Lusaka because of the terrain. The terrain is not conducive for them to bring thugs from Lusaka. We hope it continues like that and also we are trying to put them in prayers so that they don’t become violent,” Mwaliteta said.

On allegations that the PF was buying voters cards, Mwaliteta said the UPND was now used to complaining without facts.

He said the PF was merely mobilising its members who had voters cards and maintaining its registers.

“They are now used to ‘crying baby’ system. We have a strategy where we need to know who is our member.
