PF will find it difficult to campaign in 2016 – AVAP

The Anti Voter Apathy Project (AVAP) has warned the ruling Patriotic Front (PF)  that it will find it difficulty to go to  the people to campaign in the run up to the 2016 general elections.

AVAP Executive Director Richwell Mulwani said the PF has stopped listening to the cry of the Zambian people who voted for it in 2011.

Mulwani explained that the people need a listening government that will be able to hear to their cry. He adds that the government has also banned Civil Society Organisations (CSO) from engaging the people on various national issues.
Mulwani said the stopping of the CSOs is worrying for a democratic country like Zambia.

He said contrary to expectations the PF has given more powers to cadres who can pounce on anyone at will.

The AVAP Executive Director said this will make life hard for PF stating that it is likely to  lose election in 2016 unless it takes steps in addressing there issues.

Mulwani was speaking in an interview with QFM news monitored in Lusaka on Monday.
