UPND’s Lukulu West candidate wanted PF ticket -Scott

VICE-PRESIDENT Dr Guy Scott has disclosed that Misheck Mutelo, the UPND’s candidate in the upcoming Lukulu Westby-election, wanted to stand on the PF ticket but he was late.

Addressing public meetings in the newly created Mitete district ahead of the April 23 Lukulu West by-election, Vice-President Scott said Mutelo even went to State House in his attempts to be adopted.

“Mutelo wanted to be a PF candidate in this election; he even went to State House but we could not accept him because he was late, so he went to UPND,” Vice-President Scott said.

The PF is fielding Aileen Imbwae in the by-election.

And speaking later at another public meeting at Lupuyi Basic School, Vice-President Scott said relief maize would be distributed to those in need and not how they would vote.

This was in response to hunger complaints from the residents

of the area, and the late delivery of farming inputs.
