The Patriotic Front and the United Party for National Development in Southern province have resolved to hold violence free campaigns in the run up to the August 12 general elections.
PF Choma central parliamentary candidate Kenneth Moola and his counterpart Cornelius Mweetwa during a roadside meeting with their cadres resolved to campaign in harmony and be each other’s keeper. Mr Moola, 31, said campaigns should not divide people as after August 12, relationships that electorates have will continue regardless of who wins.
“For your own information, some of us have relatives that are supporting UPND, even you guys from UPND you have relatives that are supporting PF and why should we be fighting,” Mr Moola said.
“Honourable Cornelius Mweetwa thank you for the discussions, for some of you who don’t know me I talk to him on a daily basis, I call him, he calls me, that is the spirit we need,” Moola said.
And Mr Mweetwa said everyone should be free to campaign regardless of whose stronghold it is.
“Here in Choma we want a violence free campaign because at the end of the day we know that once these campaigns are over we will still need each other as brothers and sisters in this country,” Mr Mweetwa said. Mr Mweetwa appealed to the cadres from both camps to desist from defacing posters or destroying campaign materials for candidates from either parties.
