The Mwata Kazembe says President Edgar Lungu’s decision to choose Professor Nkandu Luo as his running mate is commendable.
The Mwata Kazembe said Professor Nkandu Luo is an experienced and tested leader who will contribute greatly to the country’s developmental agenda.
He said the combination of President Edgar Lungu and Professor Nkandu Luo will provide efficient and competent leadership.
” I would like to thank President Edgar Lungu for appointing Professor Nkandu Luo as his running mate, his choice is excellent and I believe after the August 12 elections things will be okay for the country,” the Mwata Kazembe said.
” Professor Luo is experienced and tested leader and her education credentials will add value to the country and I urge her to work for the people and leave a good legacy,” he said.
And the Mwata Kazembe said he is confident that the PF will carry the day come August 12 because they have support country wide.
Meanwhile, the Mwata Kazembe condemned incidences of political violence in some parts of the country.
He said politics and elections should not be used to divide the country.
” I don’t want violence and people should take a leaf from Mwansabombwe which is on record of conducting violence free campaigns. Politics should not divide the country,” he said.
He was speaking when Professor Nkandu Luo and her campaign team paid a courtesy call on him at his palace.
And Professor Nkandu Luo told the Mwata Kazembe that the PF is equally concerned with political violence citing the recent Mpulungu incident in which the UPND attacked PF members.
She said it is sad that some political parties have taken violence even to rural areas which are generally peaceful.
Professor Luo said the ruling party is grateful for the support it continues to receive from traditional leaders across the country.
“We are in control and we are winning the August 12 elections,” Professor Luo said.
