UPND bans PF in Sinazongwe

The United Party for National Development (UPND) leadership in Sinazongwe district has declared Sinazongwe constituency a ‘no-go’ area for any political party ahead of the August 11 Presidential and general elections.

And Sinazongwe UPND aspiring candidate Neddy Shanza has charged that he feels the pressure and hardships which the people of Sinazongwe are going through under the PF regime.

Sinazongwe constituency chairman Paul Mudenda made the declaration of the constituency being a no-go area for any other political party during a meeting which was addressed by Neddy Shanza in Mweenda ward in Chief Mweemba’s area.

Mr. Mudenda, who is Mweenda councillor and also Sinazongwe council chairman, said it would be a waste of time for the PF through Defence Minister Richwell Siamunene to cheat itself that it is popular in the area.

He said it would be a fallacy for any PF member to claim that the party was gaining ground in Sinazongwe because the ruling party does not even have structures.

Mr. Mudenda said PF cannot break the UPND’s popularity in Sinazongwe, adding that residents in the area have been agitated by the PF’s leadership.

He said that was the reason why his party had declared Sinazongwe a no-go area for any other political party and that the area would remain a UPND territory.

And Sinazongwe UPND aspiring candidate Neddy Shanza has charged that he feels the pressure and hardships which the people of Sinazongwe are going through under the PF regime.

Shanza said that the poor road network in the constituency was hampering development in the area and had contributed to the pressure and hardships which the people were facing.

He said since the PF formed Government in 2011, there has been very little that Government had done to alleviate the suffering of the people in the area despite a lot of revenue which was collected from the area through the Maamba coal mine and the Kariba dam.

The UPND aspiring candidate noted that a good road network is cardinal to the transportation of produce from the small scale farmers in Sinazongwe district.

Shanza who had a series of meetings in the constituency charged that the people of Sinazongwe feel left out because of the way the PF leadership was governing the country.

He said that people in the area were not happy with the PF and were now ready to vote for opposition UPND in August this year.
