This is not the time to entertain political tourists because Zambia is in a fast lane to develop, says the Gallant Youth in Zambia executive director Henry Mulenga.
He said there was need to discard political party trotters if Zambia had to realise meaningful and sustainable development.
“While it is one of the democratic rights to belong to a party of their choice, the recent defections remain questionable because you cannot trust anyone.
“As good governance activists also championing youth participation in national governance, we have resolved to go on a national campaign to educate voters not to make a mistake to vote for political opportunists,” Mr Mulenga said.
He said time and again, the GYZ had been advising the PF to viciously deal with the cartel so that they do not bring confusion.
“As is usually the case when we are going towards the elections, they slowly seem to be taking centre stage in causing confusion and division in the nation. But this time, they will not manage because their deeds are well known,” he said.
Mr Mulenga alleged that the infamous cartel was deep-rooted in both the PF and Government.
He advised the electorates to critically scrutinise all contenders and only vote for politicians who could deliver to their expectations for the advancement of national development.
“This is not surprising anymore because their agenda is well known and this must be a wake-up call to the electorates to give their vote where it is due for the betterment of Zambia,” Mr Mulenga said.
