Referendum education intensified in Kaoma
By Nation Reporter
Referendum sensitisation is gaining momentum as the people of Kaoma are fully aware of the reason why they should vote ‘YES’ to support the Bill of Rights, says Patriotic Front Mangango aspiring candidate Taundi Chiseke.
He said all loving Zambians had joined hands and embarked on the sensitisation programme of voting ‘YES’ in the referendum that would take place alongside the August 11 elections.
Mr Chiseke said most of the people were responding well to the sensitisation messages as they now understood the importance of voting ‘YES’ in support of the Bill of Rights.
He said some leaders had taken it upon themselves to sensitise people to make them understand what was good for them.
Mr Chiseke cautioned some political parties who were trying to confuse people on the contents, saying it was important that those who do not understand the contents of the Bill must read.
“Politicians should learn to read so that they talk from an informed point of view instead of just criticising,” he said.
Mr Chiseke said there was no doubt that he would scoop Mangango Parliamentary seat because he was capable of meeting the demands of the people.
He said he contested the parliamentary seat because of the unfinished developmental projects he had started.
