UPND Kabwata aspiring candidate Mulenga Sata yesterday rubbished reports suggesting that he was a missing candidate in Kabwata, as he has allegedly not been seen conducting meetings in the constituency.
Mr Sata has accused the Patriotic Front (PF) of being behind the spread of the false rumors that he had gone into oblivion and was not campaigning.
In an interview with the Daily Nation yesterday, Mr Sata said he was the candidate with more posters in Kabwata constituency than any other aspirant.
“If you compare the posters that I have with others in Kabwata constituency you will see that I am around campaigning unless if those who are saying I am not campaigning need different types of campaigns, which I don’t know of,” he said.
Mr Sata said it was impossible for him to be in each and every part of Kabwata constituency for people to see that he was campaigning.
“I want to win the Kabwata constituency seat; that is why I am campaigning on the ground but please remember that I cannot be everywhere at the same time,” he said.
Mr Sata said he had a strong and hardworking campaign committee who were on the ground campaigning for him.
“We have been having door-to-door campaigns, meetings with women and youth groups in the constituency, and tomorrow I will be meeting a group of pastors,” he said.
Mr Sata said time for rallies would soon come and the people of Kabwata would be able to see him.
“I have been meeting different groups of women, men and the youth. Tomorrow I will be meeting a group of pastors, so I don’t understand why people are saying that I am missing in my constituency,” he said.
Mr Sata wondered what kind of campaigns people were expecting him to be engaged in.
