More parliamentary by-elections looming


By-elections are looming in Sinjembela and Kalabo Central where two opposition UPND  Members of Parliament (MPs) appointed into to serve in PF Government, are about to be taken out of the party.
According to the UPND insiders the party has now resolved to flash out the two MPs after wining the Lukulu West by-elections.
The party feels it can comfortably retain the two seats and send a warning message to other MPs planning to join the PF government in what is termed as political double standards.
The two MPs, Poniso Njeulu and Chinga Miyutu for Sinjembela and Kalabo Central respectively have been in their constituencies busy preparing the grounds for the impending by-elections.
The duo is also backed by Government media propaganda to try and show that their decision to join Government has been well received and will benefit their constituencies.
So far ZNBC, a government owned and controlled Television has run a documentary on Sinjembela twice on its prime slot.
Mr Njeulu has been going round assuring the people of Shangombo district that Government will complete all the developmental projects which were being carried out in the area.
While his Kalabo Central counterpart is going round telling the people that his move to join the PF Government is intended for him to develop the constituency.
He has been telling electorates who voted for him as an opposition MP that he can only develop the area if he is in Government.
President Michael Sata recently flew to Shan’gombo to launch a hospital and whilst there, he directed that the district be connected to national power grid.
 He has also told the nation that he will develop areas where there are PF MPs, the sentiments which has been received with mixed feelings.
And on the Copperbelt Kafulafuta MMD MP, James Chishiba is tomorrow expected to defect to the ruling PF after being bought and promised with a deputy ministerial position once he wins the seat.
Sources within the PF said Mr Chishiba who will create another unnecessary by-election is part of the wider scheme by the PF reach the required 106 majority in parliament required to manipulate the constitution.
Insiders say the PF have already beefed-up numbers in the area through the on-going voters registration exercise in Show-grounds that only closes updating once a date for election has been announced for a constituency.
The ruling PF are so far not comfortable with certain clauses in the constitution such as the 50+1 percent requirement for a winning presidential candidate and the running mate, despite them being adopted unanimously by delegates at the just ended National Constitutional Conference.
Already the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has set June 20, 2013 as the date for by-elections in Lusaka’s Feira Constituency.
The Feira seat fell vacant after area MP Patrick Ngoma was lured to PF and was appointed deputy minister.
Since PF came to power about 11 parliamentary by-elections have been held being Chongwe, Mufumbwe, Petauke, Chama, Muchinga, Livingstone twice, Mpongwe, Kapiri, Lukulu and now Feira.
