Mastone/Lukundo

The opposition UPND says the nomination of Professor Nkandu Luo as President Edgar Lungu’s running mate in the August polls has made the party’s campaign easy.

Commenting on the picking of Professor Luo to be President Lungu’s running mate, the UPND through its Spokesperson, Cornelius Mweetwa have described this decision as a Christmas gift for them.

Speaking to the media in Choma shortly after he filed in his nomination as parliamentary candidate for Choma Central Constituency yesterday, Mr. Mweetwa explained that Professor Luo when she served as Minister in various portfolios made erroneous decisions which affected citizens.

Mr. Mweetwa says the UPND is going into the campaigns knowing too well that Zambians have already rejected the former munali law maker who is now president Lungu’s running mate.

But the Non-Governmental Gender Coordinating Council –NGOCC- has welcomed the nomination of Professor Luo as President Lungu’s running mate in the august 12th 2021 general elections.

NGOCC Board Chairperson Mary Mulenga said this development by the ruling party has elated the women movement and has urged other political parties to ensure the gender inequality gap is bridged at both parliamentary and local government level.
