I wish to express my disappointment the manner in which ZESCO Kaoma has been handling their clients. According to their database on clients pending to be connected, they have customers who paid as far back as last year very huge amounts who have not been connected with reason of shortage of materials which have not been supplied to them from the head office because some people gave themselves contracts to supply conductors which they failed. Despite all this, customers have suffered very much in the hands of one old AREA MANAGER whose placement in Kaoma was on the basis that he is yet to retire and need to support him before being separated through retirement. This manager has proved to be arrogant when customers seek his audience for an explanation as to why they havent been connected for this long, decisions made with us workers have not been favourable as he does not listen to us when we try to advise him, because of his age, he has always thought that all what he says is gospel truth. One of the old customers has reached an extent of taking the Manager to court for defarmation of character and not honouring the agreed contract as he has not been connected even after paying this is the oldest customer not connected up to now (more than 20 months on the database). Customers have literally suffered at his helm as it has proved that there is nowhere they can run to because of his attitude. The area has received materials and transformers meant for an area called Folkland within Kaoma where the oldest customers reside, but upto now these customers who paid last year are not being considered as he keeps on saying its not his priority but Nkeyema and Luampa as new districts. It is for this reason that am asking the Regional Manager, Managing Director and others incharge of ZESCO that they intervene on the Kaoma situation by changing this old man with a young vibrant Manager who may assist the district in developing. Western Provonce has been rated amongst the least developed not because of anything but such behaviors by people mandated to forster development in districts. The way things are moving people will continue accusing the ruling party of not doing enough when it is actually the type of individuals that have been placed in these critical positions like the one being described. The Honorable Minister of Energy needs to be visiting these places and check if people are being treated well by checking on the oldest customers on the database not connected. Please assist the people of Folkland who have been frequenting our office for help they have suffered enough, they also deserve to be connected to ZESCO power.

Patriotic Front Wusakile constituency losing candidate Ackson Simwizye has ditched the ruling party to join the newly formed National Democratic Congress Party (NDC). Simwizye, who is believed to have been Kambwili’s stooge and was imposed on the residents of Wusakile in the last held election, has been spotted with Kambwili at all NDC events ever since the party was launched. Kambwili was on the trot this weekend disguising himself as the NDC consultant and addressed meetings in Lusaka and Ndola. The little known Simwizye had a tough time representing PF in Kitwe and failed beat “Jerabo†Pavyuma Kalobo who contested as an independent. Simwezye’s behaviour has however shocked some officials within the Wuskile constituency. “The trouble some of us went through to campaign for him especially that he was not even popular but we sacrificed, today he is ever with Mr Kambwili a man that has run out of favour with the party is a shock,†a PF official in Wusakile said. “We are disappointed but truth be told he never added any numbers and I am sure that is the reason he has gone alone without any numbers, such people are liabilities. I hope that one day he remembers the sacrifices some of us made during campaigns. It’s just courtesy; he should come back and tell us that he has gone than behaving like that.” When contacted, Simwezye said he was very busy and had no time to respond to issues suggesting he had abandoned the ruling party.

Majority of the defectors are those that ditched the Patriotic Front for Rainbow and had now rejoined. Leading the defectors was former Rainbow Party chairperson for elections Victor Kalesha who said the group had decided to join the ruling party because of good policies that have been introduced. Kalesha said the defectors ditched Rainbow Party on mutual respect and has since seen it fit to join the Patriotic Front to contribute positively to the growth of the party. “We have come to join you because of the promising good leadership that has been exhibited by the President and the introduction of many good economic policies that will improve the lives of the people,†he said. Receiving the defectors during a party mobilisation in Kitwe held at Buchi hall, PF Secretary General Davies Mwila said the Patriotic Front remained open for new members adding that with many political parties coming up, numbers were important. Mwila said the party will continue to uphold its democratic tenants adding that President Edgar Lungu remains the preferred candidate on the PF ticket ahead of the 2021 elections and further said those willing to challenge him were free to do so. “We are the most democratic party and this we have demonstrated, to all you our new members you are most welcome and I want to assure that that you that you have made the right decision to join the ruling party,†Mwila said. Kalesha led others who included John Katati, Allan Mwewa, Mervis Mukupa, Beauty Mwewa and Naomi Kashiwa. The five all held senior positions in the Rainbow Party Central Committee.
