President Edgar Lungu has urged the police to prevent the ferrying of cadres ahead of the September 24, 2015 parliamentary by-elections in Lubansenshi and Solwezi West.
President Lungu says he has received information that the opposition UPND is ferrying cadres from Chawama to intimidate electorates in Lubansenshi and Solwezi West constituencies ahead of the by elections.
Speaking to journalists at City Airport before departure for Lubansenshi to drum up support for the PF Candidate George Mwamba, President Lungu says the police should ensure that those entering the two areas are well meaning Zambians.
President Lungu says there is need for Zambians to treat each other in a humane way as they are the same people affected by the same challenges.
But UPND Spokesperson Charles Kakoma says the party is not transporting any cadres from any part of the country to the two constituencies.
Mr. Kakoma told ZNBC News in a telephone interview that his party is promoting peace because it feels that is the best way of winning the elections.
