Unadopted Patriotic Front (PF) Chipata Central aspiring Member of Parliament Zindaba Soko has indicated that he is going to contest the seat as an Independent Candidate.
The former Road Safety and Transport Agency (RTSA) boss however says he will rally behind the candidature of President Edgar Lungu ahead of the August 12 General Elections.
Mr Soko says he has decided to go independent because he has nothing but the interest of the people of Chipata Central Constituency at heart. He said in an interview that his desire was to ensure that the people in the Constituency get what they deserve.
“After wide consultations from all stakeholders and the good people of Chipata Central Constituency and beyond, plus the impute into making the party arrive at the stage where it is in the constituency and bring back the lost hope in all the structure, it has become inhabitable that I take the route of standing as an Independent Candidate to jealously guard the Presidential vote for our President Dr Edgar Chagwa Lungu and further to also guard the Ngoni capital (Chipata central) in the coming General elections,” Mr Soko said.
He however says he respects the decision of the Central Committee for their preferred candidate.
