Mulusa Confident of Parley Comeback
Mulusa says the by-election should never have taken place in the first place if it were not for the bias of the Acting Chief Justice Lombe Chibesakunda.
Nominations for the Solwezi by-election and four others will be held today. Mulusa is among the MPs the ruling PF frustrated out of parliament through court nullification and attempted to block him from recontesting.
He has been politically targetted for taking on the cartel of Post Newspaper owner Fred M’membe, Director of Public Prosecution Mutembo Nchito and justice minister Wynter Kabimba.
Other by elections will be in Kasenengwa, Vubwi, Mkushi South and Zambezi West.
BELOW IS LUCKY MULUSA’S STATEMENT AHEAD OF NOMINATION
To all intents and purposes, I am scheduled to file successfully if tomorrow (today) comes.
Though glad, this is very painful for me as I should have gone back to Parliament without a by election on account of bias on the part of the Acting Chief Justice who received submissions from her own lawyer who was also representing the petitioner.
The ground looks good. In my opinion there are three groups of voters. First there are those who have sympathized with my cause and the trials and tribulations that have come forth to bear.
The second group are the disgruntled from the UPND and the PF who are not happy with the candidate choices in their respective parties. These two groups seem favorable towards us.
The third group are those we all have to fight for. They are waiting to be convinced. In short I seem to have a head start. My only problem is, how does fate make the status quo stay the same till September 11th?
