UPND Mourns Dr Peter Matoka
Fellow Zambias, join me in expressing my sincere condolences to the Matoka Family on the tragic death of their father, husband, grandfather, the late Dr Peter Matoka who passed on late last week. I learnt of his death with a deep sense of shock and grief.
14th September 2014
Fellow countrymen and women, elections come and go, but life continues. Let me start by congratulating the winners in the past by-elections that were conducted in Vubwi, Kasenengwa, Zambezi West, Solwezi Central and Mkushi South, I say congratulations. I should however note that competing against a corrupt regime such as the PF, is never an easy job because they freely break the electoral rules with impunity. Rules such as on the use of government resources and civil servant such District Commissioners.

Fellow politicians in both the ruling party and the opposition. I would like us to work together to ensure that we bring credence to the electoral system in this country. We have upcoming by-elections on 11th September 2014, I would like to ask everyone involved to please conduct ourselves in a manner befitting a civilised group of people. Our electoral system is marred by inadequacies and clearly the Electoral Commission of Zambia, in its current configuration, cannot adequately handle the inadequacies without us the participants in elections being disciplined.
