|Late Elias Chipimo Snr with NAREP President Elias Chipimo Jnr|
NAREP is saddened by the death of Mr. Elias Chipimo Senior. We mourn with the Chipimo family at this time of their loss and the loss to the nation of a champion of our freedoms.
We remind the nation that while the timing of the demise of Mr. Chipimo Senior coincides with our presidential by-election, it does not affect the obligation of each of our members, sympathisers and supporters to turn up and perform the national responsibility of voting for our preferred candidate.
Mr. Elias Chipimo Junior, remains on the ballot as a candidate in this by-election and needs your vote. Be assured that his commitment to providing leadership for Zambia has only been reinforced by the death of his father who made it clear that he did not want his son to give up but to continue to pursue the goal of restoring the values of our nation.
We urge every Zambian to turn up and vote and to be officially notified that Mr. Elias Chipimo Junior remains a firm contender in next Tuesday's election.
