MAN OF THE PEOPLE?
Mr Banda greets an unidentified child perched on her mother's laps at Lusaka City Market where he had gone to visit. With is Home Affairs minister Ronnie Shikapwasha.
The city market is Lusaka's largest and modern built market. Some people view it as a political ground where grassroot supporters from different political parties form their strongholds.
But markets such as this one can be very necesary to win votes for aspirants because it is where basic trading takes place and people would like leaders who can provide good and organised shelter for trading.
