As Shephard Smith says on Fox News "don't tell me it has nothing to do with politics". The timing was certainly odd - a house handover during an election campaign period. Never mind that it has been in the pipeline for a longtime, the timing did not seem right and should certainly have waited until after the election. In any case, KK certainly appeared to have been so impressed by early handover, and the bonus 4x4 that he quickly decided to endorse Mr Banda, just as the Vice President was handing over KK's new possession. History will record, that only a week or two earlier, KK was brokering a failed deal between Sata and HH.
