The PF/UPND pact pose no threat to MMD, Kunda
Vice President George Kunda says the the PF/UPND pact pose no threat to the ruling MMD as the pact comprised of two political parties whose self belief as independent entities was at the lowest ebb.
The Vice President said PF and UPND decided to merge because the two opposition political parties were weakening gradually.
He said PF/UPND pact was in disarray and bound to fail because members at the grass root were not consulted before the pact was formed.
Mr. Kunda revealed that there was a very vicious power struggle in the pact adding that both Mr. Michael Sata and Mr. Hikainde Hichilema were using each other to advance individual political ambitions.
He urged MMD members to go out there and tell the people how suspicious the PF/UPND pact was.
Mr. Kunda said the ruling MMD was the only answer to the future of the country and urged party members to recruit more members in order to win the 2011 elections.
He said MMD needed more time to complete development projects it was implementing beyond 2011 general elections.
The Vice President said the ruling party had only one formidable candidate in President Rupiah Banda who should be maintained.
