UPND vows not to be intimidated by PF
The United Party for National Development (UPND) have said they will not be intimidated by the ruling Patriotic Front’s efforts to suppress the opposition in the country.
Party General Secretary Winstone Chibwe says the UPND will be stronger than ever in providing checks and balances to the PF government.
Mr. Chibwe explains to Qfm in an interview that the opposition is still strong despite attempts by government to weaken it by enticing members of the opposition with Ministerial positions.
He says the beauty of democracy is that people have the ultimate decision to make on the performance of a particular party in power.
Mr. Chibwe has since challenged Zambians to assess the performance of the PF since assuming office with regards to their campaign promise of transforming Zambia within 90 days of being in office.
He has also charged that recent defections of opposition members to the ruling PF are stage managed by the PF leadership who he accuses of being bent on weakening the opposition.
