Patriotic Front (PF) president Michael Sata has maintained that President Rupiah Banda is a foreigner and is not qualified to contest next month’s Presidential election.
Mr. Sata says President Banda is cheating Zambians that he qualifies to contest the next month’s presidential elections under the Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD).
The PF leader revealed that Mr Banda’s mother hailed Gwanda area in Zimbabwe and the mother is Ndebele by tribe hence disqualifying him from contesting this year’s elections.
He says the constitution should not be applied selectively and it should also apply to all individuals.
In the news monitored on QFM radio today Mr Sata says President Banda was born in Zimbabwe where he married a Makulu daughter and he was a chief mourner when his wife died.
“I know President Banda’s previous wife a Makulu daughter, he is an Ndebele there is no doubt about it,” Mr. Sata says.
