The ruling Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD) has dismissed Centre for Policy Dialogue executive director Neo Simutanyi’s warning that violence is certain if the opposition loses the forthcoming general elections.
MMD deputy National Secretary Chembe Nyangu says there is no need for anyone to assume that the opposition will win the elections claiming that the opposition lost the time the date of elections was announced.
Mr. Nyangu observes that the law enforcement agencies in the country will not allow lawlessness by a handful of disgruntled people.
In an interview with QFM, Mr.Nyangu has warned that as a party in government,the MMD will not condone any form of violence by any unruly citizens.
Mr. Nyangu has accused the opposition political parties in the country of trying by all means to cause confusion in the country as a way of crying over their defeat.
He has assured citizens to remain calm as there will be no violence before, during and after the polls slated for 20th September, 2011.
