Kabwata PF MP Given Lubinda has hit back at attacks from the UPND and insisted that there is no opposition in Zambia.
In an interview, Mr Lubinda said the type of reaction from the UPND regarding his statement which appeared in the Post Newspapers that there is no opposition in Zambia confirms the pettiness associated with opposition politics.
“I did opposition politics for ten years and we were much more organised and focused than this Mickey Mouse politics the UPND is playing,” Mr Lubinda said.
He said he is ready to battle it out with the UPND in Kabwata constituency.
“I am so happy that they are coming into Kabwata, they are welcome even during the day or night, let them come and maybe they could grow the UPND beyond the Southern Province,” he said.
Mr. Lubinda maintained that there is no opposition worth talking about adding that President Sata should continue beyond 2016.
“The current opposition in Zambia is in a mess, it can’t unseat the PF and this is the argument I make in the newspaper but the UPND has chosen to attack me personally, I am not moved.”
The UPND through its Deputy National Secretary Kuchunga Simusamba responded to Mr Lubinda’s assertions that there is no opposition in Zambia with a challenge to Mr Lubinda to resign and cause a by election in Kabwata to prove that the PF has lost popularity in Lusaka and the rest of the country.
