The Mutati Faction MMD says if the allegations about a new party being formed are anything to go by then the people behind its formation will only waste their political careers like the people who formed FDD.
MMD National Secretary Raphael Nakacinda a political party formed to fight individuals cannot stand the test of time because their motive is not to serve the people but to fight individuals.
According to a statement released by the MMD Media Team, Mr. Nakacinda questioned what will become of the said political if the people they intend to fight are no longer in politics.
“We know that if that is true, it won’t be any different from what happened in MMD when people formed a splinter party out of MMD just to fight the Third Term Bid, that was the birth of FDD but soon as the Third Term Bid died out, what has remained of FDD, it just a shell of itself because their agenda was not for the people but to fight the first President of our great party, Fredrick Chiluba.
“A party anchored on fighting people never lasts, and if they think they have money, they must know that money alone can’t be the only thing to use to advance an agenda for the Zambian people. Forming a party just to fight the MMD and PF Alliance, won’t succeed at all, President Lungu and the MMD are here to stay and those scheming evil will be frustrated because their selfish interests will be exposed. We are growing even stronger,” he said.
And on the UPND cadres’ harassment of journalists Mr Nakacinda said all well-meaning Zambians must condemn the UPND who in their desperation have gone as far as instructing cadres to beat journalists who just tell the nation what is happening.
He said the opposition party is now operating like a cult where members are just doing everything their leader Hakainde Hichilema instructs them to do.
He said even my elder brother Nevers Mumba has found himself advancing an agenda he does not understand.
“It is unfortunate that the UPND is operating like a cult these days. Because the things HH and his UPND are doing these days continues to surprise Zambians. UPND is embroiled in an array of inconsistencies and we feel sorry for our elder brother Nevers Mumba who has become a puppet for HH and GBM and by the time they will be done with him he won’t be able to recognize himself because he is operating like he is under a spell, like they have been hypnotized,” he said.
