Patriots for Economic Progress (PEP) President Sean Enock Tembo has charged that the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) lacks diplomacy.
Tembo noted that he has always considered the stance taken by the UPND not to recognize President Lungu and his Government as too radical and it had far reaching consequences.
He stated that as things stand now, the UPND is on a path of self-destruction and by 2021.
Tembo is of the view that if the UPND had swallowed whatever injustice with a grain of salt and took the rest in their stride after the 2016 elections by 2021 opposition UPND led by Hakainde Hichilema would have won by a landslide owingto the current mismanagement of the country by the Patriotic front (PF) under president Edgar Chagwa Lungu.
And the PEP President said UPND’s arrogance will cost the party dearly and insisted that by 2021, UPND will be weak from fighting these daily side battles that it is unlikely to put up a decent performance in the general elections.
“The UPND is on a path of self-destruction and by 2021, very little of it may be left” Tembo said
