Opposition National Democratic Congress Spokesperson Erick Chanda has revealed that Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili will run for the republican presidency under the NDC ticket in the 2021 general elections.
Mr Chanda said only Mr Kambwili has the political muscle and stamina to beat the PF in the 2021 elections.
He said the combined force of Mr Kambwili and party Secretary General Mwenya Musenge will dismantle the PF in the next general elections.
Mr Chanda was speaking on Tuesday morning when he featured on the Let the People Talk radio programme on Radio Phoenix along with Mr. Musenge.
He clarified that Mr Kambwili is currently operating as a Consultant for the NDC because he does not want to cause a by election in Roan Constituency.
“As a caring leader, he is alive to the fact that the treasury is dry and causing a by election because he doesn’t agree with Edgar (President Edgar Lungu) will be very irresponsible of him. He is working as a Consultant so that we can continue to represent his people in Parliament and help our party defeat the PF,” Mr Chanda said.
He said he has faith in Mr Kambwili’ and Mr Musenges abilities to deliver because he has closely worked with them.
“I have seen what Comrade Kambwili and Comrade Musenge can do and this is why I have offered my services. These two don’t ever fail to complete what they have started. The Consultant is our candidate for 2021 and so it is Kambwili only for 2021,” Mr Chanda said.
