Opposition political parties should give solutions not criticism – NAREP

Share

The National Restoration Party – NAREP Secretary General says opposition political parties should come up with alternatives when criticising the government.

UPND Alliance partner NAREP Secretary General Martin Mulenga explained that the opposition political parties are government in waiting who need to offer solutions on things that they feel are not working out especially on the problems that the Zambian people might be facing.

Speaking in an interview on Millennium TV, Mr Mulenga stated that most of the time, the opposition always try to destruct the government as they also come out in a manner that demean individuals.

“The biggest opposition political party today, the Patriotic Front was in government less than two years ago, but they have failed to internalize their loss as they are still grappling with issues of are we outside government, and if wl0aae are outside government what are the challenges that are outside government, they are now in a state of confusion,” he said

Mr Mulenga noted that the PF members should internalize the loss by accepting that they lost the election, adding that they should allow the UPND to govern.

“The PF cannot talk about carderism and corruption as they are not the right people to talk about that because corruption under the PF was a way of life,” he noted

He said that the PF can only rebrand by removing the entire national and provincial executive committes and allow other people to take over, as this move will also enable the Zambian people to say that they have a different opposition political party, as this is not how the PF was.

“I would advice the PF to take leave even for about 7 months to take introspection about the things they did,” Mr Mulenga said

Mr Mulenga cited that the Zambian people are looking out for things that will help them have proper checks and balances, not in the manner that the PF are doing things.

  1. Did UPND do this during their time in opposition? The best opposition party in Zambia was actually PF during MMD because the country progressed on issue based politics. This new way was created by UPND so you reap what you sow.

  5. In this country we don’t seem to have opposition parties in the true sense of the word. PF as way too conflicted and up until they rebrand, for now it is just noise they make. They managed to damage things beyond repair but shout the loudest. What was kwacha dollar when they took over and left? And inflation? And debt? Didn’t they fault on the repayment? And teacher student ratio? Meal allowance? Did they buy riot gear to crack down on opposition should they win?
    The other opposition parties, communist party, MMD or Mr Tembo’s party, can they publish their manifestos??

  6. I dont think it is right for you to form a political party so that your opponents can give you solutions for nation you want to govern , if you are not capable to lead a nation just standdown and allow those intelligent enough to occupy statehouse.
    Meaning that even if you are given advise you will not appreciate it , everyone in that position is already arrogant and pompus and live in denial that is what power can do .
    These arrests you are seeing they are there to protect somes ego , those decenting voices are voices of widom but praise singers insult anyone with ideas and as such there is no need to be arrested or insulted for giving advice to the respected man in the high office.
    There are Zambians out there who can do a better job than you who are clueless to the economies…
