THE SABOI NDC ENDORSE TEAM LUNGU NA LU
…as MCC Hon Given Lubinda thanks NDC for endorsing the winning candidate
The National Democratic Congress has joined a list of political parties endorsing the candidature of His Excellency President Edgar Lungu ahead of the August 12 General Elections.
Speaking during an event held in Lusaka today, NDC acting President Saboi Imboela said the decision to endorse President Lungu has got blessings from the party structures countrywide.
“NDC is not like other opposition parties with no structures. Our Party structures in all the 10 provinces overwhelmingly agreed to support the candidature of President Edgar Chagwa Lungu,” Ms Imboela said.
She however said that the party will field candidates at Parliamentary and Local Government level.
Ms Imbolela has also charged that the selfishness of Mr Hakainde Hichilema and his UPND is what chased NDC away from the alliance.
“NDC is not a small party. We left because we refused to be swallowed by the alliance,” she said.
And Patriotic Front Member of the Central Committee Hon Given Lubinda said President Lungu’s track record of embracing others and spreading development is what is attracting other opposition leaders to endorse him.
Hon Lubinda said this is unlike the opposition UPND leader Mr Hichilema who has issues working with others.
“How can he (Hichilema) become the president of the nation if he doesn’t have a heart of Cooperating with others,” he said.
He has since thanked NDC for endorsing the candidature of His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu as the only winning candidate.
