Chipata… Wednesday, June 2, 2021
The Movement for Multi-Party Democracy (MMD) in Eastern Province has rallied behind His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu ahead of the August 12 polls.
Former Minister of of Water Development, Sanitation and Environmental Protection Hon Raphael Nakacinda said when he delivered MMD members in Chipata to the ruling PF yesterday that there is no need for experiments when the leadership of President Lungu is delivering.
Hon Nakacinda however called on the Patriotic Front in the Province to respect and recognize MMD members who have made themselves available to support the President.
He however noted that the leadership of President Lungu is exceptional adding that this is the reason most political parties are rallying behind him.
“The leadership of His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu is exceptional. Different political parties are endorsing the leadership of President Lungu,” he said.
Meanwhile, Eastern Province PF Chairperson Alexander Miti commended the opposition party in the Province for the support.
He said all those from MMD wanting to campaign for the President must be embraced by the PF officials and the general membership in the Province.
And Mr Miti mentioned that leader of the opposition UPND Mr Hakainde Hichilema has no respect for humanity.
He also mentioned that he is aware that there are people who do not want President Lungu to contest but said “it is too late.”
“There are people who don’t want President Lungu to contest but it’s too late because the concourt already ruled on his eligibility. They are now attacking the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) for accepting his nomination but ECZ did the right thing,” he said.
Speaking at the same event, Eastern Province MMD Acting Chairperson Philimon Mwale cautioned party members in the Province against being swayed away by those against President Lungu.
Mr Mwale stressed the need for the two parties to work together to ensure that the Head of State wins this year.
He told Hon Nakacinda not to worry about Eastern Province.
“Don’t worry about Eastern Province, we will do the work. Just give us support. You will realize that this is President Lungu’s bedroom,” he said.
