Mutati’s party going nowhere – UNIP

ZAMBIA does not need a new party but a united opposition strong enough to face the ruling Patriotic Front, says the United Na-tional Independence Party (UNIP).

UNIP Southern Province chairman, Robert Mukengami, said it was a circus for former Finance Minister, Felix Mutati, to add another par-ty on the already congested number of opposition political parties in country.
Captain Mukengami said that Mr Mutati should have gained courage by joining the already existing political parties than forming his own.
In an interview with the Daily Nation in Livingstone, Capt Mukengami said multiplying parties did not help in any way.
“He should have been man enough to join any of the existing political parties. Multiplying parties does not help the people of Zambia in anyway.
“At the moment, what we need is not a new party but consolidate the opposition. It is a circus for him to form his own party,” Capt Mukengami said.
He predicted that Mr Mutati’s Movement for Democratic Party was not going to survive because the political terrain was tough.
