Munkombwe says he does not support baby politicians

DANIEL Munkombwe says he does not support baby politicians because some of them are irrelevant and useless.

Speaking at a public rally in Dambwa Site and Service, Munkombwe, a former deputy minister in the Vice-President’s Office, in an apparent reference to UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema, said he does not support “baby politicians” because some of them were irrelevant.

“I’m convinced that President Michael Sata is leading the country into the right direction. Nobody will dictate to me to remain in a stagnant party. MMD is stagnant. Politics is a moving science. If you lose elections in a particular year, you put your supporters in a warmer so that they don’t freeze to death. How long will you continue to be in a warmer?” he asked.

“I don’t support baby politicians because some of them are irrelevant, some are useless political babies. I’m saying some, because we have some very good baby politicians.
