UPND is attractive to MMD – Canisius

IT’S MMD members that are daily knocking on our doors, says UPND vice-president for administration Dr Canisius Banda.

Commenting on MMD vice-president for politics Michael Kaingu’s statement that it was political incest for the UPND to continue poaching MMD members of parliament whose seats had been nullified, Dr Banda said yesterday that his party was not poaching anyone as citizens were freely going to it.

“And when they come knocking on our doors, we welcome them and if they are willing to join us, we do not use force, we use our characters to attract them. So if they are willing to join us, we embrace them and begin to work with them,” Dr Banda said.

He said there were no clandestine activities that the UPND was doing to get popular.

Dr Banda said instead of pointing a finger at anyone, the parties losing members should find out what was wrong within their ranks.
