UPND is weakening opposition – MMD

MMD national secretary Kapembwa Simbao yesterday described as nonsense UPND’s continued poaching of his party’s senior members.

And Simbao says the MMD-UPND alliance will not work as long as the two opposition parties do not respect each other.

Speaking to journalists yesterday, Simbao, who is also MMD Senga Hill member of parliament, accused the UPND of weakening the opposition by poaching senior MMD members.

“As regards other people that are going to UPND, it is sad indeed. It is a pity that UPND does not see that they are actually weakening the opposition. Because this is how the opposition gets weakened. Things might look better for them UPND now, but there is no guarantee that this is the way it will be all the way to the end,” he said. “We would like to preserve ourselves. It is like churches going after other church members, it is nonsensical. There are so many people who are non-believers, and I think that is where we should be going.
