We are not under any obligation to explain the Mapatizya says UPND

Zambian eye UPNDThe opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) says it is not under any obligation to explain what the Mapatizya formula is all about.

UPND Secretary General Winston Chibwe says nobody discusses a strategy in the open.

On Monday, the Southern African Centre for the constructive Resolution of Disputes (SACCORD) called on the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) to petition the UPND to explain the Mapatizya formula.

But Mr. Chibwe says all what the public can be assured is that the formula has completely nothing to do with violence.

Speaking to QFM, Mr. Chibwe stressed that the formula is strictly a strategy to guide against vote manipulation in an election.

He states that if the PF government insists on the UPND to explain its formula, it should first take the lead of explaining to Zambians exactly what the ‘Don’t Kubeba’ is all about.
