” We will not listen to you ever again” former President Rupiah Banda has been told. Several Ward leaders from the Movement for Multi Party Democracy (MMD) told Rupiah Banda over the weekend that they will never listen to him again to support the Patriotic Front because the PF has brought untold misery to most Zambians. ”
We went to tell him off. He could not even see us but we shouted at him. He has personal interest. Look at the way we are suffering as Zambians. Him and his family are enjoying after telling us to support Edgar Lungu,” one ward chairperson said. Another Ward leader from Eastern Province said this time around the MMD structures in the East will abide by the direction of MMD Sinda Member of Parliament Levy Ngoma. ”
Levy told us that Rupiah had personal interests. We did not believe him but this time around we will. After all he currently commands more respect than RB, ” he said. Rupiah Banda during the January 2015 elections influenced a number of people especially Easterners to vote for Edgar Lungu but most of them have been disappointed. Eastern Province is basically an agricultural province but Fertiliser prices have increased from K210 last season to K 450 this season.
