Ditch pact, UPND Katombora MP urges her party

KATOMBORA UPND member of parliament Regina Musokotwane has advised her party to consider forming government on its own rather than working with the PF. And Musokotwane said Zambians should not trust PF leader Michael Sata for president because he is unreasonable. Featuring on the live wire radio programme on Mazabuka Radio on Saturday, Musokotwane said UPND should consider forming government on its own rather than working with the PF because it was a sheer waste of time to work with messed up PF and the unreasonable Sata. She said chiefs in Southern Province should support their own child UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema just the way Eastern Province chiefs supported President Rupiah Banda. And Musokotwane said Zambians should not trust Sata for president because he is unreasonable. She said there were many reasons why Zambians must not trust Sata for presidency. “You see, Sata has done a lot of bad things in this country. Sata has always wanted to become a president. The confusion in the UPND/PF pact are created by Sata because he wants to field candidates everywhere even in areas were the PF is not popular,” Musokotwane said. “For example, the Chilanga seat, UPND is popular in that area and it is unreasonable for Sata to think that the PF should field a candidate in that area. So when some people say that Sata cannot be trusted, it is true that Sata must not be trusted.” Musokotwane said the problem the pact was faced with was because of PF thinking that they were a bigger party than the UPND. She said PF leaders were out of senses because they were antagonising the UPND and it was high time UPND realised and came out of the pact. Musokotwane claimed that PF and Sata did not want the pact because the PF was a messed up political party and UPND should realise the consequences of being in the pact now. “People should go on and campaign for the UPND because we don’t know what would come out of this pact because we are being antagonised too much by the PF. Zambians are demanding that the two leaders, Sata and Hichilema, talk about this confusion. It is true that this pact is in a mess and our friends in the PF are the ones creating this mess,” Musokotwane said. “This mess is not coming from UPND. The PF is a messed up party because they have messed up the pact and if I were president of the UPND, I would have left this pact long before Jesus was born. It is not worth it. Sata will not take presidency.”
