Former Patriotic Front Secretary General, Edward Mumbi, says UPND leader Hakiande Hichilema should have engaged into consultation before going into a pact with Patriotic Front.
And Mr. Mumbi says PF leader, Michael Sata, cannot make a good president because he has never been ‘even’ a Village Headman before.
In a telephone interview with QFM, Mr. Mumbi says it is unfortunate that the PF/UPND pact is going through some misunderstandings, but adds that the misunderstandings in the pact were anticipated.
He says Mr. Hichilema made a big mistake to accept forming a pact with Mr. Sata because Mr. Sata is an arrogant man who does not respect others’ views.
He adds that despite people’s calls that the pact should chose a young leader for the presidency, Mr. Sata will not accept.
Meanwhile, Mr. Mumbi questioned Mr. Sata’s leadership experience.
He says Mr. Sata has never been a leader anywhere; adding that he has never been ‘even’ a village headman.
Mr. Mumbi also says Mr. Sata has never been a honest man in the country.
He has since expressed disappointment that the UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has been reduced to the level of PF Secretary General, Winter Kabimba.
