Vice President George Kunda says the UPND’s popularity in the country, is diminishing.
Mr. Kunda says most UPND supporters are joining the MMD because they have seen that the opposition party has got no future in the politics of Zambia.
The Vice President also said that UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema will soon be suspended from his party because the party has lost confidence in him.
Mr. Kunda was speaking at Munyewu Basic School in Lusaka West during campaigns to drum up support for the MMD Chilanga Constituency candidate Keith Mukata
He said Mr. Mukata is a hard working Lawyer who has served his community diligently.

The candidates include, Valeri Bqwalya of NAREP, MMD’s Keith Mukata, UNIP’s Henry Silumesi and the UPND- PF pact Candidate Captain Cosmas Moono.
Chilanga residents go to the polls on October 25.
