INONGE WINA NOT LUNGU’S RUNNING MATE
By Darius Choonya
Zambia’s Vice President Inonge Wina will not be the running mate for President Edgar Lungu in the August 12, 2021 general elections.
Ms. Wina who recently turned 80 says this is because she does not have the same energy she had when she was a young wife to a freedom fighter, Arther Wina.
She says she has reached a stage in her political journey to take a different role that will see a new generation of leaders take charge of the national affairs.
The Vice President has since thanked President Lungu for giving her an opportunity to serve as the first female vice President of Zambia.
She said this during a press briefing held at her residence in Lusaka
