A Nephew of Senior Chief Mushili of the Lamba speaking people of Masaiti District on the Copper belt has joined calls urging opposition United Party for National Development -UPND- President Hakainde Hichilema to join the MMD.
Mandela Nkole says Mr. Hichilema is wasting time in the pact and should instead reconsider his political career by supporting the Government of President Rupiah Banda.
He says forming a pact with the MMD will allow Mr. Hichilema to meaningfully contribute to the countryâ€™s economic growth.
Mr. Nkole, who is also Masaiti Council Chairman was speaking in a telephone interview with ZNBC News thursday.
But UPND Chairman for Science and Education Lackson Kazabu said it is premature to consider such options, because the pact is still intact.
