MMD candidates vow to wrestle Southern province from UPND

Several MMD aspiring candidates in the Southern province have vowed to defeat  opposition United Party for National Development .
Moomba Constituency MMD aspiring candidate Isabel Nanja says the MMD has an upper hand of winning in Moomba because of the confusions that have rocked the UPND.
Nanja told the Watchdog that campaigns in her constituency were going on well and that she will deliver the desired results.
“We have had so many independents from the UPND contesting, and I feel that the ruling MMD is destined for victory,” she said.
Mike Couvaras an independent candidate in Monze central constituency says UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema will not win this year’s elections because of the poor manner the adoption process was handled which has given birth to nine independent candidates in the whole district.
Namwala aspiring candidate on the MMD ticket Major Robby Chizyuka has told the Watchdog that it will be foolish for UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema to think that he will perform better this year.
He says the UPND in Namwala has lost grip to retain the seat. Chizyuka said the arrogance exhibited by UPND leadership in the selection of candidates will cost him a fortune.
“UPND will have to pay heavily for not following and promoting democracy in the selection of candidates,” he said.
Joshua Simuyandi of Pemba contesting on the MMD ticket tells the Watchdog that UPND is finished despite some senior party officials claiming that the party is intact in the province.
Chisangano Malungo contesting in Gweembe on the MMD ticket says the district was no longer a power house for the opposition UPND.
But  Monze central UPND candidate Jack Mwiimbu says the people on the 20th September will make their final choice of the leader they want to represent them in the National Assembly.
“It is not the UPND alone with this problems of people defecting, we have had people from the PF joining the UPND, we have MMD members leaving for UPND so those analysis being given are a sign of desperation,” he said.
