Former president Rupiah Banda has been issued with an adoption certificate by the MMD.
The former president accepted the adoption by his party and said he would re-unite the nation.
“A PF ni amambala” for not adopting the constitution,’ said Banda at a press briefing Thursday morning when he accepted the adoption.
Banda said he has been forced out of retirement due to poor management of the economy by the Patriotic Front government.
He said Zambians should not make a mistake of electing people who have never been tested in government.
Banda was unveiled at the MMD party secretariat Thursday morning and was handed the MMD adoption certificate by MMD National Chairperson for Elections Kenneth Chipungu.
Meanwhile, Nevers Mumba who was granted an injunction to stop the MMD from interfering with his running the party announced that he would start the campaigns this week.
Rupiaah Banda’ son Andrew is against his father’s return to politics and has already endorsed UPND’s Hichilema.
