MMD, UPND cadres trade insults in Monze

UPND's Mwimbu drives through town as MMD cadres show the chwe chwe symbol

UPND and MMD cadres insulted each other after Monze Central constituency aspiring candidate for the UPND Jack Mwiimbu led hundreds of his supporters in flashing party symbols on MMD.
The incident happened after Mwiimbu who is re-contesting on the UPND ticket finished his nominations at Tagore basic school this morning.
The cadres together with Mwiimbu drove along the Monze –Livingstone road just opposite ZESCO where the MMD cadres were waiting for their candidate Dr. Victor Mukonka to file in his nominations ahead of next month’s election and started flashing their party symbols.
The MMD cadres also retaliated by flashing back while singing songs of solidarity in support of their candidate Mukonka who was patiently waiting to file in his nominations.
There was an exchange of insults between the cadres while Mwiimbu who was on the roof top of his BMW vehicle continued flashing the party symbol.
Both cadres from UPND and MMD however, could not turn physical violent but kept on insulting each other.
Meanwhile four candidates have successively filed in their nominations ahead of next month’s tripartite elections.
Mwiimbu of the UPND was the first one to file after the UNIP candidatefor Monze Central Collins Mwanabaleya failed to raise ten supportersfor his nominations but later managed to bring in supporters after theUPND were done.
Givier Nsanya of the PF was the third to successively file in his nominations and described the exercise as the beginning of the battle.
In an interview, Nsanya said change is coming and should start with Monze District by electing credible leaders who can deliver.
Victor Mukonka was forth and has promised the people of Monze a credible leadership which will always side with the poor.
Other candidates still being awaited to file in are FDD, APC, ADD and Independent candidates.
