The MMD last Thursday lost the Solwezi Central seat after its candidate Albert Chifita was out-polled by United Party for National Development (UPND)’s Watson Lumba. Mr Chifita who is former Solwezi District Commissioner got 4,457 votes while Mr Lumba garnered 5,669 votes.
In some instances, he said, the party structures had almost collapsed as the result of lack of coordination and effective organisation among some leaders saying the people still wanted the MMD and there was, therefore, need for reorganisation.
Mr Mulongoti, who is Works and Supply Minister, said leaders at all levels of the party should discharge their responsibilities for which they were elected saying that was the only way of making the MMD more effective.
“The electoral pact between PF and UPND was not founded on solid grounds. Zambians are yearning for a party that is going to offer alternative policies to the MMD. A party that is going to outline its sound economic policies to move the nation forward.
