A senior member of the opposition Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) Brebner Changala says the looming appointment FDD leader Edith Nawakwi as republican vice president has no blessing of the party.
Mr. Changala says the FDD is convinced that their leader is joining the patriotic front government.
He says it is surprising that Ms. Nawakwi has embarked on attacking opposition political parties at the expense of mobilizing her party which he says she has run down since taking over from late Christone Tembo.
Mr. Changala has since pointed out that it will be prudent to leave the party which she has allegedly damaged.
UPND party deputy spokesperson Edwin Lifwekelo has castigated Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) leader Edith Nawakwi and called her a job seeker.
He says Ms. Nawakwi has failed the women in politics by depleting the gains made by ate FDD president Christone Tembo.
Mr. Lifwekelo says under late General Tembo, FDD had more than 22 Members of Parliament but that the party has one MP under Ms. Nawakwi.
And Mr. Lifwekelo says a cabinet reshuffle is looming in the PF government which will see Ms. Nawakwi take up the position of Republican Vice President while Dr. Guy Scott is set to become minister without portfolio.
He claims that Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda will be retired to pave way for Bob Sichinga.
