Former Finance Minister and MMD presidential aspirant, Dr. Situmbeko Musokotwane has charged that next president of Zambia should come from a region that has not produced one.
Dr. Musokotwane told the privately owned Radio Phoenix that he was the best candidate to lead the MMD because the country needed an economic manager like him.
He has also rubbished reports that he is being backed by former president Rupiah Banda to take over the party.
The former ruling party is due to hold provincial convention to elect the new president of the party.
Dr. Musokotwane who is also MMD MP said he is very encouraged with the support he is getting from various parts of country.
