Patrick Mwanawasa rejects RB’s plea to join his father’s party

Late President Levy Mwanawasa’s son Patrick has rejected President Rupiah Banda’s call for him to return to the ruling MMD.

Speaking with Qfm in an exclusive interview in Lusaka today, Patrick says he will not get back to the MMD adding that it is a foregone political party that has lost direction.

He says if President Banda regards him as his nephew, he should have groomed him in political leadership stating that the opposition Patriotic Front is the only party in the country that has embraced youths and women.

Patrick who is the PF’s aspiring parliamentary candidate for Kafulafuta constituency says his campaigns are progressing well adding that he is headed for victory.

He says people of Kafulafuta have realized that the MMD under the leadership of President Banda has neglected them as no major developments have taken place in the area since the demise of his father in 2008.

He has also urged Zambians not to believe what is being published in the public media about the MMD growing in support saying the reports do not reflect the situation on the ground.

He has since called on Zambians to vote for change of government in this year%u2019s general elections if the challenges they are facing are to be addressed.
