Zambia union for financial and allied workers ZUFIAW president, Cephus Mukuka has observed that the UPND/PF pact has been a party to reckon with during its smooth operations.
He however notes that failure by the two parties to deal with the current turbulences being experienced will result in great apathy in the 2011 elections.
Mr. Mukuka also indicates that the two pact leaders need to realize that it will be an upfront to democracy if they allow their merger to break.
He has therefore challenged both Mr. Michael sata and his UPND counterpart, Hikainde Hichilema to quickly address the issues.
Mr. Mukuka says that there is great tension amongst the electorate in the country and the leaders of the pact have a responsibility to calm the situation.
He was speaking in an interview with Q fm.
