Patriotic Front Secretary General Davies Chama now says he wants the opposition to continue.
Last week, he said he wants Zambia to have no opposition but be like China.
But today Chama said the PF has no intention of taking Zambia back to a One Party State.
In a statement, Chama said the PF believes that Zambia must always remain a multi-party democracy were opposition parties exist to provide sufficient checks and balances
He said while it is not in the interest of a thriving democracy to see weakened political competitors, the PF will not take the blame when some opposition parties settle for self-destruction modes. Probably he meant MMD which is now a youth wing of PF.
Two days ago, the same Chama said he did not mind if the nation reverted to a one party state.
