Patriotic Front leader Michael Sata has called for an end to bickering in the PF/UPND pact using the press.
Speaking when he featured on the special edition of the Public’s Last Say on QFM this morning, Mr Sata says if there are weaknesses noticed in the PF/UPND pact, they should not be brought out using the media.
Mr Sata says he agrees with the concerns of the Zambian people on the pact.
He says there is also need to bring about discipline in the membership of both the PF and UPND by ensuring that no member of any of the two parties issue media statements about the pact anyhow.
Mr Sata adds that there is need for the UPND and PF to reorganize themselves following their poor performances in the recent ward by-elections in which the MMD won most seats.
He notes that the two parties did not do well in the local government ward elections hence the two parties need to reorganize instead of bickering.
He further states that picking the pact’s presidential candidate today before the two parties reorganize will not help.
Meanwhile Mr Sata says he hates violence regardless of who is perpetuating it.
He says he could however not say much on the case in involving PF Kasama central Member of Parliament Geoffrey Mwamba who battered his wife on Sunday in order not jeopardize the investigations by the Police in the matter.
Mr Sata says it is for this reason that he has always condemned any acts of violence.
Yesterday Police recorded a warn and caution statement from Mr Mwamba for assaulting his wife, Chama following a domestic dispute.
