Patriotic Front (PF) Leader Michael Sata has charged that reports indicating that President Rupiah Banda has replaced Parliamentary Chief Whip Vernon Mwaanga as his Campaign manager with Education Deputy Minister Boniface Kawimbe are a ploy.
Sata says the move is just a ploy by the ruling MMD to blindfold Zambians and keep Mwaanga out of the spotlight ahead of this year’s elections so that he continues to perform background roles.
He says this is not the first time that the ruling MMD has resorted to such tactics as they have done the same in the previous elections.
Sata was commenting on media reports that President Banda has replaced Mwaanga with Kawimbe as Campaign manager in this year’s polls. Media reports suggest that Mwanga was dropped due a disagreement between the two at the recent MMD convention which was held in Kabwe.
He said this in an interview with QFM.
