We didn’t push for degree clause, UPND MP

United Party for National Development (UPND) Mazabuka Central Member of Parliament Garry Nkombo has dismissed allegations that his party pushed for the Presidential clause which states that a presidential candidate should obtain a first degree or its equivalent to contest as Republican president.

Nkombo refuted allegations by MMD spokesperson Dora Siliya that the UPND was in the forefront in pushing for the presidential degree clause.

Nkombo said the clause would amount to discrimination and questioned the consciousness of NCC commissioners. He was speaking to MUVI TV News in Lusaka.
