Dr Mumba has told QFM in an interview that if the PF had doubts following its losses in the Solwezi east,Chipata central and Kafulafuta by-elections, the loss in Mkaika should remove every doubt that Zambians are upset with them.
He says the people of Mkaika have handed the MMD a landslide victory because they have realized that the PF cannot perform.
He added that the MMD victory should be a reminder to the PF to concentrate on delivering on the promises they made to the people and not creating by-elections.
Dr. Mumba said the Patriotic Front should go back to the drawing board and put their house in order before things get even worse for them.
He said despite the MMD victory he believes by elections are unnecessary at this time.
The MMD president says he hopes the losses suffered by the PF will make them realize that the induced by-elections to prove their popularity are not helping the Zambian people.
And United Party for National Development (UPND) deputy Spokesperson Cornelius Mweetwa says his party is happy with the victory of the MMD.
He says the victory should send a strong message to the PF.
Mr Mweetwa has since congratulated the MMD on their victory in Mkaika, adding that the victory is a clear indication that the people of Zambia are fed up with the PF’s poor governance style and stagnant economy.
