The opposition Zambia Direct Democracy Movement (ZDDM) says it is still convinced that former president Rupiah Banda is the only leader that can manage to win a presidential election against any candidate from the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) in 2016.
This office of the former head of state has however already stated that Mr. Banda has no intentions to come back to politics.
The ZDDM is also of the view that Mr. Banda is also the right person to remind the people in the country that they have been cheated by the ruling PF because it has allegedly failed to fulfill its 2011 campaign promises.
In a statement released to Qfm ZDDM leader Edwin Sakala notes that this is because Mr. Banda understands how the people in the country were cheated as he was the head of state at that time the PF was making the promise it has allegedly failed to bring to fruition.
Mr. Sakala explains that it for this reason that people have been allegedly cheated by the ruling PF that the ZDDM considers the calling for the former republican president to come back into active politics a national interest.
