The opposition Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) has called on its members to embrace one another and stop name calling.
MMD National Secretary Muhabi Lungu said every member of the party was important and no-one was an opportunist.
Mr. Lungu said unity was key in any party and has since advised the members to use the normal established channels of communication in the party.
He was speaking in an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka today.
He said there was still room for the party to become strong again inspite of the infighting that rocked his party in the recent months.
A faction has arisen in the former ruling party with some MMD members opposed to party president Nevers Mumba’s leadership calling for an extra ordinary convention.
Mr. Lungu pledged to rebuild the party and ensure that the members who defected to join the ruling PF and other political parties re-join the MMD.
Mr. Lungu took over the position of party national secretary from MMD Senga Member of Parliament (MP), Kapembwa Simbao.
