MMD Chairperson of Energy Mr. Tobias Kafumukache says UPND Chilanga Member of Parliament Keith Mukata should be commended for his stance to defend democracy and disobey UPND dictatorial propaganda by the UPND leadership.
Mr Kafumukache said Mr Mukata should be commended for his bravery act and standing up to cheap dictatorial tactics of UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema.
He said Mr Mukata being a Graduate of Democracy from the MMD School of Politic showed that he clearly knows that it is the Great People of Chilanga who elected him to Parliament and not the UPND leader.
Mr. Kafumukache further said as opposed to cheap politicking the People of Chilanga are in a hurry for development hence he obeying by walking out of Parliament would have been an insult to them because he reports to his voters and not Mr Hichilema.
On Sunday the UPND President said Mr Mukata’s actions did not represent the interest of the people who voted for him in Chilanga who are being detained by the PF.
Mr Hichilema said Mr Mukata’s action clearly shows that he is only interested in himself and not the people, and the party adding that in due course the nation will be informed of what actions will be taken against him.
Mr Mukata defied the orders by UPND President for all UPND MPs to boycott the Presidential address to Parliament a move which has since been received with mixed feelings by stakeholders .
