Opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) vice President Cannicius Banda has charged that the ruling Patriotic Front has lost the legitimacy to govern.
Dr Banda says the PF has lost legitimacy to government the country based on the many unfulfilled promises they promised the Zambian people in the run up to the 2011 tripartite elections.
He says the Zambian people based their judgment to usher the Patriotic Front into power on the numerous promises made to them which have proved to be mere rhetoric.
Dr Banda adds that the PF’s foundation for governing the country is based on alleged lies which takes away their legitimacy to continue governing the nation.
Speaking to Qfm News, Dr Banda further expresses sadness at the government’s failure to diversify the economy from being over dependent on copper.
He further laments that the Kwacha has continued losing ground against major foreign currencies.
