The Opposition Movement for Multi Party Democracy (MMD) on the Copperbelt says it is saddened by the Supreme Court’s nullification of Solwezi seat formerly held by Lucky Mulusa.

Copperbelt MMD Information and Publicity Secretary Yotam Mtachyalo says the Supreme Court nullification of Mr Mulusa’s seat comes at a time when the country is battling with poverty as by elections come at a great cost.

Addressing a media briefing in Ndola this morning, Mr Mtachyalo added that the development calls for the opposition to be united and strategize and subsequently come up with a common goal.

He said it is high time the opposition converged with an aim of providing hope for the Zambian people and not merely removing the current government from power.

Meanwhile, Mr Mtachyalo has charged that the desired constitution for the country will remain a pipe dream if Zambians continue being docile.

He said Zambians should this time around avoid being taken for a ride and demand for a people driven constitution by holding peaceful mass protests in their demand.
