——The MMD in Mporokoso district has directed its members to shun today’s public rally which is due to be held by UPND president, Hakainde Hichilema, in the area.
In an interview with ZANIS in Mporokoso today, MMD Northern Province Youth Chairman, Webster Nkole, said the MMD had never been in a pact with the UPND hence the need for its members to stay away from the rally.
Mr Hichilema is expected to hold a public rally in Mporokoso around 14:00hrs this afternoon which is also expected to be attended by Lunte MMD MP, Felix Mutati.
Mr Nkole said reports circulating that that the MMD was supporting UPND because of Mr Mutati’s association with the UPND leader were false.
He said the MMD in Mporokoso and Lunte Constituency in particular was intact and was geared to support Dr Nevers Mumba.
Mr Nkole added that Mr Mutati’s allegiance to UPND was a personal matter which the MMD at the grassroots must dismiss with contempt.
