UPND President Hakainde Hichilema says it is rude for anyone to question his decision to pick his vice president for administration Geoffrey Mwamba as his running mate.

Mr. Hichilema says as party president it is his right to chose who should be his running mate.

In an interview with QFM by telephone from Northern Province where he is campaigning, Mr. Hichilema it is unfair for people to continue questioning his choice for running mate when no one is talking about other political parties.

He has wondered why people are not questioning President Edgar Lungu’s choice for running mate vice president Inonge Wina.

Mr. Hichilema has reiterated that party vice president for political affairs Canisius Banda who some people expected to be his running mate still has value to the UPND.

He however, states that he has not spoken to Dr. Banda over his decision not to be part of UPND campaign team that currently on the campaign trail in Eastern province.
