And in an interview, Mwanawasa said she had nothing against the UPND.
“It’s my constitutional right to decide what I want to do. I am not a professional person and I have gone back to my profession, what’s the beef? I don’t know why people would want to start spreading rumours that maybe I have been given a job in PF. Why don’t they wait and see if that say will come so that they can confront me that you said this and now you have crossed. So, they should be worried if I carried any assets from UPND which I must account for, what have I carried?” she asked.
“There are still principled people in this country. I have said I am not doing politics, not any time soon. People should not assume, they should wait and see if I will stick to my principles. They should not forget that being former first lady, must as it is not recognised in the Constitution, that’s an institution and it goes with certain responsibilities and duties. Under the Maureen Mwanawasa Community Initiative, we are doing something. We run schools, and I have never stopped since I left State House.”
