Opposition Forum for Democracy and Development president Edith Nawakwi has predicted victory ahead of the August 11 presidential elections.

Ms. Nawakwi says FDD will win the elections ruling out the possibility of her supporting UPND or PF. She explains that in an event that a rerun is called, it will be FDD and with PF or UPND.

“FDD will definately be number 1 or 2! There is nothing like supporting UPND or PF,” she says.

She took a swipe at UPND president Hakainde Hichilema whom he accuses of always wanting to be supported. She cited a number of failed Alliances Hichilema had entered in the past. She said the FDD will not want to be used like in 2006 where her party with UNIP backed Hichilema under the pact called United Democratic Alliance (UDA).

“UPND was in alliance with UNIP and FDD in 2006 and it was a flop, they went into alliance with PF and later MMD. How many alliances is UPND going to enter,” she wondered.

Nawakwi says if UPND feels it had already won the 2016 then why was it asking other parties for support. She claimed that UPND was going round the country lying to people that the party is working with FDD.

“UPND (members) are notorious in number of areas, (forinstance) they are going round saying they are working with us. They must stop forthwith,” warned Nawakwi.
