Former president Rupiah Banda with President Lungu at one of the campaign rallies

Former president Rupiah Banda has distanced himself from Felix Mutati’s opposition MMD faction.

Mutati whose faction went into an alliance with Edgar Lungu’s ruling party, PF was fired last week from Cabinet.

In what is seen as fear of ruing his relationship with President Lungu, president Banda has turned down an invitation at the MMD Lusaka province card renewal ceremony.

In a statement issued by his office, president Banda is too busy with international engagments to attend Mutati’s MMD function.

Banda according to MMD insiders helped Mutation assume the MMD presidency and brokered an alliance with PF.

With Mutati being fired, it is clear that the alliance has equally collapsed.
