Talk of an alliance with the UPND premature – NDC

The opposition NDC says talk of a working pact with fellow opposition party UPND are premature.

Reacting to UPND deputy secretary general Patrick Mucheleka who said the two parties should work together, NDC secretary general Mwenya Musenge said his party has not explored prospects of an alliance and that members across the country should ignore such discourse.

Musenge called on members to concentrate on mobilising structures because his party had high chances forming government in 2021 if the party goes it alone.

“The NDC has never engaged in any talks with the UPND on prospects to explore a possible alliance. Therefore, talk that the NDC should venture into a working pact with our counterparts from the UPND are premature.

“As NDC, we urge all our members countrywide to therefore ignore such discourse. All our members countrywide should instead preoccupy themselves with mobilizing structures in their respective localities.The NDC has high chances of forming Government in 2021 as a single entity going by the support we are receiving countrywide,” he said.

He said his party has never engaged in any talks with the UPND hence talks of a possible alliance should come to an end.

“The NDC has continued receiving overwhelming response from all corners of Zambia an indication that the party has well been received. We also want to state that the NDC has never engaged in talks with the UPND leadership on a possible alliance. As NDC, we therefore like to bring this discourse to an end.

“However, we appreciate the gesture by our colleagues in UPND for opening up suggestions for a possible alliance with the NDC.”
