AFTER being left out of the Lukashya parliamentary race as ruling Patriotic Front (PF) candidate, Davies Mulenga has now branded the party as finished and as having nothing to offer to the Zambians.
Mr Mulenga, who resigned from the ruling PF yesterday to join the UPND a few days ago, says having been in the PF for 21 years, he had realised that the PF had lost its political value and that the party has nothing more to offer the people of Zambia.
He says his decision is in line with his Constitutional right to belong to any political party of his choice.
“I been in the PF for the past 21 years. The party has nothing to offer the people of Zambia. I want to make an official announcement that I have officially resigned from the PF.
“I believe in the ideology of the UPND. I have already joined UPND and there is no turning back. I have the right to choose whom to associate with either politically or otherwise,” said Mr Mulenga.
And UPND elections chairperson, Garry Nkombo, says Mr. Mulenga’s decision is in exercise of his right to association and conscious.
“Mr. Mulenga has been a candidate of the PF during the Lukashya adoption process in which he was not successful. I can actually confirm that he resigned yesterday (Sunday). This is in exercise of his Right of Association and conscious,” Nkombo said.
