‘I am best running mate’


UNITED Party for National Development (UPND) vice-president for political affairs Canisius Banda says he is the rightful person to be adopted as party president Hakainde Hichilema’s running mate.

Dr Banda said in an interview yesterday that it is not possible that Mr Hichilema can turn against him, because he has been a loyal member of the party.

“This is because I joined the major opposition party, UPND, when it was not fashionable for many to join it,” Dr Banda said.
He said he joined UPND when it was labelled tribal and that the tag was the main thing of the day.
