Lusaka Province Minister Mulenga Sata has defected to the opposition UPND.
Mr. Sata has since resigned his position as provincial Minister.
Mr Sata who is the eldest son of late president Michael Sata announced his defection to the UPND at media briefing at Lusaka’s Chainama hotel this morning where he was welcomed to the party by UPND president Hakainde Hichilema.
He says the PF has been destroyed by the decision to embraced former leaders of the MMD.
He says he has left the PF to hijackers who have ruined the vision and goals of his father.
Mr. Sata adds that life in the country is becoming more and more unbearable, noting that things are deteriorating, citing the hardships the people are facing.
He says what the country needs someone who will be able to manage the economy and tackle the challenges being faced.
Mr. Sata says UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema is the right person to run the affairs of the country.
