President Rupiah Banda and his vice George Kunda should not be challenged at the convention because they have performed, according to Daniel Munkombwe.

Speaking when he paid a courtesy call on Copperbelt minister Mwansa Mbulakulima, Munkombwe, the deputy minister in the Office of the Vice-President, said Kunda was a genuine and robust Vice-President who should not be challenged at the MMD convention because he had done wonders for the country.

“You can only challenge a person who is not a performer. It is not always right to challenge a performer. Why should you put another person when there is already a relevant person? President Banda has performed and he has been rated as the most performed President,” Munkombwe said.

“How do you throw sand in the porridge, anyway? We will be there at the convention to see because I don’t see anyone challenging the two.”

Munkombwe said Vice-President Kunda had demonstrated his loyalty to President Banda, the MMD and Zambians.

“Why then should we go and put somebody else whose works we have not even seen?” he asked.

He said many people thought of challenging Vice-President Kunda because they had fantasies and dreams of becoming vice-presidents.

Munkombwe, who said he was one of the original politicians in the county, said the MMD had worked hard during the last few years to embarrass its critics.

“Those who criticise the MMD party cannot close their eyes because whatever they see is development. MMD is moving at fast speed. Some critics’ ears don’t even want to hear about the MMD government’s development,” Munkombwe said.

“President Banda is working hard and his government has performed. And this is because he is being assisted by a very robust and genuine Vice-President.”

And Mbulakulima said the MMD would take the opposition head-on and he was assured his party would win the general elections.
