ZAMBIANS must strive to vote for a genuine leadership contrary to the current crop which is desperate to only enrich itself and its circle of friends, says Dr Fred Mutesa.

Dr Mutesa, who is president of Zambians for Empowerment and Development, said the people this year must be keen on choosing a leadership that had demonstrated interest for their numerous problems.

We want authentic and genuine leadership which is in contrast to the current leadership which usually thinks about their stomachs,” Dr Mutesa said in an interview prior to his rally on Monday.

He said people should seek change that would address unemployment and poverty prevailing in the country, and not just for the sake of it. “This is what is at stake; ... we do not want change that just improves the lives of politicians and their small circle of friends,” he said.

Dr Mutesa said the MMD was too embroiled in numerous scandals to be the people’s choice in this year’s election. “That’s why we disagree with the ruling party’s propaganda of showing us schools and clinics that are being built around the country.

It is not that these things are not good, they are simply too little, too late,” he said. Dr Mutesa said poverty and corruption had become characteristics of the MMD throughout its reign.
