ADD president Charles Milupi says President Michael Sata's latest creation of new districts has no practical use as it is all for political mileage.

Commenting on President Sata's decision to turn Luampa, Sioma, Sikongo and Nalolo areas of Western Province into districts, Milupi said in an interview yesterday that it would be useless to create new districts when there was nothing to show in the other newly-created districts.

Milupi said all the new districts that had been created were not catered for in the 2013 budget and, therefore, the developmental claim would be useless.

"President Sata is merely making pronouncements so that he can get political mileage which has no practical use," Milupi said. "That is his problem; he thinks he has to do things like that.

Ever since he went in the job, he has been creating this, creating that, with no planning, no budget to effect those things. And if there is no budget, the plans are hopeless."

He added that President Sata had created districts such as Mulobezi, which was removed from Sesheke district, to which no substantial changes had been noted.

"If you look at the previous districts that were created and physically go there and see what is happening…go to Mulobezi and check what is happening, there is nothing," said Milupi.


MMD is losing direction - UPND

THE UPND says MMD is losing direction each day that passes ever since it lost power to the PF.

Special advisor to UPND president, Hakainde Hichilema, Douglas Siakalima told QFM on Monday that the UPND felt sorry for the MMD because it did not have the experience of being in the opposition.

Siakalima said the MMD should stop accusing the UPND of creating some of the problems it was facing, but instead remain steadfast and learn opposition politics.

Siakalima said the leadership of the MMD should sit down and resolve the issues affecting the party to avoid further destruction of the party.

He said the MMD should realise that it was no longer the ruling party hence the need to stay focused.

MMD president Nevers Mumba said MMD needed UPND to remove PF from power.

This was despite UPND vice-president Richard Kapita declaring that UPND was no longer interested in a pact with MMD.
