MUCHINGA MMD member of parliament Howard Kunda says presidential ambitions are for those who are desperate. Kunda urged MMD members to support current party president Nevers Mumba.

He said he wanted to focus on reorganising youths in the MMD for the upcoming general elections in 2016 and that he still had faith the MMD could bounce back to power. He called for hard work among youths if they wanted to win the 2016 elections.

"My job at the moment is to reorganise the youth in my party. Presidential ambitions are for those who are desperate and who want to rush for things. I will wait for my time. My time is not yet here and when it comes, everyone will know. For now, we will support our current president Dr Mumba," he said.

Kunda said he could only have presidential ambitions after the current party leadership.

"I personally don't have any presidential ambitions for now. When people who are there are no longer there, then we can step in. For now, we have our party president in Dr Nevers Mumba, who we are preparing, and we will be backing him in the 2016 elections," Kunda said.

He said he had confidence in the current MMD leadership to deliver and win the 2016 elections, adding that all members needed to be committed if they wanted to get back to power.

Kunda said the MMD was still a strong party with structures countrywide.
