Mr. Simusamba says the party is not run on tribal lines as can be clearly seen from its impressive performance in recent Mpongwe parliamentary by-election where it came second to the ruling PF.
He HAS told QFM News that his party is a national party and the biggest threat to the Patriotic Front’s continued stay in power.
He says this why the PF will do everything possible to tarnish the image of the UPND be giving it a tribal tag knowing too well the threat the opposition party poses.
Mr Simusamba says Mr. Munkombwe will always say bad things about the UPND in order to satisfy the PF for the job has been given.
Mr. Munkombwe is quoted as saying that the opposition UPND will never be successful politically because its leader Hakainde Hichilema runs the party on tribal lines.
