Gen Miyanda : I Almost Quit Politics Last Year

Heritage Party Strongman and leader, Brigadier General Godfrey Miyanda, has likened the dishing out of money by certain political parties in the ongoing campaigns to scenes of throwing money in Nigerian movies.
Speaking when he featured on qfm radio’s Public’s Last Say last evening, General Miyanda notes with sadness the use of financial muscle by some political parties to win votes.
He notes with regret that Zambian politics has completely changed compared to the old days when money was not the issue in an election.
General Miyanda bemoans the fact that Zambians seem to have embraced the trend by politicians to use money to win votes.
He says he believes that when politicians dish out money to voters it makes them the bosses of the people instead of the people themselves being the bosses.
He adds that his party’s major challenge in its campaigns has been funding to enable it reach out to many parts of the country.
And General Miyanda says he almost quit politics last year because he felt it was a waste of time.
He says every time something comes up in the country which makes him continue in politics in order to liberate the country from the kind of politics going on.

    Only the strong survive General. You have been to war, I bet and you know very well that the last person to die in a war zone is the Commander.

    So MMD is in control for now and will do everything within its powers to die hard.

    I think your decision to quit politics is noble
