Brigadier General Miyanda says despite his unpopularity in past elections, his love for Zambia and respect for law gives him the strength to go on in a competitive political atmosphere.
He says he is well qualified to be president of the country and urged those undermining his ambitions to remember that politics is a dynamic game.
General Miyanda was speaking in Lusaka on Saturday when he made an appearance at the Press Freedom Committee Forum.
He was answering questions as to why he has continued to race for higher office despite his poor performance.
AND the Heritage party president has called on people not to discourage others vying for higher office as they have every right to do so.
