MMD presidential hopeful Nevers Mumba has complained that members of the former ruling party are being persecuted by the Patriotic Front government.
Mumba said despite the ‘harassment’, MMD had managed to withstand the intimidation.
He said the PF government was trying hard to weaken the MMD from the time it lost the elections in the 2011 election.
He recalled that government had gone to the extent of grabbing MMD campaign vehicles and other properties in an effort to cripple it.
Dr. Mumba has also praised the MMD national secretary Maj. Richard Kachingwe for working hard and ensuring that the former ruling party remains strong.
