During a media briefing, Moonga said that Bwalya should contest for any position at the party’s convention in order to gauge where he truly stands in terms of popularity.
Moonga said Bwalya should learn from Hichilema who had struggled to win the presidency on five occasions on account of lack of political grounding from the grassroots.
“That’s the challenge his friend Hakainde Hichilema is facing today, HH thought being a businessman is as easy as becoming president”, he said.
He said that the demand by Bwalya for President Edgar Lungu to hand over power was a terrible joke.
And in commenting on the dialogue process, Moonga has said the party regretted that there were stakeholders that were working hard to undermine the process.
“Why are they refusing to come and participate when some of them are the ones who have been crying for this dialogue? But now that it has commenced they don’t want to participate,” he said.
