MMD prioritizing mobilizing itself – Mutati
Opposition Movement for Multi-party Democracy MMD leader, Felix Mutati says the former ruling party will first prioritize mobilizing itself before it considers contesting in any election.
Mr. Mutati says it is every political party’s ambition to contest elections because this is the primary reason of their existence but that the MMD is focused on mobilizing party structures across the country.
He says politics is not merely about ambitions but rather creating a strong membership base that is capable of making a difference.
Mr. Mutati says he will not be blinded by the future aspirations but will concentrate on gathering as many members as possible.
On Saturday, party members in Luangeni constituency of Eastern Province demanded that Mr. Mutati should contest in the 2021 elections without going into an alliance with any political party.
