United National Independence Party- UNIP- Presidential aspiring candidate Bishop Trevor Mwamba says the former ruling party is still relevant to the country’s political dispensation.
Bishop Mwamba, who is a clergy in the Anglican Church, says he wants to bring UNIP back to its glory days and build on the legacy left by first republican president Kenneth Kaunda.
Speaking in an interview with ZNBC News in Kitwe Bishop Mwamba who was flanked by his Aspiring Vice President Mike Kaira said once elected into office a deliberate policy of empowerment for youths will be rolled out countrywide.
He said UNIP is still a formidable force on the political arena and will bounce back in power.
And Mr. Kaira said UNIP has a proven record of delivering development to all parts of the country.
He said time has come for the former ruling party to take its place in Zambian politics.
UNIP will hold their elective National Congress next month and Bishop Mwamba and his team are going around the country to canvas for votes from would be delegates.
Bishop Mwamba is going against incumbent Tilyenji Kaunda for the UNIP Presidency.
