vjVeteran Politician Vernon Mwaanga has dispelled speculations that he has joined the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) saying he is still a member of the MMD.

And the Veteran Politician has called on the youths to rally behind UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema in the forthcoming presidential by-elections slated for the 20th of January, 2015.

Dr. Mwaanga says he has not come back to active politics and that what he has done is just endorsing the UPND leader and not joining his party.

Dr. Mwaanga has stressed that Zambia is at a crossroads and it is high time the new generation took up national leadership.

Dr. Mwaanga furthermore stresses that he has confidence in the leadership of the UPND leader, adding that he is the man to take Zambia forward.

He has explained that he has only exercised his democratic and constitutional right by endorsing Mr. Hichilema’s candidature for the January 20th 2015 presidential by election which has been necessitated by the death of President Michael Sata.
