Zanu-PF has scoffed at MDC-Alliance's remarks on the ruling party following the victory of Zambia's President-elect Hakainde Hichilema in the recently held elections saying the opposition party's conduct exhibits cardinal political immaturity. The opposition party has been leading a campaign on social media platforms seeking to gain cheap political capital from Mr Hichilema's win.   

The revolutionary party's spokesperson Simon Khaya-Moyo said Zambia and Zimbabwe were sovereign States who needed no external  interference when holding their elections.

"MDC-A's conduct following recently held national elections in Zambia demonstrates cardinal political immaturity. The revolutionary Zanu-PF party is fully aware that elections were held by a sister sovereign state of Zambia, that great country. No outside political party could have participated, let alone the MDC-Alliance," he said. Khaya-Moyo urged the opposition party to keep off elections of sovereign States.  

"Zimbabwe held its harmonised elections of 2018 and MDC-A are still licking their wounds of defeat. More is to come in 2023," he said. Khaya-Moyo said the ruling party's position was fully reflected in the congratulatory message sent to Zambia's President-elect Hichilema.

"The revolutionary Zanu-PF's position in relation to the recently held elections in Zambia are fully reflected in the congratulatory message sent by the President, First Secretary and Head of State Mnangagwa to President-elect Hakainde Hichilema for the resounding victory.  "There is no need to waste time on the MDC-A antics," he said.
