Former Copperbelt Province Minister Mwenya Musenge says he is contemplating forming his own political party.
In an interview today, Musenge, who was expelled from the ruling Patriotic Front along with former information minister Chishimba Kambwili on Saturday, said he was still consulting but forming a party was one was his options as he was a free citizen who could do whatever he wanted.
“You know, as a politician you are servant of the people and you don’t chat your destiny without the input of your masters who happen to be the people. So for now, I am making an effort to consult widely with the general populace more especially in Chimwemwe where I was a Member of Parliament. My wish is to go back to them and thank them for the support they gave me when I was their Member of Parliament and at the same time seek for guidance and advice on how I should proceed politically as an individual,” said Musenge.
“So until such a time that I have done wide consultations will I be in a position to make a final decision on what to do [as in] whether to retire from politics or to do a different angle altogether. So very soon I should be able to do that and I should be visiting a number of Churches where I shall be able to interact with the people of my former constituency. Forming a party is one of my options because as a Zambian I can always go along that route. But for now it is to try and cast my net wider and consult as much as possible on what to do next.”
