The MMD to use a different strategy when contesting the Msuzi local government by-election.

The Movement for Multi-Party Democracy MMD says it will use a different strategy when contesting the Msuzi local government by-election.
Provincial Chairperson, Jacob Mwanza says that the party has learnt a lesson from what happened during the filing in of nomination papers for Nthinthimila ward by-election.
Mr. Mwanza says that the MMD will not make its candidate known until the day of filing in of nomination papers.
Msuzi Ward fell vacant after death of area councillor Brown Chirwa in July but ECZ, the Electoral Commission of Zambia has not yet set a date for by-election.
The MMD candidate shocked his leaders and supporters, when he disappeared at the time he was expected to file in his nomination papers last week on Tuesday.
Meanwhile MMD suspended Youth Provincial Chairperson Chembe Daka says that what happened to MMD in Nthinthimila ward is a tip of what will happen in 2016.
Mr. Daka says that there is no way the candidate could have pulled out at the last minute if the MMD has strong national leadership.
He charged that more members are expected to pull a similar move in the run up to the 2016 general elections.
