Despite UPND having lesser numbers in the PF-UPND alliance it demanded to be an equal partner. Of which the PF accepted.
In it’s Demand for equality, it had requested the pact to be changing from PF-UPND PACT TO UPND-PF PACT and if the pact was to hold a briefing to the public, the two leaders would change who addresses first.
All the demands were met except one, who would lead the pact. Hakainde has had a history of wanting to lead even where it does not suit him and that was the case with the PF-UPND pact. Despite PF being the biggest in numbers, the UPND insisted that HH should lead and Micheal Sata should be the vice.
Well that didn’t work and the expected happened. Mr Sata could not work with HH.
The NDC leader Kambwili had also gotten into an alliance with UPND with a promise of being a running mate of Hakainde.
It was not long before Hakainde appointed madam Nalumango as the vice president without informing the NDC of the new changes.
Kambwili feeling pressured decided to interpret Hakaindes appointments in his own way when he claimed Nalumangos appointment had nothing to do with the opposition alliance but the UPND.
It was not long before Hakainde again changed the name from opposition Alliance to UPND alliance, only then did it dawn on Kambwili that he was not a factor anymore in the UPNDs agenda for power.
But he should have seen it coming, if Hakainde failed to work with Mr Sata what made him sure he could breach where the PF failed.
