Lusaka Accountant Forms 3rd Liberation Movement Party
A 36 year old Lusaka-based accountant has formed a new political party called 3rd Liberation Movement.
Enock Tonga (right), who is the party president, says the party has been formed to give Zambia a third liberation from economic, political and social problems.
Mr Tonga, says Zambia had its first liberation from colonialists in 1964 followed by another liberation from the one party state in 1991.
He adds that his party wants to liberate Zambia through a third phase from man made sufferings when his party is ushered into government.
Mr Tonga has since thanked government for approving the registration of his political party without any challenges.
"I was born to serve and i feel its my right time to serve the nation. This is the first time am joining politics and am sure we can liberate this nation from its problems," said Tonga.
He says his party has not been formed for the sole purpose of contesting the 2016 tripartite elections.
"We, together with the people of Zambia will decide whether we contest the 2016 General Elections or not. But in forthcoming by-elections, we will field candidates," said the soft spoken opposition leader.
Acting Chief Registrar of Societies Kakoma Kanganja approved the registration of the 3rd Liberation Movement on June 4, 2014.
According to the certificate of registration, the political party met all requirements under the Societies Act Cap 119 of the laws of Zambia.
