You will forgive for forgetting to announce the recent launch of the Alliance for Democracy and Development by Charles Milupi. I have been suffering from one-man parties fatigue. This is the fifth party launched in the last year! (In case you have forgotten the others : Mr Sondashi's FDA ; Saviour Chishimba UPP ; the mysterious ZANC ; and Chipimo's NAREP ). I have always defended the right of people to congregate despite the huge externalities involved. Lets us be clear Mr Milupi will not be President next year - neither has he started off on a democratic footing. Anyone who starts off in a party by declaring himself President must rightly be judged with skeptism.
