Lusaka Mayor, Steven Chilatu, has withdrawan his participation from the National Constitutional Conference (NCC).
In a Letter to Patriotic Front President, Michael Sata, the Mayor, said he was duped to particpate in the NCC by people who he claims had ulterior motives.
Mr. Chilatu further said his participation in the NCC was not only a violation of his party’s regulations, but also an act of betrayal.
The Mayor, who has pleaded with Mr. Sata to forgive him, said he has betrayed the confidence and trust that the party president had in him.
He said he was naive to participate in the NCC and that it is one of the most regretable and costly mistakes of his life.
Mr. Chilatu has asked Mr. Sata and the Patriotic Front to accept him back into the party, describing himself as a prodigal son.
