United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema has called on expelled PF Chongwe Member of Parliament Silvia Masebo to join his party.
Mr Hichilema says he believes Ms Masebo will make a positive contribution to the UPND.
Mr Hichilema has told QFM News in a telephone interview that Ms Masebo is more than welcome to join the UPND if she decides to do so.
Mr. Hichilema states that the UPND is open to all the people who wish to join because it is a party for all Zambians.
He adds that all the people who will be expelled from the ruling party and all those who wish to leave for various reasons are welcome to join the UPND.
The UPND Leader says the party needs people of Ms Masebo caliber.
Meanwhile, the Patriotic Front has summoned its Kasama Central Member of Parliament Geoffrey Mwamba to appear before the party’s disciplinary committee to answer to two charges levelled against him.
Mr. Mwamba is charged with gross misconduct and for bringing the name of the party and that of the Party President into disrepute.
In a letter to Mr. Mwamba and made available to ZNBC News,
PF Disciplinary Committee Chairperson Tutwa Ngulube says the party has written to Mr. Mwamba and he added that if Mr. Kasama central law maker fails to appear in person he will dispose-off the matter.
Mr. Ngulube has advised Mr. Mwamba to take the letter as a final notification.
