A member of the opposition FDD on the Copperbelt has urged Edith Nawakwi to step down as party President.

FDD Copperbelt Provincial Coordinator N’shingebuka Shyamenda says the continued stay of Ms. Nawakwi in the office as FDD Leader is illegal.

Mr. Shyamenda says Ms. Nawakwi has already served two five year terms in office as FDD leader and should therefore vacate office.

Mr. Shyamenda has told Znbc News in a walk in interview that Ms. Nawakwi’s stay in office is at variance with Article 13 (2) of the FDD constitution.

He says the FDD constitution does not allow the party leader to be in office for more than two terms.

Mr. Shyamenda has since given Ms. NAWAKWI fourteen days in which to vacate the FDD Presidency to pave way for a National convention.

But FDD Copper belt Chairperson Mobilization Chairperson Yotam Mutayachalo says the view of Mr. Shyamenda does not represent party members on the Copper belt.

However, Mr. Mutayachalo says FDD Executive committee members on the Copperbelt will soon meet to discuss the constitution issues raised by its member.

Mr. Mutayachalo is however optimistic that the FDD will hold its National convention before the 2016 General elections.

He says party leader Edith Nawakwi has indicated that she is ready to go for a party convention where she will re-contest her position.

  5. Well, none of the Zambian Political parties respect their party constitutions. MMD if full of “anonymously”. PF same, UPND “only a Tonga can be UPND president”. No convention after so many defeats some parties and when they do the word anonymously comes in to play. We all talk of Democracy but charity should begin at the party level.

  6. “However, Mr. Mutayachalo says FDD Executive committee members on the Copperbelt will soon meet to discuss the constitution issues raised by its member.”
    SO, YOU GUYS YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW YOUR CONSTITUTION? THIS IS WHEN YOU WANT TO STUDY IT. THE QUESTION IS, IS THE SPEAKER LYING ABOUT THE TWO TERM IN OFFICE STAY?
