Foundation for Democratic Process (FODEP) Executive Director MacDonald Chipenzi has been challenged to step down from his position following reports that he has applied to contest Siavonga parliamentary seat under the UPND.
PF Mandevu Constituency Chairman Joseph Tamba alleges that the ruling party has information that Mr. Chipenzi has applied to contest the Siavonga seat on the UPND ticket.
Mr. Tamba says Mr. Chipenzi will do well to leave the civil society organization and join active politics.
But Mr. Chipenzi says he will make a formal announcement if at all he will express interest in contesting any seat.
He lamented that it is unfair that some media houses have already blacklisted him from coverage because of such unsubstantiated reports.
