UPND officials in Livingstone are threatening to resign from the party and stay away its campaigns following information that the party has adopted former Livingstone deputy mayor Mathews Jere who is under investigations by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

The officials have threatened that once the party settles for Jere, then; the ruling PF’s Omar Munsanje will have an opportunity to go an opposite as Jere might be arrested.

The situation is reported to have changed after UPND provincial chairman Billiard Makwembo and other officials attempted to influence the process in favor Mathews Jere.

According to the information which was circulating among party officials in Livingstone, Makwembo and other senior party officials are alleged to have received money from Jere so that he can be adopted.

By law, Mathews Jere does not qualify to stand as a Member of Parliament due to the fact that the Livingstone City Council was suspended for gross misconduct by councilors by the Local Government Minister Stephen Kampyongo.

It further states that anyone who is removed from office due to misconduct does not qualify to stand for any political office.

Last week, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) issued a statement that UPND Livingstone central aspiring candidate Mathews Jere was under investigation in connection with the illegal sale of a piece of land in the tourist capital.

    • There are so many corrupt elements in your party Who are now seating on the high table. In fact voting for hh is tantamount to endorsing corruption because all the corrupt cohorts are from pf and mmd are positioning themselves for govt positions. Do you think GBM will accept been left out after sacrificing his life by spending nights in cells.

    • THE COMPLAINT IS GENUINE . THERE IS NO WAY JERE CAN BE ADOPTED AS LIVINGSTONE UPND PARLIAMENTARY CANDIDATE WHEN HE HAS ALL THOSE GREY AREAS AROUND HIS NAME. WAY TO GO FOR UPND, DROP THAT JERE NAME AND LET ANY OTHER PERSON WHO IS PEOPLE’S FAVORITE BE ADOPTED. WE DON’T WANT CORRUPTION AND MANIPULATIONS IN UPND. IT IS PF AND LUNGU WHO ARE USED TO MANIPULATIONS, NOT UPND.

    • They have started practicing corrupt behavior even before they form gvt. What will become of them if Zambians were to make a mistake of giving them power? You call PF thieves when infact you are the most dangerous thieves in waiting. Your president HH has already given us ka Dionko of how he plundered privatization money. You will never Rule Zambia.

  4. Father God, overthrow the plans of troublemakers, scorners, scoffers, mockers, persecutors, and character assassins of HH. Jehovah-Gibbor, contend with those who contend with HH; fight against those who fight against HH. Draw out Your spear and stop them in their way. Let them; be confounded and put to shame, fall by their own counsels, be turned back and brought to confusion. be as chaff driven by the wind. God, let your angel persecute them. Turn their way to be through dark and slippery places, with the angel of the Lord pursuing and afflicting them. Let them be put to shame and dishonor who seek and require HH’s downfall. Let them be turned back and confounded who plan HH’s hurt. God, let destruction come to them suddenly. Let them fall to their own destruction. Let destruction come…

  5. Compliant might be genuine but again a party should not run like that where you have to keep begging for some individuals to stay.

    Sometime you just need to take a firm stance like Micheal Sata, those who want to leave please show them the door then they will stop threatening and become more reliable party members.

  6. Upnd has deep rooted resentment of others other than ‘themselves’- no wonder hh finds it hard to smile in the presence of Mwamba, Sampa, sata… If they change name cards in Livingstone, then they’ll all be smiling and waving their hands like feasting vultures- bwafya! Meanwhile, Umuntu NiLungu!!!

  8. In Chirundu new constituency we want the UPND to adopt Mr. Workwell Siamaili as a preferred candidate for Chirundu Constituency. In the just ended primary elections Mr. Siamaili got 82 votes beating other contenders, he was seconded by Mr. Kamwaya with 60 votes, Mr. Douglas Syakalima got 30 votes and the former FODEP Executive Director Mac Donald Chipenzi only managed to get 9 votes. If Mr. Siamaili is not adopted we are going to vote for the PF candidate. Mr. Siamaili has done a lot for the people of Chirundu and he is very popular. This is the man people want to be adopted by the NMC as their most preferred candidate.

    • Mr. Siamali has not been there for the party. He only surfaced two years ago but still, never worked or supposed the update party. We also have evidence of him buying ward councillors on the eve of primary elections. That’s how he managed to get those votes. He is never on the ground. Since 2011, Mr. Kamwaya has helped keep the up nd spirit among chirundu residents burning. He has done more for constituency, supported local events and many other cause. He has been drilled twice as candidate for siavonga but has never been discouraged or relented to support the party. The last primaries he was no. 2 because of corruption that Siamali and Douglas siakalima used to buy people. Otherwise, he us the only preferred candidate. At district, constituency, provincial and even at national…

  10. UPND national management com ought to respect the will of the pipo at the grassroots. Most constituencies are threatened by NMC as they impose unpopular candidates. Gone are those days wen pipo vote for the party. We are now after candidates who will work for the pipo. In the case of Nangoma, we are aware of your intentions to settle for Collins Nzovu, the brother-in-law to HH. The influence may have come from HH’s in-laws. But then, are they helping the party? Hamusonde won during the primary elections, but how come you have adopted Collins. Wait and learn bitter lessons from Nangoma. We want BH. Nangoma is BH and BH is Nangoma. Whichever ticket BH will go to, we shall still vote for him. Moreover, HH’s wife has failed to demonstrate that she is the first lady in waiting. Go to…

  11. accusing Edgar for loadshedding is being very naive. Lungu wants to win the election so how can he deliberately cut power? Maybe HH has bribed Zesco to cheat us on the situation.

  14. Same stupidity upnd has done to chirundu by adopting useless siakalima who has not been there since 2011. Siamali has not been there for the party too. He only surfaced two years ago but still, never worked or supported the update party. We also have evidence of him buying ward councillors on the eve of primary elections. That’s how he managed to get those votes. He is never on the ground. Since 2011, Mr. Kamwaya has helped keep the up nd spirit among chirundu residents burning. He has done more for constituency, supported local events and many other cause. He has been dribbled* twice as candidate for siavonga but has never been discouraged or relented to support the party. The last primaries he was no. 2 because of corruption that Siamali and Douglas siakalima used to buy people…
