THE United Party for National Development (UPND) says its national management committee (NMC) will proceed to discuss the fate of its suspended vice-president for political affairs Canisius Banda (left) if he fails to exculpate himself within the seven-day period, which ends today, as stipulated in the letter of suspension.

But Dr Banda has maintained that he will not respond to the letter, which has not been served on him but is circulating on social media.

UPND spokesperson Charles Kakoma said in an interview yesterday that the opposition party has failed to serve the letter of suspension on Dr Banda because he is allegedly of no fixed abode and cannot be traced.

And DrCanisius Banda posted the following message hinting that he has decided to quite UPND

FAREWELL MY FRIENDS [The Sentimental Case of Parting Company]:

…nothing lasts forever.
The only constant we know, Pilgrim, is change.
It is through change that everything stays the same.
I love music, you see.
I now dedicate to you all my dear and beloved friends a wonderful song by Andrea BOCELLI and Sarah BRIGHTMAN.
Listen to it, Pilgrim.
It is entitled ‘Time To Say Goodbye’.
There is a time for everything.
There is a season for everything.
A purpose for everything under the Heavens.
A time to join a political party and a time to leave it.
I selflessly gave all that I had to give.
The assignment God gave me to perform, that is help another human being on a given task, has now been accomplished.
It is over.
It is finished.
It is now time to say goodbye!
Farewell, my friends. Farewell.
…we are Pilgrims on a journey…
His vessels.
I have got to go now. Take my hand. We have got other lives to touch…other services to render…
We are done here.
…though the platforms may vary, our service to humanity in His honour will remain the same…emission of light is our calling…
Farewell.
Adios amigos.
Goodbye, my dear and beloved friends. I will miss you.
…and I thank you.
I have got to go now!
..Pilgrim, ‘Dare To Live’. That is another song by Andrea BOCELLI but this time with Laura PAUSINI. Listen to it.
The journey continues…
Kindly share.

    • And as a party you take this disingenuous senseless statement as a wise, honorable and safe crafted alibi for propaganda? No wonder UPND is irredeemably a doomed project. How long has CB been VP to Hichilema to be homeless? This narrative attest to the fact that you’re souless mourauders not worth aligning with. If you have been picking a VP from the streets, dumping him there and today you are clueless of where to find him, then you are a legion of straight jacket counterfeits. What an insult on the Zambian political enterprise. UPND need to find smart brains for spine Doctor than this subnormal artwork.

    • Not too long ago you are the same people who were telling us that Dr Banda’s housing situation was sorted out after that saga of him getting evicted. Now you are claiming he is still homeless? Ba UPND mwalifulungana bongobongo sana mwebantu imwe ka.

      This is the man who was second in command to HH for a long time, now that he has decided to leave you in peace, you want to portray him has a pauper. How can you exist all this time Dr CB has been with you, serving at such a high in the Party, without you knowing where he lives? Uleke UBUFI iwe Charli Kakoma!

    • Seriously Canicius Banda is a pilgrim, what kind of president can he make? He can make a fantastic minister of arts and culture. Poems in politics are not interesting.
      The man lost his wife and lost his mind. He should just keep silent and enjoy people’s sympathy.

    • Canisius’ political journey is more or less like that of Reuben Lifwekelo. They both supported MMD, when the latter lost power they jumped ship immediately and joined UPND because they were too ashamed to go to PF. Now, that UPND failed to get into power they have humbled themselves and trekked to PF.

  1. Hakashide this how you lost the Petition. How do you proceed to discuss the fate of Your Vice President who has already left the Dump Site Party?
    Instead of concentrating on intro Party Mess you’re busy Touring Prisons trying to Incite Unruly Violence. Zambians are not interested in your self egocentric tactics.
    Just get on with it. End of Political Career.

  2. How could UPND really confirm Canisius as its top official and Vice President when he had no fixed abode? How were other logistics for party mobilisation and other functions being actualised with a person they could not find other than on his cell phone and laptop? …

    • Exactly my thoughts! This simply confirms it; UPND is not a serious party, how do you have a vagabond for V/president in charge of politics? This is only possible in a grouping of lunatics, not among self professed intellectuals. My foot!

    • U have hammered the nail on the head. How can a party have people holding high positions without knowing where they sleep or spend their night. I think even Halusa Halusa does not have a home. Thats why they just want to bring confusion because they are confused people with no fixed aboard. This is dangerous unless they are shielding their leader who misjudged big tme…. a wrong way to make up for a mistake.

  3. Rent money forced the Doctor to sell his soul to PF.
    As RB said “Izamunyokola njala akawele milomo pyuu”.

    The calibre of Zambian Doctors/Professors is very very low.
    e.g.
    Prof. Mvunga
    Dr. Canisius Banda
    Dr. Katele Kalumba
    Prof. Luo
    Dr. Dan Pule
    Dr. Machungwa

    Show me one upstanding Zambian Dr./Prof, I’ll show 100.

    • They may look simple but they have the knowledge to impart in many Zambian for a better tomorrow. Thank God, they came back to serve among their own people helping improve the quality of Life. Politics has made many good medical doctors lives misplaced and lawyers. Only Eric Silwamba has come out victorious…and concentrate of his vocation there after. We hope Dr. Banda will find a re-thyme again

  4. THIS IS A SHARE WORST OF TIME. ALL LEADERS OF EASTERN PROVINCE ARE WAKO NI WAKO, EXCEPT PAR-CHIEF GAWA UNDI THE STRONGEST CHIEF IN EASTERN. DID DORA JOIN PF WHEN SATA WAS PRESIDENT- NO, DID BANDA RB JOIN PF WHEN SATA WAS IN POWER- NO, DID L BANDA JOIN PF WHEN SATA WAS IN POWER- NO. TODAY DR. LOST C. BANDA SAYS I HAVE DECIDED TO GO AFTER SAILING ALL HIS CREDENTIALS TO LUNGU AT STATE HOUSE THEN SAYS BYE.

  7. I remember when the issue a Banda not having a house and failing to pay rentals in PHI came up a few months ago. Members of under 5 party defended their then VP with lives. Even himself came up bragging how he has built so many houses for his mother etc. We suggested to the rich god of Tongas to donate a house to his VP and we were castigated heavily by the tribal people.

    • Mr. Kci …. logically one can have so many properties and be of no fixed abode. If you really go by its meaning …. if anything having many properties can indeed make you of no fixed abode! try to fully understand its meaning before suggesting he has no house to stay in as most bloggers are insinuating. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE …. no fixed abode is not equal to not having a House …The two are mutually exclusive. So Mushota has asked a genuine question

  8. THERE IS NEED TO SHOW CIVILITY IN EVERYTHING WE DO. IF YOU HAD NOT YET SERVED THE LETTER ON HIM, WHAT WAS THE RUSH IN GIVING IT TO THE MEDIA? LETS SHOW MATURITY IN EVERYTHING WE DO. THIS IS THE MORE REASON POLITICAL PARTIES HAVE CONTINUED TO ATTRACT POORLY QUALIFIED PEOPLE COZ OF THE MANNER IN WHICH SUCH ISSUES ARE BEING HANDLED.

    • I agree with you Jay Jay low. The UPND secretariat could have simply phoned Dr.Banda to find out where he was and delivered the letter to him. We should stop these kind of arrangements where letters meant for certain individuals are circulated in the media before the person it is meant for receives it.It does not augur well for the party be it PF or FDD or whichever party is concerned. Anyway sad ending for Dr.Banda’s journey with UPND.Wishing him the best.

  9. You have a VP and you do not know where his abode is (fixed or mobile)!!!??? Un-effing-believable if you ask me. Anyhow, that is Afrika for you. On the other hand, the good Doctor appears to be pushing back in a fashion that shows he is crowded in a corner from where he has no more space but to spring at the marauders… Oops!

  10. UPND could not look after their VICE president and let alone care to serve him the letter in the proper manner, how do you expect them to serve the people in far flung areas better? Kakoma should be ashamed to be used by the owner of UPND to convey his fear of being challenged for presidency when that time comes and am sure it’s not far away from now. The Doctor should just move on. Things change and sometimes the change is so illogical but we must move on. GOOD LUCK TO YOU Mr. BANDA.

  11. A whole Dr and VP doesn’t have a home of his own?How reckless can one be? This Guy had already betrayed HH and UPND by the time he was suspended. This is good riddance. UPND does not need a person like Dr CB let alone as a VP. Just imagine if HH had made a mistake of choosing CB as a Running Mate? The Dr is a disaster and let him join the Panga Family and reap rewards from stealing elections. In no time CB will be fired from his new job and hounded out of the violent PF Party.CB has just joined his “Kumodzi kumaawa” friends like Lungu, RB,Chulu etc. Its all Wako niwako gravy train. CB enjoy the ride while u can.

  14. Please give us a break and stop this washing of dirty linen in public. If Banda has no fixed abode, then how did you entrust him with such a senior and sensitive position (Vice President) in your party?? Does that show seriousness on your part?? It is like a bank giving me a loan and then when they try to pursue me for default then they discover that they do not know where I stay-they would end up firing the bank manager who approved my loan. That is why serious institutions demand as many documents as possible, eg. utility bills.

  15. UPND is not a Party but a “private company” owned and managed by HH. If you do not tow the line you get fired and you lose your benefits such as Housing. That’s how come Dr CB suddenly has no fixed abode . My ten point plan to rebrand UPND will include doing away with housing allowances so that we are able to attract genuine,high profile and financially independent members like the Sikota , chisanga, bashi nono etc who can not be compromised. Nevers Mumba and other beggars will not help advance the Party cause in the long term. The man is broke , we are already paying for his house, car, petrol and stipend. He doesn’t apply his own mind on political matters anymore and we have unleashed him on PF and barks very Loud so for us.

  16. Didn’t you as a party have his email address as well? You could have sent him that letter using the Internet. Only irrational hardcore cadres will buy your story of him being of no fixed abode.

  17. Substituting canicius Banda for GBM ids what messed up HH. Cannicious Banda has done a lot for the party, he maybe poor and done a little financial contribution but the man has been with UPND when it was alomost nothing. No that it has grown they are sidelining him. He who kills by the sword by the sword. HH and his vulgar language will cry foul in 2021. They will even go to Dundumwezi to pertition the election results. Money cant buy everything. Cannicious Banda was the best vice president UPND has ever had

  18. Something is terribly wrong in the UPND and they need to sort themselves out before things get very worse. The issue is not DR Banda but the entire grouping which has no respect for themselves. It is strange how UPND can be speaking like this about DR Banda and himself about the party. These people are suffering from election loss and they all need to take a break from active politics, they are exhausted and not thinking properly. Kakoma and your friends man up and stop this nonsense asap!

  20. Dr. Banda was so heart-broken, when i watched him on the news last night, i could here it in his voice and saw it in this eyes. But he kept his emotions together. Dr. Banda, God will bless you more than those that are expecting less and bad to happen to you. You did the right thing.. Leave the Slayers. Take a vacation and necessary rest . Trust God and your self.. Human are canning , you do good, they will still find faults., You do bad, they get happy and look for more faults. SHUT the DOORS to those people you feel dont deserve to walk through them… Life continues. Ask God forgiveness and forgive your self for what ever you feel you did wrong , Think positively all the time and positive results will manifest with time. I hope have a good family that can support you without judgement…

  22. So Upnd is both rogue and criminal organization that can have its VP whose home and whereabouts they don’t know? Only criminals don’t want to know where each one is coming as a strategy to avoid leading the law to their homes by those who may be caught.

  25. #MALOZA. YOU SHOULD NOT DARE THE PROFFESSIONALS. CANISIUS BANDA IS A (MD-MEDICAL DOC) NOT That one as PhD.
    You need to respect these Titles are earned ! not plucked like tomato.
    There are a number of successful PhD professionals.
    let me give just one since you asked for one.
    Dr. J.Kaoma Technical Director for Kafue steel. He is the brain founder if melting Zambia s scrap metals into steel!.
    we are talking of practical things not politics.
    I can go in and on.
    But we also have those who are mascarading as Dr. for example Dr Kaingu, Dr Mumba Cosmo etc Yes I agree the likes of Prof. Muvunga its a shame.
    The point is in life every one has had a chance. MD-Banda had a chance to settle long before even jumping into politics. I mean hr could be in his late 50 or early 60 so for him…

  26. Evidently, they also do not have his mobile number! When they call a meeting how do they notify him? Perfectly ridiculous defence, because it has dawned on UPND that terminating someone’s post through the Media is an abuse of his rights, his standing in society. This message has been put out as damage limitation in case he sues them, for he most certainly will win.

    Dr Banda well done for leaving Hell. You should feel no sorrow, for in Heaven not Heavens ( for there is only one where Jehovah God Almighty resides); there is much rejoicing that a lost son has left purgatory and is now in a state of grace. Go back to Christ, confess and ask for forgiveness for your blindness. He is able to Forgive and wash your sins whiter than snow first and freshly fallen.

  27. I nearly fell off my chair, the whole entire doctor is of no fixed abode. Honestly, what was the need for the whole education then if one was to end up being of no fixed abode? No wonder HH dumped him for GBM, I mean, who in their right frame of mind would have respect for someone of no fixed abode? And if the man is of no fixed abode, just how the hell s he going to fix the woes that have made so many other Zambians today to be of no fixed abode if he has failed to save himself? Mwana wa kwitu, uzende uleke wanya munyamata iwe!

  29. Dr Banda may be laughed at today and castigated by those with money in UPND but remember money is not everything. Banda has left today and has people that supported his joining of the UPND like me and others who I know are exiting the party that we loved so much, because of some selfish opportunists like Nevers Mumba, who is by now very excited and positioning himself to take over from Banda, we are aware of the happenings in the party we regret having been with you. He has been there peddling all sorts of lies against our former VP. Be reminded that GOD is seeing, thank you and stay blessed. In conclusion read Proverbs 6:16-19
