The United Party for National Development (UPND) has dismissed as a total fabrication reports suggesting that Dr. Nevers Mumba has been appointed as party vice president for politics replacing Dr. Canisius Banda.
UPND Secretary General Stephen Katuka says the story is malicious and has no substance.
He says at no time has the party’s National Management Committee sat to discuss any issue to do with the replacement of Dr. Banda.
Mr. Katuka noted that the party is not in a hurry to replace Dr. Banda and has not started discussing such issues.
He said the party is currently busy with other issues and has urged people to ignore the rumour on Dr Mumba’s alleged appointment.
Mr. Katuka stated that should anything be decided, the party will use the right channels to communicate.
