General News FDD directs party members to stop attending meeting not sanctioned by Secretariat

Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) National Policy Committee has directed all FDD members to refrain from attending any Party meetings that has not been sanctioned by the National Secretariat.

Speaking during a media briefing at the Party Secretariat in Lusaka yesterday, FDD National Chairperson Potiphar Chungu said anyone who will disregard the National Policy Committee’s directive risks being disciplined.

Mr. Chungu also revealed that National Policy Committee (NPC) during a two day meeting that was held in Lusaka from 25th to 26th March, 2017 ratified the decision of the standing Committee to expel the party Vice President Chifumu Banda who was recently expelled, adding that from now onwards Chifumu Banda will no longer be an issue in the FDD party.

He further disclosed that the National Policy Committee (NPC) also resolved to also expel 21 FDD Party members who are part of the leadership of the “Save FDD Committee” and he was quick to mention that all the expelled members will not be missed due to the fact that they were just rejects from other Political Parties apart from Chifumu Banda.

And Mr. Chungu noted that Lawrence Mwelwa who claims to be the National Coordinator of the “Save FDD Committee” has never been an FDD member and the only connection to the FDD is that he is the husband to the FDD Chiengi Member of Parliament Given Katuta who, adding membership in the FDD is by card not by marriage.

The Pan African Radio Journalist Hermit Hachilonde reports that Mr. Chungu has however stated that FDD has made tremendous Progress towards meeting the logistical requirements to hold the party National Convention.

  1. Nawakwi wa muyayaya. You fought against Hefty Jays third term bid and there you now doing exactly what u fought against. Gen C. Tembo honourably handled power to you but you failed lamentably to make a national mark n also handover power. Madam, remind yourself about what you about FTJ n let that be your message

  2. Wewe ka Nawakwi, you can’t read the writing on the wall! It’s high time to pass over the mantle and scepter of FDD. A content analysis of the latest media snippets indicates that FDD is in the media for the wrong reasons. Please, pass over the mantle magnanimously! There is honor in life when one accepts and acts according to reality…

  3. I’ve haven’t had a party since the death of Lt Gen Christon Tembo. I think it’s time I went back to FDD to resurrect what we stood for.

  4. Look at the arrogance of FDD in the last elections. Other parties requested FDD for unity of purpose and they were stubborn as usual. PF was smart, they knew what unity of purpose can do, they brought MMD, Christian Democrat party and other parties and won the election. The false confidence from FDD was pathetic to say the least.
