  2. Forgery has nothing to do with political parties its personal and those found wanting should simply get arrested and charged! The list of forgers is long were it to be compiled, mind you one Masumba was found guilty of the same! Stories must not promote mediocrity for next we’ll be reading reports that so and so of such political party was arrested for urinating in public under the influence of alcohol!

  5. Please don’t dramatise this issue of Mr. Felix Kuwema being arrested for forging a Grade12 Certificate there are many out there and these are some of the sticky issues which people ignored when drafting the amended constitution. Its very difficult in rural areas of Zambia to find people with proper grade 12 certificates. The few that got them are either working in urban areas or are in govt. service. Kuwema and the other man from Mufumbwe yes they are charged for their offences as Zambians in their individual capacity not as UPND citizens. Please Mr. Daka give proper statements. When a cop commits an offence he or she is charged in their individual capacity.
