Patriotic Front (PF) provincial chairperson for North Western Jackson Kungo has said offered to sponsor the opposition United party for National Development (UPND) councillors who have been summoned by their party leadership to attend a caucus meeting in Lusaka.

UPND has asked its councillors countrywide to attend a meeting scheduled to take place in Lusaka at Kupark Lodge in Chilanga.

According to an internal memorandum dated August 2, 2018 addressed to all councillors and signed by party Secretary General Stephen Katuka, the councilors have been asked to meet their own expenses.

Mr. Katuka has asked the civic leaders to meet their travel, lodging and food expenses and offered to negotiate for rates on their behalf at the lodge in order to reduce the expenses they are to incur during the caucus meeting aimed at finding a lasting solution to the predicament that has befallen the party.

He insisted that it was of great importance that all councillors turned up for the meeting because the meeting would strategise on how to manage party activities including membership retention.

But Mr. Kungo said it was ridiculous for the UPND to summon its councillors across the country to attend a party caucus meeting using their own resources without regard for the challenges they were going through.

“How do you expect councillors from as far as Chavuma in North-Western Province to sponsor themselves for a party function? I think this is not fair,” he said. He added that he was ready to pay for councillors to allow them attend their party meeting in Lusaka.

  5. All you pf fellows are dull, if upnd is dead as you all assume why do you waste your time getting yourself involved in their affairs? No wonder wisdom tells us that common sense is not so common after all… since pf is such a popular thuggish party just enjoy your fruits why concerned your self with a failed party like Upnd? I guess this quotation is too complicated for y’all let me enlighten you.. because you seem to have all to say about upnd to me this only means that you’re fully aware how powerful this HH and this GBM with this upnd ???????????????????????????????????????????????? suckers..

  6. Kungo is an exhibitionist. UPND asked councilors to travel and book rooms, promised to reimburse the councilors. They did that because of logistics in sending money or tickets to people they are not sure about personal and family situations. Also in terms of sending money, they don’t have flights to arrange from those areas, so they want them to foot fare bills and reimburse accordingly. Think PF cadres. In your case only Lungu travels for his allowances and women in those places. Thick heads

  7. We have all head how the panama money has run out, now we are seeing it in broad day light. How will they survive 2021. And beyond? Because this opposition status will still continue. Even the proceeds from selling gbm’s Arizona trucks has gone. The begining of the end

  8. PF kwena trying to buy off UPND Councillors with our money, no wonder IMF doesn’t want to give you the money as it will end up in your pockets. We have heard how you misappropriated funds, medicines and more just like your leader. PF carders mind your business and leave UPND alone. if you were able to direct all this advice and criticism to your party we would be in great shape. A failure party like yours is causing people to lose faith in the electoral system as evident by voter apathy in the recent mayoral elections

  9. just trying to relate things here,
    is this the way PF was running when they were in opposition say somewhere in 2009,2010,2011?
    was PF showing signs of dying out completely such that people start to perceive things in the party are going bad?
    if not i implore the opposition to prepare well for 2021 or brace for the worst and most painful defeat.
    if this is the way things were, then i urge the Ruling party to start working to the appease the Zambian people of brace for recording the shortest term in power.
