SUSPENDED United Party For National Development Kafue Council Chairperson Thomas Zulu and Chisakila Ward of Chiawa Area Councillor Comply Siamungala anouncing their defection

Suspended Opposition UPND Kafue council Chairperson Thomas Zulu has ditched the party to join the Patriotic Front -PF-.

Mr. Zulu was last month suspended by the UPND, after he attended the Keep Zambia Clean, Green and Healthy Campaign at which President Edgar Lungu officiated.

The Former UPND Member also defected together with Chisakila Ward Councillor Comply Siamungala.

Speaking during a press briefing in Lusaka, Mr. Zulu said he has decided to leave UPND because he felt he was not properly treated.

Mr. Zulu said as a Civic leader in the district it is his duty to respect the higher authorities and as per African tradition.

Meanwhile, Mr. Siamungala said he has decided to join the Patriotic Front in order to bring development in the area.

And receiving the defectors, PF Media Director Sunday Chanda said joining of the two big UPND officials shows that the PF has a heart of humility and seeks to serve the best interest of the people of Zambia.

Mr. Chanda has advised National Democratic Congress Party Consultant Chishimba Kambwili to stop issuing alarming statement.

    • Sunday Chanda’s bum keeps growing, he uses it to think rather his brains. It is frightening to know that Sunday represents the PF intelligentsia. That is how intellectually bankrupt PF is. A disbarred lawyer who stole from a grieving widow is their leader!

    • If I may add, Sunday’s elder brother McPherson is implicated in the Social Cash Transfer’ scandal. He was dismissed from ZamPost. Social Cash Transfer is money meant for the most vulnerable, orphans, the blind etc. So we can understand Sunday, he grew up in an atmosphere of moral bankruptcy.

    • Politics is a game of numbers. Your sentiments are directed towards personalities with a heart full of hate after defeat. PF, Chanda and ECL are growing numbers. Come 2021, will social media or the masses put hh in plot 1???

    • @Zambian Citizen — Exactly what i always say: People abroad who access information and news about Zambia on social media think Zambia is on fire or something. I have a aunt who recently came from the UK and was telling us she’s actually surprised things in Zambia look normal, calm and peaceful contrary to what she’s being seeing on social media. Same applies to us here, if u are on social media you might think a revolution is coming based off what UPND portrays on the internet. But, things on the ground are totally different

    • Obatala if your relative is a thief can that affect your job prospects? Or does it mean you’re a thief too? Or are you telling us that your family is so clean that there’s not even a single bad egg. Please think before you say anything.

    • Let’s hope they were paid the amounts promised to them.
      Months ago Lungu got annoyed with Davies Mwila, Antonio Mwanza and Sunday Chanda!
      “They collected K200,000 for each Councillor to defect but only paid K20,000.00”
      PF president Edgar Lungu is reportedly annoyed with PF Secretary General, Davies Mwila.
      Lungu released money for Opposition councillors to be bought at the price of K200,000 each plus Educational scholarships.
      But Davies Mwila, Antonio Mwanza and Sunday Chanda spent K20,000.00 on each Councillor and pocketed the rest.
      The Councillors have since defected back to the UPND as they were given paltry amounts.
      “These guys provided a long list of UPND Councillors who they claimed would defect but only two or so councillors actually defected, its a scandal.
      The trio bought…

  2. Upnd, trib.al upnd, what do you stand for kanshi? Cleaning the streets with fellow Zambians is not good? Maybe its okay with fellow trib.esmates? Awe mwe, ati party. Party? Are you crazy? More likely you mean a trib.al clan.

  3. People like Obatala are wasted sperm. Your father should just have masturbated instead of producing you. You have a know it all attitude and that the rest of us don’t know anything.

  4. I saw it coming. Even in advanced countries it’s the duty of the mayor or any other position to welcome the head of whenever he/she visits their town regardless of whether they are opposition or otherwise. It’s like HH never stepped at Unza let alone getting a high qualification. Suppose he had become president and PF had the number of mayors and MPs as of now how was he going to operate if each time he came to town the mayor refused to see him. This utter nonsense and unreasonable bitterness especially coming from someone who’s very highly educated.

  5. UPND makes me wonder if they have intellectuals? Was there anything wrong with the civic leader doing his job? You expected him to just sit in his office when the president was in his territory? Well done Sir for the defections , UPND should learn the hard way its just rubbish that the party which calls it self as the biggest opposition party should behave in such stupid manner!
    Anyway, what can we expect from the likes of Siakalima as the senior Political adviser and the GBMs of this world, total confusion to say the least. UBUKULU BWA NKOKO MASAKO…….PF LIKULU……. Nayaa Inee!

  6. The UPND should start panicking at the levels of the people leaving the party, times are gone when cadres and political affiliate especially those who hold some position were being treated with a whip. Maturity and respect should be at the center of communication, leaders from all political parties must always be encouraged to hold meetings and dialogue over issues that affect the country and their respective wards etc. Just attending such a meeting should not amount to suspension. UPND should wake up and stop harrassing its own members because numbers are important and they will definitely affect their existence.

  7. UPND IS NOT A POLITICAL PARTY BUT A POLITICAL GROUPING.
    THIS POLITICAL GROUPING HAS NO INTELLIGENT PEOPLE TO HELP THEM TO DEFINE IT’S ROLE AS OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTY.
    THEY HAVE TO OFFER CHECKS AND BALANCES AS THE BIGGEST OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTY BUT ALAS THEY BEHAVE AS REBELS.
    SATA MADE ALOT OF SENSE WHILST IN OPPOSITION AND NO WONDER HE WON IN 2011 BUT THIS TRIBAL GROUPING HAS GOT BIG MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB IN 2016 AND I FEAR THAT NO SERIOUS POLITICIAN WILL
    RISK HIS POLITICAL CHANCES TO SUPPORT THEM.
    LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO MULENGA SATA,SAMPA,MUMBI AND GUY SCORT,THEY ALL JOINED HIM IN 2016 AND SEE WHERE THEY ARE NOW.
    HONESTLY CAN YOU SUSPEND A MAYOR FOR WELCOMING THE HEAD OF STATE IN HISOWN TOWN.
    SUPPOSE HH HAD WON THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS IN 2016,WAS HE GOING TO BE ONLY…

    • Now I know why Southern chiefs are meeting the president instead of their MPs and councilors. The elected officials it seems have been instructed not to allow government to implement any development in the province. So the Chiefs now want to deal directly with the government instead.
