The UPND has dispeled information circulating on social media suggesting that they have appointed Patriots for Economic Progress Leader Sean Tembo as Vice President for Politics replacing Dr. Canicius Banda .
UPND Secretary General Stephen Katuka said the information is false and malicious as the Vice President for Politics is Dr. Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba, while the vacant position is that of Vice President for administration.
Mr. Katuka said the party has a system guided by the party Constitution through the National Management Committee which handles such matters.
“At no time did the NMC sit to deliberate on such matters. We urge our people to ignore the social media publication”, Mr. Katuka added.
He said the UPND remains open to engage various stakeholders on many issues bordering on liberating citizens from the Patriotic Front’s induced poverty.
