Members of the Kasama Central Constituency executive committee who has since resigned.

The opposition UPND has suffered a major setback after the resignation of the entire Kasama Central Constituency executive committee.

This comes amidst the wrangles that have engulfed the party in Northern Province.

Among those who have resigned include, the constituency chairperson, Abraham Mulenga and his Information and Publicity Secretary, John Sampa, Vice Youth Chairlady, Doris Chanda.

Others are Buseko Ward Chairperson, Lenard Lombe, Constituency Coordinator, Samuel Kabungo and Youth Chairperson Mathews Musonda.

They said they cannot cling to a party allegedly supporting leaders fueling confusion in the party.

Squabbles in the opposition UPND erupted last week when party officials in Northern Province resolved to remove Mr Ilunga as its provincial chairperson, but later the party Secretary General, Stephen Katuka reversed the move saying Mr Ilunga still remains the provincial chairperson.

But UPND Secretary General, Stephen Katuka has warned officials destabilizing the party at different leadership levels, that the party management will not tolerate such persons to continue to violate the constitution by frustrating the efforts of constitutional office bearers.

In a statement today, Mr Katuka says his office is aware of some officials who are working with the Patriotic Front (PF) to sponsor parallel structures in the UPND.

He charges that disgruntled party officials will be disciplined if they continue to plant a seed of discord in the party.

And Mr Katuka has maintained that the Kasama District Committee, Kasama Central Management Committee, and Lukashya constituency Management Committee has been dissolved with immediate effect.

He has further dispelled social media reports suggesting that UPND Vice president Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba has been suspended.

    • Let them go. Time to flash out bad eggs, bottom line here is hunger. Musenge did the same thing, the entire NDC Secretary General so what’s the fuss now that it’s UPND? PF are so desperate that any weak chap can fall to them because of their stolen money

    • It is ok to resign.
      I stopped resigning, because I don’t have any membership to any political party even though and am in Opposition.

  1. We have been telling GBM that UPND is a party for Tongas and he is just being used for face lifting. Even Kambwili the new found girlfriend will just be used by HH as a means to an end to be gotten rid at a convenient time. These Tr!bals chased away Sakwiba Sikota just because he was not T0nga. What more the GBMs and Kambwilis of this world.

    • The reason the two guys want to join the Upnd is not because they love Zambia, but it’s because they both want to TEACH EDGAR LUNGU A LESSON. Yes things are bad in the country, but the truth is that these guys including HH don’t have a solution to these problems apart from telling us they can make Zambia better.

    • @Ndanje Khakis, It is an fortunate that Politicians are aspiring for Presidency for very wrong reasons. It is either to get rich or teach ECL a lesson. None of them is even selling their manifesto or how well they will run affairs of the Nation, but not over borrowing, being corrupt and adhering to good governance. It is about greed, hate and bitterness. Not the love for their Country.

  3. It’s easy to follow. HH has seen that Kambwili is more ” valuable” than GBM. Just like GBM Kambwili is expendable and as soon as HH sees that he Kambwili is no longer useful he’ll ditch him. He did this to Dr Canisius Banda. Just wait until the Roan Euphoria dies down. In Bemba we say ICOKWANKA BACIMWENA KUMAMPALANYA.

  6. But Kambwili also wants the Presidency more than HH.
    Kambwili become President = Kampyongo and Bowman in Jail, he will spare ECL
    HH becomes President = ECL has to spend atleast a night in jail for wrongly jailing HH

  8. Democracy cannot thrive in an environment of poverty and ignorance. A hungry man will do anything in the world to get food on the table. Even if it means going to in extent of licking other peoples boots. A nation of ignorant people is extremely hard to decide on their destiny. The nation has been left in ignorance so that it becomes easy to manipulate it. A mind that is not well informed is subject to manipulation. An electorate would rather throw his destiny by voting for mediocrity other than meritocracy. A pack of shake shake should not be a basis on which to put someone in power. As long as a nation is left in debilitating poverty and ignorance, nothing tangible will come out of such a nation. These elements need to be eradicated if we are to achieve the best as a nation.

  9. Remember I once said that if HH won the 2016 election, GBM was going to be replaced by simply reporting him to the authorities that he had used forged papers for his nomination filing. People didn’t believe it.

  10. So which party are these UPND defectors joining? Definitely not NDC because Kambwili is in an alliance with Hakainde, the man they are ditching. If NDC supports Hakainde in 2021 and GBM’s UPND breakaway supports PF, then we are stuck with Lungu until 2026. Hakainde was never meant to rule

  19. It’s HH to blame!
    You thought you were clever to sideline old members and bringing in new comers without character to be your running fimo fimo? That is the time we had to write off UPND! As long as HH remains, forget about winning elections except by accident! HH is too power hungry! A dictator, not worth entrusting with state power!

  20. The best scenario is to let CK run his own NDC party and Kalaba also to stand on his own party ticket. GBM can run wherever he wants. He is not a factor.
