Kaoma Town Council Chairperson, Bindundu Mutti

Kaoma Town Council Chairperson, Bindundu Mutti has resigned from the United Party for National Development UPND following a suspension by Party President Mr Hakainde Hichilema for attending a State Function.

Speaking to Journalists at Chrismar Hotel in Lusaka yesterday afternoon, Mutti said he had served the opposition party with diligence and humility since joining them in 2012 but that he was no longer ready to work with people who are bent on mistreating people that work for them with impunity.

“Fellow Zambians, there comes a time in everyone’s life to make a decision for a better tomorrow.”

“I have been a member of the UPND since 2012 and have executed my duties diligently. My contribution to the UPND is unquestionable. However, lately, the behaviour of the party leadership has left me baffled,” he lamented.

Muthi revealed that ever since attending the Pass out Parade for the Zambia Correctional Service and Commissioning of Nyangu rural health centre which was officiated by President Lungu, he had recieved the most unfair treatment from the UPND which had shocked him because he was obliged to attend the State Function as President Lungu is President for all Zambians.

“I find it strange for UPND leadership to want to punish me for such an undertaking. Enough is enough. I have persevered for a long time but I feel it is now time to move on. One would wonder why all regions excerpt Southern and Central Provinces have Council Chairpersons, Councillors and MPs being punished for attending state functions. ”

“I find this segregative attitude to be strange. Therefore, I want to tell the nation that I have today, Monday, the 22nd day of July 2019, resigned from the UPND as a member and also as Council Chairperson for Kaoma Town Council,” he said.

He announced that he was joining the ruling Patriot Front with immediate effect because President Lungu had proved to be an all inclusive, progressive and just leader who means well for Zambia, Western Province and Kaoma in particular.

    • GBM didn’t lie then. This HH is no good as he is full of jealous and envy. What’s wrong with working with community and ECL?

    • A collapsing party. Even this Lozi man is pointing to the tonga aspect of this party. People from north western & western are just being used. Important ones are Tongas, the rest are frustrated or kicked out

    • HH should suspend or expel himself from UPND.

      Because its fine for him to go to State House and have secret meetings with Lungu. When others from UPND go their to exercise duty, it becomes a problem him.

      ++ HH is imposing stagnation in southern province by instructing his MP’s to avoid working with the government to bring development.

      ++ WE WANT SOUTHERN PROVINCE TO BENEFIT FROM DEVELOPMENT.

      HH is a control freak, dictator, autocratic, selfish. He sees himself as the most important person in Zambia.

      The worst enemy to HH is HH himself.

    • Weak soldier resigns, instead of resigning in Kaoma, he went all the way to Chrisma Hotel. $50,000 PF money for a press conference. He joins once upon a time GBM.
      HH is constant, he fires those unprincipled ministers in waiting.

    • He just reinforces why he was treated that way because if it was unfair I dont think he would have swiftly changed political parties just like that and joined PF. More flights to North Western Province for Lazy Lungu in the coming months

  2. This is where HH takes his patronage to another level.Why suspend an elected public official for attending a public and/or state function? The way I hate patronage, some political parties are certainly a no go area.

  4. UPND is a cursed party and the worst opposition party to have been born because it’s a cult party…The leaders of the three mother church bodies have eyes but cannot see themselves as they preach to us….

  5. Ok this system of stopping chaps from attending state functions I do not support. HH has to change his stance on this.

  6. And Katuka is saying that Lungu and PF are most unpopular while his members are abandoning UPND because of poor leadership qualities.
    HH and his leadership team are too bitter and hatred is at their grand scale.THIS ALONE IS THE GREATEST WEAKNESS.
    He has failed to exhibit desired leadership qualities to attract people from the grassroots.Even 2021 UPND will be handled in another big defeat and probably it will be the end of HH ‘s political dreams.

    • @Mr. P,
      The people that have failed is not HH or UPND but the Zambian people who have themselves failed to distinguish between right or wrong. Honestly how can one resign just like that and quickly join the ruling PF. Did this guy ever believe in the UPND vision…?? I doubt it very much. Anyways UPND and HH do not need people like him who are hell bent to please plot 1 and forsake the party. Shame on you.

  7. IT SEEMS LIKE TONGAS ARE THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT WILL REMAIN IN UPND.
    VERY FRUSTRATING INDEED FOR UPND.
    WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH THIS PARTY KANSHI MWE BANTU.
    HOW ARE THEY GOING TO WIN SUPPORT FROM PEOPLE WITH THIS BEHAVIOR FROM HH.
    SO MANY PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO JOIN UPND BUT THE LEADERSHIP HAS FAILED.
    PF WILL WIN 2021 ELECTIONS NOT THAT LUNGU IS A GOOD LEADER BUT BECAUSE OF LACK OF FORESIGHT BY THE OPPOSITION ESPECIALLY UPND.

  9. Chishimba Kambwili will be more like Mwanawasa with a new deal government, so you people who are in leadership today please refrain from acts that would make you an enermy of the task force on corruption that will be formed by Kambwili after PF leaves Office in 2026. I say 2026 because in 2021 PF will win again. HH’s time will be after Kambwili in 2031.Kambwili will just rule for one term 2026-2031 then HH. Kambwili will command some seats in Parliament come 2021 and I fear he mighty scope all the Copperbelt seats.

  11. Imagine, to be disciplined and mistreated because you attend a State function in your capacity as a people’s representative where the guest of honor is the Republican President, what does that tell you of such a grouping? HH is a witch, a wolf clothed in sheep’s skin, associate with him at own peril.

  12. Is there no end to the foolishness of one HH and his supporters?
    The upnd livingstone mp rev Howard sikwela was made part of a team of four ministers, finance, tourism, local government and works and supply who were inspecting building projects and cleaning exercise of Livingston in readiness for the world tourism conference. He was suspended by HH for inspecting projects in his own constituency. Sikwela resigned from upnd joined pf. Upnd ended up loosing the Livingston by election.
    Upnd Kafue council chairperson was suspended for attending the keep zambia clean, green and healthy cleaning exercise officiated by president lungu. Thomas zulu resigned from upnd, pf later won the resulting by-election through mr moono.

  13. Even someone who is not a political analyst can see how UPND is nose diving.

    During the late Mazoka’s reign of the once strongest opposition party to MMD, UPND had a national character with a good number of seats in Parliament. The question is has the number of seats increased after the demise of Mozoka or it is decreasing? Politics is about numbers.

    The late Mazoka had two vice presidens namely; Bob Sichinga and Sakwiba Sikota and Secretary General was Patrick Chisanga. After the death of party president, aba Tonga ukwima saying only a Tonga would succeed Mazoka, what happened both vice presidents had to including the secretary. Sakwiba their tribal cousin had to his own party after ukukumona icimfulumfulu in the party.
    As long as this party remains regional and tribal its…

  16. Bitter Hakiende H has once again shown his shallowness. Every time he opens his mouth he puts his foot in it. No statesman qualities simple running a political party albeit via inheritance is not as easy as giving false advise on the sale of national assets. Under 5
