Frustrations force UPND councillor out of party

Feature Politics Frustrations force UPND councillor out of party

A United Party for National Development (UPND) ward councilor in Chilubi constituency has with immediate resigned from his position.

Bulilo Ward Councilor, Albert Lwanga, has also resigned from the opposition political party to join the ruling Patriotic Front (PF).

In his resignation letter addressed to Chilubi District Council Chairperson and made available to ZANIS in Kasama yesterday, Mr. Lwanga said he has been compelled to resign due to frustrations from his party.

He further accused the opposition UPND of lacking a development agenda and support to its civic leaders.

And when contacted for a comment, UPND Northern Province chairperson Nathan Ilunga said the party leadership was not aware or Mr. Lwanga’s resignation.

Meanwhile, Chilubi Member of Parliament Mulenga Fube said the resignation of the Bulilo ward councillor was an indication that the PF has continued to attract more members.

Mr. Fube said President Edgar Lungu’s visionary leadership and pro-poor policies make the PF a party of choice for many Zambians.

  1. In this time of coronavirus busy buying councillors, and these unprincipled councillors need to be punished. Selling their souls for a few coins that won’t last them a lifetime. We don’t have the money for uneccesary elections. Please ba PF we are tired of you buying these poverty stricken unprincipled councillors who cannot say no to a bribe

  2. Do I even need to say anything? I have been saying this for years. The upnd lack leadership and direction. You can’t base your campaign on criticising the ruling party everyday and think you are going to win an election. It’s a pity its taken this man over 4 election losses to realise that upnd are dormant failures. Watch now how no upnd cadre will comment here. After all I have been receiving calls from top upnd members seeking to join pf. Kz

  5. KZ you of all people know that almost all the elections you win are done through bribing the electorate, and you know that the electorate do not believe in PF but are driven by bribes in order to vote, and even with those bribes you even go as far as using do as I say, so why can you not accept the fact that PF is now a focil of its former self and is doomed as at now, in fact you have greatly contributed to PF’s failures by your unprofessional behaviour

  6. Samlindo that is why you lose elections. You insult zambian voters intelligence by assuming they are so dull to fall for bribery in making an important 5 year decision. You are your own waste enemy. You had 14 days to bring evidence of election impropriety before the courts but as usual like a village chicken you failed and chickened out. Accept that the problem lies with your mr know it all economic text book of a president. The chap is unsellable like selling sand in the Sahara desert

  8. It is called a human error and I am sure anyone with an iota of sense will know that was meant to read upnd maggots. I stand corrected and thanks for bringing that to my attention. Remember if the pf end up like upnd I will also call them maggots

  9. How does this put on my table. How does the resignation of a poor councilor in Chilubi reverse inflation which has gone to 14%(though real one is about 40%), How does it reverse the sprinting kwacha going to K20 to a dollar, How does it reverse the depleting reserves which Margaret Mwanakatwe told us we were using reserves to service debts and indeed how does it reverse the escalating mealie meal prices. This is not a story as it has no consequence on the country.

  10. UPND is popular on Facebook especially in Lusaka where they one individual open several accounts just to post rubbishy.They spent 24hrs doing nothing but sending elements of bitterness and hatred.
    Even in southern province PF has worked very well with grassroots organizations. Almost All tradition rulers and clergymen have been approached by the PF government and engaged with them on several developmental issues affecting their subjects.More especially in PF strongholds.
    Next year I believe that PF will win again.
