Now Kambwili withdraws NDC from Alliance, suspends his Veep and Secretary General

Headlines Now Kambwili withdraws NDC from Alliance, suspends his Veep and Secretary General

Opposition has with immediate effect suspended his Vice President Joseph Akafumba and party secretary general Bridget Atanga.

Dr Kambwili has suspended the two officials including Roan Member of Parliament, Joseph Chishala for going against the party’s resolution not to be part of the UPND alliance.

Speaking during a press conference in Luanshya, Dr Kambwili says Mr Akafumba, Mrs Atatanga and others have been given 10 days in which to exculpate themselves.

“I am not against the alliance but the alliance where we are not respected. We have rejected the 30 resolutions they passed,” he said.

He also announced the decision of the NDC to pull out of the UPND Alliance.

“All members of the NGC that held an illegal press briefing have been suspended pending displinary hearing,” Dr Kambwili said.

He also revealed that the NDC Media Director and his deputy have been replaced.

Dr Kambwili has since appointed Dr Paul Mbulo to act as party secretary general pending disciplinary hearing against Mrs Atanga.

On Friday, Mrs Atanga sued Dr Kambwili in the Lusaka High Court, seeking a declaration and order that the former was properly expelled from the NDC where he served as interim president.

In a statement of claim , Mrs Atanga further sought an order that Dr Kambwili having been properly expelled has no powers to call for any meetings of the NDC.

She also applied for an order of injunction restraining Dr Kambwili from convening any meetings of the NDC.

  1. NDC does not have the slightest chance of forming government but are exaggerating their weight. Any way this is the epilogue for them

  3. That’s a welcome devt to the UPND Family. CK and NDC were doing more harm than good to the HH and UPND Brand. CK is a PF Mole and was going to do more damage to UPND Alliance as we get closer to August 12, 2021 Elections. Just Imagine CK as a Running Mate to HH defecting back to PF one Month b4 Election Day. NDC MP Candidates under the UPND Alliance also defecting to PF? That would have been a disaster for UPND Alliance. Apart from being untrustworthy CK is a Convicted Felon who can be jailed any time so it’s better he goes back to his PF Vomit. HH and UPND Alliance are better of without this Political Prostitute. Good Riddance for bad rubbish.

  4. CK, you’re drinking from your own poison.
    Welcome to the club CK. Sometimes you people should be listening. I wonder why you CK a supposedly mature politician could be behaving so naive.
    Here is the problem.
    If you can solve the puzzle that led to the disintegration of MMD prior to the 2016 polls you will grow a brain. See, the UPNDEAD is evil, they have sworn to destroy any seemingly strong 3rd political party in Zambia and have worked hard to maintain that there be an alliance instead of other opposition groups to increase their chance. They destroyed MMD and now they are destroying NDC from the inside. UPNDEAD has planted informants in Government and all political groupings.

  5. Wow yes CK, you’re drinking from your own poison – you caused this.
    Zambia is a multiparty democracy and not a dual party democracy.
    When the UPNDEAD promised strategy, they meant swallowing all other political parties so they can cement their position to form Government.
    This said, CK you better fight for your party like you have never done before. Utu tubene Atanga and Akafumba are UPNDEAD surrogates.
    Needless to say that we warned you. You can’t honestly dine and form bond with the devil. UPNDEAD wanted to use you and then dump you like a used nappy. They would have annihilated in that same pact. Better still, you could have remained with the winning team seeing that every dog has it’s day.

  6. What are these alliances? Are we under foreign powers that people have to team up to remove them? As party just market yourself instead of looking for reenforcement. You seem not to have an agenda.

  7. Yes! Sure! Right!
    This Thorn, that is a riddle solved.
    I agree with you 100%.
    Iye imwe sure, so all alone the UNPD has been planning this two party system. It better they don’t form Government because the stakes are high. By doing this, it means that they are anti-multipartism. When they get in there, they will work to undermine other political parties.
    Phew. Are we heading to a two party democracy?
    KYC – Know Your Candidates
    ZAMBIANS, you’re hereby forewarned. Let’s discourage alliances and encourage plurality in our democracy. That’s why I hated the 50% + 1. It is a bad clause to plural party democracy. Otherwise when you know, you know.

  8. At this stage, I congratulate Edith and the others who saw this coming.
    I guess, she learned it from UDA.
    HH swiddles his way to the top, like always; mark my words, all the time, man.
    He is gullible.

  9. Honestly I wonder what people have seen in aisha Hichilema. I have tried to look at him in different light but I have failed. I can’t vote for him. Believe me.

  10. The only problem for the HH haters above is that it is PF and lungu alone responsible for the collapsed economy , lungu is even blaming shadows for hiking prices …….

  11. Thorn in the flesh – what a super -duper analysis. I like what you have said ….if (CK) can solve the problem that led to the puzzle that led to the disintegration of MMD…

  12. This political party has been a circus from inception. You had a consultant who was in Government, then he became the president. The executive realised too late that they were dealing with a Leopard. From that time the NDC executive have had no idea which colour of this Leopard was dominant and consequently have been involved in various court cases against this Leopard. This Leopard has gone wild partly because it is a convicted criminal and is not sure where it is going. UPND vice presidency would have given Kambwili more clout to try and fight the criminal conviction but UPND would have been really a joke with a convicted criminal as its Vice President. So what Kanbwili has done is what anyone without hope would do. UPND the only hope for Kambwili has filled the only position that…

  16. PF welcomes home its prodigal son CK to the land of Honey, Eating and Partying. All your legal sins are forgiven. CK pse don’t forget that our current Moto:”Ubomba Mwibala Alya Mwibala”. U have come back in time for 2021 Election Campaigns. Pse don’t forget to pass thru the Reception to collect your “kasaka kandalama” which u will need on your Campaign Trail. Again welcome back home CK. We were missing U!

  17. NDC and Chishimba Kambwili is a creation of PF party. So, CK and NDC can go back to PF as GBM had done. These are ‘Bamusela kwakaba’.

  19. Busy trying to form alliances to loot and enrich themselves Just like PF bandits…Politicians are wicked….am yet to find a honest Politician….all useless and Lungu the so called humble one still wants to cling to power and HH is busy trying dupe and use other opposition parties to help him move into the State House all for his selfish ideas

  20. There’s nothing called democracy…look at what’s happening in the USA how can you have trust in such a process? Right now the so-called Red States are formulating a system that will exclude the poor majority from voting. You are better off with the Kaunda/Unip type of system.

  21. 26 Anonymous… that makes two of us. I stopped voting after the MMD trickery. I will only start voting when a politician comes out in the open Ati: Naine ndefwaya ukulilapo…. not this nonsense of ” I will create 10million jobs, I will reduce the price of mealie meal to twenty kwacha blahs”

  22. Kudos to every hard working blogger who earns a living by genuinely working hard….i salute you….not all these Politicians…just getting hefty salaries,allowances on top of looting….look what they want to do do to lower Zambezi….soon we won’t have any wildlife in Zambia

  23. All those saying UPND is trying to be selfish don’t understand the national constitution, the current constitution can’t allow more two political parties with different names to form govt, whatever name they would have given the alliance UPNDC or south, west, north, etc, as long as the president and his running mate stand on UPND, the other parties of the alliance will be called opposition in parliament under current constitution and only those who stand on the presidents part will be on the right, this is what those you calling selfish are trying to avoid and also to keep in line with the national constitution .

  24. You shall know them by their fruits. How can such a leader be trusted with leading 17 million plus people? And when is NDC holding its convention to select a leaders to field in the upcoming elections. Only 5 months left… yakosa nomba. Ni ku limba. When commenting bane, let’s avoid insults and character assassination. Let’s be professionals. Aug 2021 will expose a lot of fake democrats!

  25. PEOPLE SHOULD START BY FIRST EXPELLING DEMONS THAT ARE INSIDE THEM. WITHOUT THIS INITIAL STEP, THEY CANNOT MEANINGFULLY ASSOCIATE WITH ANYONE!

  26. I’m apolitical but I have made this observation. The #in opposition has been head of his party for almost twenty years. This is indicative enough of what would happen if he managed to get into State House. The guy in State doesn’t want to leave just yet inspite of the opposition to this. Nothing to choose from.

  27. Sure, common sense is not common. If the opposition forms the the Alliance, who should stand as the alliance prior to the elections? Kambwili only have 1 MP and you expert him to be the Alliance President? This have never happened in the history of Alliances worldwide. The debate is he was supposed to be given the running mate position. since it was not given to him he became frustrated.
    Running an opposition political requires a lot of resources. That’s why political parties are formed and three months down the line they disappear. If they don’t disappear they become broke and start dancing to the ruling party for survival and can even go to the extent of attacking the fellow opposition party for a brown envelope. Zambians are deceived politically. We need a political enlightenment.

  28. If you pay attention to Kambwili you will understand why he is suspicious of the alliance.
    An alliance in politics is the coming together of two or more political parties on equal terms.
    In an alliance the first thing is to come up with a name e.g, If Musonda and Mulenga form an alliance the likely possible name would be (Musonda and Mulenga alliance) or just neutral name. This shows equal terms.
    NDC and UPND formed an alliance…and they called it UPND alliance. Does it make sense? Where is NDC? Does it spell equal terms?
