Kakoma, Moono rejoin UPND

General News Feature General Kakoma, Moono rejoin UPND

Former UPND National Spokesperson Charles Kakoma and Former Chilanga Member of Parliament Cosmas Moono have rejoined the UPND.

Speaking during a press briefing where the UPND Secretary General Batuke Imenda received them, Mr. Kakoma said his decision to rejoin the party is because it is living up to its promises and manifesto.

Mr. Kakoma said even after he left the UPND to join the PF, he failed to fit in because he could not oppose what the UPND stood for as he played a part in the party’s manifesto.

The Former National Spokesperson disclosed that he has joined the party without any conditions attached but merely to work for it and ensure more members are mobilized.

Mr. Kakoma also said the UPND is the right party to lead the country as has been witnessed in the few months they have been in power.

He said Zambians should be patient with the UPND Government as it strives to uplift the lives of the people.

Mr. Kakoma also praised Government for the free education policy, and the creation of employment for the health workers and teachers.

He has since apologized to President Hakainde Hichilema and the UPND for having injured them by betraying the party when they needed his presence.

And, Captain Moono  said he wants to rejoin the party so that he can actively work to recruit more members.

He said the country under the UPND has seen peace and calm because there are no cadres causing trouble.

Meanwhile, Mr. Imenda welcomed Mr. Kakoma and Captain Moono to the party and has since urged members to work with them to grow the party.

Mr Imenda said he understands that people may have issues with the return of the two but they should welcome them and others for the sake of growing the party.

  1. So you are a DOUBLE TRAITOR. First you left the UPND because you though the grass was greener at the PF, but when you noticed that Edgar China Lungu was indeed a horrible president, you decided to come back. Well, if it was me running the UPND, then I would have stuck up my middle finger to you and tell you: NO THANK YOU!

    • Enjoy the cake. You are the people encouraging the looting of the nation. This plunder of our nation by politicians will never stop if people like you encourage politicians to go into office to enjoy the cake. Politicians are supposed to go into office to serve not to enjoy.

  5. “…Mr. Kakoma said even after he left the UPND to join the PF, he failed to fit in because he could not oppose what the UPND stood for as he played a part in the party’s manifesto…”
    Because he didn’t believe the UPND manifesto when he jumped ship?
    Why does he claim he wants to contribute to development but wants to do so by belonging to a political party?
    I blame the UPND for allowing such characters back. Refuse, have some intergrity, let these men who are courageous as snails find their own place in the country.
    Will UPND die if they show some spine and refuse these men?

  6. H.E HH is a forgiving man besides BK is one of his long standing friends send him into foreign services there are no permanent enemies in politics

  7. the replay of being a fool and lacking integrity! Principled leaders stick to their beliefs and strive to promote them thus the architects of capitalism, socialism/communism and the like ideologies! Zambian politicians are just drift wood with no political ideologies integrity and as such leaders keep waffling when it comes to charting national development! @ #1 No Corruption Zambia, indeed a NO THANK YOU should be the appropriate response to “political prostitutes” who disparage “team mates” when “moving on” to another team! Ni ma politicians yanjala regretting expenditures on big bbq’s as they quit! Tiyeni ukooo!!!!!!

  8. African politics amaze me. You can also contribute to the national development from the opposition position. You don’t need to belong to the ruling party for you to be relevant. So if Upnd loses power you will leave to join whichever party will be in office? One major reason we will never develop is because of jumping from tree to tree looking for green leaves.

  10. As he grows older Charles Kakoma loses his political maturity. He needs time to reflect, what does he really want in politics?

  11. Every one is free to join hands with UPND , including lungu…….

    Let’s build this thing called zambia…….

  12. there is need to bring some semblance of normality in politics by openly rejecting such behaviour of crossing from one party to the other…it shows a lack of dignity and patriotism. This should be stopped at all costs by those who persevered to deliver the victory for the party..

  13. AS USUAL, ZAMBIAN POLITICS ON FIRE,,,,,,,,,,,,,WELCOMING A POLITICAL PROSTITUTE (LIHULE). Politics of tudwelepo !

    And this guy, called UPND Secretary General Batuke Imenda, he is INVISIBLE only to be VISIBLE when welcoming mahule, something must be wrong with him.
    I oppose political prostitution, I don’t care which party is involved, its simply wrong. We need party members who are committed to party values and abide by the party’s principles.

  14. He is really not asshamed to say what he is saying? Everyone can see his flip flopping is because he wanted to eat from being in government. If these are the politicians we have God help Zambia because they have come to devour our country and we are helping them. You voters remember Dora Siliya Munkombwe, and their likes. Imagine you wake up at dawn in the morning to cast a vote for such people? We are on the highway to self destructrion.

  15. We are watching all these people closely to see if they will be given any position in the party or any appointment in the civil service no matter how trivial. Not even the lowest of positions at ward level or board member.

  16. THEY HAVE REALISED UPND IS THE FLAVOR OF THE MONTH
    HOPEFULLY THEY DONT GET POSTINGS OR CONTRACTS
    WE WILL BE WATCHING

  17. I blame the UPND for allowing such characters back. Refuse, have some intergrity, let these men who are courageous as snails find their own place in the country.

  18. They can be admitted as ordinary party members but never to be entrusted with responsibility as they lack loyalty….

  19. Charles Kakoma dumps UPND for PF – March 30, 2021
    Immediate past UPND National Spokesman Charles Kakoma has ditched the opposition party to join the ruling PF.
    Addressing a media briefing, Mr Kakoma said he has decided to move to the PF where he will be treated like an asset unlike the UPND which treated him like a liability.
    Mr Kakoma said from now onwards, he will campaign for President Edgar Lungu to be re-elected President in August.
    He said UPND President Hakainde Hichilema was a very bad man whose preoccupation is going to State House.
    Mr Kakoma was recently drafted into the UPND National Management Committee and was one of the longest serving MPs for Zambezi West in North Western Province.
    Mr. Kakoma was received by senior PF leaders among them Steven Kampyongo, Samuel…

  21. Exactly one year ago this man stated that “he has decided to move to the PF where he will be treated like an asset unlike the UPND which treated him like a liability”…the fact they have recieved him says alot about todays politicans no moral fiber whatsoever.

  22. Zambian Citizen – March 30, 2021 At 2:42 pm
    “Paipa pano!! Is the g12 requirements at play here?? But if you look between the lines, North Western has been seriously invaded by PF and might fall to them. Thirdly, this a deadly blow to hh’s confidence and public perception.”

    I wonder what PF cadres will be saying now…really laughable ….dont follow these politicans blindly have princples!!

  23. How U nincompoops can not see that all these chaps were sent mercenaries is really shocking. This was just part of their plan. Period.
