UPND Blames G12 Certificate Clause for Defecting Councillors

The opposition UPND has been lamenting the exodus of councillors with Kasempa District chairman Davison Wahuna saying economic reasons were the major reason.

Wahuna said that the grade 12 certificate requirements had forced the party to adopt councillors who were not loyal to the party.

He said the party shoulders the blame for the mass exodus of its members as most councillors adopted were not based on loyalty but merely on academic qualification.

Wahuna has alleged that Alick Kikwama of Nkenyauna Ward who recently defected to the Patriotic Front was not a popular candidate but won merely because he stood on a popular party.

“Yes, we are worried but I can state from the onset that we did not look at loyalty when adopting some of these candidates in 2016, most of them we focused so much on their academic qualifications because most of our loyal members had no academic qualifications,” he said.

Meanwhile, Patriotic Front North Western Province Chairman Jackson Kungo has lebelled the UPND a feeder political party.

Kungo said because the UPND was now a nursery party in the province, the will continue to poach its members to the ruling party.

He said the executive will work towards finishing the UPND ahead of 2021 elections.

    Should I take it the only consideration at that time was only a G12 certificate? Not even the duration of membership in the party prior to adoption? Not surprising that the party was invaded by opportunitisits.

  12. Self nyokozi

    Ba pf just have yo own people with G12 certificates not getting from other parties. Koswe mumpoto (rat in the pot)
