UPND Takes No-Show Candidate to the Police

The fall out between the UPND and its runaway Kasenengwa candidate Dr Faustin Banda has been completed with the opposition party reporting him to the police.

Dr Banda pulled the rug off his party by not turning up during the nomination day at Chikungu Primary School.

DR FAUSTIN BANDA FACES ARREST

The UPND has officially reported UNZA lecturer, Dr Faustin Banda to the police for obtaining money and election materials by false pretence.

UPND Chairman for Elections Garry Nkombo told journalists after lodging a complaint at Central police that the UPND suspect Dr. Banda connived with some people to remove the party from the ballot box.

According to Mr Nkombo who is also Mazabuka Central MP, Dr. Banda who was due to be the party’s candidate in the Kasenengwa parliamentary election before mysteriously disappearing should account for his behaviour which defranchised the party.

“As the UPND,we have officially reported Dr Faustin Sitima Banda to the police for obraining goods by false pretence.We want him to account for his pretentious action.We are satisfied that his actions do amount to an act of criminality and should be answerable,” he said.

“For reasons unknown, Dr. Banda did not travel to Kasenengwa  where he was scheduled to file his nomination.If Dr. Banda had no intention of deceiving the party, he could have returned the materials to the party and explain the challenges in time,”Mr Nkombo added.

He said as a result of Dr Banda’s action, the party lost not only the time to reorganize but also the opportunity to take party in the Kasenengwa bye election.

 

The Mazabuka lawmaker added that it now remains with the police to carry out his duty and bring the culprit to book,an action which will deter would be offenders.

 

The matter was reported to Detective Chief Inspector Mooka.

    You were warned against going into the peace accords with PF. They have now infiltrated UPND and its youth wing. Soon we are going to see a lot of defections from our party. This is all because of failed leadership . With effect from today , I have resigned from UPND!!!!

Hh is a threat to you, that why you dont want HH .Why do you want hh to be replaced ? The problem with you guys ure scared to much because you are not sleeping every day it’s HH to be replaced. Why can’t you replace Mr lungu because it’s not applicable for him

    There is no case here. Where does it say that if a political party gives money to someone who has promised that they will be their candidate but on the way to the nomination office he changes his mind, then it is a case – receiving money by false pretence? He is your member, he wasn’t pretending, he just had change of mind after receiving campaign materials.

    Dr.Banda is very correct,the police should not even waste there time because the upnd deserve that.This is when they want to use other tribe after the party is seeking.Ba Garry no game police just remove HH and his big Berry friend chi GBM.

    People pray for a strong opposition to provide checks and balances.Woe to the runaway candidate for UPND,so sad that even educated people could fall prey to politics of the stomach,self aggrandizement and poverty, what a shame I stand with you UPND.

    This banda is not even fit to be called doctor. He has no morals and wonder what kind of lectures gives to his students at unza. If he was my lecturer I would even stop attending his lectures. Wasting people’s time and an opportunity to participate in an important election. If he was bought this type or politics are a disaster even pipo behind it all should be ashamed of themselves. Banda must return all what he got from upnd without fail. Though he has been taken to the police I wonder if at all he be arrested and charged accordingly …. Coz the police can not bite a finger that feeds them…
