UPND Suffers More Defections

Barely weeks after the opposition UPND claimed a major breakthrough in Chililabombwe their losing parliamentary candidate in the 2016 elections has defected to join the ruling Patriotic Front.

Trudy Ng’andu has announced her defection carrying with her over 140 UPND members to the Patriotic Front.

Ng’andu lost to incumbent Richard Musukwa in the 2016 elections but has joined forces with her former adversary in the PF.

She has cited lack of leadership in the opposition political party among the reasons she has left to join the ruling party.

“We have been like this since the 2016 elections, there is no activity in the party then why should we stay, we can’t only be busy during elections, sure leaders need to outline party activities, I also want to appeal to people in the PF that as we join welcome us, our interest is to help develop this town, government has so far done its best and I want to be part of that agenda,” she said.

Ng’andu has further called for the delimitation of Chililabombwe into two Constituencies.

She said the area is too vast and needed to be divided to allow people appreciate the efforts of government to change the face of Chililabombwe.

“My wish is to see development in this town, I have today decided to leave the UPND because I want to help government in reducing high unemployment among the youth and women,” she said.

And receiving defectors, Chililabombwe Member of Parliament Richard Musukwa encouraged them to feel at home in the ruling party.

Musukwa who is Mines Minister Richard Musukwa further urged PF members to embrace new members by not mocking them.

      Zambia being a Christian Nation, how many of these defectors would say they did not get any thing from those receiving them in return for their dignity as Christians?

    STEALING IS A LITERAL SIN .
    Moses recorded in his second letter of Leviticus 20:16″THOU SHALL NOT STEAL”meaning it is a sin against the lord God, and those support such sinner or sin are also and the enemies of God. Let’s try to weigh and investigate the characters of these two; and see who is worth.

    It seems political ideology is a strange bedfellow of convenience.

  37. Razor

    But aren’t you the one as a losing candidate who was supposed to organize your party so that you win next time. Now you are complaining that there was nothing happening in that party so you have decided to defect. Who was to blame for that stagnation if not yourself.

  38. HH

    Who is remaining now is me to join the ruling party.

  39. Jassy jezzy junior

    Your time has come mummy to join ruling part but again don’t punish the name of upnd,even where you’re going you will find some problems and remember running a problem teku solving. Best wishes mama mwende bwino.

    u cannot run from our part or u have seen anelement of stealing,uwant to win?

    • Aliel

      Divide to kill Goliath he had a testimony about how he kill Lion’s,, Sata to win election him had a testimony that he works before as ministry of Health and he did well, Lungu to win he use a testimony and people see the testimony o him he did not want to stand, but because of testimony he is President of Zambia,, know a question for you opposition party is that; what is your testimony cause point a person who had testimony, so if you don’t have testimony start building your testimony from below as a ward chairman, that is my peace of adverse for you leader who doesn’t have testimony but you what to be president of Zambia,

    Upnd desperation of Leadership will put this country at risk, during PF period in government we hv seen a lot of changes of things in a country, look at Lusaka, is that the way Lusaka used to be? Pf n ECL continue working hard forget about those fake critics, one Zambia one nation.

  50. One zed

    I see why it’s difficult to rule,the quiteness of HH and GBM explains volumes,Late president SATA never stop talking he talked till we all believed him,but social media campaign I think can’t win one an election,face the people and talk to them then you can know where you stand, propaganda can’t work in Zambia I doughty it so very much, Zambians want to see you talk to them and they will have a belonging.we are seeing development every where every day going on why not find a way to convince people believe in you,this development isnt happening in an election period it’s happening when elections are 03yrs away,it explains volumes watch the space 2021 will be something else Kaya ndeloleshafye.

  51. Big Bully

    You can see the quality of these defectors😁. She is already suggesting for the Constituency to be delimited so she can stand a chance to be MP😁😁😁, ….and the reasons for her defection, very laughable. I can see symptoms of Bamushanina u Bwali.

    If Zambia had people who use gray matter to analyse things politically,we would think in line with kangwa Edgar.upnd is a part full of education and education is the only tool to development.this why we cry foul daily on simple issues such as corruption,tribalism,immoral leadership due to lack of use of our mindsets on things that need education.unless kukolwa bakamba ninshi chapwa Ebaume baishiba nsele nsele nama vote twalabapela.what a country! Defecting to pulling part doesn’t mean there is quality leadership but lack of education to judge what will be good for future generation.zambia is not developing because if it’s people who lack education on what is available and thinking for the future generations.i rest my case.
