Another UPND Councillor Resigns in North Western Province

Another UPND councillor has resigned in North Western Province further depleting their numbers in the region.

Dengwe Ward Councillor Japhet Kapumba resigned his elective position adding to the growing number of councillors ditching the opposition political party.

Kapumba has crossed over to the ruling Patriotic Front with his decision coming on the back of the resignation of Tumvwanganai Ward councillor Kyapalushi Kapatamoyo recently.

Kapumba in his resignation letter to the Council Secretary has indicated that he has been advised by his electorates to join the ruling party.

He said it is only through working with the government of the day that people in his ward will realise the much needed development.

Kapumba has further hit back at his former political party UPND for allegedly not having a clear agenda to develop the country.

“I write to your office on the subject matter above, with immediate effect I resign from the position of Councillor for UPND Kasempa Constituency, Dengwe Ward,” he said.

“The Community I serve, who voted for me have advised that I resign and join the ruling Patriotic Front to foster development. I feel the UPND and its leadership has no clear agenda for the development of this country hence the need to join the party which has the heart for all Zambians.”

And receiving the defector, Patriotic Front North Western Province Chairman Jackson Kungo said UPND will continue to lose its councillors to the PF because the party does not know how to motivate and look after its people.

He said the UPND will soon remain a shell as more councillors including ordinary members are fast joining the PF which he said has become attractive.

    A true leader give what he or she promised the pipo bcoz developmtal funds is 4 every party elected by the pipo. Upnd policy 4 pipo 2 wait that when they see is a dream and pipo vote 4 them. Upnd has faild show who the develop zambia usin cdf but i hav made lik cdf is pf money yet not. A normal Leader who want his pipo 2 improve has 2 deliever what he or she promise them. North-west province was once hold hostage by promisin them unfulfilld things 2 win them but now are hav see the truth and it is time 2 leave UPND

    As a democractic nation each of us is at liberty to join a political paty of his or her choice. Those who remain in a party ,it is their choice to remain. Do not insult anyone. What do you benefit from those insults your mouth produces? Shame Zambians shame! Some of opposition members always criticize. They don’t tell what should be to correct a mistake they have seen, that is their manifesto. And those criticised should realise the mistake and adjust. When shall we change Zambians?

  30. reginald sibajene

    Museka seka emufuma lilalila. Wait for 2021 . HH is going to wina mark my words . These defections you are seeing is a bad signal dear they just want to get information from your party . This is why the upnd party is always aware of what the pf they are upto on them. The problem of pf cadres is that there is too much ignorance and ilitracy in pf think bane before u open your stinking mouth.

  31. kedrick siame
