UPND Suspend Kafue Council Chair for Attending Pres. Lungu’s Keep Zambia Clean Campaign

The opposition UPND has suspended its Kafue District Council Chairperson Thomas Zulu for attending the monthly Keep Zambia Clean and Health Campaign graced by President Edgar Lungu in Kafue.

According to a suspension letter dated, November 7, 2018 signed by District Chairman Clifford Mwaba, Zulu has been handed a three months suspension.

The letter alleges that Zulu had brought the name of the party into disrepute by refusing to apologize for his attendance of the official event.

“This letter is pursuant to the earlier letter to you dated 28th October, 2018 in which the party decided and directed that, you must make a public apology to the party leadership through the electronic and print media for embarrassing the party president and the entire UPND fraternity within 48 hours of receiving the letter,” stated the letter.

“You must immediately apologize in writing to the party president for the embarrassment caused and that letter and that letter of apology must be copied to the Secretary General for the record, the Lusaka UPND provincial secretary and Kafue UPND District secretary.”

The UPND has been losing councillors through defections and may have a heightened phobia each time any of their civic leaders mingle with ruling party officials.

    There’s no credible opposition in this country, which opposition provide checks and balances ? Zero , the problem is that UPND thinks it will take over the pf government by just petty opposing, if u think the cleaning exercise is retrogressive offer the solution to it, rather than suspending a member who attends, if really it’s the party which will bring change let it sell it’s self with a tangible manifestos. Not peddling lies and misleading innocent citizens, like this it shows that he has a hidden agenda ,only known to him and his associates. Quiet alright things may not be OK in this country, but I think the UPND is not the solution.

      This is very disturbing . Does it mean that if at all UPND is voted into office it would segregate people and only look after UPND members. There would never be mingling and working together of the zambian citizenry got the greater good of the nation under UPND leadership ?

    Surely UPND is not an. Alternative. They making politics a dirty career when it is supposed to be progressive through presentation of divergent views that provide alternative solutions. If they can’t be honest now, how??? Remember old habits die hard. That man is a civic leader who should be present at every gathering to do with well being of people but…. PF also can’t be trusted any more, recently we heard about how the top govt. Officials including Minister of lands vehemently disapproved the development of Chinese cemetery in Chongwe ordering them to stop. But what caused their stance after 2 days that they came around and said it is a national tourist attraction centre that they quickly named it TAZARA Memorial park?

    The District Council Chairman ( Mayor ) was voted for by Kafue residents who include non UPND members.He is called a Civic Leader.If UPND does not want their elected Civic Leaders to associate with Government Leaders including the President of this Country,how are they going to develop their areas since UPND does not control Government.Moreover The Kafue Town Chairman requires frequent meetings with The Minister of Local Government who is a PF Minister,is he equally banned from interacting with the Minister?

    This poor Zulu is only a Victim of Tribe.This man was Voted in to office by Kafue Residents not UPND.Once by Virtue of attending the Keep Zambia Clean he was on the Government Programme and also representing the Kafue Residents.This man does not know how Government operates if by mistake he is voted into power of which can not happen .he would just bring his tribesmen and his partymate into Civil Services .please can some teach him that when one is voted into a public offiice he becomes Public property not Party Property.He does not what it means to be voted into an office because he just entered through the back Window. No wonder he behaves like that.Now Zambians understand why cannisius Left.Please Jack Mwimbu and Gary Nkombo help this man and orient him on how Boma Operates and also what it means to be voted into office.because all his Life hes never been voted into office These are Thugs once Voted Into office they ban elections in the country. ZAMBIAN you don’t need a sangoma to tell you that this man is wrong man

    I totally disagree with the stance taken by the UPND. Surely, you don’t compromise on health matters. when there is a pandemic there are no barriers whether PF, UPND, MMD, to mention but a few. my fellow Zambians, let us not sink so low by taking punitive measures over a noble issue. I don’t see anything badin mr zulus attendance unless there’s something else beyond that
