Some top party officials have been calling media houses directing them not to cover any official commenting on Mwamba’s resignation.
“I had called one media house to issue a statement on how we youths are being used by our political party leaders only to be told that I am not allowed to issue a statement as directed by our provincial leadership,” said a source familiar with the development.
The youth leader in one of the constituencies in Kitwe said the move smacked of dictatorship.
The National Management Committee of the UPND on Friday unanimously voted to suspend its vice president Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba for alleged misconduct.
