UPND S.A Chair Resigns

UPND South Africa 2021 chairperson and senior member Bizwell Mutale has resigned from the opposition party with immediate effect.

Mutale, in his resignation letter to UPND president Hakainde Hichilema, stated that he was grateful for the opportunity given to him to serve the party at that level.

“This letter serves to confirm that as of today the 28th July 2019, I wish to tender my letter of resignation as the Chairman of UPND South Africa 2021 Chapter and as the member of the UPND Party. This resignation is with immediate effect,” stated Mutale.

“I would like to thank you Mr. President and the UPND National Executive Committee, for the working relationship that I have had with you all, it was an honor to serve the party under your leadership sir. I wish you the best success in all the current and future Party programs sir.”

Early this year, Mutale made a commitment that the party’s South Africa branch would mobilise vehicles and money for the 2021 election campaigns.

He has also been in the forefront organising party events in South Africa that saw senior leaders such as Secretary General Stephen Katuta in attendance.

Apart from that, he spearheaded the formation of UPND branches in Botswana and USA.

Reasons for his abrupt resignation are yet to be known.

    “ The reasons for his resignation are not known” the Bemba adage goes like this “ Mule ipushe mbwa nge ifwele.” Loosely translated ‘ why do you ask the gender of a dog when it is naked “ bthe reasons for resignations from the PF are pretty much obvious and common across the country. What Hakainde needs to do is, some serious self introspection and change his nature of politics.if he cannot effectively defend the tribal tag but at least do something that resembles love for your country and not destructive politics. By 2021 HH’s house will be wet because rain will be going right through his roof. He does not realise the number of holes that have been punched through his UPND party.

    Thanks for working with us as UPND. Wishing you all the best. The Party is still intact even if you leave. Nonetheless, you are from South Africa and we are Zambia. HH our President, work hard to bring in Leaders who are loyal and honest when serving in your Political Party. Thanks

    zambia itself is becoming a tribal country.tribalism is among the pipo hodn pos i feel hate when i see things ar in our country.zambia is nt 4 tongaz, bembaz, ndc nor pf bt some of ideology in thez parties are basd on tribalism.pf cadres take a look t dis

    • Bwete

      Our current leader is also tribal so everyone commenting on this issue should think before saying any rubbish things ba stupid imwe

  5. SICHIMATA onesmus

    Only God knows bwana .God only has a final in every matter

  6. Angoni

    Actually more resignations are expected as we go close to the 2021 elections from UPND because an under five leader HH has no plan for Zambia.

  7. Edison

    People resign from different organizations daily so this is not anything new or strange. Best of luck in your future endeavours.

  8. Jayalljay

    When a party and its Leadership has no agenda, this is bound to happen. UPND seriously need to change leadership, people with an agenda, people alive to the country’s developmental needs not this one track minded leadership of HH.

  9. COMEDIAN HH

    leave him, infact he was just our vuvuzela in SAUBE to make people be in deep slumber.no problem i have more people who are stil in deep slumber.iwee mufana no problem you Caaa..nt see me

  10. tryme kolwe

    that’s why matured pipo dont comment on thez platforms!zambia will never change to better unless we change ourselves.with this tribalism filled cadres/poor zambian.was hh once a head of state?if not so then,how can you judge the person you never tried?

    • Daniel Banda

      We don’t need to try pilots we employ them when they have the knowledge and skills to fly a plane carrying precious lives.

  11. Dabwitso sayonda

    Its not a strange or new term”resignation”.a lot of people in our daily lives from different organisations resigns,even those serving GOD.I wish you the best of lucky mr HH and the entire upnd party,never lose hope you still got a lot more people who are willing to be united under your leadership.come 2021,we will rejoyce because i believe the lord is in total control

    • DCK

      Resignations especially from the diaspora dont win elections.not even from within.How many people endorsed His Bweziness at some point .He still lost and lamented as he saw his compatriot MCS being sworn in.Resignations happen everywhere wgo knows maybe he was even asked to resign or be fired.Take a chill pill.

  12. Mr Peace

    Be frank and realistic.When there is something wrong don’t pretend all is well.People liked UPND at first without knowing the nature of its leader.Mr HH is full of himself.He only wants things his way.He doesn’t like group work and he doesn’t appreciate.Humbleness is not his portion. Now as a leader one has to listen to other people and use humbleness as it is the strongest weapon.Remember,no one can right a resignation letter saying all bad things except frank talk GBM.

  13. Shi Mumba

    I didnt even know there was a UPND Chairman in RSA, and I have been here for over 24 years. How come we only get to know that there was an opposition party chairman in the day he resigns? This is a joke!!😁😁😁

    • Ew

      What do the under 5 was always going to do in South Africa?

  14. jm

    still u won’t change our mind mr,no matter how many times u resign ll still vote for HH http://www.hhforpresident2021.com

  15. Kkkkk

    No problem, even stones can vote for HH, let all the northerners resign but stones from sp will be raised to vote for him.

  16. Jms

    He is pompous let him go these boys thinks that they are wise enough while they are the most foolish people

    • U

      Insult whoever you wish to insult, that’s the nature of of upnd.

  17. Kwanzaa

    Politics is about numbers but our friends in the upnd it’s opposite, only Tongas will feel welcome in the upnd. Only this tribe will make him win.

  18. Cold

    Yaba, ati HH for 2021, azalila ati bandibeda ba saa

  19. Low low low low

    Thinking of an opposition that will seriously do its part in checks and balances and sell its manfestal like the weather of change of 1991 and 2006

  20. Wilson

    Voting for HH is like throwing my vote in a dust bin or rather the toilet. Why waste my time making a queue for kalusa, perpetual loser instead of finding money for my children soup.

  21. Lisa

    Gbm influence of recruiting some bembas to pf. Tribal as it is, Pf has messed up the economy, deserves no sympathy from many Zambians

  22. VM

    We wish well & Thanx, but don’t live to regret like GBM who has just become a NOBODY

  23. W

    @ Lisa, this world is dynamic, the problem is when you do defend everything that your tribalmate is making. Kindly advise him properly by removing the tribal tag. How many vice presidents has he worked with? Are you telling me that he is the only Mr Right? Think out side the box you people. Is like when a man keeps changing wives by saying this and that one was not good, would you believe that man? He must have a problem himself. Same to HH because you defend him by using the tribal tag, he will never change and will be in opposition for his life time whether you like it or not. Another political party will come and suppass upnd and HH.

  24. Kkkk

    @ VM GBM becoming a nobody? Kkkkkk, wait for 2021. you will regret.

  25. Myselofu

    I have always said UPND died with Mr. Mazoka, great man he was. MHSRIP. Not this power hungry and hateful HH. Alliance breaking because of the under five.

  26. Mr Peace

    Wrongly reported.The man has resigned and has immediately joined the ruling PF.Why hiding the truth kansi.Kulimbikila bonzo ilibe nyama.Wise men are making right decissions.

  27. Lisa

    So many political prostitutes migrating to Pf, the ruling party, just to go and eat with them. No value added by political prostitutes in terms of improving the economy. They have only displaced genuine pf members and now pf is gasping for survival. HH is a very stable visionery & well to do leader who can rule the country honestly.

    • Mapesho

      @Lisa tell your leader to stop recruiting political prostitutes, or else he is a political prostitute recruiter.

      • Dude

        Don’t say you were not warned! In Bemba they say Ichikwaka ba chimwena kuma palanya. Signs are there to show us who will make it to plot 1 in 2021.

  28. Charles

    HHH is a good man UPND is for all people no jealous at oo in UPND you are all welcome Prostitute or not

  29. Kaonde waswamema

    I disagree with you

  30. Honorable Mutande Brian

  31. Alexander

  33. Kkkk

    I don’t know to HH, people are running away to HH, which is unknown any ideas.

  34. O.M

    When you look at most comments, they are not constructive and that is how you know that most people in Zambia do not have constructive ideas. That is one of the reason why cadres are running. You need to think better for your kids and your future families. Stop wasting time sending non constructive ideas you are old enough. Look at how people are suffering in Zambia. Look at price of bag of unga and you are still wasting time. Grow up people

    If I read every comment here I see tribal talk, I see that you people you don’t actually hate HH, but you hate his tribe, what did this tribe done to all of you? am not a Tonga by tribe but what you are doing is wrong, you need to be wise, how can you be commenting such hate speeches that can bring war in this country? Why division as if are not Zambians, you keep so many foreigners here in this country but you don’t talk hate speeches about them, what did Tonga’s done to you all, as for you who are talking hate speeches on this platform, you are great idiots, and yes if it happened that these Tonga’s men slept with sisters or mothers without marrying them, then go and talk your prostitute the ones that allowed these men, go and tell who ever talk you tribal politics talking about other tribes that he is an idiot to his highest level, an incritic fool.

  39. G

    Let people resign and will see who is going to vote for you leader. Because you welcome all the resignation without even knowing the root cause. Yours is to insult those who resign from your Titanic, at the end it will be a shell. You are not recruiting but loosing members and when you lose you complain at atubeda. Fill uko tuleya!
