UPND Cancel Copperbelt Intra-party Elections

The Opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) has canceled its intra-party elections on the Copperbelt.

The intra-party elections were scheduled to start today but have been put off as a compliance measure to the Ministry of Health directive to avoid all public gatherings to prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVIC-19).

“As a law abiding party we wish to thank the Zambia Police through the office of Mr. Senkwe the Mufulira District Officer Command who granted us a go ahead to conduct our party primary elections in all the 28 Wards of Mufulira District. We further thank the police for having the courtesy of notifying us in good time the cancellation of the permit due to the reasons given above,” Copperbelt Deputy Information and Publicity Secretary Godfrey Kamangu has disclosed.

He has since appealed to his party membership to remain calm as the party waits for the official lifting of the ban on public gatherings by the Ministry of Health.

    Government shall takeover MADISON group of companies before it is too late. Sikutwa is declaring dividends from insolvent companies, taking out hefty management, IT, Health, Communication and all kind of fees from group companies while all of them are not able to pay creditors, depositors, policyholders, claimants and suppliers.
    Meridien 2 is repeating. It is financial Scam-19 Of Zambia

    Koswe has become blind and has lost some sense of smell. No confusion in Upnd. They do things orderly. Koswe should be worried about the dwindling pf support on the C/B and the rest of Zambia. Pf yaononga dziko

    No wonder why you call yourself koswe, what could we expect from the brain of koswe who could even stay in the toilet. Here, there’s nothing like abiding with the law, but to uphold principles of protection from Covid – 19. No one is the owner of the deadly disease, it’s here for us all and it’s up to us to work in unity to eradicate it . Well done the UPND and the POLICE.

    • Mtombe

      Fellow Zambians, there no need to insult each other as long as we are human, we all have a dark side but it important to concentrate on bright side though without ignoring the dangers of our dark side. Let’s move forward and cross the river of poverty together.

    My dear bro koswe! Covid-19 is a very deadly disease which has claimed thousands of lives and still poking around without considering political inclination.Here are some tips you may need to read for you to avoid contracting this deadly pandemic:
    1.take it seriously and act quickly,
    2.maintain social distancing,
    3.be well informed,
    4.wash your hands with soap regularly.
    5.cover your mouth and nose with a nose bag or respirator always.
    6.avoid hand shakes and touching your face.
    At least if you follow these steps you will be safe.

    this is the only government measure upnd has ever agreed with. How convenient! We know exactly why they have agreed. Viva life president!

    The problem with you UPND is that you are failing to make checks and balances for the ruling party PF. You are running away from your obligations in parliament. On Bill 10 ask the PF to remove what you don’t want if they are refusing tell people of Zambia to help you if it’s genuine.

  17. Seer 1 Africa

    UPND REFUSING SUPPORT BILL 10 IT MEANS THEY DIDN’T WANT TO RULE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE! HH EVERYTHING NEGATIVE EVEN TO FEEDS THIER FAMILY IN SOUTHERN PROVINCE TIME HUNGER NO FEED THEM BILLIONAIRE MUUNYU NGA TALELI CHISHI KULALE ( HH THEY CANN’T RULES THIS COUNTRY. UNLESS CHANGE STRATEGICALLY !!!
