As UPND youths in Western Province we have noticed with much disappointment how the party is losing popularity in this province. This is not only because of developmental programs by the government but also because of a leadership crisis in the party.
We have, for a long time, been neglected by the Party Executive which just sits in Lusaka enjoying themselves and only remembers us when elections approach. We have no support in terms of material, finance and logistics to grow the party in western province. This I believe is the case in other regions of the country as well.
Our President Mr. Hichilema has never sat down with us or visited this place to mobilize the party since the treason aftermath. This has created a sense of demotivation. We are no longer the stronghold we have been all along. The party is weak in the province.
To add salt to this injurious insult, Hon. Gary Nkombo issued a statement attacking Hon. Lungwangwa accusing him of sabotaging the party and funding resignation of our councillors. The councillors have been neglected by the party. Our President doesn’t care for his people.
Mr. Nkombo has been attacking our MPs from Western Province for some time now. He should tell us why he has been agitating fellow leaders to sideline our people and replace them with Tongas in the executive council. We know how Northerners in the party were hounded out.
We also know and remember how Sakwiba Sikota was chased from the party. Hon. Nkombo seems to be silently executing a cleansing exercise to get rid of Lozis in the party and ensure an all Tonga executive is in place. He should tell us if the party is just for Tongas alone.
We, therefore, would like to state that as youths in the Province, our raw force will be felt soon. We delivered Sesheke and can so deliver it to any party we choose. We stand for unity and development. Enough is enough.
