Former UPND aspiring Kafue Member of Parliament Saboi Imboela says the tribal stigma in the opposition political party has forced her to jump out. Imboela was overlooked for candidacy with the party opting for educationist Mirriam Chonya in the 2016 general elections. The former music sensation better known from her days at the heart of a group dubbed Shatel has blown up after an attempt by rabid UPND cadre Larry Mweetwa to dress her down. Imboela has opened up on what she alleges is the UPND Tonga tribalism that is at the heart of the party structure. Imboela has since joined Chishimba Kambwili’s National Democratic Congress. BELOW IS HER FULL POSTING: I have seen a post by Larry L Mweetwa and let me say that I have been principled enough to have never said anything bad about UPND- and i don’t intend to. UPND has/ had been the only party i had ever known and loved and even when I started to have more enemies inside than outside i still held on. People will love you until they begin to see you as a competitor then you begin to have enemies that you don’t even know about. Let me mention to Larry that I have resisted to say anything bad about UPND because all parties have problems and better to sort out things internally than air out dirty laundry in public. So people like Larry should not force me to speak all the things that I feel are wrong in UPND because I can. All I can advise my dear comrade is that he is Tonga and UPND is his ‘birthright’ so let him stick there because he has the right surname to excel in UPND. For some of us that have to be checked by the name you carry instead of skill, ability and even qualification, have a choice to leave and be wherever we want. When you are a mere member you are okay and loved because you are a voter and adding to the votes, but aspire for anything then you will understand that you are not ‘equal citizens’ in the party and others will always have a tribal advantage due to the way the party is structured. So you have to accept being in UPND as merely a person escorting others to fulfill their God knows what plan, while yours should never even be talked about. Until UPND goes for a Convention and cleans out a few people that feel that the party is theirs by virtue of their tribe it will continue to lose people that are genuinely talented and want the best for the party…. and this is a General post and dare me to publish all names of most party structures even in Lusaka or Kafue and u will see what i mean. No chance for reason when u prioritise tribal affiliation to quality… Even Larry yourself, I have never ever argued with u BUT how u shifted when tribe was at play only God knows. People that accuse UPND of being tribal actaully have no idea just how bad that is and for some of us that have been UPND almost all our lives and hoping that things wil change one day and don’t ever change can actually shade good light on that which can even make the party be seen for what it really is.. So please leave me alone my brother, you have your life and i have mine to live… I am a free and focused person and i will not let small boys get me in a war that will get many injured because I can get there if u want me to. Some of us even went to school to do Political Science so that we learn how to govern our parties and countries properly. I never went to school with a vision of ending up as a carder in some party that wil appreciate you only if ‘the clique’ decide that u r worth appreciating… We have different paths and reasons for following them, so let’s stick to that… Maybe one day I will come back to UPND if I change my name to Saboi Himboela.
