The Harry Kalaba aligned Democratic Party (DP) has officially been de-registered by the Registrar of Societies. Party spokesperson Judith Kabemba has confirmed the development stating that the move taken is illegal and will be challenged in court. The Democratic Party has had the Registrar of Societies on its tail since it announced Kalaba as its Presidential candidate for the 2021 elections. Kabemba alleged that actions of the Registrar of Societies were arbitrary and suspicious as there were no credible grounds to de-register the party. “DP will not be moved or shaken by the political hooliganism and manoeuvres being perpetrated by Chief Registrar of Societies. Instead DP will draw inspiration, courage and determination to soldier on knowing confidently that we are a force to reckon with. The decision taken by Mhende (Chief Registrar of Societies) clearly demonstrates that there is a big hand pushing for this action,” Kabemba said. She has appealed to part members to stay calm as the party will challenge the de-registration in court. “The DP would like to therefore urge its members not to panic but to stay calm and collected as everything is under control. Let it be put on record that the DP will take this  matter to court and our lawyers will explore every possible legal way and  justice will be given because the Registrar of Societies has no reasons whatsoever that warrants the deregistration of the party,†he said. Two weeks ago, the Registrar of Societies had written to the Democratic Party informing them of its intentions to deregister them following a random check at its party Secretariat.

The opposition UPND has been lamenting the exodus of councillors with Kasempa District chairman Davison Wahuna saying economic reasons were the major reason. Wahuna said that the grade 12 certificate requirements had forced the party to adopt councillors who were not loyal to the party. He said the party shoulders the blame for the mass exodus of its members as most councillors adopted were not based on loyalty but merely on academic qualification. Wahuna has alleged that Alick Kikwama of Nkenyauna Ward who recently defected to the Patriotic Front was not a popular candidate but won merely because he stood on a popular party. “Yes, we are worried but I can state from the onset that we did not look at loyalty when adopting some of these candidates in 2016, most of them we focused so much on their academic qualifications because most of our loyal members had no academic qualifications,” he said. Meanwhile, Patriotic Front North Western Province Chairman Jackson Kungo has lebelled the UPND a feeder political party. Kungo said because the UPND was now a nursery party in the province, the will continue to poach its members to the ruling party. He said the executive will work towards finishing the UPND ahead of 2021 elections. The post UPND Blames G12 Certificate Clause for Defecting Councillors appeared first on Zambia Reports.

The opposition United Party for National Development has taken issue with Finance Minister Margaret Mwanakatwe’s recently announced austerity measures in view of the worsening debt situation. UPND chairperson for Labour Percy Chanda said the measures introduced were not in tandem with the alleged extravagance of the PF. Saturday 16th June 2018 PRESS STATEMENT Let’s brace ourselves for hard times ahead due to PF economic incompetence When we warned about the PF leadership and its appetite to borrow money from expensive sources way back in 2011, we were labelled all sorts of derogatory and demeaning names. Our colleagues insisted that they were in a hurry to develop the country using borrowed money while we proposed a more streamlined approach which insured that we spent resources according to what were able to generate as country. What is even worse, is that we now know that most of the borrowed resources especially Eurobonds that were applied in areas such as Zambia Railways, ZESCO, roads and other sectors were basically a conduit for corruption which benefited a minority within the PF leadership. Now on Thursday, the Finance Minister Margaret Mwanakatwe announced further austerity measures almost along the lines of what we proposed years back. But when she was announcing austerity measures such as travel bans, Edgar Lungu was in the air going out of the country for some unannounced visit to Kenya at taxpayers’ expense. Edgar Lungu was in Western Province last weekend where he publicly told the nation that there would be more by-elections, which are costly to the country, as more UPND councillors were being enticed to join the PF. In a democracy, one would have expected that they be encouraged to deliver to their people in their communities than enticing them to defect and create costly by-elections. This process has become synonymous with violence and intimidation against the innocent voting public, a trademark of PF’s elections. With these announced austerity measures, we as ordinary citizens must brace ourselves for hard times ahead and it’s just the beginning. There would be tight liquidity in the economy resulting many people not having a disposable income for spending. This is just the beginning of the economic meltdown which we predicted and sounded a warning a long time ago. Unfortunately, the pinch of Edgar Lungu and his PF leadership economic mismanagement won’t be felt by the few people enjoying the stolen money within the PF government, it’s the common person in the streets and villages who will feel it more. It is now up to us Zambians to find a way to democratically liberate ourselves from this greed and corruption where we are paying the high price.
