Chiliabombwe Patriotic Front Member of Parliament Richard Musukwa has challenged the National Democratic Congress Party (NDC) leadership to disband the party and re-join the Patriotic Front. Speaking when he handed over 200 bicycles to structures in Chilabombwe for Party mobilisation activities, Musukwa said all members of NDC are prodigal sons of the Patriotic Front. He wondered why members in the NDC have continued to give themselves confidence when they know the party has no direction. Musukwa alleged that the leadership in NDC is using bitterness against President Edgar Lungu and that was not helping them win more members from other political parties. He dismissed the NDC leadership as only being motivated by their anti-Edgar Lungu sentiments. Musukwa further added that doors are still open to those willing to join the ruling Patriotic Front and be part of the on-going developmental agenda. Meanwhile, 8 members of the UPND security team defected to join the Patriotic Front and stated that the opposition political party had nothing to offer Zambians.

Eastern Province permanent secretary Chanda Kasolo has threatened to revoke bursaries for students who participated in the riot at Chipata Trades Training Institute on Monday. Kasolo said it was unacceptable for people that were on government bursary to start rioting. “For those that have bursaries and are involved in this riot they will be withdrawn. We have other people who are more deserving,†he said. Kasolo said he was disappointed by the behaviour of the students at the institution. He said that government gave 284 scholarships at the institute this year. Kasolo also said there were some irresponsible students and lecturers who initiated the riot. He said those who took part in the riot would be arrested by police whom he said were on the ground. The students destroyed the administration block, some vehicles and vice principal’s house. Some students said they rioted in the early hours of Monday because they were not happy with the way the vice-principal was demanding for boarding and tuition fees.
