THE Patriotic Front has suspended its Kabwe district chairman and his secretary because they are suspected to have leaked the video and audio recordings of party Secretary General Davies Mwila’s infamous meeting.
Kabwe district chairman Mulenga Chela and his secretary Bostin Mpende have since received their suspension letters.
When contacted, Chela rubbished the suspension saying it was ridiculous.
“I mean the whole thing is ridiculous to say the least, its ridiculous! That is all I can say,” said Chela.
Meanwhile, Mpende said posterity would judge those behind their suspension.
“You know, I think we are still consulting but you know, I think the people of Kabwe know us, we can’t do such things, I think posterity will judge them, it will judge us, we can’t sink so low, that meeting, there were a lot of people who were there, it was a public meeting, so for him to come and accuse us only God knows,” said Mpende.
On January 16, 2017, Mwila urged PF councilors to share land amongst them before advertising the rest to the public.
Mwila also told PF cadres to take over the running of bus stations saying it was important for a ruling party to assert its strength.
But Mwila received widespread criticism with the opposition and women’s groups calling for his dismissal.
FDD spokesperson Antonio Mwanza lodged in a formal complaint to Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja demanding that Mwila be arrested for making unlawful utterances.
