Blow for Socialist Party, as Lwangwa district chairperson, Njovu, defects to UPND


The Socialist Party in Lwangwa has suffered a major blow after its district Chairperson, Christopher Njovu, defected to the ruling party on Monday.

This was during a campaign meeting at Mpona village for the Kaunga ward by-election in Lwangwa district.

On hand to receive Njovu were various United Party for National Development (UPND) members who included Obvious Mwaliteteta, the party Chairperson for Lusaka Province.

Others were Sheal Mulyata who is Lusaka Province vice-Chairperson for politics as well as Lusaka Province Minister and UPND Director-General for Media under the President Support Programme, Frank Bwalya.

Others in attendance were the Campaign Manager for the by-election who is also Lusaka Province Youth Chairperson, Anderson Banda.

Bwalya who led the group in welcoming Njovu described President Hakainde Hichilema as a leader with a big heart to embrace all the people willing to work with him in developing Zambia.

“The top leadership of the Socialist Party is heartless and highly dictatorial, Njovu said earlier.

He stated that the good works of President Hichilema could not be ignored in the district citing the maternity wing at Kaunga.

Njovu cited projects such as new teacher’s houses, classroom blocks and water reticulation systems all done using Constituency Development Fund (CDF).

“I want you the people of Luangwa not to remain behind but work with the ruling party since it had proved to have a heart for the district and Zambia as a whole,” he said.
