The opposition Socialist Party (SP) has suffered a huge blow following the resignation of its Spokesperson, Frank Bwalya.
Bwalya’s resignation comes barely a week after former Patriotic Front (PF) Media Director, Anthonio Mwanza, joined the party.
The former Zambia’s Ambassador to Australia joined the Socialist Party upon returning from serving in that country.
He has, however, not stated the major reasons for his resignation and his next political move.
Bwalya had been one of outspoken members of Socialist Party and a strong critic of the current government led by President Hakainde Hichilema on several economic issues.
“Kindly note that the name of the group has changed. I, Frank Bwalya, remains a possible news source,” he said this after changing the Socialist Party Whatsapp media group on Saturday.
“So if you wish to stay, please do. If you wish to leave, I would regret but respect the decision. Thank you for everything. Love you all,” Bwalya said.
General Secretary and part first vice president, Cosmas Musumali, confirmed the development in short statement posted in the party’s social media handle on Saturday.
“Comrade Frank Bwalya has notified us of his decision to leave the Socialist Party. We thank him for the effort he exerted in building our party,” Musumali posted.
