Ex-NDC secretary general, Kabwita, abandons party, joins ruling UPND


Charles Kabwita, who recently resigned from his position as National Democratic Congress (NDC) Secretary General has joined the United Party for National Development (UPND).

He was received during a media briefing in Kitwe on Sunday by UPND national youth chairperson Gilbert Liswaniso and Copperbelt youth chairperson Warren Hinyama , among others.

Kabwita claimed that UPND was his party of choice as he had seen poverty reduction-oriented policies being pushed by the country’s President Hakainde Hichilema.

“Mr Hichilema is the only President from all successful governments who has fulfilled the implementation of the free education policy among other promises made during the run up to the 2021 general elections,” he said.

In his keynote address, Liswaniso said the party had a mandate to recruit more members to enable it to have numbers and become stronger.

He said party members should however not feel that those joining were doing so to get their positions while emphasizing that those who would become lazy would be replaced.

Liswaniso took the opportunity to warn truant part members that they would be disciplined as he calls for the need to adhere to party guidelines.

Meanwhile, Hinyama invited party members to embrace those that were joining to grow the party.
