Ruling United Party for National Development (UPND) founding member, Lovemore Kanyama, has pledged to help dismantle the divisions which have emerged within the party in Siavonga District and bring unity among the members.
The former Siavonga District Commissioner said this in an interview with Journalists at the Bangande Lwiinde ceremony for the people of Chief Simamba of Siavonga district on Saturday.
When asked how he was going to do it, Kanyama said that he would encourage all the various interests to a round table meeting so as to end the disunity within the party.
He further said that there was no permanent enemy in politics, hence the need for leaders to always treat members equal.
“I want to appeal to the UPND local leadership to always embrace and treat all members equally and avoid applying favoritism on job opportunities,” Kanyama insisted.
He ruled out himself from contesting as Siavonga or Chirundu Member of Parliament, stating that he had no such ambitions despite receiving calls from the UPND members.
Meanwhile, Kanyama flcalled on government, through the Food Reserve Agency (FRA) to provide food, expescially maize for sale to the rural communities of both Chirundu and Siavonga.
“The communities in Chirundu and Siavonga districts must also be alert on individuals buying cheap mealie meal in ShopRite and later selling them on high prices in the villages and that those trying to exploit the people of Siavonga and Chirundu should be punished,” he said.
Kanyama also commended Chief Simamba for the warm and friendly reception given to him and many others who came from within and outside the country for the traditional ceremony which was held last week in Siavonga district.
