The ruling United Party for National Development (UPND) leadership in North Western Province has slapped a six months suspension on it’s Provincial Youth Chairperson, Bruce Kanema, for alleged misconduct.
Kanema handed in his exculpatory letter dated August 10, 2023 to the party Provincial Chairperson, Stafford Mulusa, who acknowledged receipt and effected the 6 months suspension.
In a letter dated August 16, 2023, Mulusa said Kanema’s misconduct involved him collecting money from Solwezi Main Bus Station amounting to K2,700 in the name of the UPND party.
He said Kanema had denied Solwezi Council and the people in the district the much-needed revenue for service delivery and development.
“Your act has been confirmed by Solwezi Council management and the bus inspectors that attended your meeting,” Kanema said.
He added that Kanema was accorded an opportunity to respond in writing to the Provincial disciplinary committee and agreed holding the said meeting and money were discussed.
Mulusa said the disciplinary committee had found him guilty of the act.
“Your act of collecting money in the bus station is a blatant disregard of President Hakainde Hichilema’s directive and has attracted ridicule from the opposition political parties which has dented the UPND party,” he said.
Mulusa instructed Kanema to handover all party materials in his possession to his Provincial Vice Youth Chairman Brian Zuze.
He warned Kanema against using his party position of Provincial youth Chairman henceforth, as doing so would be impersonation.
