Mwandi MP Michael Kaingu says he does not mind losing the position of MMD vice-presidency but will not resign from the MMD because the people of Mwandi need him as MP.
The truth is that he needs the position of MP because there is money involved, while as MMD vice-president, there is no salary. We doubt if the people of Mwandi really need Kaingu.
The PF compromised Kaingu after discovering that he stole money meant for disabled people when he was minister of Community Development.
When Kaingu was minister in 2008 and 2009, he stole more than K600 million from the Zambia Agency of Persons with Disabilities (ZAPD).
According to investigations carried out by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), Kaingu had ordered ZAPD to be paying rent for his second wife in Kabulonga at a rate of K10 million per month. His second wife was not an employee of ZAPD and had no connection whatsoever with government but this went on for almost the entire period Kaingu was minister. This money was meant for disabled people. But when the PF discovered this abuse of office and theft, they decided to use Kaingu to destabilise MMD by threatening that if he refused, he would be arrested.
Kaingu and his fellow traitors Brian Chituwo, Dora Siliya and Lucky Mulusa have been demoted from their party positions following their treacherous conduct to receive money from the PF to destabilise the MMD.
The MMD NEC which met at Chrismar Hotel in Lusaka Saturday afternoon resolved to drop party Spokesperson Dora Siliya, Vice Presidents Michael Kaingu and Brian Chituwo and NEC member Lucky Mulusa including National Youth Secretary Tobias Kafumukache.
Announcing the resolution by the party National Secretary Muhabi Lungu said the party’s two vice presidents Michael Kaingu and Brian Chituwo as well as three other NEC members Lucky Mulusa, Dora Siliya and Thobais Kafunkache have been stripped of their party positions and will remain in the party as ordinary members.
The NEC also resolved to appoint a party Spokesperson at a later date while the positions of Vice President will remain vacant.
The five senior members had dragged Dr Mumba and then Acting National Secretary Chembe Nyangu to court for allegedly failing to obey a court order not to proceed with a NEC meeting which was elect a new National Secretary.
Judge Eddy Sikazwe however ruled on Friday that the injunction served on Dr Mumba and the NEC restraining them from holding their meeting was irregular as the applicants had not sought leave from court to deliver their injunction on a Sunday.
