Suspended MMD Provincial Chairperson Joseph Chilambwe and Gabriel Namulambe were yesterday caught red handed discussing with a Post newspaper owner Fred M’embe on how to discredit the MMD and the UPND in the forth-coming Mpongwe bye-election.
A source has told the Zambian Watchdog that the newspaper has so far financed the printing of replica MMD and UPND regalia that will be used for fake defections to be presided over by Mr. Chilambwe.
The source said the materials were delivered by a Post courier van to Luanshya and offloaded at a bar owned by Mr. Chilambwe.
The source said it was at the same bar where the meeting took place that was also attended by a Mr. Bulaya former Mpongwe District Commissioner and Joshua Mutisa also former District Commissioner for Kalulushi.
The Post newspaper is expected to carry a very vicious story against MMD and UPND quoting Joseph Chilambe and other defectors.
