UNITED PARTY FOR NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT KABWATA CONSTITUENCY
PRESS STATEMENT – GREYFORD MONDE HAS NO RIGHT TO SPEAK ON BEHALF OF UPND
The statement attributed to itehzi tehzi member of parliament Greyford monde advising UPND members to replace HH should be dismissed with the contempt it deserves. Mr monde has no right to speak on behalf of the UPND because as far as we are concerned he is no longer a member of the UPND.
Clearly it has been shown that monde is now full time PF and we wonder why he is still clinging on to the UPND. It is surprising that Monde is praising the PF and michael sata that they have brought “unprecedented” development to the country- now the question is which development is monde talking about which we can’t see? We don’t want to talk about the whole country but we challenge monde to point out any developmental project which the pf has done in itehzi tehzi. It is a well known fact that itehzi tehzi is wallowing in extreme poverty and underdevlopment and the situation has worsened under the PF.
There is nothing tangible which monde can show that the pf in itehzi tehzi has done.what economic activity is in itehzi tehzi? How many youths in itehzi tehzi have benefitted from the youth empowerment fund? It is unfortunate that monde has betrayed the people of itehzi tehzi for a few pieces of silver in this manner. Monde should be grateful to HH and the UPND, he was picked from the slums and made MP,, Monde could never have been MP if it was not for HH whom he is insulting today. We further warn monde to desist from further provoking the members of UPND especially the youth as we feel enough is enough. As kabwata constituency we wish to warn monde that we shall organize youths and block him from entering parliament if he doesn’t resign before parley resumes. Let monde resign and join the pf if he thimks sata and pf are popular in itehzi tehzi .
