Heart­less UPND caned

Daily Nation Newspaper - - HOME NEWS -

And Mr Mumbi has warned against vot­ing for a party that un­der­mined the plight of women and chil­dren. He was re­act­ing to the UPND sen­ti­ments to­wards in­car­cer­ated Keith Mukata’s fam­ily that the party did not have con­di­tions of ser­vice com­pelling it to take care of wives of its for­mer par­lia­men­tar­i­ans. Mr Mumbi re­it­er­ated that the state­ment by UPND was care­less, ir­re­spon­si­ble and proof that the party was heart­less. He charged that the pro­nounce­ment by UPND should be a clear mes­sage to women that sup­port­ing the party was sui­ci­dal and a risk to their own mar­riages. Mr Mumbi also chal­lenged UPND leader, Hakainde Hichilema to dis­as­so­ci­ate him­self from the state­ment is­sued by his sub­or­di­nates if he was a true leader. “If it is true that state­ment is com­ing from Charles Kakoma, I chal­lenge HH to dis­as­so­ci­ate him­self from it if he is not the one who sent him,” he said. Mean­while, Mr Mumbi said that Mr Hichilema should have known that the adop­tion of Char­maine Mu­sonda as the UPND can­di­date for the Chi­langa by- elec­tion was a dou­ble edged sword. He pointed out that the adop­tion of Ms Mu­sonda, who was the ex-con­cu­bine to Mr Mukata and was with him at the time he shoot dead his guard, Na­makambwa Kalilak­wenda would hurt the Mukata fam­ily and also the fam­ily of the de­ceased. He charged that any rea­son­able group­ing could not have adopted a per­son who al­most de­stroyed the mar­riage of one of its se­nior mem­bers.
