The suspensions of Kitwe Mayor Christopher Kang’ombe and former Kitwe District Commissioner Binwell Mpundu from the PF party has been lifted in the spirit of unity of purpose in the Copperbelt Province.
Copperbelt PF Provincial Chairman Nathan Chanda said that in the suspensions of Mr Kang’ombe and Mr Mpundu, there was an amiss in the procedure.
Mr Chanda said even when the case is solid as laid out in the PF party constitution and disciplinary code, the PF as the ruling party has a Constitution and a Disciplinary Code which guide all disciplinary matters involving party members.
“Based on the aforesaid, and remorsefulness shown by Mr Kang’ombe and Mr Mpundu, I have decided to lift the suspension. However, if the Kitwe PF District Executive Committee still feels the duo or any other PF members committed an offense or in the near future warranting disciplinary action, they can charge them following the PF party Constitution and Disciplinary Code,” he said.
The provincial Chairperson has given a serious warning to the trio for taking the matter to the press and social media when as a party have many channels of airing out grievances.
He said that the party on the Copperbelt will work towards promoting unity, love and reconciliation among its membership.
Mr Chanda said he will not condone indiscipline from party members, including those who have launched premature campaigns in constituencies with incumbent PF Members of Parliament, with impunity and total disregard of the PF Central Committee guidance as per the circular signed by the Secretary General Davies Mwila.
