A standoff has rocked the opposition United Party for National Development-UPND in Northern Province with its Vice President, Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba popularly known as GBM lifting all the suspensions announced by the Provincial Secretary, Patrick Mwila.
In a phone call made to Mano News last evening, Mr Mwamba rubbished the suspensions saying it is uncalled-for for the party Secretary General, Stephen Katuka working together with some provincial officials to effect the suspensions without informing him claiming that played a critical role in organizing and building the party in the region.
He has since called on all those suspended to ignore the letters saying it is only Mr ILunga who remains suspended.
Yesterday, UPND Northern Province Secretary, Patrick Mwila announced that the party has suspended its Kasama Central, Lukashya and Senga Constituency Chairpersons with immediate effect.
Wrangles have engulfed the opposition UNPD in Northern Province.
