IGNORE FAKE LETTERS PURPOSED TO HAVE BEEN WRITTEN BY THE UPND
It has come to our attention that some enemies of the party are busy writing and circulating letters purported to have been written by ourselves regarding our MPs not participating in the address and now another one purporting that the party had a disciplinary hearing with a view to charge Chilanga MP Keith Mukata.
As a matter of fact, no such a letter has ever been written by the the UPND Secretariat under the signature of the Secretary General.
We are a civilised party with our own procedures in dealing with issues.
We call on the Police command to immediately institute investigations on the source of these fake letters which are forged.
Forgery is a serious crime in Zambia and we are ready to cooperate with law enforcement agencies in nabbing and bringing to book whoever is behind these fake letters.
UPND Secretary General
