Kambwili with Musenge

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has maintained that will back the UPND in next month’s Katuba parliamentary by-election, contrary to claims by its former secretary general Mwenya Musenge.

Musenge has been quoted by the Daily Nation newspaper as insisting that the NDC will field a candidate in Katuba as it is not part of any alliance.

But NDC media director Emmanuel Malite has advised media houses to stop quoting Musenge, saying the latter has no authority whatsoever to comment on any matters concerning the NDC.

“The National Democratic Congress NDC party will back the opposition Upnd in next months katuba parliamentary by election,” Malite said in a statement today.

“The party further wants to parry assertions by its former Secretary General Mwenya Musenge that NDC is fielding a candidate in the said election.

“We want to restate and urge the media NOT to quote Mr. Musenge.

“Mr. Musenge is at daggers drawn with authorities in the party. Therefore, he has no authority what’s so ever (sic) to comment on any matters pertaining to the NDC.”

Malite says it is unfortunate that Musenge has been issuing uncoordinated statements on the forthcoming parliamentary by-election.

He further advised the Daily Nation newspaper to seek clarity from bonafide party authorities regarding NDC matters

“Thus, the statement issued by Mr. Musenge in the Daily Nation Newspaper on katuba should be ignored forthwith as it is malicious.

“To the Daily Nation News paper, we urge them to seek clarity from bonafide NDC authorities on issues concerning the party.”

Malite has since reaffirmed his party’s commitment to the Opposition Alliance.

“To our alliance partners, we are more than committed to upholding our working relationship with all parties involved.

“We want to restate that we shall work tirelessly with all alliance members to ensure that the UPND retains Katuba.”
