Nangweshi ward Councillor in Sioma constituency, Western Province, Sililo Muuka has resigned from his position with immediate effect, under unclear circumstances.

In a letter of resignation dated 29 April 2020 and addressed to the Sioma Council Chairperson, Muuka said that he has been working under difficult conditions which has left him with no choice but to resign so that he can focus on personal advancement.

Muuka was Nangweshi ward Councillor under the UPND ticket.

Meanwhile, there has been a wave of councillors resigning within the party, with some reports pointing out that the ruling Patriotic Front, could be having a hidden hand behind the trend.

Allegations have been going rounds that the PF has had a tendency of threatening and trying to bribe UPND members at various levels, with the aim of unsettling one of the biggest opposition parties in the country, in terms of support base.

Apparently, Muuka’s resignation also come high on the heels of party members discontent in the province following the recent dissolution of the UPND executive committee.

Meanwhile, the disconnected party youths recently called on the party leader Hakainde Hichilema to reverse the dissolution, or else they would destroy the party.

They gave him 48 hours to rescind the move, it’s however, not yet clear if Muuka’s resignation has anything to do with the discontent within some members of the party.
