Dr Faustina Banda

The UPND has officially reported UNZA lecturer,Dr Faustin Banda to the police for obtaining money and election materials by falce pretence.

UPND Chairman for Elections Garry Nkombo told journalists after lodging a complaint at Central police that the UPND suspect Dr. Banda connived with some people to remove the party from the ballot box.

According to Nkombo who is also Mazabuka Central MP, Dr. Banda who was due to be the party’s candidate in the Kasenengwa parliamentary election before mysteriously disappearing should account for his behaviour which defranchised the party.

“As the UPND,we have officially reported Dr Faustin Sitima Banda to the police for obraining goods by false pretence.We want him to account for his pretentious action.We are satisfied that his actions do amount to an act of criminality and should be answerable,” he said.

He said as a result of Dr Banda’s action, the party lost not only the time to reorganize but also the opportunity to take party in the Kasenengwa bye election.

The Mazabuka lawmaker added that it now remains with the police to carry out his duty and bring the culprit to book,an action which will deter would be offenders.

The matter was reported to Detective Chief Inspector Mooka.

  1. This chap is a really a digress to the learned in Zambia. He is a very selfish and unprincipled. How does he so callously disenfranchise voters and saboteur democracy for only a few pieces of silver. In opinion he should be blacklisted and never allowed to stand for any public office in future. He is a man who should never be trusted again.

  2. So sad of Dr Banda, he should have allowed interested candidates to contest the seat who were interested in contesting the parley seat.
