IMG-20160725-WA0003United Party for National Development (UPND) presidential running mate Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba has dismissed as fake a document circulating on social media purporting to be a UPND cabinet and bearing the signature of party secretary general Stephen Katuka.

Mwamba says only his fellow party Vice President Canisuis Banda has been assured of a Ministerial portfolio should UPND form government.

“It is sad to see how some politicians are now resorting to divisive talk as the elections draw closer in an attempt to distract people from the important issues,” Mwamba said in a press release.

“While UPND talks policies and solutions, what we hear back is personal attacks and statements designed to stir up tribal sentiments. We want to reassure the people it is not long now until a UPND government is appointed. It will be an inclusive government that works in the interests of all,” he said.

The former Kasama Central MP further warned the authors of the document that forging another person’s signature is a serious crime.

“It has come to our attention that a fake document authored by our political opponents is being circulated and supposedly sets out several appointments for the incoming UPND government. This is a counterfeit document and the forging of the signature of UPND Secretary General Stephen Katuka is a very serious offence indeed. We urge people to pay no attention to it at all, as it was not authored by any of our team, ” he explained.

“As UPND we are determined to have a strong hard working government that can deliver our 10 Point Plan for Zambia. We are ready to show that we are men and women of action ready to serve the people. We wish to make it clear that no government members have been appointed; only Dr. Canisius Banda’s appointment to Cabinet has been confirmed, as announced by HH himself.” he concluded.
