United party for National Development (UPND) Vice-President for Administration and Running Mate Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba has said that UPND Cabinet yet is yet to be appointed and dismissed any document circulating as a fake document authored by our political opponents.
In a statement released to the media this evening, the UPND running mate said that the document circulating is counterfeit and the forging of the signature of UPND Secretary General Stephen Katuka is a very serious offence indeed and urged people to pay no attention to it at all, as it was not authored by any of the UPND team.
Below is the full statement
UPND Cabinet yet to be appointed
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.
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.
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.
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.
