UNIP Officials Undermining Tilyenji, Charge Party Youths

KITWE,June 14 - UNIP youths in Kitwe have accused some top officials of undermining Tilyenji Kaunda by allegedly working with renegade party functionaries.

UNIP Kitwe district youth secretary Brian Chishimba made the accusation in Kitwe yesterday and called upon party president, Mr Kaunda, to take pre-emptive measures or he would be caught napping.

Mr Chishimba alleged that some officials were working with the parallel UNIP structures on the Copperbelt whose stronghold was said to be Chingola.

He said the group's organisational and financial strength was way above average and could turn the tables at the next party national convention if not watched carefully.

He alleged that a dissident team was putting in office individuals who would eventually be delegates to the party convention.

He reiterated his call for the party to go for fresh elections so that new office-bearers could be elected and help steer the former ruling party forward.

"We just have to go for elections, otherwise come next year, UNIP won't be in a position to contest any election. We want to have people who will be respected -- and not appointees," Mr Chishimba said.
