UPND Cadres Block Mwandi Independent Candidate From Filing In Nomination


United Party for National Development -UPND- carders this afternoon disrupted the Mwandi Parliamentary nominations after they blocked Independent candidate Lisulo Siloba from filing in.

Mr Siloba had earlier applied to stand on the UPND ticket but was not adopted and he opted to stand as an independent.

When Mr Siloba turned up to file in his nomination, he was chased with stones by by irate UPND cadres at Mwandi Basic School the venue of the nominations.

The cadres insisted that Mr Siloba had not resigned from the UPND and told ECZ not to accept his nominations.

Police had a tough time to control the cadres who insisted Mr Siloba should not be allowed to file.

And Police Spokesperson Mwata Katongo has confirmed the development in an interview with ZNBC.

Ms Katongo said as Mr Siloba was running away, he bashed an unidentified female who was rushed to hospital and described her condition as stable.

Earlier, PF candidate Iris Kaingu and UPND’s Sineso Kakoma successfully filed in their nominations.
