UPND says MPs appointed to Cabinet are ‘unruly horses’

THE UPND says opposition parliamentarians appointed to Cabinet have become ‘unruly horses’ whose loyalties seem to lie with the appointing authority’s party and not the ones on whose ticket they entered parliament.

This is in a matter where the UPND’s deputy secretary general Kuchunga Simusamba has petitioned President Michael Sata’s appointment of members of parliament from the opposition MMD to ministerial positions in the Lusaka High Court.

Simusamba has in this matter sued Attorney General Mumba Malila.

He stated in his affidavit in reply to Malila’s answer to the petition that the UPND was ready to prove how the opposition MMD members of parliament serving in the current government have become unruly and disloyal horses towards their party.
