UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has appointed Magoba Ward Councilor Ms Buumba Malambo as Vice President following Geoffrey Mwamba’s defection to the ruling PF.

Mazabuka Central MP Garry Nkombo has also been appointed Secretary General taking over from Steven Katuka.

Choma Central MP Cornelius Mweetwa has been appointed National Chairperson taking over from Mutale Nalumango.

Wilson Pondamali has been appointed Presidential photographer taking over from Brian Mwiinga.

The changes come after today’s press briefing by Mr. Hichilema.

But Ms Nalumango says she is surprised that all the new office bearers are from Southern Province and appointments are being done without a national convention.



  1. Who on earth advised HH about the appointments he has just made.How is UPND going to wash out the tribal tag some people are tying around its neck.

    I only hope this is fake news

  2. Why should he appoint those do not agree with him , choosing people can be challenging most people fail to make good choices reason why they need some help however it becomes more difficult if you can only think about those you qualify and those you think don’t need you .
    Zambia is a big country with over 18 million people having ten provinces can it be simple yes it can you are a bigot or afraid of the un known or if you are village minded .

  3. Why on earth can our expected President make those appointment’s? Only from southern province?! I feel bad for Zambia…. There is no one worth to take care of it currently, tribalism will one day hurt us for sure
