The United Party for National Development UPND has distanced itself from the Miles Sampa PF led faction which assumed presidency of the party.
This follows allegations that the recently convened party convention held at Mulungushi international conference center was financed by state house.
UPND Spokesperson Cronelius Mweetwa has clarified that, the UPND government was not in any way involved in the PF convention, as the convention arised from their own intra party agreements.
Mr. Mweetwa called on the PF not to drag the UPND party into their party wrangles.
The Lusaka High Court has granted an injunction to the Patriotic Front against expelled member Miles Sampa.
The Court restrained Mr. Sampa to stop masquerading as a member of the Patriotic Front or as a leader of the Patriotic Front.
In an exparter order, the Court restrained Mr. Sampa from holding himself as a member of the Patriotic Front or leader of the Party.
Following the suspension of Sampa, he proceeded to hold the so-called Extra-Ordinary Conference against the provisions of the Party Constitution.
The party has since expelled Sampa.
The Party has requested that the Speaker of National Assembly declare the Matero Seat vacant immediately.
