The Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) has expelled its Fiera constituency Member of Parliament Patrick Ngoma with immediate effect.
MMD Deputy National Secretary Chembe Nyangu said the opposition MP has expelled its Feira MP for alleged flouting the party constitution.
ZANIS reports that Mr. Nyangu confirmed the development in an interview in Lusaka, today.
He said that the decision follows both findings from an investigation conducted by the party and revelations of disloyalty from Fiera constituency.
Mr. Ngoma has been involved in activities that were de-campaigning the party an action he says shows disloyalty to the party leadership, the MMD Deputy National Secretary said.
He explained that his party’s action is a form of instilling discipline to all party members as some MPs are disregarding the party after acquiring their parliamentary seats using MMD resources.
This comes after MMD president Nevers Mumba yesterday announced that the party was on course to take disciplinary measures on all erring party members.
So far the former ruling party has expelled several big wigs and founder of the party among them being former Tourism minister Cathrine Namugala and MMD National Chairman Major Richard Kachingwe
