Confusion in the United National Independence Party (UNIP) has continued with some cadres storming the UNIP Secretariat along Shake Shake Road in Lusaka demanding for the removal of party President Tilyenji Kaunda.

Yesterday UNIP Central Committee announced the expulsion of Beatrice Kayuni as party Women Chairperson and endorsed that Mr. Kaunda stands on the UNIP ticket for the 2016 General Elections.

Later yesterday, UNIP Lusaka Provincial Trustee Stanley Chinhio argued that the former ruling party has no Central Committee stating that the term of the central committee ended in 2005.

UNIP Lusaka Province Information and Publicity Secretary Charles Mwelwa has told QFM News in a telephone interview that some youths stormed the party secretariat demanding for the removal of Mr. Kaunda and his Vice Njekwa Anamela.

Mr. Mwelwa has accused Ms Kayuni of sending the cadres to the unip secretariat to paralyze the operations of the party.

And when contacted for a comment, Ms Kayuni denied sending any group of youths to storm the party secretariat, saying she has no time for such confusions.

ms kayuni maintains that she has not recognized the expulsion announced yesterday by what she has termed as a group of crooks.
