27th September 2022 – UPND SUSPENDS SAUL MWALE CONHILL , PENDING INVESTIGATION
On behalf of the United Party for National Development (UPND) , and on my own behalf, I wish to announce the suspension Saul Mwale Cornhill from the party with immediate effect for allegedly insulting the University of Zambia student populace, including the graduates.
The UPND wishes to distance itself from Mr . Cornhill’s statement circulating on social media.
In view of the foregoing, Mr. Cornhill is not allowed to take part in any party activities or speak on behalf of the party.
It should be noted that the University of Zambia is a flagship of this country, and the highest institution of learning in Zambia.
UNZA is not only ranked number 18 in Africa but is a world class recognised reputable University competing, with international universities.
Thus for anyone to reduce the University to a mere institution is not only disrespectful to government that runs it but Is also an insult to the head of state who is a graduate of the University of Zambia.
On behalf of the party, we sincerely apologise to the University of Zambia students and graduates.
We therefore wish to warn all members of the party to desist from issuing remarks which bring the party and government into disrepute.
Members of the UPND and indeed the public ought to be reminded that the UPND is premised on discipline and the rule of law.
My office will not tolerate indiscipline among the party members.
Hon Batuke Imenda
UPND SECRETARY GENERAL
