Expulsion Threats Forces L/stone MP To Apologize To UPND For Attending SATA’s Road Launch

UPND Livingstone MP Reverend Howard Sekwila has apologized to the general UPND membership for attending the launch of the Link Zambia 8,000 project without clearance from the party leadership.

Addressing a media briefing at the party Secretariat this morning, Reverend Sekwila said he is apologizing wholeheartedly and hoped that the members of the UPND would find it within their hearts to forgive him.

“I hereby seek your forgiveness, am like a Prodigal son, please forgive me,” Reverend Sekwila said.

He added that he will never again attend a state function without clearance from the party.

Reverend Sekwila also revealed that he would not accept a job from the PF government if offered.

“I was never offered a ministerial job and I would never accept a job in this government even it was offered,” he said.

He said he is still a committed member of the UPND and willing to abide by the party’s rules and regulations.

Reverend Sekwila also denied reports that he was forced to apologize because he was faing expulsion from the party.

And UNPD Mazabuka Central MP Garry Nkombo said that Mr Sikwela did not cross the flow of parliament by attending the launch of the road project.

Asked if Mr Sikwela was threatened with dismissal by the UPND regarding the matter, Mr Nkombo said that the party would not expel any member without letting the due processes to take its course.

“The UPND did not issue any threats to Mr Sikwela but wrote him a cordial letter so that he could explain the circumstances of being at the launch,” he said.

    Ha sekwila, spa epapela bangwila bulime. You’re very childish,you’re not a leader. You went to parliament not to serve those who elected you but just to fatten your pocket.
    People of livingstone never ever vote for this creature, he has no morals and principals. CREATURE.

    Spare me for now, begs randy MP Sikwela

    SPARE me for now, pleaded Livingstone UPND member of parliament Reverend Howard Sikwela whose appeal against his adultery case was thrown out by the High Court.

    Asked to comment on Judge Ernest Mukulwamutiyo’s decision to uphold the magistrate court’s ruling upholding the local court’s guilty verdict and subsequent fine K3.5 million payable in monthly instalments of K100,000 with effect from September 30, 2003 after Hakazinga Habanyama sued him in the local court for having an affair with his wife, Munakasaka Chikuba, Rev Sikwela said he would opt not to say anything at the moment.

    “What exactly do you want from me? I would appreciate if you could spare me for now,” Sikwela said.
    When reminded that the High Court had thrown out his appeal against a lower court’s guilty verdict against him in an adultery suit, Rev Sikwela merely responded: “no, no, I’m not in a position to say anything.”

    According to the judgment dated August 24, 2012, judge Mukulwamutiyo dismissed Rev Sikwela’s appeal, saying it was based on facts proved before it.

    Judge Mukulwamutiyo said there was sufficient proof to show that Rev Sikwela was involved in an adulterous affair while serving as principal at David Livingstone Teachers College of Education of Education (DALICE).

    Rev Sikwela of Brethren in Christ Church was found guilty of sharing love with Chikuba who was married in 1987.

    The court further stated that Chikuba admitted to the existence of an illicit love affair between them in writing.

    Habanyama, who was represented by John Kapepe of MAK Partners, submitted that the fact that Rev Sikwela and his Chikuba shared a guest room No 124 constituted evidence of adultery.

    Judge Mukulwamutiyo in his judgment found that even
    Rev Sikwela had conceded that the evidence given by the complainant, Habanyama, was sufficient for anyone to suspect that there was an adulterous affair between him and Chikuba.

    Rev Sikwela has not indicated whether or not he will appeal against the High Court decision to uphold the judgment.”

  6. isaac   September 26, 2012 at 4:26 pm

    Zambian politics an oposition should not associate or mingle with the ruling party. How will they govorn once they come into power themselves? AM HEARING AND SEEING THIS ONLY HERE IN ZAMBIA. THEY ARE FAILING EVEN TO GIVE AUTENATIVES BUT JUST CRITISIZE. THESE PIPO SHOPULD NOT BE VOTED INTO POWER COZ WE HAVE SEEN THEIR VORACIOUSNESS AND PARSIMONIOUSNESS.

    I wonder how these opposition leaders are going 2 save us if they continue with this attitude.

    I thought they are in those positions 2 do what people voted for them.

    People voted for Bo sitwale to bring development in L/stone and Zambia.

    I’m worried with our opposition political parties.

    Mwanarob, and all who think with your dicks instead of your heads, you complain that all positions are occupied by people from one tribe but your leader HH is busy threatening any Tonga that will accept a PF appointments! You won’t even let your MPs attend government, repeat, GOVERNMENT funtions, not PF functions!! Do you people use your heads when writing on these blogs? Sata appoints Tongas, expel them from your tribal party; When he does not appoint Tongas; you complain!! What planet are you creatures from?

    As if they are kids- apologize, ok, am sorry, am a prodigal child…drama 101 in local politics. For you to survive as politician nikupubako mahala pangono. Filyokotuya
