MMD candidate in Malambo says Vincent Mwale should be disciplined for accepting to decampaign him

MMD candidate in the Malambo parliamentary by-election Zephaniah Kaleya is unhappy with MMD Chipangali Member of Parliament Vincent Mwale being deputy campaign manager for PF candidate, Jack Shuma.
Mr. Kaleya says that Mr. Mwale’s acceptance to become deputy campaign manager for Mr. Shuma is tantamount to de-campaigning MMD.
In a surprising turn of events, Mr. Mwale has been appointed deputy campaign manager for a PF candidate when the former ruling party is also fielding its own candidate.
Mr. Kaleya disclosed that Mr. Mwale had contacted him over the appointment and expressed his reservations considering that the MMD was also contesting the parliamentary by-election.
He says that according to MMD party procedures, Mr. Mwale who is also Youth and Sports minister is supposed to be dismissed from the party.
Mr. Kaleya however, said that it was not up to him to decide on what action should be taken against Mr. Mwale but the MMD national leadership.
Mr. Mwale yesterday confirmed to Breeze News that he was deputy campaign manager for Mr. Shuma following his appointment by President, Edgar Lungu.
