THE UPND has made leadership changes at the National Assembly of Zambia, appointing its Luiwa member of parliament Dr Situmbeko Musokotwane as new party whip in Parliament.
Dr Musokotwane takes over from Mazabuka member of parliament Gary Nkombo, who has voluntarily retired as party Whip.
This is according to a statement from party secretary general Stephen Katuka.
“Kabompo member of parliament Hon Ambrose Lufuma has been re-appointed as deputy party Whip while Nalikwanda member of Parliament Professor Geoffrey Lungwangwa continues as UPND Parliamentary Liason Committee Chairman,” Katuka stated.
“The party wishes to thank and commend Hon Nkombo for serving as Whip with honour, diligence and efficiency. The Party would also like to thank Dr Musokotwane for accepting to serve as Whip. We are confident that Dr Musokotwane will serve the party with honour and dignity.”
