I WILL SPILL THE BEANS IF YOU DROP ME,TAYENGWA THREATENS UPND
UPND Kabwata Parliamentary candidate Andrew Tayengwa has threatened to spill the beans if he will be dropped ahead of fresh nominations after ECZ canceled the by-election after a candidate withdrew from the race and resigned from his political party.
Some party officials within the UPND have revealed that Mr Tayengwa will not be re-adopted and this has angered him alot and he now suspects that some senior members in the party are against him.
“In 2016 I was a leading candidate within the party to be adopted for Kabwata but at the eleventh hour I was sidelined and Mulenga Sata was adopted ahead of me. I accepted this decision and I campaigned for my colleague Sata, unfortunately he lost. In 2021 again I was sidelined and I campaigned for late Hon. Levy Mkandawire and he won. Now it’s time for my colleagues to support me but to my surprise there is a scheme to drop me. This time around I won’t accept any decision to disadvantage me. I will spill the beans if this happens. Let them dare me!” warned Mr. Tayengwa.
According to inside information within the UPND – Mr. Andrew Tayengwa will not be re-adopted because the party has information that he is a weak candidate and very difficult to sell to the voters. The favorites to be adopted by the UPND are now Obvious Mwaliteta and Mutinta Mazoka.
