GOVT SAYS UKA IS AN ILLEGAL ENTITY

Home Affairs and Internal Security Minister Jack Mwiimbu has clarified that the opposition United Kwacha Alliance-UKA is an illegal entity as it is not registered with the registrar of societies.
Addressing the media in Lusaka today, Mr. Mwiimbu has since challenged members of the alliance to produce a certificate of registration saying as far as the government is concerned, the organization does not exist.
Mr. Mwiimbu explains that opposition United Liberal Party-ULP President Sakwiba Sikota whose party is a member of the Alliance on February 13th, 2024 attempted to register the UKA as a pressure group but second attempt decided to register it as a political party.
He says Mr. Sikota was however advised to apply formally but up to now no such application has been made so far adding that another individual identified as Gibson Bwalya attempted to register UKA using another person’s National Registration Card-NRC and on the second attempt forgot to attach a copy of the NRC.
The Home Affairs Minister adds that just like the Alliance cannot take part in any by-elections, it cannot hold any rally as it is an illegal entity which needs to follow the law for it to be recognized.
