APP congress slated for February

23 January 2019 | Politics

The All People's Party (APP) is expected to hold an elective congress in the first week of February, during which delegates will elect a new party leadership.

This is according to its secretary-general Vincent Kanyetu, who said the congress had initially been slated for November last year, but could not take place due to logistical issues at its branches.

“The congress will be held during the first week of February, which is what has been agreed upon,” said Kanyetu.

He said further that it could not take place in November because leadership nominations had not been received from the various APP structures.

“Some regions were not finished with their assignments. Every region has its own problems,” said Kanyetu.

Despite the delay, he was confident that the APP would conclude its congress next month. This, he said, would also allow the party to turn its attention to campaigning for the upcoming general elections, which will be held later this year.

“We will make sure that everything will go to plan,” said Kanyetu. The party, according to him, was also in the process of finalising a disciplinary hearing into allegations of insubordination against three of its youth leaders.

Kanyetu in July last year suspended youth league president Sebastian Ntjamba, as well youth wing members Kaghugongo Vumbu Shingereshu and Hendrick Haikera. The trio were suspended with immediate effect from all party structures.

Providing an update, Kanyetu was confident the disciplinary hearing will be completed by the end of this month.

“The matter is before the disciplinary committee. They have been called in for a hearing and we are looking at speeding up the process before the end of this month,” said Kanyetu.

According to him, the trio were informed what charges they were facing.
