THE wrangles in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have taken a new twist with the two factions giving ultimatums to each other over the loss of party documents.
Ms Saboi Imboela who had reported the other faction led by Mr Joseph Akafumba to the police said her group had given the other faction an ultimatum or she would take other forms of action to retrieve the party’s documents.
She said that the group which had the documents was summoned to the police but still refused to hand over the papers which was tantamount to theft.
Ms Imboela said that if the Akafumba camp did not hand over the papers, then the law would take its course because they were given up to Wednesday last week but that they did not comply.
“The police have been told to investigate the matter but I think we will go to court since these guys are trying to be funny and holding on to documents even when they had been suspended,” she said.
However, Mr Akafumba said there was no ultimatum and challenged the police to carry out their investigations to ascertain the duly office holders of the NDC.
Mr Akafumba said the problem with the other faction leader was because she was stubborn and did not want to reason with people.
“How can Saboi claim to be president when her name does not even appear on the list of the office holders at the registrar’s office,” he wondered.
He said that he had even told the police about the whole scenario but was shocked that she was still insisting.
Mr Akafumba said he did not care about the ultimatums and that she was at liberty to take the matter anywhere.
