CHISHIMBA Kambwili is free to rejoin the National Democratic Congress (NDC) but would not be accepted to take up the position of president of the party, Saboi Imboela has said.
Ms Imboela said in an interview that she would welcome Mr Kambwili as an ordinary member of the party if he was to come back because NDC is an inclusive political organisation.
She stated that despite the political differences, Mr Kambwili should feel free to come back but not to take the presidency as there was no provision in the NDC vision, which says that when one comes back they should automatically be president.
“With politics anyone is free to join our party because NDC is free for everyone, it is a party of order and its mandate is to follow the provisions set before it, Mr Kambwili is a free man to join us, he is welcome anytime, our doors are open,’’ she said.
Ms. Imboela stated that Mr Kambwili was now a member of the Patriotic Front and was contesting for the presidency of the former governing party.
“As NDC, we have realised that Mr Kambwili is now PF, we don’t have any plans of him coming back taking the presidency position, but he can be a member,” Ms Imboela said
Ms. Imboela has also urged Zambians who were interested to join the NDC party to be free because it’s a party for everyone.
