The opposition Peoples Party (PP) has suspended its Director of Administration, Reverend Peter Kaleso for indiscipline.
PP Publicity Secretary, Ken Msonda confirmed Kaleso’s suspension on Monday.
”Reverend Peter Kaleso has been suspended as PP Director of Administration with immediate effect,” explained Msonda.
Msonda could not disclose reasons behind Kaleso’s suspension but revealed he has been summoned to appear before the party’s Disciplinary Committee.
”More details about his suspension will emerge once he appears before the Disciplinary Committee,” added Msonda.
Kaleso, however, expressed a surprise when contacted on the issue.
He said was not officially informed of his suspension and that was shocked with how the party handled the issue.
”Nobody from the party has contacted me on the issue. There is no verbal or written communication; am just hearing it from the media,” said Kaleso.
”I was in my office the whole day and nobody, even the Secretary General himself, has contacted me that I have been suspended”.
Kaleso has since dismissed the indiscipline claim, arguing he has never been warned or summoned by the party executive of any wrong doing.
