  • Description

    Recently Michello, Leader of the breakaway PDC Party, announced that his new party would contest all seats in the forthcoming January Elections in Northern Rhodesia..he added that his party had the support of a large group of intellectuals formerly members of both ANC and UNIP and that very adequate funds were available for election needs.

    On Saturday October 5th his henchman, Daniel SIMOLOKA, convened a rally of all PDC supporters on the Copperbelt and it was announced that Job MICHELLO would be the principal speaker.The meeting was convened for 3pm in the MUSHILI Recreation centre of Ndolas Main Location.However, the previous night UNIP got busy and threatened dire consequences to anybody found attending the meeting and such is the power of UNIP intimidation that nobody went anywhere near the PDC meeting place and it was necessary to cancel the meeting..a very great blow to the political aspirations of the new splinter party.Expecting trouble to police turned out and they were the only audience that MWIYA MOOKA to local secretary had as he appealed again and again to the people over a loud speaker system.
