Speaking on the anti-party activities of some members, he said, “As it is, there is a room for discipline within the party constitution, but it must be legally followed. We have set up machinery to investigate the activities of these individuals in their different wards, we will get report from the ward chairmen as how they have been behaving in their wards in the past few years.
He said: “It will be interesting to know that we are so magnanimous enough… some of them have not been associating with the party for the past three years. They threw caution into the wind as they believe that what they are doing is quite right. So we called for the ward chairmen to write report on all of them and the constitution of the party will be used to deal with their different offences as it occurs to us.”
