Assembly for Democracy and Development party ADD has refuted rumors that its northern region committee has defected to other political parties.

This has come a day after ADD vice president in the Northern region responsible for operations Bofomu Nyirenda announced that he had left the party.

Speaking to Radio Islam ADD publicity Secretary Sefdin Sapuwa said “Nyirenda had left the party in his capacity and not the whole northern region committee.”

Sapuwa assured ADD supporters that the party is very strong at grassroots level and soon its president Dr Cassim Chilumpha will embark on a whistle stop tour to eastern and northern regions.
