PRISCILLA MWILA, Lusaka
THE Patriotic Front (PF) says it will crack a whip on all divisive elements that will be found undermining its leadership.
Deputy spokesperson Frank Bwalya says people who engage in activities aimed at undermining the ruling party and its leadership will be dealt with accordingly.
Mr Bwalya says the party will not tolerate indiscipline by any member regardless of their position.
He said this when he featured on Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation live radio programme dubbed ‘The platform’ on Tuesday.
Mr Bwalya said former Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services Chishimba Kambwili and former Copperbelt Minister Mwenya Musenge were served with several warnings before being expelled.
“PF is not the first party in the world to discipline its members and people should stop politicising the decision,” he said.
Mr Bwalya said PF members who are claiming to have been unfairly treated should provide evidence.
He said some people tried to cause infighting in the party but failed because the central committee is equal to the task of ensuring that members remain united.
Mr Bwalya also said PF will continue with its equal distribution of development to different parts of the county.
He said President Lungu’s desire is to give all Zambians a fair share of development, regardless of their location or party affiliation.
“President Lungu is a President for all Zambians and he remains committed to ensuring that Zambians receive development equally,” Mr Bwalya said.
The PF central committee recently expelled Mr Kambwili and Mr Musenge from the party for alleged gross misconduct and bringing the name of the party into ridicule.
