Mumbi warns media-happy PF members

PHIRI

NANCY SIAME, Lusaka
PATROTIC Front (PF) deputy secretary-general Mumbi Phiri has warned members against issuing statements without authority from the party leadership.
Mrs Phiri said members wishing to express themselves should use right channels of communication instead of rushing to the media.
She said this when she featured on Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC)’s Sunday Interview programme.
“I will not be intimated by anyone. All the PF members who want to issue statements must seek authority from the top leadership because there is need for co-ordination,” Mrs Phiri said.
She also said the PF is growing stronger and invited people to join the ruling party.
Mrs Phiri said politics is about numbers and that she would personally welcome a PF and MMD merger because the former ruling party is progressive.
“Those old members who feel uncomfortable with new members have no confidence in themselves. We should not be jealous of new-comers but we must support them,” Mrs Phiri said.
She said hardworking PF members will not be intimidated by new-comers.
And Mrs Phiri said she does not agree with those saying President Lungu has abandoned late President Sata’s vision.
“The President has not abandoned Mr Sata’s vision. He is just building on it,” Mrs Phiri said.
She pledged to diligently carry out her assignment as deputy general secretary to the best of her ability and that she would not change her character to suit anyone.
