PF to resolve wrangles, Nevers goes to court

FLASHBACK: Acting President Guy Scott with PF central committee members

STEVEN MVULA, Lusaka
ACTING President Guy Scott says the ruling Patriotic Front has embarked on a path of reconciliation with a faction of the party that has differed with him on the modalities of holding a general conference to elect its president.
This is according to a news item monitored on Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) last evening.
A group of PF leaders has been opposed to the way matters relating to the general conference have been handled, triggering intra-party wrangling.
Dr Scott said the process to lift suspensions of some members of the central committee has reached an advanced stage.
“I will convene a caucus tomorrow [today] at State House where contentious issues relating to the adoption of the PF candidate will be ironed out,” the acting President said.
Dr Scott said the PF has only three days before the general conference, hence the need to unite.
Some of the suspended members of the Central Committee include national chairperson Inonge Wina, Joseph Katema and Willie Nsanda.
Meanwhile, another item monitored on ZNBC states that MMD president Nevers Mumba has taken his party to court for suspending and barring him from contesting the January 20 presidential poll.
Dr Mumba has filed an injunction against his suspension and adoption of former President Rupiah Banda as candidate.
