Lubinda not eyeing the PF party presidency
Ruling Patriotic Front Chairperson for Local government and Housing Given Lubinda has dismissed reports linking him to individuals jostling for the party Presidency in 2016 if President Michael Sata rules out the possibility of seeking re-election.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Qfm, Mr. Lubinda trashed the assertions stating that he will remain committed to serving Kabwata residents.
Mr. Lubinda who is also Foreign Affairs and tourism minister explained that such speculations lack merit.
He said he has no intentions of challenging for the party presidency stating that his loyalty is to the people in his constituency.
An online publication has singled out Defence Minister Geoffrey Mwamba, popularly known as GBM, PF Secretary General Winter Kabimba, and Foreign Affairs Minister Given Lubinda as those eying the PF presidency following President Sataâ€™s indication that he might not go re-election in 2016.
Meanwhile, Mr. Lubinda has reiterated his government’s commitment to creating employment for the majority youths in the country.
He has since urged the youths in the country to take advantage of the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) which he says is creating employment opportunities in various skills for the young people.
