Wynter Kabimba is behind the formation of parallel structures in PF-Musonda
A FORMER Patriotic Front (PF) official in Lusaka has supported Mandevu Member of Parliament (MP) Kean Kapata in calling for disciplinary action against PF Secretary General Wynter Kabimba for allegedly forming parallel structures and bringing the name of the party into disrepute.
Wellington Musonda who is former PF Lusaka District, information and publicity secretary accused Mr Kabimba of allegedly being behind the formation of parallel structures in the party to gain support to succeed President Michael Sata.
He said Mr Kabimba’s orchestrated structures had sparked confusion in the party. He backed calls to discipline Mr Kabimba over his alleged misconduct in the recent past weeks.
Mr Musonda said Ms Kapata was right to voice concerns and call for action against Mr Kabimba.
“Hon Jean Kapata is very right for her to demand that Wynter Kabimba be disciplined,” he said in a statement in Lusaka yesterday.
Ms Kapata who is also member of the party Central Committee had so far written two letters demanding disciplinary action against Mr Kabimba. Mr Musonda said the PF Secretary General should face disciplinary action over allegations of forming the parallel structures.
“Mr Kabimba is a Cabinet Minister and on oath who is supposed to keep oath on all the issues. He is accusing his fellow ministers to be corrupt just because he is in problems with the majority party members,” he said.
He said Mr Kabimba was on record having accused his fellow Ministers and some members of the PF of being tribal because of differences on party matters.
He said Mr Kabimba, who is Justice Minister, also accused of Defence Minister, Geoffrey Mwamba of plans to take over the presidency from President Michael Sata.
He said the sentiments had caused tension in the party and that members were now fighting among each other.
“Today Mr Kabimba has turned on Information and Broadcasting Services Permanent Secretary, Emmanuel Mwamba. Fighting Mr Mwamba for what? Mr Kabimba now has more enemies, than friends,” he said.
He appealed to PF Central Committee Disciplinary chairperson, Edgar Lungu who is Home Affairs Minister to take action on Mr Kabimba.
