Former Movement for Multi Party Democracy (MMD) Northern Province Chairman Griever Sikasote has resigned from his party to join the Patriotic Front.

Mr. Sikasote announced his defection together with hundreds of other MMD members at a public rally addressed by Defence Minister Geoffrey Mwamba at Muzabwera ground in Mpulungu yesterday.

He said the former ruling party is in disarray and has no future in Zambian politics.

Mr. Sikasote claimed that he was ill-treated during his time in the MMD despite contributing greatly to the success of the former ruling
party.

Mr. Sikasote said the PF is anchored on the tenets of democracy as seen from the way it is administering the affairs of the country while
in government.

He congratulated President Michael Sata for winning last year’s presidential elections, adding that he has no doubt that the Head of
State will succeed in developing the nation.

Mr. Sikasote also revealed that the new Government has finally given him his terminal benefits he worked for from ZESCO, which the previous
administration failed to do for 16 years.

And welcoming Mr. Sikasote and hundreds of other defectors to the PF,Defence Minister Geoffrey Mwamba said the ruling party is an all
embracing party with a clear vision for national development.

Mr. Mwamba has declared that the MMD is completely finished in Northern Province and will never bounce back to power again.

He observed that PF has a national character as compared to some opposition parties that only enjoy popularity in certain regions
alone.

He urged Zambians to support President Michael Sata and his administration in order for the country to achieve sustainable development.

Mr. Mwamba said President Sata has a fatherly-heart of looking after every Zambian regardless of their status in society.

He has since urged Zambians to maintain the country’s peace and unity in solidarity of the aspirations of the fore-fathers and mothers who
fought for the country’s independence from colonial rule.

  1. Sikasote is not a factor as compared to likes of William Banda, Mpombo and Mulongoti. Some of these are not politicians. Look SATA who never joined any party after leaving MMD. Sikasote ni nsala fye

  2. People like this man Sikasote are to be watched carefully. What happens in 2016 when pf is voted out which is likely to be the case? 
    Bumuselela kwakaba is what is going on here. Shameless political prostitutes.

    I regret voting for pf in my life-never again

  3. Zedians please learn a lesson from this rubbish, no recycles politicians. Same people enjoying your money from different angles.

  5. It was just a matter of time. Truth of the matter Sikasote was handled shabbily by the RB clique for about two years prior to the ground- breaking 2011 elections. Give him a break.
