Suspended former Patriotic Front Lusaka Province chairperson Davis Chama has charged that party Secretary General Wynter Kabimba will never be a Presidential candidate on the Patriotic Front ticket, in what appears to be a sustained war of words between the Kabimba and GBM camps.
Mr. Chama has told Qfm News that PF members will not allow the party to be hijacked by people who recently joined the party like Mr. Kabimba and current Lusaka province PF chairperson Geoffrey Chumbwe.
He has categorically stated that PF members will not allow newcomers to destroy the party.
And Mr. Chama has challenged Mr. Kabimba to immediately discipline Mr. Chumbwe for publicly attacking and subjecting a senior member of the cabinet to public ridicule.
He says Mr. Chumbwe has personally attacked Defence Minister Geoffrey Mwamba and that his line of attack is similar to that perpetuated by the PF Secretary General and Justice Minister Wynter Kabimba on his fellow cabinet minister.
Mr. Chama adds that the statement in yesterdays Post Newspaper attributed to Mr. Chumbwe as having said that Mr. Mwamba will never be President of Zambia makes sad reading and is a confirmation of the division being created in the party.
He says he is aware of Mr. Kabimba’s plan to bring divisions and frustrate the founding members of PF and bring in their identified Presidential candidate.
