PF Secretary General Wynter Kabimba says the party will be most pleased to have Zambia turn into a one party state.
“If the entire 13 million Zambian supported the PF, we would be more than happy to have the PF as the only political party existing,” Mr. Kabimba said.
Mr. Kabimba however stated that creating a one party state is not the policy of the PF.
“We don’t have a policy towards a one party state, I repeat, the PF has no policy of creating Zambia into a one party state but if the people of Zambia wished for that to happen, we would be more than happy to accommodate them,” he said.
Mr. Kabimba said the PF is a product of a democratic process and believes in a competitive environment.
“We are not scared of competition, we won elections under a highly competitive political environment and our political competitors should not blame us for their diminishing political fortunes.”
Mr. Kabimba was speaking in Lusaka today when he officiated at the launch of the party’s political education course for its members who are being trained in various governance issues.
Mr. Kabimba said the PF believes that empowering its members with knowledge, the party is not only raising the level of political discourse but also the quality of leadership.
He said the programme hopes to produce members and leaders who have deep knowledge and understanding of the party.
The PF Secretary General said the programme hopes to produce politically conscious and astute members and leaders.
