Acting PF President Guy Scott? has relieved PF Secretary General Edgar Lungu of his duties.
In a letter dated November 03 2014 and released to the media, Dr Scott thanked Mr Lungu for the services rendered to the party.
Dr Scott has since appointed Chipili PF Member of Parliament Davies Mwila as the new party Secretary General.
But when reached for a comment, Mr Lungu refused to issue a response over the matter.
Meanwhile, PF has described as malicious a story by an online media on the health of the PF Secretary General Edgar Lungu.
The Zambian Watchdog reported that Mr Lungu was sick and had no presidential ambitions as he wanted to concentrate on his health.
Contrary to the assertions made, the PF Secretary General Hon Edgar Lungu is in good health and is providing leadership to the party at this critical time. The PF Secretary General remains grateful for the overwhelming support coming from the general populace of the party across the Country.
This is contained in a press statement released by PF director for media and publicity Brian Hapunda.
Meanwhile Mr Lungu has urged all PF members to devote their energies and time to mourn the late leader President Michael Sata with dignity and honour.
Mr Lungu had not shown any Presidential ambitions this far and it was unfortunate that certain media houses were putting his name forward for the PF Party Presidency without an affirmative response from him as regards the PF top job.
“After we have mourned and put our great Leader to rest, he will officially make his position known to the party and nation at large. So should this be to all Party members who are harbouring Presidential ambitions,” the statement reads in part.
The story run on online media was a total fabrication of lies and must be discredited with the contempt it deserves.
