The Patriotic Front is to commence disciplinary proceedings against its Chongwe Member of Parliament Sylvia Masebo and former Southern Province Minister Daniel Munkombwe.
The two senior PF officials openly endorsed and campaigned for the opposition UPND during the just ended Presidential election.
PF Secretary General Davies Chama has told ZNBC News in an interview that the PF Members defied the party’s rules – an act that clearly shows that they wanted the PF to be tossed out of power.
Mr. Chama said that the senior Party officials should have opted to resign from the PF on moral grounds than openly defy the party’s principles by campaigning for the opposition UPND.
PF Kasama Central Member of Parliament Geoffrey Mwamba had also endorsed and campaigned for UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema.
On Monday 26th January, 2015, President Edgar Lungu warned that he will not tolerate indiscipline in the party especially from senior party officials.
