Opposition UPND Women have appealed to Tongas in the PF to resign from the party in protest against tribal sentiments by PF Secretary General Davies Chama.
Mr Chama has refused to apologise to Tongas for stating that they should use their polygamous marriages to have more children who may help them produce a President in the next 100 years.
But UPND Women’s National Chairperson Namakau Kabwiku said in an interview that Mr Chama has insulted all Tongas including those in the PF.
Mrs Kabwiku wondered why Tongas who are members of the PF should continue belonging to a party whose leadership has clearly shown that they are not wanted.
She also appealed to President Edgar Lungu to fire Mr Chama saying keeping him at the helm of the party has the potential to divide the nation.
Mrs Kabwiku also questioned the silence exhibited by President Lungu over Mr Chama’s utterances demeaning the Tongas.
She said all politicians should be speaking messages of unity and love for all citizens adding that there is no tribe which is better than the other.
