PF Secretary General Davies Chama has dispelled reports that he has been fired along with Information Minister Chishimba Kambwili.
And Vice President Inonge Wina has today issued the long awaited apology to Tonga speaking people for the disparaging remarks issued by some high ranking PF officials.
Rumours surfaced on social media Friday morning that President Edgar Lungu had fired Mr Chama and Mr Kambwili for apparently bringing his administration into disrepute.
Mr Chama laughed off the reports that he has been fired when asked to comment the reports.
“You are the one telling me now, right now, I am with the President in Kasama for the coronation of Paramount Chitimukulu and I still have my job,” Mr Chama said.
He added, “there is nothing of such. Get it from me, I have seen those things on social media. It is not true.”
And Vice President Inonge Wina told Parliament that it is unfortunate that remarks against one traditional political leader have penetrated the entire Tonga land and were met with some disquiet.
Mrs Wina observed that this matter appears not to have been resolved despite efforts by President Lungu to meet the traditional leaders in Southern Province over the matter.
She hoped that the people of Southern Province will accept her unreserved apology from the bottom of her heart and on behalf of the PF.
She also revealed that the Mr Chama has been disciplined administratively.
