FORMER MMD national secretary Katele Kalumba has appealed to PF members to remain united and continue supporting President Lungu and his development agenda.
Dr Kalumba said with everyone’s support, the nation will overcome the economic challenges it is facing.
Speaking in a telephone interview from Chienge yesterday, Dr Kalumba said it is imperative that the PF remains united and keep its nationalistic character.
Dr Kalumba, who once served as Minister of Finance in former President Chiluba’s administration, said PF is a national and non-discriminatory party and it must remain so.
“PF must not fall prey to rumours. Unity is key and the economic challenges this country is facing are solvable with a unity of purpose,” he said.
Dr Kalumba said PF must reject some members’ ambitions to drive a hegemonic agenda because the ruling party embraces everyone from all parts of the country.
“I am aware that there are some people in the PF who are trying to undermine President Lungu and they know that the state is aware of their machinations. But what is key is for the PF members to continue supporting the President even as we head towards elections,” he said.
