SACCORD has advised the ruling Patriotic Front to address the reported conflict that has arisen between old or genuine members and new members.

In a statement, SACCORD says it is true that any political party has to be able to absorb new members, but a careful balancing act has to be done between new and old.

It said the perception that somehow new members are getting better treatment than old members has to be looked into by the top leadership of the ruling PF so that there is not unnecessary marginalization of any old members as has been rumoured by the departure of former Commerce Deputy Minister Miles Sampa.

SACCORD has since recommended to all the political parties in the country to put in place mechanisms within their various political parties that will seek to address the interest of new and old members.

It said the creation of enmity between new and old has to be sorted out if as a country we are to strengthen the maturity of our intra-party democracy so that we allow all citizens to be able to enjoy their freedoms of choice peacefully.

Meanwhile, PF youths in Lusaka have dismissed as untrue assertions that President Edgar Lungu is sideling old members of the ruling PF to be part of his government.

The youths have asked skeptics and observers that have conceived these assertions to realize that President Lungu has been building a government of national unity by embracing all tribes of the country.

PF Lusaka province youth information and publicity secretary Stanley Chiumya says President Lungu wants to ensure that the nation remains united under the One Zambia One Nation humanist motto.

Mr. Chiumya notes that having a government of national unity does not however mean that everyone in the party will have to be appointed in government positions.

He has told Qfm News that people that are aggrieved by the decisions President Lungu has made to embrace new members of the party, should realize that there many ways they can benefit from the government of the day other than being appointed in government positions.

And Chiumya has called on party members that are fond of using the media to criticize President Lungu to find betters ways of engaging the President.

He says the State House is a better place where they can engage the Head of State more respectively.


  1. And that Amos Chanda was telling that Ba Chikwanda and Kambwili’s names comes up to be fired. Seriously these PF will never reconcile. There prayers and fasting at Show grounds was worsted. And they want to build a church when they are divided like that.

    • Ba LT who is SACCORD? Are they PF lawyers or what? What’s their concern? Are they not interfering in the internal matters of an organisation?

    • @Nostradamus
      Chizungu, chizungu. Imwe baba you can’t write. All your comments are in kindergarten chizungu. Wow. Kodi muli ba grade 2? Can’t tell between “there” and “their” and can’t construct a sentence. Why bother to blog? Muti sebanya.

  2. Kikik But ba lungu basebanna na mashilu ya ku state house.Bushe does he have advisors or everyone drinks chibuku.Kwena baonaula party yesu ba lungu.

  3. With Jameson held hostage by the blue green & the true green still in the inner circle providing the rope for him to hang himself, this advice is surely falling on deaf ears.
