Solwezi UPND Member of Parliament, Dawson Kafwaya says he will re-contest his seat on the PF ticket in the August 11 polls.
Mr. Kafwaya says his decision has been motivated by President Edgar Lungu’s inclusive and quality leadership.
He told the media this morning that the people of North Western province are in support of President Lungu and the PF contrary to assertions that the party is unpopular.
Mr. Kafwaya who is also Local Government and Housing Deputy Minister said President Lungu is determined to develop the region despite NOT getting much support in the January 20, 2015 presidential election.
And Mufumbwe PF MP, Stephen Masumba said he will remain loyal to President Lungu and the PF.
Mr. Masumba said it is shocking that some desperate individuals in the UPND are peddling lies that he is planning to join the opposition party.
He said he is confident that President Lungu will win the August 11 election with support from all provinces including the North-Western region.
Mr. Masumba also implored some PF officials at grassroots level to welcome new members in order to strengthen the party.
