Kampyongo bans PF military regalia

General News Kampyongo bans PF military regalia

KampyongoThe Patriotic Front (PF) has with immediate effect banned its members from putting on Military attires/uniforms.

PF National Youth Co-ordinator Stephen Kampyongo said PF is a disciplined party and expects its members to abide to the party manifesto and principles.

Mr. Kampyongo who is also Local Government and Housing Minister observed that other non-PF members were using military regalia which has put the name of the ruling party into disrepute.

Speaking to ZANIS in an interview in Chinsali , Mr Kampyongo said party members who would not adhere to the directive risked being disciplined for denting the good image of the ruling party.

He said party cadres in military attires are always connected to fuelling violence hence banning the attire is deemed as appropriate in addressing the problem .

He said PF and republican President Edgar Lungu hates violence as it can breed far reaching negative consequences to the country.

And Mr. Kampyongo has defended the wearing of the safety suit popularly known as “overall” by ruling party youths during political rallies.

He said the overalls are ‘youth-friendly’ and harmless.

Meanwhile, Mr. Kampyongo has advised former republican vice president Dr. Guy Scott to retire from active politics because he has utilized his usefulness.

The Minister said he is disappointed that some utterances by Dr. Scott were in bad taste and fall short of inspiring young people to admire and learn from elderly people like the former vice president.

He wondered how the former vice president has allegedly opted to frustrate PF leadership instead of exhibiting quality leadership and wisdom to the youths.

Dr. Scott, who is now rallying behind opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema, is quoted in one of the tabloids attacking the ruling PF leadership and government.

  3. Iwe’ Chi Gundwane Kampyongo, what type of a broom are you Khoswe’ iwe’??
    Your outgoing Party does not matter anymore, or mean anything to Zambians!
    Uza [email protected] mu August. That ka violent panga belly you have will shrink, if you are lucky enough not to even qualify for Chimbokaila, to answer charges of driving corruption, & mindless violence -(Human rights abuses), remember the Helicopter stoning fracas you directed??
    Military regalia should be the least of your worries, now that your sinking party is terminally ill.

  4. How do you ban something that is outlawed?Wearing military regalia is a criminal offence and this sorry excuse for a minister who is being paid extravangant salary and driving a vehicle whose value is that of a rural clinic thinks he is doing his job.

  5. KAMPYONGO, IT IS TOO LATE TO BE SEEN TO DISCIPLINE YOUR UNRULY YOUTHS. WE HAVE SEEN THE BEHAVIOUR OF THE PF FROM THE TOP TO THE BOTTOM AND ARE SO SICK OF YOU AND CANNOT WAIT FOR AUGUST TO VOTE YOUR INDISCIPLINED PARTY AND YOU OUT.

  6. If I had to advise Lungu on survival I would tell him that it is too late.He should have never surrounded himself with pipo like Kampyongo,Dr Hippo Kambwili,Nkandu Luo the handsome woman,Jean Kapata, Mumbbi Phiri,avis Chama ooh I could go on and on.This election is for HH to loose.

  7. Isn’t Kapyololo the same thug who caused the helicopter carrying Mrs Mwanawasa to almost crash in Mwansabombwe in 2014? This thug should not be a minister but it says a lot about Lungu’s leadership that he is.

  8. Best behaviour will show up the unruly, fight picking opposition! Discipline, discipline.

  9. I really do think PF mean well chashupafye. It is for this reason that I will return back home to retake my govt job and see how I can help EL.
