The ruling Patriotic Front says it will take legal action against any outsider found wearing its regalia.
Patriotic Front National Elections Committee Chairperson Jean Kapata says the party would not take kindly to any one especially independent candidates found using its regalia.
Ms. Kapata said in an interview with ZANIS that it has come to the party’s attention that people who are contesting as independent are using the PF regalia even when they have resigned from the party.
She says those who have left the party after they were not adopted must refrain from using the PF regalia with immediate effect.
She cited areas like Kabwata in Lusaka, Kalulushi, Wusakile and Chibombo among other places as areas where the trend is high.
She says the PF Elections Committee has since written to the Electoral commission of Zambia to warn the individuals.
And Patriotic Front National Elections Committee Secretary Lazarus Chota says the Party in its adoption process could only pick one individual in each ward or constituency.
He says those who were not adopted could have remained to support the party in various ways other than leaving the party.
