The PF- has accused the Post Newspapers of allegedly writing malicious stories against the Head of State in order to improve their newspaper sells.
PF Deputy Spokesperson Frank Bwalya says the daily tabloid wants to create curiosity in a bid to boost its sells.
Mr. Bwalya says Post Newspaper editors know that President Edgar Lungu is discharging his duties and that the tabloid’s reporters even covered him when he swore in Judges of the Court of Appeal in Lusaka today.
He says the Post Newspaper’s alleged schemes against the Head of State must be condemned with the contempt they deserve.
Mr. Bwalya says members of the public should ignore the newspaper’s negative stories against President Lungu.
He was reacting to a story carried in today’s edition of the Post Newspaper asking the whereabouts of the President.
Efforts to get a comment from Post Newspaper News Editor failed by broadcast time.
Last week, Mr Bwalya castigated the Post Newspaper for carrying a story that suggested that President Lungu had been flown abroad for medical attention.
PF Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri says no amount of malice will deter President Edgar Lungu from delivering for the people.
And Mrs. Phiri says President Lungu is enjoying good health.
She says the president is next week scheduled to campaign in various parts of the country.
Mrs. Phiri was speaking in an interview with ZNBC News in Lusaka.
