Patriotic Front Secretary General Davies Mwila said that President Edgar Lungu is the PF Candidate for the 2021 General Elections.

Mr. Mwila has since advised members who may have ambitions for the presidency to cancel them as the party already has a candidate.

He said this during the PF provincial Fundraising Dinner for Northern Province in kasama last evening.

Mr. Mwila also reiterated that the PF will on the first of July 2018 start conducting Elections for the party structures that will build up to the General conference in 2020.

And Mr Mwila has challenged PF structures to rise above the differences that engulfed the party before the elections.

He said the party Central Committee has resolved that members who stood as independent candidates and their supporters can come back to the party but only as ordinary members.

The PF Secretary General said this is for the purpose of discipline because the party does not want to promote the mentality that it is acceptable to contest as an independent candidate without the PF Central Committee blessings.

Mr Mwila was in the province to assess the general condition of the party structures in all districts and to thank the party structures for their efforts which led to the Patriotic Front’s victory in the August 11, 2016 general Elections.

And Patriotic Front Chairperson for Mines and Minerals in the Central Committee Yamfwa Mukanga called on Party structures in Northern Province to rally behind President Edgar Chagwa Lungu as he works hard to deliver on the 2016-2021 election manifesto.

Addressing Provincial, district, constituency and branch officials in Mungwi on 26th May 2017, Hon Mukanga said President Lungu had proved himself worthy of the 2021 candidature and all structures must rally behind him without exception. He also called for loyalty and dedication to duty in the Party. “Loyalty and dedication are signs of a disciplined party. All of us as members of the party must be loyal to the leadership we have and make sacrifices. Late President Michael Sata founded this party on sacrifice and that is one attribute the party must never lose sight of”, he said.

Speaking at the same meeting, Patriotic Front Chairperson for Land and Natural Resources and the Party’s first Member of Parliament in 2001 Hon Musonda Mpankata thanked Mungwi and Malole Constituency for being a dedicated PF stronghold as demonstrated by the votes President Lungu and Vice President Inonge Wina and Patriotic Front received in the 2016 elections.

Hon Mpankata called on PF structures to mobilize and educate the electorate in Northern Province against voter apathy. “There is something Northern Province must learn from Southern Province’s voting pattern. We must aim for zero voter apathy in 2021. That is what democracy expects us to do. As structures, that is a challenge before you – we have the numbers and we must create interest in our people to fight voter apathy”, he said.

The Secretary General Mr. Davies Mwila is in Northern Province mobilizing Party structures from Wards up to the Province and to understand their challenges in recruiting new members. He winds his tour of duty tomorrow, 27th May 2017 after addressing a meeting of Party officials in Kasama District.

      We won’t tolerant the nonsense of saying pono pono this is not a go area for UPND, we want a free campaign in CB, LSK, Northern, etc. We also won’t tolerate name calling-we now know who the real sataniist between HH and chagwa is, so tricks of brain washing masses with unfounded allegations won’t hold.

      With fair level playing field for campaigns, you will see how your drunken master will fall!

    • LUNGU does NOT qualify for a 3rd term. The Zambian Constitution is clear. It only allows 3rd term for a running mate Veep who has taken over after the death of an incumbent president, NOT a DEFENCE MINISTER.

      Anyway, lungu is a dull lawyer who can’t interpret the same constitution he swore to protect in a stadium full of cadres.

      – This is lungu’s last term in office.
      – This will be the death of PF as kambwili will come & tear it apart.

      Only a dull lawyers can think a traffic offense can be transformed into a treason offense.

    • Zambians still have 400 years of suffering to go. I agree with Chisenga about how Zambians vote. We lost quite a number of friends last elections. Zambians can drive you crazy. It is usually a bad economy that tends to unite them. I wouldn’t waste my time in jail for Zambians. They deserve the leaders they have!

THEY ARE CHAPS IN THE DIASPORA. THOSE WHO FEEL AND ENJOY AS A RESULT OF THE HARD WORKING ECL ARE ALWAYS IN ZAMBIA AND VOTE ACCORDING TO THE HARD WORK OF PF AND ECL. IN SHORT ECL AND PF WILL WIN AGAIN.

    • Can’t we give our opinion without insults?I know the subject is annoying, but let’s be civil. To man belongs the plans but its God who fulfills. Its annoying because the President hasn’t even been in office for one year and is in economic crisis and is seeking for $1.6billion which comes with conditions among them freezing of employment, increase of fees, increase of taxes which will lead to less money in pockets, this 2021 is to divert attention…

  8. You see the dullness of ba mwila, instead of focusing on developing zambia, he has started campaigning for Lungu who has 4 more years to go. By the way who does mwila think he is to start telling people to put aside their political ambitions just because he thinks Lungu is eligible? Where is democracy if you say he is the sole candidate for 2021, you people must learn from America and Britain, where people choose and no one imposes anyone on any position. Fili uko yuleya, na corruption mukwete ba PF awe tukamumwesha mu 2021.

  11. @Musula Kupanta;truth be told,if your HH was not in jail,he was going be marketing himself on daily basis.these are politicians,so they always look at next elections which in this case will be in 2021.
    But Davis Mwila is wrong by stopping other PF members to challenge ECL at PF convention!!Davis Mwila must not do politics like in UPND where no convention has been called since 2006.plus nobody is allowed to challenge HH.ZAMBIANS HATE POLITICS OF THIS NATURE!!!
    Please president Lungu allow other PF members to compete with you at a convention so that Zambia may see a difference between PF and HH’s upnd!!PLUS DELIVER DEVELOPMENT ACROSS ZAMBIA AND SURELY 2021 WILL REMAIN YOURS BA PF!!

    Problem is, majority of Zambians are fools and short sighted!

    Despite what’s going on, come 2021, they will vote in numbers for PF.

  20. PF WILL WIN AGAIN IN 2021. THERE IS NO ALTERNATIVE. THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE I AM SEEING HERE ARE INSULTS. CALLING LUNGU DRUNKARD, LAZY, CORRUPT, KADANSA, THIEF, DUNDER-HEAD, BUCK-TEETH, BUM ETC. YOU NEED TO GIVE US AN ALTERNATIVE. TELL US WHAT IS WRONG WITH OUR EDUCATION, AGRICULTURE, ECONOMIC, HEALTH ETC SECTORS. THEN GIVE US TANGIBLE SOLUTIONS OF HOW YOU WILL TURN ZAMBIA INTO A HAVEN OF ECONOMIC BOOM AND PRODUCTIVITY ON EACH OF THOSE SECTORS. I MEAN WORKABLE SOLUTIONS, DIFFERENT FROM WHAT THE PF IS DOING, ELUCIDATING CLEARLY HOW YOURS WILL WORK AND HOW MUCH (PERCENTAGE) GAINS WE WILL SCORE FROM YOUR APPROACH. NOT JUST DISCREDITING HEECL BECAUSE HE IS NOT FROM DUNDUMWEZI. OTHERWISE, THE DEVIL WE KNOW IS BETTER THAN THE “ANGEL” FROM DUNDUMWEZI WHOM WE HAVE NEVER KNOWN.

    • FROM THE TIME THAT THE PETITION WAS SHOT DOWN BY THE PF JUDICIARY I SEE NO REASON OF VOTING BECAUSE PF WILL DO EXACTLY WHAT THEY DID (RIG THE ELECTION). FROM THE TIME PF TOOK THE REIGNS OF POWER, IT IS NOT THE VOTERS WHO DECIDE WHO GOES TO STATE HOUSE BUT THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION OF ZAMBIA (ECZ) AND THOSE WHO COUNT WHO ARE OR ON PF PAYROLL. TRUST ME, IT IS A WASTE OF TIME TO VOTE IN ZAMBIA. WE DONT KNOW WHERE TO TURN TO, OUR DOCILE ARMY IS BUSY LICKING LUNGU’S ARS4 AND DANCING DUNUNA REVERSE. GOD HELP US.

  21. On the other hand HH will not be available in 2021, he is already a cabbage, just 45 days in correction. What a weak soul, so his donkeys overrated his resilience by likening him to Mandela? You donkeys, you must take the blame for causing the waste that is now HH, instead of guiding the underfive boy. Steven Katuka especially.

  22. So HH will next appear in court on 12 June ka? His defence is appaling, they are quite happy to raise one preliminary after another while underfive is wasting in correction with judicial issues. If his case is solid and the prosecution have no solid evidence of treason as we hear from UPNDonkeys and Cape donkeys, why not proceed to trial in High Court and get acquitted expeditiously like the insulting case? Instead he will stay there weeks if not months attending preliminary issues by his defence. And if the prosecution decided to be nasty they could start raising preliminary issues too.

  23. @24 Chisenga, you are right they have viable ideas.
    Just look at their dead petition, they just say underfive should be the one in State House, no where have they mentioned that he would run the country better if he was the President. But judging from his 2016 campaign promises and the choice of vice president/running mate even his donkeys will agree that that is not the way to run a country and resolve its economic weaknesses, they do privately agree that underfive is NO alternative leadership for this country. In fact to me now even Greens Sinkamba is far better than HH in articulating issues.

  29. I have a serious problem with politicians. After winning the elections their biggest concern is winning the next elections. Politicians are always preoccupied with the next elections but a true leader is always concerned about the next generation. If you are only thinking about yourself and your party and not laying a solid foundation for the next generation then you are not a leader but a looter.

  30. With this announcement by the SG of PF I have today 29 may, 2017 declared myself ready for constructive criticism against the PF. I am against Mr Lungu standing in 2021 because this is morally wrong, constitutionally wrong and against public expectation. This is the end of PF unless something drastic happens.

  31. Mr Davies Mwila, you are very wrong to choose a candidate alone for over 13 million Zambians. This is the same mistake HH has been making over the years by blocking everyone in UPND for presidency. We all want to participate and its our right to do so. Competition is very healthy and thats democracy. Don’t turn PF into UPND. In PF we believe in Democratic elections not Appointments.
