PATRIOTIC Front (PF) secretary general Davies Mwila has congratulated the African National Congress (ANC) for defeating a motion of vote of no confidence against President Zuma in the South African Parliament.

In a statement released yesterday by PF media director Sunday Chanda, Mr Mwila said as a sister party in the region, PF is proud of the historic ties politically, socially and economically between Zambia and South Africa.

“PF knows the amount of pressure driven by commercial interests aimed at derailing South Africa’s liberation movement. Fortunately on August 8, 2017, ANC members of Parliament performed their sovereign duty to affirm what the majority of South Africans have continued to re-affirm,” Mr Mwila said.

He said it is not in doubt that the ANC is South Africa’s majority party which elected a majority President who minority parties seek to remove and superimpose.

Mr Mwila said PF is happy to have received President Jacob Zuma in Zambia on August 5, 2017, and looks forward to deepening cooperation with one of Africa’s longest liberation movements, the ANC, including the sharing of best practices.

And Mr Mwila has congratulated the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) on its victory which saw the re-election of President Paul Kagame.

“The people of Rwanda have once again evidently expressed their confidence in the ruling RPF and its visionary leadership,” he said.

Mr Mwila has since re-affirmed PF’s keen interest in deepening relations with the RPF.

“Let me state that Zambia’s ruling party, PF, is desirous of developing deepened cooperation with the RPF in advancing development for both our political parties.

“PF salutes the resolve by the RPF leadership and indeed the people of Rwanda over the massive development Rwanda has continued to register, considering what the country went through in recent history,” Mr Mwila said.

He has also congratulated President Kagame, who is RPF chairman, on his re-election.

“On behalf of the PF central committee and its membership, allow me to congratulate RPF and its leadership on President Kagame’s resounding re-election,” Mr Mwila said.

    • This was an internal wrangle and chama should abstrain from commenting on such a matter.

      It may have had an internal consequence but this has nothing to warrant a congratulatory from a part let alone a Government.

      We have lost it here.

      Thanks

  3. “PATRIOTIC Front (PF) secretary general Davies Mwila has congratulated the African National Congress (ANC) for defeating a motion of vote of no confidence against President Zuma in the South African Parliament.”

    I wish PF would’ve kept the comments to themselves. It is sad what President Zuma has done to ANC.

    • …it is equally sad how the opposition across the continent is failing it’s people by failing to provide effective checks and balances. Instead the deploy amateurish political tactics that seek to ridicule ruling political parties hoping that will force the populations to rise against their governments. Latest from South Africa is DA has proposed a motion to dissolve parliament; Other opposition have rejected it calling it an attempt to hijack power by any means necessary by DA. Besides, RSA parliament only needs 200 members to operate, ANC has 249 seats; Much like in Zambia, parliament only needs a third to operate-even if upnd don’t attend, PF has the numbers to operate!!

  4. Senior citizens are afraid of experimenting leaders of under5 which is promising nothing. If opposition can conduct themselves in a manner that shows patriotism and respect for the office they wish to occupy change can happen without doubt. These under5s have no future and place for our democracy. Slander and insults towards the ruling leadership is what is making them become irrelevant the African political equation. I can’t vote for an under5, can you?

    Press Red if cannot vote for an under5.

  5. It’s clearly from a strategic point. Zuma did not make negative comments about the actions against HH and UPND, like the SA Opposition Leader that has been strident in his shrill undiplomatic attic voicing on the matter. He came to visit and quietly went about his state visit with dignity. What benefit would PF have in maligning Zuma? We know His Excellency us a great International Relations man. We are surrounded by peaceful neighbours in tune with our govn’t.
