Kabwe Central Member of Parliament Tutwa Ngulube has unreservedly apologised to President Edgar Lungu for the harsh comments he has been uttering in the media.
Mr. Ngulube has also apologised to all PF Members he might have offended by his utterances, as well as his move to take the party to court.
He has told ZNBC News that the party is bigger than any individual hence the need to promote peace and reconciliation.
Mr. Ngulube says what the party needs now is unity and not divisions.
He further says he will withdraw the court case against the PF when the matter comes up on Wednesday for the interparty hearing in Kabwe.
Last week , the Kabwe lawmaker sued the party for trying to violate his rights as an MP and party member. Speaking to journalists shortly after filing in an injunction at the Kabwe High Court, Mr Ngulube also asked the court for an injunction restraining the PF from expelling him as doing so would affect his rights as MP and as a member of the party.
“Today, the 11th of January, 2018, I have decided to sue the PF and asked the court for an injunction restraining them from victimising me because what they are trying to do is going to affect my rights as MP and as a member of the party,” said Mr Ngulube.
Mr Ngulube confirmed that the matter of expelling him from the party has now been launched and becomes a court case, adding that what remained was to serve the party in the province with the documents so that the legal battle can begin.
Mr Ngulube said as far as he was concerned, the issue of trying to expel him from the party was a serious matter because the people who are trying to do so have no authority under the PF constitution to expel an MP.
He added that the person who appointed them to push for his expulsion, also do not have the powers to appoint them.
“As far as I am concerned, this is not a matter we should even be joking about because the people who want to deal with me do not have the powers under the PF constitution to deal with the MP,” said Mr Ngulube.
