PF Secretary General Davies Mwila says the party has welcomed former UPND vice president Geoffrey Mwamba to the PF. Mr. Mwila says it is the agenda of the PF to mobilise and grow the party.
He however says Mr. Mwamba and those re-joining the party must follow the laid down procedures of the party through official notification in writing to the Secretary General of the party.
He has since encouraged Mr Mwamba to feel at home and work with the structures as he had indicated when he was received by Member of the Central Committee and Lusaka Province Party Chairman Mr. Paul Moonga at the Party Secretariat.
The Secretary General has further dismissed social media reports alleging that the top Party officials shunned welcoming Hon Mwamba, insisting that MCC Moonga is a very Senior member of the Party who was delegated to welcome the former UPND Vice President at short notice.
Mr. Mwila has since urged party members to embrace all those wishing to re-join the party as directed by the Party President who is also Republican President.
Mr. Mwamba and several other UPND members yesterday re-joined the PF.
Meanwhile, Mr. Mwila has explained that Kelvin Bwalya Fube has a democratic right to contest any position in the party but should refrain from insulting the party leadership.
He disclosed that preparations for the party general convention for 2020 are progressing well.
