Patriotic Front -PF- Secretary General Davies Mwila has called for a stop to the grabbing of land by party officials.

Mr. Mwila says party officials must not use the name of the party to grab land from people who legally obtained it.

Speaking when he inspected the Lusaka Province PF offices, the Secretary-General also called for order and harmony in the party.

And the Cleaning Association of Zambia has presented a petition to the Secretary General over some foreign investors that have continued abrogating Statutory Instrument No.22 of 2019 by continuing to use foreign cleaning companies.

Cleaning Association of Zambia Secretary General Lawrence Makumbi has alleged that these companies pay less than the minimum wage and that they are externalizing more than three million dollars out of Zambia to their countries.

Mr. Makumbi has appealed to the Government for support in ensuring that the law is observed.

Meanwhile, Mr. Mwila said PF is a pro-poor party and that it will always ensure the plight of the poor are prioritized.

He pointed out that SI Number 22 of 2019 was put in place to protect local companies from exploitation by foreign entities.

The PF Secretary-General has since assured the Cleaning Association that he will engage the Ministry responsible.

Mr Mwila has also called on the Ministry of Labour to intensify on labour inspections to ensure the minimum wage is being adhered to.

    • @1.1 Shameless
      I was about to say the same thing….now he has admitted that PF thugs are grabbing people’s land….but where is the law enforcement agencies…how do you just tell someone to stop stealing without bringing him/her to Just since you exactly who they are

    • Time is the mother of everything, look at Mugabe – from liberator turned ruthless despot. Any way, PF Secretary General Davis Mwila recently told cabinet ministers and PF members of parliament that they will go to prison if they don’t work hard to win the 2021 general elections.
      Speaking during the Luapula Province party mobilisation launch which was broadcast on Prime TV, Mwila said Luapula Province should save ministers and members of parliament from going to prison.
      “Here in Luapula, we have a lot of support. We have 100 per cent support, but you bring five constituencies with 90,000 votes. Our friends (UPND) one constituency is 90,000 even if it’s in the village. Why are you not voting? That is why I am telling you that if you play, you will cry,” Mwila said.
      “… All the cells will…

    • … All the cells will be full. All these people you see behind me will be in cells. Abena Chitalu (health minister) (you) will not see him. So you ministers and MPs, don’t think this is a joke. This is serious business, are you listening you ministers. This battle we are in is not for playing, that is why them (UPND) when you see they are telling lies and you listen. So you MPs, councillors stop being selfish.”
      He said the party needed serious mobilisation to maintain its strength in Luapula.
      Mwila said the to do this, the party had given 120 bicycles to each constituency in Luapula with additional school books branded with President Edgar Lungu’s portrait.
      But UPND deputy secretary general Patrick Mucheleka, in a statement, stated that the confession by the PF leadership in Luapula…

  1. Davies Mwila looks like a mad man and the impression is made stronger when he opens his mouth. The people of Chipili got rid of his madness and president Lungu thought they were wrong. Let him keep his mad ideas within pF not govt

  2. He is the one who perpetuated this madness and now denying the same people after encouraging them? Do you think they can listen to you now?

    Chalo chawola, because an ex Kachasu drinking & thieving Lawyer, cannot differentiate mediocrity, & chaff, as he forever rewards & surrounds himself with sh.1t, including known D2ug peddlers.
    Jona’s judgement is so clouded & poor because he’s only concerned in partying, stealing, & his main proccupation is NOT development, but in order of priority;
    1. re election.
    2. Flying, without the wife.
    3.plunder & abuse of office.
    4. Drinking and dancing Kanselele.

  4. Why should he even respect them by referring to them as ‘officials?’ Those are criminals who don’t deserve any kind of respect

  5. Good move SG but merely telling them to stop is not good enough. Clearly state what should happen to the perpetrators and future actions the party will take on those who may do the same in future. Be firm / tough when dealing with disgruntled elements in your party. Also deal with those who are driving vehicles without road tax, fitness, no number plates etc. Too much lawlessness under your watch

  6. It’s not only land grabbing that PF need to stop. They need to stop a lot more eg. Corruption, threatening other opposition leaders and much more

  7. Thanks for coming out in the open, Chishimba Kambwili received insults from the same pf, over land allocated to the so called pf officials. Pirates, robbers WHAT A SHAME, DAVIS MWILA WELL DONE.
