President Edgar Lungu has called for the overhaul of the party structures in Northern Province.

President Lungu says overhauling of the structures should start from the lowest organs of the party.

He said this when he addressed party officials at the Provincial Planning Unit in Kasama.

Meanwhile, President Lungu has challenged the party in the Province to redeem itself following the loss to the opposition of a local government seat in Lopososhi district.

He said the party leadership should learn from the mistakes in Ilambo and prepare adequately for the Chilubi parliamentary by election.

The Head of State further called on the party to start preparing itself for 2021 general elections by embarking on party mobilisation exercise.

Speaking at the same function PF National Chairperson, Samuel Mukupa challenged party officials to unity and work for the party.

Earlier, Northern Province PF Chairperson Chungu Bwalya regretted the party loss in the Illambo ward which is also in his constituency.

Meanwhile, the ruling Patriotic Front -PF- says it will not impose a candidate on the people of Chilubi constituency for the forthcoming parliamentary by-election.

PF Secretary General Davies Mwila says the party will only consider a candidate who will be accepted and adopted by the lower organs.

Mr. Mwila said this when he met party officials in Chilubi District.

He advised party officials to scrutinize individuals that have offered themselves to contest the Parliamentary seat on the PF ticket.

Meanwhile, Mr. Mwila has urged the PF members in Chilubi constituency to bury their differences and work as a team.

He further instructed Northern Province PF chairperson Lazarus Chungu to quickly visit Chilubi district and help resolve any misunderstandings.

Mr. Mwila was accompanied by PF Western Province Chairperson, Kafuka Kafuka and PF deputy media director Antonio Mwanza, among others.

The Chilubi Parliamentary seat fell vacant following the death of area MP Rosaria Fundanga.

    • “The Head of State further called on the party to start preparing itself for 2021 general elections by embarking on party mobilisation exercise”. This is the same mouth that said during the first Press Conference that “why should the opposition be campaigning all the time….?” I hope you give the opposition parties equal access to the electorate as PF. PF kuya bebele this time no song will save you.

  1. Ba lungu when u work? Everytime is travelling. How much is meali meal today? Has load shedding Finisised? How much is fuel today? Is economy doing while? I hope zambians have learned a lesson.

  2. Wait a minute! Is that a gravel runway at the airport? I thought areas with ruling party MPs and councilors are cheese and tarred roads.#tamulya cheese?

  4. They will need to campaign harder with a bad economy you have no idea of fixing, plus they have seen what Lungu has to offer and so far it hasn’t been good. Original members of PF have been sounding the alarm about replacing Lungu, he is no longer marketable. Going into 2021 with Lungu is going to be disastrous, he is clueless, powerless, too soft and very corruption

  5. This must be the last time we allow chancers to run government. Napapata bane! Let’s scrutinize each and every candidate and evaluate them very, very carefully. This is not right. You cannot sow seed on barren ground and expect fruit – let’s choose beyond party affiliation so we get in the best we can muster this time… top to bottom.

  6. The loss of a ward bye election has terribly shaken them. They have already lost the Copperbelt to the opposition, accept it or not. And now it is the Northern Province. Luapula people are yet to wake up from their slumber.We have already made up our minds to remove this selfish regime. Even if mealie meal prices reduced to K50 per bag and loadshedding ends, I would still NOT vote for this government. They duped us in the worst possible way

  7. Kikiki!!!! Balubana manje. Its everywhere boss where things have to change – even Lusaka and Copperbelt loses are now the order of the day and these are big time votes PF is losing mind you. When a team changes strategy aimlessly just know that its about to be relegated to lower ranks. Welcome 2021 – muchinje!!!! Kikiki!!!! Pamafi!
    Disaster!!!!!

  8. Lungu your time is up iwe kach-lkaIa kawls0.
    My whlte wlfe and I are voting in the United kingdom general election. It feels good to vote in credible elections where you know your vote counts. After that I am taking her for pregnancy test as we have had a pregnancy scare. Wish us luck

  9. Brethren let us not resort to insulting the president no matter how angry we maybe with what is going on in our country. Insults should not even be the last thing on our minds.

  10. please overhaul your self as well from your thieving manners, or as if you have any manners, chakolwa iwe, mukula thief

  11. No need to capaign, people will be wooed by what have done for them. If you have done nothing, expect no miracle in the last one year last one year and the best you can do is not be a candidate in 2021.You will lose and it will be painful. All the close friends will join another party because ,in Zambia,politics is about bellies and amassing wealthy .I don’t need to be a fake prophet to declare these words.If you will win,count your self lucky.

  12. The PF has done extremely well from the time it formed government. They have taken development to all parts of Zambia and are on track with the vision 2030as well as the 7NDP (2017-2021) Keep it up PF.May God bless ECL and come 2021 its ECL nafuchi nafuchi. Dedication songs to all the bloggers out here: Download JK’s new album to be released next year called 2021

    akachema ingombe song by JK
    alya umushili
    ifintu ni lungu
    sata somone
    bola ni 5years
    lungu wabose

    nafuchi nafuchi by king dandy

    With the mighty JK on the PF’s side victory is assured come 2021.UPND voters will dance all the way to vote for ECL. Ifintu ni Lungu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Fellow country men and women, let us not insult our President, we can all agree has brought a lot of misery to the Zambian people except ofcourse those eating with him. Let is not sink to the level of PF, Zambia does not belong to PF, in 2021, this party has to go.

  14. Wrong heading
    “President Lungu calls for the overhaul of party structures in Northern Province” should read as below;

    PF Chairman Lungu calls for the overhaul of PF party structures in Northern Province

  15. how can one be angry for 5 years that is stupidity at its best level of degree.Be cool and see what God will do for this country not insults.If one insults for sake supporting HH you are wasting your time bro.Gay,Satanism, Freemanson by fire and by force away from this land.
