Meanwhile, Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General Davies Mwila has made adjustments of PF members who can attend the Commemorations of this year’s Africa Freedom Day due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In a circular to all PF structures countrywide, Mr. Mwila said the commemoration by the rank and file of the Party during this year’s Africa Freedom Day which falls on Monday 25th has been adjusted.

Mr. Mwila said unlike the 350 people that attended the commemoration last year, State House will this year host only a total of 40 invited guests.

He said he as Secretary-General of the Party will represent the PF at State House.

Mr. Mwila said attendance at the ceremonial laying of wreaths at the Freedom Statue, will only be limited to President Edgar Lungu as well as Defence and Service Chiefs, and a few ministers where he will also represent the party.

At the Provincial level, Mr. Mwila said the will be no public gathering in all provinces.

Mr. Mwila emphasized that Africa Freedom Day is undoubtedly the most significant day on the collective African Calendar.

“While COVID-19 has restricted our gathering to commemorate it, we are all encouraged to use this day to renew our individual resolve for the total economic emancipation of our continent which is in line with the ideals of Patriotic Front”, he said.

  4. Why is Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General Davies Mwila making these announcements as if these PF related matters ….do these people know the difference between govt and party?

  5. Only 40 people invited. It means not all 45 PF ministers are invited. please publish the names so we know which ministers have been automatically adopted in up coming elections.

  6. Who gives a damn what manner of masalamusi jump out of those crocodile Nilotica teeth tomorrow, forsake Chagwa!

  7. Lusakatimes, how does president Lungu’s address to the nation is mixed up with Davies Mwila, he’s a waste of space. We wanted to hear more about covid-19 from president Lungu and how Dr Chilufya Chitalu was removed as covid-19 spokes person after a bust up with Dr Ng’andu minister of finance who insisted on accountability of funds.

  8. Zambia needs a Female president with Zimbabwean female Dr. Arikana Chihombori-Quao’s calibre! She has a great vision and very enlightened woman, unlike Zambian presidents so far..,who rely on reading speeches , ”written by others” and no have vision of their own.
