President Lungu to handpick Central Committee members as Provincial Chairmen endorse Bowman Lusambo for MCC

Headlines President Lungu to handpick Central Committee members as Provincial Chairmen endorse Bowman...

President Edgar Lungu will handpick Central Committee members who will be approved at the National Council which will precede this weekend’s PF General Conference, it has emerged.

Both PF Secretary General Davies Mwila and National Chairman for Mobilisation Richard Musukwa confirmed separately that there will no elections this weekend to elect members of the Central Committee.

“Elections! Which elections? There will be no voting this weekend. We will only be endorsing the list of names that will come from State House,” Mr Mwila said in an interview.

He said the powers for the President to submit a list of officials he wants in the Central Committee is provided for under Article 57 of the PF Manifesto.

And Mr Musukwa said the delegates will be given a chance to deliberate on the President’s picks once the names are submitted to the General Conference.

He said the constitutional provision was designed to ensure that only those that are capable of working with the President at all times.

Meanwhile, Provincial Chairmen from across all the ten Provinces have endorsed Kabushi Member of Parliament Bowman Lusambo for a position in the Central Committee.

Speaking on behalf of the other Chairmen, Copperbelt Acting Provincial Chairman Bernard Zulu said Mr Lusambo has demonstrated great acumen as a leader who can mobilize the party effectively.

Mr Zulu said Mr Lusambo’s ascension to the Central Commitee will help reposition the party across the country.

“We have looked at the list of people vying for MCC positions and we are convinced as Hon. Lusambo offers the opportunity to strengthen the role of young people in the PF. He has strong grassroot support and he a crowd puller especially among the youths who are crucial in this election.

  1. it is really sad reading that PF has killed its democrasy at Party level ,so what democracy can they bring to the nation ,so far it is only HH and UPND
    and UNIP who showed some level of maturity , hope UNIP can stand up to regain its lost grory and visionary leadership that Great Kaunda and team gave to this great country and great people of zambia , not these visionless mwankoles that are taking us no where , but destroying the country’s global standing , economy and now our once hard earned democracy.

    Zambians donot Vote for PF and its leadership if for once you love this country ,more especially my cousins and relatives from luapula , Northern, Eastern provinces , as i know it is very painful ,but this is a pill we should swallow and give the chance to UPND and HH to show us what…

  4. Bowman should focus on re-election to Parliament after serving only one term. What value will he bring to the table as MCC? The people of Kabushi still need him. After all, he has already invested enough in his re-election bid. What’s prompting him to change?

  8. We follow our party constitution to the letter. Simple. Why should an outsider tell us what to do. We have many people desperate to stand for internal positions so this is the process as allowed for in constitution.

    I am getting excited as we approach elections. Can you imagine seeing hh ugly face crying when the results are announced. I have ordered 100 bottles of moet champagne for celebration in August. I will dance mwebantu

  9. How different is it from what Hichilema and UPND did? I don’t see any difference between Edgar and Hichilema and both don’t deserve to be in State House

  10. Really laughable and shameful at the same time ….even during UNIP’s one party rule there used to be voting for MCCs the so called insecure humble one wants to handpick bootlickers and yes men who joined PF yesterday like Bowman and that Paul Moonga.

  11. KZ IS A DEMENTED LOST SOLE ……….. HE THINKS HIS POSTS ON HERE IS SWAYING THE VOTERS KIKIKI
    LOOK AND LISTEN ON THE GROUND JUST AS ORDINARY PERSON
    YOU WILL BE SHOCKED AT WHAT YOU HEAR, FOR THOSE WHO HAVENT PICKED IT UP ALREADY, THE AVERAGE ZAMBIAN WILL TELL YOU WHAT HE FEELS YOU WANT TO HEAR…. SO YOU CANNOT GAUGE ON THE MEDIOCRE CROWDS LUNGU PULLS … THATS IS JUST CURIOSITY AND FREE GIFTS

  12. New Democracy in PF, hand picking ? what have they been doing all along ? If UPND did this even if it was within the constitution, you will have heard from failed project lawyers from PF.

  13. Picking figures on the sidelines of an elective convention! Why can’t PF and UPND do things differently? Do they have the same mother from whom they were breastfed? Is HH and ECL any different from each other? Is this true or heresay?

  14. While these upnd baboons are stressing and panicking, I am here relaxing with my very beautiful wlfe listening to boyz ll men.

  15. Only in PF where people like Lusambo are seen as assest. Who is lusambo? An empty person without morals. With him everything goes and survives on booting leaking the bosses.

  16. I dont think a dull chap with leakage assisted G12 six point certificate like SG Mwila even knows what virtual convention is…to these dinosaurs they assume that because they are alone in a room they can just choose names from spreadsheet of various goons…..this is just the snapshot of what’s to come if PF wins in August…..a Kakistocracy dictatorial government of fooooooools!!

  17. @ Tikki, evoking laughter indeed celebrating mediocrity and less than deserved! It would be a bold ConCourt to rule magnanimously in favor of the Constitution rather you have one whose bench is bladder pressed to ease itself justifying it’s okay for a colossal amount of money has already been spent on production of campaign materials therefore Zambians must let go on this one this time around but it wont repeat itself! Compromise is a crack to a strong foundation! The poorly crafted Constitution must again be amended with simple straight forward language and well constructed sentences if difficult to Zambian legal minds then just copy and paste the contentious articles from other easy to follow constitutions like the Tanzanian one!

  18. POORLY CRAFTED CONSTITION OR NOT .. FORGET THE MONEY SPENT ON CAMPAIGNS
    TRY TELLING THAT TO THE DISINFRANCHISED AND THE VAST MAJORITY LIVING UNDER THE POVERTY LINE
    WHILST THEY SEE CORRUPT!0N CARRYING ON UNABATED AND THE VAST SUMS BEING GIVEN AS ENPOWERMENT JUST A FEW MONTHS BEFORE ELECTIONS . THE ILL!TERATE ARE NOT SO ILL!TERATE ANYMORE .. THERE ARE TREMORS IN ZAMBIA TODAY WHICH CANNOT BE IGNORED BY OUR BLIND LEADERS WHO APPEAR TO BE THINKING OF THEIR POCKETS AND NOTHING ELSE
    AS YOU TEMORS ARE A WARNING SIGN WHICH SHOULDN’T BE IGNORED

  19. For those of you who were still breastfeeding at the time, this is what used to happen under the UNIP one party state. Kaunda nominated members of the Central Committee and the UNIP National Council rubber stamped them. PF is UNIP v2.1.

  20. dictatorship covered in democracy . what’s the purpose of holding the general conference if only one person is choosing the entire central committee and you expect them to serve the people ? no way they will be solely bow to him the appointee. Too many cowards in politics just serving bellies AND NO HOPE FOR THE FUTURE.

  21. PF IS A DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND AS SUCH WOULD URGE HIS EXCELLENCY PRESIDENT EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU TO LET THERE BE ELECTION FOR MCC’S POSITIONS.
    LET THE PRESIDENT SEEK WISDOM FROM GOD PER BIBLE’S JAMES 1 V 5.
    WE WANT NO PART IN FINGURE POINTING THAT MEMBERS WERE UNDEMOCRATICALLY APPOINTED AT A FUTURE DATE.
    THOSE ENCOURAGING THE PRESIDENT TO ANOTHER ROUTE SHOULD SERIOUSLY RETHINK WIELY.
    SO YOUR EXCELLENCY HAVE SHOWN GOOD CONSULTATIVE GOVERNANCE, UPHOLD THAT TENET AS YOUR THE NEW TERM .

    GOD BLESS PF

  22. ECL is now like a King. He will handpick all Members of Central Committee and inturn MMC will endorse him as PF President. This is Dictatorship at its best which ECL is Exporting to the Republican Presidency in breach of the Republican Constitution. If ECL is not stopped in his quest for a Third Term Zambia will be transformed into a One Party State Dictatorship.The Return to a One Party State Dictatorship will have far reaching consequences on Zambia. The Economy will collapse and Constitutional Democracy will be dead in Zambia. No Rule of Law,Good Governance and Respect for Human Rights. Zambians should brace up for tough times ahead with Dictator ECL at the Helm.

  23. KZ the coward corrupt PF diasporan in the UK….. such a sorry person….. thankfully he is on NO LIST that Lungu would waste his attention on!

  24. And Bowman on the ascendance? That’s the guy that called ordinary Zambians LAZY….. he gets promotion? That says everything about PF and Lungu. Time for defeat on August 12!

  25. I m a commando in the Royal Marines, I would take out these cretins in PF in a day or two. Lungu still has Chawama market tactics. How long can you rig elections.? He is not even fit to be buried at a embassy park when kicks the backet. He should be put in a sack and thrown into the sea like Bin laden!
