  1. Typical corrupt PF behaviour: two ministers dropped: not because they were not effective as ministers, but because they were not CORRUPT enough!

  2. Where is AMOS CHANDA going to fit in here, or has he decided to go to eSwatini ahead of his boss, and enjoy their mansons there?

  3. Our friends are still vetting and weighing up on options in their party. Maybe they have a limited choice. When will UPND ever be on top of things instead of waiting for crumbs from PF? How to they inadvertently form government if they can’t provide the wining team to date?

  4. Mwimba Malama (Second Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly) was obviously sidelined because he was usually fair when he presided over debates and proceedings in the house.
    He tried to be unbiased unlike hardcore PF cadres like Patrick Matibini and Catherine Namugala

  5. That’s funny….both Mwenya Munsenge and Chishimba Kambwili were fighting each other in NDC….now they’ve been invited to same bedroom…but when are you re-admitting Wynter Kabimba…he is also part of the looting PF bandit family…Zambian Politicians are jokers…and Zambian voters are more than jokers

  7. I think many people with political desire wanted to be associate with PF. This gives the party several options to replace and adopt best out of best!!!

  8. No doubt there are capable leaders in the ruling party. But it also believes in giving chances to the new faces.

  9. PF is truly a democratic party that gives equal opportunity to everyone. Unlike dictatorial UPND that just imposes thoughts on its members and never let them grow.

  10. PF is ‘People oriented’, it is going by what Zambians want and not by their personal preferences or needs that we see in UPND. HH and his party members’ sabotaged bill-10, opposed the Cyber laws and criticized every development project benefiting the people, only because PF government is doing it. UPND has nothing to do with the people!

  11. PF is the strongest party in Zambia, it is a brand and hence, they cannot take any chances when it comes to adopting members to the party.

  12. It says good deeds attract good and bad deeds attract bad! Hence we will only see dedicated and hardworking people in the PF party. Whereas, UPND is full of people like the recently adopted Mubita Nawa who was caught disrespecting the Head of the State in public.

  13. There are people willing to join PF and there are people willing to leave UPND. What an irony!!! No certification is needed to show the strongest powerful party in the country!

  14. PF is continuously following very peaceful selections based on the capability to deliver the choice of the people.

  15. Even though it is normal for any party to replace and adopt members. But still, HH supporters will have a problem with this…????I think it is understandable as existing members are leaving and no smart people want to be linked with UPND.

  16. The party can only grow if its members are hardworking and have the vision to bring change to the country. We will see no contradictory words from PF members, everyone holds the same vision as President Edgar Lungu.

  17. ITS ALL ABOUT MONEY WITH PF THERE ARE NO LOYAL CADRES IN PF ITS ALL ABOUT THEIR POCKETS
    AND NEW LIFE STYLE IN SOME WAY ITS UNDERSTANDABLE … WHAT PF SHOULD KNOW IS YOU CANT CHANGE WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO US IN THE PAST FEW YEARS

  18. The manner Mwimba Malama used to preside over debate in Parley, one would think that he’d crossed the floor. What has happened to my crush Bambala Chalikosa? Silvia why?

  19. UPND also anticipated mass PF in-house squabbles by now after dropping or shuffling candidates. To date they are intact, unlike others who make constituencies personal to holder.
    Hon Jack Mwiimbu, for instance has been Monze MP for four straight terms looks more indispensable than Mutinta Mazoka.
