PF begins the process to replace the Top Three Leaders in the Party

Feature Politics PF begins the process to replace the Top Three Leaders in the...

PATRIOTIC Front (PF) Secretary General Mr. Davies Mwila has offered to leave his position and venture into farming as part of the process to rebrand the party following its defeat to the UPND Alliance in the August 12 polls.

Mr. Mwila says the party president Edgar Lungu and National Chairman Samuel Mukupa who have also offered to leave their positions and will together with him remain Members of the Central Committee.

He said the party has since started the process of identifying people to take up the three positions among others at the Convention that will be held soon.

Addressing a Media Briefing today at the Party Headquarters, Mr. Mwila said he had done his part as Chief Executive Officer of the PF and it is time for new blood to drive the party agenda into the future.

“As a party, we have started the process of bringing in new leaders; a transition of handing over the Office of party president, Office of Secretary-General, the Office of National Chairman. These three positions, we have made it very clear that we are not going to continue,” Mr. Mwila said.

“So the party has to look for a president, they have to look for the Secretary-General, they have to look for the National Chairperson. Article 52 of our Constitution is very clear on the position of the president; it is only one line and it states that the party president shall be elected by the General Conference. Whatever goes up, must come down – no one is there forever.”

  1. Wishing you the best in retirement. Make sure you invest clean money in your farming. You stand to lose everything should the Govt find evidence of money laundering in your dealings. Do not say, you were not warned !

  2. @OJ, things like you are not needed anymore. Stop talking about money money money. Most PF leaders are dull and poor. The rich PF are the cadres, pure criminals who were enriched from crimes. The likes of Lusambo, Kamba, Kalimanshi, etc. And most of those thugs will continue thriving under UPND once they find way to bribe new ministers.

    All the best in your retirement… please return the money that belongs to the people of Zambia that you looted while in charge of the treasury. Ir perhaps good luck in jail… you were clever to enact that law of prisoners visiting their families at home (you sure saw it coming).
    I think HH shouldn’t have cut a deal with RB to spare Lungu from jail time. At least he should have negotiated for him to return a % of his loot.

  4. I think despite all we hear about your performance which they say wasn’t good, however in the infrastructure development you did extremely well opening up Zambia to good things to come if the new government administration could build on what you have done.
    What we also do know is that the topmost leader must leader must lead with impeccable character that would serve as an example to the whole team.
    The Party cannot just die because of one leader who didn’t lead well, what you have left behind as concerning infrastructure development is unmatched it will make Zambians remember you.
    Zambia needs strong opposition in order to prosper the in coming government is just as corrupt as the outgoing one, we have already seen it from the start.

  5. So they have finally accepted the blame for PFs failure to win the last elections. Good riddance to them. I hope he does much better as a farmer than he did as party SG.

  6. PF is done, unless otherwise. They are scampered and did not know they will be terribly hit. Its sad though dying of a political that had tremendous power. Within a month it has exhibited huge signs of collapse.

  7. PF is a parasitic party , can’t survive without state funding……..

    Wait for the bill that will hit them for lungus campaigns……..

  9. GIVEN LUBINDA OR MILES SAMPA WOULD BE DISASTROUS AS ONE LACKS GRAVITAS AND THE OTHER IS CHILDISH.
    I WISH SEAN TEMBO WAS IN PF.
    ONE THING IS CERTAIN WE NEED A SERIOUS STRONG OPPOSITION TO THE CAPITALIST AND HEARTLESS GOVERNMENT OF hh

  10. As expected. Having a central committee , I truly believe the PF will remain as a stable party in Zambian Politics. Zambia needs such a party that will work to support and sponsor a leadership that will help Zambia move forward. A strong central committee is the way to go.

  11. The last convention the PF had, should have taken care of these positions.

    But some leaders want to give way only when the bullet has landed in their heads, (Elias Chipimo Snr’s paraphrased statement.)

  12. It’s high time Zambians realized that being a farmer is also professional and not every Jim, Jack or, Mary can qualify to be called a farmer! The categorization of farmer is lightly applied to describe anyone that chooses to grow crops or engage in animal husbandry! Mwila will leave his party position and engage or try his hand at growing crops but never should call himself a farmer until he qualifies to be termed such! Acquiring a farm does not make one a farmer, it’s only until they have learnt the skills that accompany farming! The country is not making tangible advances in Agriculture because everyone growing a field of crops and has a few chickens or other poultry running around with probably a couple other smaller and bigger animals is referred to as farmer!
