The opposition Patriotic Front (PF) has instructed its presidential aspirants to halt campaigns until the date for the General Conference is set.
PF Member of the Central Committee in charge of Information and Publicity Hon. Raphael Nakacinda said when he addressed the media in Lusaka today that all presidential aspirants and their sympathizers are hereby directed to tone down.

MCC Nakacinda further directed PF presidential hopefuls and other members to focus their energies on reorganising and structuring the party ahead of the 2026 general elections.

The party is expected to go for an extraordinary Convention by June next year in readiness for the 2026 general elections.

“As we rescue the Zambians from the shackles of the government of deceit, a government that was formed by a political party and its leadership on a basis of lying and deceiving with fake promises, the Patriotic Front is at this moment focused on institutionalizing itself as a machinery capable of carrying any candidate for the Zambian people in 2026 general election,” he said.

“Therefore, being a democratic right, as it were, any form of campaign and segmentations or factionalism capable of disturbalising the party will not be tolerated forthwith. We are one united Patriotic Front for the betterment of the Zambian people.”

MCC Nakacinda stressed the need for party members across the country to work with the party leadership

He said this should be done for the benefit of Zambians who cannot wait any longer for a credible repentant PF in the opposition to take over “this government of liars.”

“People are watching and waiting for a solution to this quagmire they are in, the quagmire we put them in as a party because of our conduct. The party needs builders other than dependants,” he said.

Hon Nakacinda said PF will not risk having a big man syndrome at the party. He called on all party members to be disciplined.

Meanwhile, the Patriotic Front have established that arrogance, hooliganism, cadrism and indiscipline are some of the factors which cost the party general election of 12th August, 2021.

PF Chairman for Information and Publicity Raphael Nakacinda said this at a press briefing following a central committee postmortem meeting held in Lusaka on Saturday, November 13, 2021.

He says the postmortem report established that arrogance, hooliganism, cadrism and indiscipline were causes of the electoral defeat.
In the election, the Patriotic Front was relegated to the opposition after ten years of being the ruling party.

The UPND are now the ruling party after Mr Hakainde Hichilema polled 2.8 votes at Presidential level compared to then President, Edgar Lungu’s 1.8 million votes.

However, Mr Nakacinda says the party fully accepts the postmortem report and all the members should work with all structures and remain united.
He is optimistic that the PF will be the only party that has lost a general election but is confident that it will bounce will back to power.

Mr Nakacinda says the Patriotic Front central committee wants all party members that have expressed interest in the position of the presidency and indeed any other portfolio to halt premature campaigns in the best interest of the party.

Mr Nakacinda says party member energies should be channeled towards rebuilding the party.

  1. “Ifwe twa ba na Imbwili” I really hope that Kambwili wins so that PG can go into oblivion. On a serious not Kambwili does not have the support of senior PF members.

  3. You can tell from this media briefing that this is a party that will never learn, another hurtful period if this party does not change is awaiting in 2026, even using an expelled and indisciplined MMD member as its face is a sign of a party that will never learn, and their leaders will once again say we don’t know why we lost elections. Totally disconnected

  4. As #6 Dabwitso states, PF is totally disconnected. They still have absolutely NO IDEA why they lost the election. That’s fine with me guys, keep on going as you are now, elect that absolute NOBODY of a Kambwili to be your presidential candidate, and we can all be sure that you won’t even get ONE seat in parlement and Bally will get his second term just like that!

  5. NAKACHINDA, WHY DO YOU WANT TO REJOVENATE ARROGANCE ? Just KNOW THAT YOU ARE BECOMING MORE ARROGANT BY VIRTUAL OF PRONOUNCING INSTRUCTIONS TO TRUE MEMBERS LIKE CK. AND WE KNOW THAT YOU TO CAMPAIGN FOR D. SILITI. BUT WHATEVER YOU MAY DO THE OF SHALL NEVER AGAIN VOTE FOR A PARTY THAT HAD REDUCED Their FREEDOMS , RIGHTS AND PEACE BECAUSE OF ITS HOOLIGANISM, ARROGANCE , CORRUPTION , TRIBALISM AND RAPANT THEFTY. PLZ CK, STOP NAKACHINDA. HE IS ORGANISING ISSUES AGAINST YOU THE TRU GREENS

  6. You left out one important factor Sir. I know it is very difficult to mention it but your Party is and was very tribal. Your continued hate against the people of Western, North Western and Southern Provinces will not help you. Politically you need to do something to win their hearts than demonising them each time you open your mouth.
