Eastern Province PF officials differ over when forthcoming party convention

Feature Politics Eastern Province PF officials differ over when forthcoming party convention

Eastern Province Patriotic Front senior officials have differed over their views on whether the forthcoming party convention must take place.

While PF Provincial Information and Publicity Secretary, William Phiri, wants the convention not to go ahead in June, the Provincial Chairperson Andrew Lubusha is for the view that the June convention must go ahead.

In a statement to ZANIS, Mr Phiri said the party should consider postponing the party convention that is due to take place in June to allow time to deal.

Mr Phiri also wants the rebranding process that the party has embarked on to achieve the desired results.

He said the different factions that have emerged so far may cause mayhem at the convention and disturb the activities of the party.

Mr Phiri further mentioned that the party cannot afford to elect some leaders into sensitive positions when they are facing allegations of corruption.

“The party cannot afford to elect some leaders into sensitive positions when they are facing very serious allegations of corruption otherwise the rebranding process won’t have any meaning at all,” he said.

The Eastern Province Information and Publicity Secretary insisted that the party should consider postponing the convention and concentrate on strengthening the lower structures and preach the message of unity and hard work.

He warned that the party risks going into oblivion if the rebranding process is not well handled.

But when contacted for a comment, Eastern Province PF Provincial Chairperson, Andrew Lubusha said what Mr Phiri said was not the position of the party in the province but his personal opinion.

Mr Lubusha said his Provincial Information and Publicity Secretary issued the statement without blessings from the party leadership hence it should be taken as his personal opinion.

  1. The PF is its own biggest enemy. The greed by chancers and other characters to take over the Party is what should worry the members. It doesn’t make sense to spend in excess of K5.0M on a convention that has only one agenda item and that’s the election of ECL’s successor. It’ll be ideal to hold a convention that’ll open up all positions for election, that might help with rebranding as a totally new team takes over. Otherwise it’s better for them to wait until towards the next general election. I’m sure by then most opportunists would’ve fallen out on their own.

  2. Hey Stup!d KZ, can’t you help? It seems your party friends only know how to split the looted money, but they can’t even agree on when to vote for a successor to that thieving Edgar China Lungu! We want them to agree on CK so he can make sure the party will never ever gets even ONE seat in 2026!

  3. No corruption stop embarrassing yourself. Shut the front door if you have nothing worth saying.

  4. Definitely need rebranding! Trouble is, PF people don’t listen! Tables will not be turned as long as the old school remain. No one wants to see the same old faces & hear the same old stories. Stop the infighting & revamp the PF image, so that certain disliked profiles associated with failure, are not seen to be (still) at the helm. Promote PF as a party for all members – not one man cult. Use promotion strategy that doesn’t use one man’s face on Chitenges & t-shirts. We are in 2022 – times have moved!

    #plant a tree please.

  6. “Mr Phiri further mentioned that the party cannot afford to elect some leaders into sensitive positions when they are facing allegations of corruption.”

    Phiri you should be more concerned if your party can even afford to hold the party…have you noticed how the chancers have gone cold like A. Mwanza, Sunday, Paul Moonga and GBM.
