Given Lubinda Calls for Discipline and Unity in PF as Zambians Look for Alternative Leadership

Share

Patriotic Front Acting President Hon. Given Lubinda spoke to the Central Committee in Lusaka yesterday, addressing the deep-seated economic and social challenges currently facing the nation. He expressed his belief that Zambians are looking to the Patriotic Front for alternative leadership and solutions to these issues.

Lubinda expressed concern about the escalating cost of living in Zambia due to the rise in prices of essential goods and services, and warned that the government’s failure to properly implement the Farmer-Input Support Programme (FISP) has threatened national food security. He also criticized the New Dawn government for failing to resolve the country’s challenges and using the Patriotic Front as a scapegoat for their own shortcomings.

Additionally, Lubinda expressed concern about the numerous presidential trips that President Hakainde Hichilema has undertaken despite the serious economic crisis faced by the country, stating that many of these meetings could have been handled by ambassadors and ministers.

In light of these issues, Lubinda called for discipline and unity within the Patriotic Front party. He emphasized that discipline is necessary for the party to stand together and move forward as a force of change for the benefit of the country.

The Central Committee also received an apology from Matero Member of Parliament and Member of the Central Committee over remarks made during a press conference on January 28th, 2023 that had caused concern among party members. The matter was referred to the Acting President for further action.

The Central Committee also reviewed and ratified sub-committees on Energy, Local Government and Housing, Industry, Commerce and Community Development, and received an update from Acting Secretary General Hon Nixon Chilangwa on an ongoing audit of party membership. A disciplinary action against Hon. Robert Chabinga, Member of Parliament for Mafinga Constituency, was also announced over disparaging remarks and conduct against the party, and the matter was referred to the Disciplinary Committee for further action.

In a statement released by Hon. Raphael Nakacinda, Chairman for Information and Publicity of the Patriotic Front, the Central Committee also gave itself 30 days to consider and possibly adopt a draft of the party Constitution before presenting it for ratification at an Extra-Ordinary Conference.

  1. MR. LUBINDA , YOUR CALL IS GOOD BUT THE PROBLEM IS THAT MOST OF THE KEY LEADERS ARE ALREADY BAPTIZED AND VERY MUCH ROOTED IN VARIOUS FORMS OF EVIL ISMS. LIE CORRUPTION, THIEERY, CADR ISM, ARROGANCE , AND THE LIKE. FO THEM TO CHANGE YOU WILL NEED 40 PASTORS FROM NIGERIA TO COME AND FAST AND PRAY FOR YOUR PARTY FOR 40 DAYS AND 40 NIGHTS , OTHERWISE NO CHANCE SHALL BE THERE . AND ALL HOPES SHLL COME TO PASS IN VAIN

  2. The PF needs serious introspection if it’s to remain relevant to Zambia’s politics. Most of the people that are vying to succeed ECL shouldn’t have even been allowed to file their nomination. It was a show of weakness to have allowed those that had left the Party and campaigned against it for contest for the topmost position. If any of those wins at the elective convention, that’ll mark the end of the Party. How will they defend the PF having made those scathing attacks not so long ago? Senior members must also term their mouths. Some are better of quiet, especially Miles Sampa. It’s difficult because Given Lubinda is a weak acting President. Inonge Wina shouldn’t have retired so early, she could’ve easily overseen this transition

  3. I have just realized that Ncwala ceremony is next month so this Mpezeni guy went to State House asking for brown envelopes…Mpezeni is the most corrupt and crooked chief in Zambia…he is known for sleeping with under age girls

  5. “The Central Committee also received an apology from Matero Member of Parliament and Member of the Central Committee over remarks made during a press conference on January 28th, 2023 that had caused concern among party members. The matter was referred to the Acting President for further action.!
    This is everything that is wrong with PF no governance at all…a matter is referred to a commitee but the bounce it back to one man who is in Acting capacity…really laughable.

  6. This is a party that is going to elect a President and this coward Bo Lubinda has been talking about in external matters like Presidential trips…Presidential candidates supposingly paid K250,000 each and not a mention. This is why I say those payments were a money laundering scheme and the election will be just a formality; they dont say anything about outgoing President meaning the door is open for Lazy Lungu.

  7. Bo Lubinda am sure now you have seen how Zambians who are not in Politics survive….it’s rough…no Govt tenders just fending for themselves….and Nalumango is even telling suffering Zambians to eat roller meal…..whilst Ministers are getting
    free groceries from overseas…

  8. People to decide whom they want as leader. Leadership can make or tear down the livelihood of people. How do you measure those who jump from party to party causing leadership wrangles?
