The Patriotic Front (PF) has issued a statement assuring its members that there is no leadership vacuum within the party. The statement was issued in response to concerns raised by the ongoing court process instigated by Honorable Miles Sampa against the party and its leadership.
According to the statement, the injunction obtained by Honorable Sampa is a temporal ex-parte order and the Patriotic Front will have an opportunity to defend itself during an inter-parte hearing on February 16th, 2023. The party will have the chance to counter the allegations leveled against it and its leadership.
The National Chairperson of the Patriotic Front, Honorable Davies Chama, emphasized that the party’s leadership remains intact, with Honorable Given Lubinda serving as Vice President and Honorable Nickson Chilangwa serving as Deputy Secretary General. Chama assured members that the party will continue to operate normally under Lubinda’s leadership and that no one should spread rumors of paralysis within the party.
The statement concludes by saying that the Patriotic Front remains committed to serving its members and will continue to operate as usual, despite the ongoing court process. The party is confident that the truth will come to light during the inter-parte hearing and that it will emerge unscathed from the allegations made against it.
