A senior source within the PF has told the Zambian Watchdog that it is the main reason President Michael Sata has transferred Limata to Western Province as deputy Minister to prepare grounds for her defection.
PF insiders say the regime is desperate to show that MPs can still defect to the ruling party especially after Kalabo MP Chinga Miyutu Miyutu ditched the party and all the nice things that come with being a deputy minister.
The PF wants to stop the fast spreading views across the country that the party is no longer attractive.
Sinjembela MP Poniso Njeulu who was elected as UPND MP but now working for PF was made to pledge his loyalty to the PF last week after his former colleague Miyutu ditched the PF.
Njelu renewed his allegiance to Sata in the PF Vuvuzela based at Bwinjiunfumu.
