By JULIUS PHIRI –
PRESIDENT Michael Sata has appointed Robert Chikwelete as the new Patriotic Front (PF) Lusaka District chairperson.
Mr Chikwelete’s appointment comes almost a week after he and Julius Komaki took over office in an interim capacity to replace the previous holders who were hounded out subsequently leading to the closure of the office on August 31, 2013.
Last week on Thursday, some PF cadres converged at the Lusaka District office where they announced the ushering in of Mr Chikwelete as interim Lusaka District chairperson.
The President has also appointed former Chipata Central Member of Parliament (MP) Lameck Mangani as the new PF Eastern Province chairperson.
Mr Mangani’s appointment follows the dissolution of the Mike Tembo -led executive about a month ago.
Mr Mangani confirmed his appointment in Lusaka yesterday, saying he received his appointment letter on Monday.
“Yes I have been appointed provincial chairperson of the PF and I received the appointment letter on Monday,” he said.
Mr Mangani said other members of the executive would be ushered in during a mini elective conference to be announced by party Secretary General Wynter Kabimba soon.
