There is more confusion in the Patriotic Front as former Defense Minister Geofrey Bwalya Mwamba (GBM) and Roads Development Agency (RDA) Board Chairperson Willie Nsanda have been linked to a new ploy to unseat current Party Secretary General Edgar Lungu.
Intelligence sources have disclosed that the two have been linked to the establishment of the fake Face Book page for Edgar Lungu launching his 2016 Presidential bid.
“There is confusion in the PF. Investigations conducted to ascertain who established the fake Face Book page for Honourable Edgar Lungu indicate that GBM and Willie Nsanda facilitated the creation of the face book page,” the source said.
The source said a report has since been prepared for President Michael Sata. Further the source said the Kasama parliamentarian wants to completely take over the PF.
“GBM wants to completely take over PF. There is confusion. Edgar Lungu may be hounded out the same way Wynter Kabimba was chased. It is serious and it will be serious in the coming weeks,” the source said.
The intelligence source said the whole purpose of creating the fake Face Book page for Edgar Lungu was to portray him to President Michael Sata as a very ambitious person.
The actual creation of the Facebook account was done by one former permanent Secretary working with GBM, according to intelligence sources.
Sources sas when Lungu was appointed Secretary General, GBM thought the Chawama MP would be content with that position. But GBM and others realised later that Lungu also wants the presidency.
