Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General Wynter Kabimba says he has no idea about Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda’s insinuations that there are some leaders in the ruling party that are positioning themselves for republican presidency despite there being no vacancy.
Mr. Chikwanda has been recently quoted suggesting that it is these leaders who are positioning themselves that have also launched a media campaign against him over his alleged dealings with mining companies.
But Mr. Kabimba, who is also Justice Minister, has told Qfm news in a brief telephone interview that as far as the party is concerned there is no such thing of some leaders positioning themselves for presidency.
He says this is why questions that are being referred to him as party Chief Executive Officer to confirm or dispute Mr. Chikwanda’s insinuations should be instead directed to the Finance Minister himself.
Mr. Kabimba says this is because he is not the one that has made the insinuations.
