But the MMD in Northern Province has charged that the firing of Wynter Kabimba as PF Secretary General by President Sata as an individual just shows how undemocratic the ruling party is.
In a statement to Mano News today, MMD provincial Information and Publicity secretary, Cephas Bwalya stated in a democratic party, a Secretary General cannot be fired by one person, but through the masses that elected him or her.
However, Mr. Bwalya said President Sata was in order in firing Mr. Kabimba as he is the appointing authority, considering that the all senior party positions are not held through an election.
He has since described the firing of Wynter Kabimba as PF Secretary General as regrettable and embarrassing considering that Zambia is a democratic country.
Yesterday, President Michael Sata fired Wynter Kabimba as Minister of Justice and party Secretary General.
President Sata has since appointed Edgar Lungu as new party Secretary General and Minister of Justice, in addition to his portfolio as Minister of Defence.
