The Patriotic Front Lusaka Province Acting Executive Committee has given lawyer Kelvin Bwalya Fube and controversial PF member Julius Komaki up to today May 10 to appear before the Party’s provincial disciplinary committee.
PF Lusaka Province interim chairperson Paul Moonga says the two have not appeared before the disciplinary committee despite being served with letters.
Mr. Moonga has also warned that the committee will have no option but to take disciplinary action against the duo if they do not avail themselves for hearing.
He says the PF is a democratic party and did not expel the Two but gave them an opportunity to be heard by the disciplinary committee.
Mr. Moonga was speaking to journalist at media briefing in Lusaka today.
And interim PF Lusaka province women Vice Chairlady Charity Banda said the party will not allow any divisive maneuvers among its members.
Ms. Banda said the PF is a peaceful party which believes in unity to further grow the party.
And the Patriotic Front – PF leadership in Southern Province has challenged Mr. Fube, to form his own political party if he feels he is popular.
PF Southern Province Chairperson, Lawrence Evans says the party in the region has already endorsed President Edgar Lungu as its Presidential candidate in the 2021 General Elections.
Mr. Evans says much as it may be appreciated that Mr. Fube helped with the PF constitution, there is no clause that requires President Lungu to hand over the leadership mantle to him.
He says there is no leadership vacuum in the PF and that Mr. Fube is free to leave the party with his supporters.
Mr. Evans says PF does not need individuals that are labeled as game changers of confusion.
And when contacted for a comment, Mr. Fube who is currently attending the International Consumer Protection and Enforcement Network Conference in Livingstone, said he could not talk about politics because he is in the town in his capacity as the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission-CCPC- Board Chairperson.
