It is unfortunate that President Edgar Lungu and some of our colleagues in the party are hell bent on mutilating our party constitution and completely bequeathing it to their new found friends from the MMD and specifically Rupiah Banda. We are saddened as founder member of the party to see that the party is being hijacked and now they even want to rape the party constitution in terms of the mandate of Edgar Lungu. Edgar Lungu was only a transitional president of the party. If Edgar wants to be the candidate for 2016, he will need to seek a fresh legal and legitimate mandate from the membership.
Every right-thinking and sincere member of the party will recall that what was held in Kabwe after the death of our party President Michael Sata was an extra-ordinary Conference, which also cannot be called legitimate and legal. Edgar Lungu was imposed on the party by some selfish and self-serving people who wanted to use him and those that feared to lose positions in Government.
The Party Secretary General, Davis Chama is completely off line to claim that those who want to challenge Edgar must wait until 2019! Listening to Chama on Hot FM this morning made those of us that have toiled for this party very sad. As a party we need to have a proper convention this year (2015) to elect leaders. We cannot continue with the status core as it is where the party is run like it is a personal to holder party owned by Edgar. For stability, we need to have all the positions elected. If they want to destroy PF let them continue and put Edgar as the candidate in 2016. The Zambian people are fast losing confidence in our party and reformation is key. It is Crystal clear for all to see that the ideas on which we founded PF have been lost. The same things we preached against and the same things Zambians detested in 2011 are the ones we are embracing.
It is very clear that we need to reform as a party and we need elections if the Zambian people are to give us another mandate. I want to call upon all well meaning members of the PF to stand up and rescue the party.
Sad founder member!
Lungu has destroyed the party, founder members demand convention
