Patriotic Front President Edgar Lungu has chosen his Minister of Health Chitalu Chilufya as his successor if his desire to go for a third term fails.
A senior Intelligence Officer has disclosed this in a rare interview with the Zambian Watchdog. The source said Edgar Lungu made the decision the day his mentor Robert Gabriel Mugabe resigned. ” You know we have to be briefed on every move he makes. He thinks the Constitutional Court may disappoint him by ruling that he is not eligible to stand so he has settled for Dr. Chitalu Chilufya” the source said. The source said this is the more reason why Lungu appointed Dr. Chilufya as Member of the Central Committe of the World’s most corrupt party the Patriotic Front. Three days ago Lungu appointed Chilufya and PF Information Minister Kampamba Mulenga as Members of the Central Committee replacing Chishimba Kambwili and Mwenya Musenge who have formed a splinter party. The announcement was made by ailing PF Secretary General Davis Mwila. Chilufya is Mansa Central Member of Parliament and at the centre of the US 288000 Ambulance procurement by Savenda Limited.
