him,” said the source.
And sources wishing the PF revealed that there is panic among senior party officials with the support Sata is receiving from even those who where once his perceived enemies.
“For some of us we are worried because especially if this man formed government we don’t know what he has promised these people like Mike Mulongoti, Mbita Chitala, George Mpombo, Fred Mmembe Post Editor in chief and other big guys and there others who are yet to come out in the open to declare their support just like Ba Miyanda,” the source told the Watchdog.
