The Patriotic Front (PF) in Lusaka has demanded that former Solwezi East Member of Parliament Richard Taima exculpates himself or leave the ruling party over allegations that he de-campaigned the PF in the Solwezi East by-election which the ruling party lost.
The PF have also been blaming the Electoral Commission of Zambia to save face for losing three parliamentary by-elections.
This follows media reports suggesting that the PF lost in Solwezi East because Mr. Taima allegedly took a part in campaigning against the PF.
PF Lusaka District Chairperson Goodson Banda says the party in Lusaka will not allow traitors to infiltrate it to the detriment of the party’s well being.
Mr. Banda has appealed to the PF leadership to look into the allegations against Mr. Taima and make a prompt decision if such allegations are proven true.
Mr. Banda has told QFM News that such allegations if proven to be true will be an indication of how ungrateful Mr. Taima is, especially that despite the party not adopting him to contest the by-election, President Michael Sata had already offered him another job.
