Lungu has being advised that he cannot talk about working with new PF members when he is not working with already existing party members.
The Operation Young Vote (OYV) has urged President Lungu to also realize that it is the old PF members that can easily get him out of power if he continues to sideline them.
Executive Director Guess Nyirenda says his organization is of the view that President Lungu should be mindful that new PF members are most likely to be interested more in eating than in seeing the PF remain in power.
Mr. Nyirenda has told Qfm News in an interview that this means that President Lungu should desist from frustrating old members of his party by sidelining them.
