PF lawyer and Kabwe Central MP Tutwa Ngulube has added his voice to many Zambians who have opposed dictator Edgar Lungu’s schemes to breach the constitution and contest the 2021 Presidency. Other prominent PF leaders to oppose Lungu’s ambitions are former ministers Chishimba Kambwili and Mwenya Musenge.
On his facebook page, Ngulube castigated the agenda for Lungu to contest the 2021 elections at the expense of service delivery. He has maintained that at the moment PF has got no Presidential candidate for 2021 and that the ongoing countrywide endorsements are unnecessary because there are no elections this year
“Those early endorsements are unnecessary right now as we don’t have elections this year. We still have to wait for a time when party campaigns will be opened.” I thank you, stated Ngulube.
And Kambwili has reiterated that the only institution that can elect a PF president as guided in the constitution is the party general conference and if Lungu has performed that is when he shall be judged. He said that the PF risks collapsing like the MMD if the party continues bickering on who contests the 2021. Lungu has since pre maturely kick started his 2021 Presidential campaigns and has been on a countrywide tour dishing out stolen money to cadres.
But the criticism has angered Lungu who now wants everyone questioning his illegalities is either jailed or fired fired and expelled from the party. In a conversation extracted from State house Lungu has been upset by remarks of the lawyer who declared him winner at the controversial 2014 conference and now wants him out of the party. Lungu has directed that Mgulube and other ‘controversial, officials be ejected from the PF.
