OVER 1,006 OPPOSITION MEMBERS IN MUFULIRA DISTRICT DEFECT TO THE MIGHTY PF

Over 1,006 members from 4 opposition political parties have defected to join the ruling PF.

NDC 597, UPND 463, Socialist Party 103, DP 49 and 17 security officials from NDC.

NDC Copperbelt Youth IPS Bornface Mubanga lead the NDC defectors to join PF.

Mr. Mubanga said there is nothing that is inspiring to remain in NDC.

“There is nothing in NDC. Kuchulafye, no leadership. I can’t remain in a party that does not have any agenda for the people of Mufulira and Zambia at large,” said Mr. Mubanga.

On Saturday, NDC Copperbelt Youth Chairman Bernard Mwila resigned and joined the PF.

Other officials who lead members from different political parties included Enock Kabaso who was 2016 UPND Kawama west ward 3 aspiring councillor, Socialist Party Mufulira District Mobilization coordinator Constance Bwalya, DP Mufulira Youth vice Secretary Stephen Kandale.

Mufulira PF District Chairman Dr. Dominic Mwale said the Opposition Alliance is only on social media.

“The opposition alliance is on social media and in Lusaka, here we don’t know about the alliance. The UPND and NDC is just wasting their time here in Mufulira and Copperbelt at large,” said Dr. Mwale.

Kankoyo Member of Parliament Dr. Brian Mushimba encouraged the party to remain strong in the District.

And Copperbelt PF Chairman Nathan Chanda said President Edgar Lungu is exhibiting good leadership which is attracting thousands of people.

“The party is still growing and growing. The leadership of President Edgar Lungu is unmatched. These thousands of people coming here today shows that people believe in the leadership of President Lungu.

“On behalf of the party President Mr. Edgar Lungu, our Party Secretary General Hon. Davis Mwila and the party on the Copperbelt, we welcome you. I want the district Chairman to fully welcome pur friends and make use of them. The boat is not yet full. PF is the only party with a national character. We take development to all areas of the country,” said Mr. Chanda.

Mr. Chanda said the opposition in Zambia has failed to be the ‘government’ in waiting.

He said the opposition in Zambia are only interested in dividing the country and insulting the presidency.

“When political parties are formed, we consider them to be ‘governments’ in waiting. But alas, we don’t have such opposition parties in Zambia. We only have ‘tutemba’ parties that are specialist in dividing the country and insulting the presidency,” said Mr. Chanda.

Chairman Chanda was joined by his Vice Dr. Jonas Chanda, provincial Chairlady Rose Mukupo, Provincial youth Chairman Don Mungulube and the provincial executive committee.

During the defections at Mufulira grounds, Health guidelines of wearing facemasks and keeping social distances were strictly followed.

Later the PF Provincial Chairman appeared on a Mafukeni Radio to explain some development taking place on the Copperbelt
