The Patriotic Front (PF) Copperbelt Provincial leadership has warned of disciplinary action against members instigating in-fighting within the party structures.
ZANIS reports that Copperbelt Province PF Mobilisation Coordinator Bowman Lusambo said President Edgar Lungu wants to build a strong, united and coordinated party ahead of the 2021 general elections.
Mr Lusambo who is Lusaka Province Minister said the ruling party wants to conduct issue based campaigns during the run up to the general elections.
“Part of the PF campaign strategy is to market our achievements under President Lungu as tangible developmental projects have been undertaken across the country,” he said.
Mr Lusambo said this during the mobilisation meetings with party officials in Luanshya and Masaiti Districts.
He advised members to concentrate on marketing the party as opposed to engaging in in-fighting within the structures.
“Avoid fighting among yourselves as officials because we will not hesitate to discipline you. Let us focus on marketing our achievements under the leadership of President Lungu when we begin to campaign for the 2021 general elections,” Mr Lusambo said.
He added that party officials should work as a united force in order to attract more people to join the party.
Mr Lusambo said party leaders should also correct one another whenever mistakes are made.
And PF Copperbelt Provincial Chairperson Nathan Chanda said people in the region are interested in politics of development and not name calling and character assassination.
Mr Chanda who is also Luanshya Mayor said this is why some people who belonged to opposition political parties are joining the ruling party.
Meanwhile, the mobilisation team has given K110, 000 revolving fund to traders at Luanshya’s Mpatamatu and Roan markets.
Mr Chanda said the funds are aimed at empowering market traders and boost their businesses.
