PF Lusaka Province Chairperson Geoffrey Chumbwe said there is no need for people to start endorsing President Sata as the PF’s candidate for the 2016 general elections.
In what is seemingly a direct attack on Defence Minister, Geoffrey Mwamba, Chumbwe said all those endorsing the President are bringing confusion in the party.
He argued that there is no need for people to claim of wanting to endorse President Sata because he is the auntomaitic candidate for the party in 2016.
Chumbwe who was speaking during the launch of the women’s league in Sibunyunji District on Monday August 5,2013 has also questioned the motives behind which people are endorsing the President.
“If you claim to be endorsing Presuident Sata, that is just causing confusion because he has three yaers to go into his one full term and another full five term in 2016.” Chumbwe said
“If anyone wants to endorse him let them do so when he wants to run for a third term, but as things are he is the automatic choice” he added.
Defence Minister Geoffrey Mwamba who is also PF Kasama Central Member of Parliament is reportedly going round endorsing President Sata.
He started this campaign in Chipata and was during the weekend in Kasama where he continued with a warning on all party members that Kasama will be a no go area for other people with motives of campaigning for party Presidency.
