Recently vocal Patriotic Front Deputy Chairperson for Elections Kelvin Bwalya Fube popularly known as KBF has been fired from his party position.

Fube recently has come out calling for fresh elections in the party “from the top ro the bottom” in what he says will be a way to strengthen the PF. He has also warned that the PF risk losing elections in 2021 if it does not recognise itself.

This message has not gone well in the party, Jean Kapata who is a Member of the Central Committee and Chairperson for Elections was directed to show KBF the door. Kapata on Monday announced that KBF had been from his party position.

During the run-up to the August 2016 elections, Kapata appointed KBF as her Deputy. KBF is not a member of the Central Committee but he was one of those instrumental in the elections of President Lungu in August.

Kapata has stated that she has gotten concerned with recent media statements and activities done by her Deputy without her authority or consent.

“You issued newspaper and social statements without clearance from my office. By virtue of this letter you are required to surrender all party material and equipment that are in your possession without fail,” Kapata has ordered KBF in a letter also seen by Zambian Eye.

“From today onwards, you should not speak on behalf of the party.”

KBF recently also issued statements condemning the Lusaka City Council over its business relationship with Park Rite.

He also called for fresh elections in the entire PF stating that there was need for energy renewal “From top to bottom”, a statement that was immediately supported by Chishimba Kambwili.

On Sunday, Kapata issued a strong statement condemning the sentiments and describing the calls for fresh elections as activities designed to undermine President Edgar Lungu.
