Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General Davies Mwila has maintained that ex-United Party for National Development (UPND) vice president Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba, better known as GBM, has been welcomed with open arms.

His remarks come in a wake of speculation and rumours that PF has not bothered to welcome back GBM after his defection from the main opposition party.

There has been alot of speculation after GBM, who was a very senior member of the biggest opposition party as Vice President was received by a PF Provincial Chairman Paul Moonga. The PF has a rule that whoever left the party must apply and wait for a period of three years before being readmitted as a member.

But Mwila has dispelled sentiments suggesting otherwise and insisted that GBM has been received with both arms.

He says contrary to social media speculation, the Patriotic Front has welcomed the former UPND Vice President with open arms and that the ruling party is keen to work with GBM in its grassroots mobilisation.

Mwila was speaking from Kalumbila district in North Western Province over the weekend.

And when receiving defectors from UPND, FDD and MMD, Mwila commended PF North Western Province Chairman Jackson Kungo for mobilising the party in the area.

“I commend you Chairman Kungo, member of the Central Committee, for your hardwork and dedication to party mobilisation which has resulted in the PF’s victory in the majority of the by-elections held here in North Western. We now have 12 new Councillors on the PF in the region and soon, I will be coming back to meet and encourage them as we mobilise the party towards the 2021 general elections. We must remember that the strength of any political party is in its ability to effectively mobilise and win the elections,” Mwila said.
