LEADERSHIP ELECTIONS AND UPHELD OUR COMMITMENT
TO INTRA-PARTY DEMOCRACY AND RULE OF LAW.

3 | P a g e
THIS IS A LIVING COMMITMENT WE SET FOR OURSELVES 20
YEARS AGO, WHEN THE PATRIOTIC FRONT WAS
FOUNDED.

AS A PARTY, WE HAVE REMAINED TRUE TO OUR
COMMITMENT OF ENSURING THAT MEMBERS AT ALL
LEVELS OF THE PARTY STRUCTURES ARE FREE TO
PARTICIPATE IN THIS VERY IMPORTANT PROCESS. THIS IS
WHAT DEMOCRACY ENTAILS AND WE ARE RESOLVED TO
ABIDE BY ITS DOCTRINE IN ORDER TO ENHANCE GOOD
GOVERANCE IN THE PARTY AND THE REPUBLIC.

ONCE AGAIN, LET ME WHOLEHEARTEDLY ACCEPT THE
UNWAVERING TRUST AND CONFIDENCE MEMBERS OF
THE NATIONAL COUNCIL AS WELL AS GENERAL
CONFERENCE DEMONSTRATED YESTERDAY BY
UNINAMOUSLY ELECTING AND APPROVING ME AS PARTY
PRESIDENT AS WELL AS THE PF PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE
FOR THE GENERAL AND PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS TO BE

ALL FOR THE SUPPORT, I WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN AS
YOUR PARTY LEADER. COME AUGUST, 2021, THE PF BOAT
WILL POLITICALLY FLOAT AND SAIL THROUGH TO THE
PROMISED LAND. TRUST ME, I WILL BE HERE WITH YOU IN
VICTORY AND TRIUMPH.
DISTINGUISHED GUESTS, DELEGATES AND MEMBERS,
LET ME SPECIFICALLY ADDRESS OUR GOOD AND
DEDICATED MEMBERS OF THE PARTY WHO APPLIED AND
DID NOT MAKE IT ON THE FINAL LIST OF THE 54 MEMBERS
OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE YESTERDAY. IN THE PF, WE
MUST ALL KNOW THAT THERE ARE NO WINNERS OR
LOSERS WHEN IT COMES TO PARTY LEADERSHIP
APPOINTMENTS AND ELECTIONS. IT IS IMPORTANT FOR
EVERYONE IN THE PARTY TO ACCEPT AND DEFEND THE

4 | P a g e
RESULTS FOR YESTERDAY IN THE NAME OF TUE PARTY
DEMOCRACY, PATRIOTICISM AND LOYALTY.
FOLLOWING OUR GENERAL CONFERENCE, WE MUST
NOW DEMONSTRATE OUR TRUE PATRIOTISM AND
COMMITMENT FOR WHAT WE STAND FOR AND BELIEVE IN
THE PATRIOTIC FRONT. WITH OR WITHOUT A POSITION IN
THE PARTY, WE MUST ALL PROVE OUR ALLEGIANCE AND
LOYALTY TO THE PARTY BY DEMONSTARTING OUR PRIDE,
LOVE, DEVOTION, AND SENSE OF ATTACHMENT TO THE
PATRIOTIC FRONT. AS LONG AS YOU SEEK BELONGING
TO AND WORKING DILIGENTLY FOR THE PARTY,
RECOGNITION AND PROMOTION AWAITS YOU AT THE
OPPORTUNE TIME.
THE BIBLE IN PROVERBS 3:34, SAYS, “GOD RESISTS THE
PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE”. IN THE NEXT
FIVE (5) YEARS, I PERSONALLY PRAY TO LEAD A PARTY
WITH MEMBERS WHO ARE HUMBLE, LOYAL, UNITED,
RESPECTFUL AND DEDICATED TO LOVING AND
DEFENDING ZAMBIA. BY NOW, MUST BE AWARE THAT, IN
THE PF, WE ARE ALL EQUALL MEMBERS OF THE PARTY-MEN
OR WOMEN, YOUNG OR OLD, FOUNDER MEMBERS OR
NEW COMERS AND CHRISTIAN OR MUSLIMS. WE ARE ONE
NOBLE POLITICAL FAMILY. THEREFORE, I WANT TO APPEAL
TO ALL WELL-MEANING MEMBERS OF OUR PARTY TO
PROMOTE AND DEFEND PARTY UNITY AND ONENESS
GOING FORWARD.

DISTINGUISHED GUESTS, DELEGATES AND MEMBERS,
LET ME COMMEND THE FORMER SECRETARY GENERAL OF

OUR PARTY, HON. DAVIES MWILA AND HIS HARD-
WORKING TEAM FOR SUCCESSFULLY ORGANIZING ALL

THE 10 PROVINCIAL ELECTIVE CONFERENCES FOR THE

5 | P a g e
PARTY. I FURTHER APPLAUD OUR FORMER SECRETARY
GENERAL AND HIS ABLE TEAM FOR EFFICIENTLY
ORGANIZING THIS CONFERENCE UNDER “THE NEW
NORMAL”.

IT IS INDEED GRATIFYING THAT WE, AS THE RULING PARTY
WERE ABLE TO HOLD OUR GENERAL CONFERENCE
VIRTUALLY IN LINE WITH COVID-19 REGULATIONS,
CERTIFICATIONS AND GUIDELINES AS SET BY THE MINISTRY
OF HEALTH. THROUGH THE MANNER WE HELD OUR
NATIONAL COUNCIL AND GENERAL CONFERENCE
YESTERDAY, WE HAVE PROVEN THAT COVID-19 HAS
DRASTICALLY CHANGED HUMAN CONDUCT AND
POLITICAL SOCIALIATION.
DISTINGUISHED GUESTS, DELEGATES AND MEMBERS,
I ALSO ACKNOWLEDGE AND PAY GLOWING TRIBUTE TO
BOTH THE FIRST GENERATION AND CURRENT MEMBERS OF
OUR GREAT PARTY FOR THEIR ROLE IN MOBILISING,
ORGANISING AND GROWING THE PARTY AT ALL LEVELS.
IT IS FOR THIS REASON THAT OUR PARTY IS GROWING IN
POPULARITY BY THE DAY. GOING INTO AUGUST
ELECTIONS, LET US ALL DOUBLE OUR EFFORTS IN
MOBILIZING FOR VOTERS COUNTRYWIDE.

EACH DAY, WE CONTINUE TO WITNESS NEW MEMBERS
JOINING US ACROSS ALL REGIONS OF THE COUNTRY,
INCLUDING IN THE SO-CALLED OPPOSITION
STRONGHOLDS. MORE AND MORE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE ARE
BELIEVING IN US, WHAT WE STAND FOR AND WHAT WE
MEAN FOR OUR CITIZENS. THIS IS VERY ENCOURAGING.

6 | P a g e
AS PRESIDENT OF THE PATRIOTIC FRONT, I WISH TO THANK
AND CONGRATULATE THE LEADERSHIP AND THE ENTIRE
MEMBERSHIP OF THE MOBILIZATION COMMITTEE AND
SECRETARIATE FOR WORKING TIRELESSLY TO GROW OUR
PARTY. THE RESULTS OF YOUR EFFORTS ARE
UNPARALLELED AND ARE THERE FOR ALL OF US TO SEE.
CONTINUE WITH YOUR GOOD WORK. A WARM
WELCOME TO ALL THOSE THAT HAVE MADE THE WISE
DECISION TO JOIN OUR PARTY SO FAR. YOU HAVE MADE
THE RIGHT CHOICE. YOU MEAN A LOT TO US AND THE
PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA. WE LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING
WITH YOU ON OUR SURE PATH TO VICTORY THIS YEAR.

I URGE ALL THOSE WHO ARE YET TO JOIN US TO DO SO
NOW WITHOUT FURTHER HESITATION. IT WILL BE THE
GREATEST DECISION YOU WILL HAVE MADE. A DECISION
YOU WILL CHERISH FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIVES. A
DECISION WHICH WILL PUT YOU ON THE RIGHT PATH TO
CONTRIBUTE, IN CONCRETE TERMS, TOWARDS THE
DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR COUNTRY, OUR COUNTRY. DO
NOT BE A BYSTANDER OR AN ARMCHAIR CRITIC
FOREVER. THERE IS ENOUGH ROOM FOR YOU IN ALL
STRUCTURES AND LEVELS OF OUR PARTY IN EVERY PART
AND REGION OF OUR GREAT COUNTRY. JOIN THE
MOVING AND GROWING VEHICLE, JOIN THE PATRIOTIC
FRONT.

DISTINGUISHED GUESTS, DELEGATES AND MEMBERS,
AS A PRO-POOR PARTY, WE SHALL CONTINUE TO
DEMONSTRATE OUR RESOLVE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST
POVERTY AND VULNERABILITY AMONG THE
MARGINALISED SECTIONS OF OUR SOCIETY. WE SHALL
CONTINUE TO SCALE UP THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE

7 | P a g e
SOCIAL CASH TRANSFER, THE FOOD SECURITY PACK, THE
EMERGENCY CASH TRANSFER SCHEME AND SUPPORTING
WOMEN’S LIVELIHOODS.

TODAY, WE CAN BOAST OF APPROXIMATELY 4.2 MILLION
POOR AND VULNERABLE PEOPLE, ACROSS THE COUNTRY,
BENEFITING FROM THESE SOCIAL PROTECTION
PROGRAMMES. THIS IS A CLEAR INDICATION THAT YOUR
PATRIOTIC FRONT GOVERNMENT IS LIVING UP TO ITS
COMMITMENT OF NOT LEAVING ANYONE BEHIND.

THE PATRIOTIC FRONT ADMINISTRATION WILL CONTINUE
IMPLEMENTING THESE SOCIAL PROTECTION
PROGRAMMES. WE WILL PAY PARTICULAR ATTENTION TO
BROADENING COVERAGE AND SCOPE OF THE

PROGRAMMES SO AS TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE WELL-
BEING OF ALL VULNERABLE ZAMBIANS IN NEED OF

WELFARE AND LIVELIHOOD SUPPORT.

DISTINGUISHED GUESTS, DELEGATES AND MEMBERS,

WE SHALL ENSURE DOMESTIC WORKERS, DRIVERS, SHOP-
KEEPERS AND GENERAL WORKERS ENJOY IMPROVED

SALARIES AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE FOLLOWING THE
AMENDMENT OF THE MINIMUM WAGES AND
CONDITIONS OF EMPLOYMENT ACT.

DISTINGUISHED GUEST, DELEGATES AND MEMBERS,
THE PATRIOTIC FRONT GOVERNMENT IS A STRONG
BELIEVER IN GENDER EQUALITY. WE SHALL ENSURE THAT
WOMEN EQUALLY CONTRIBUTE TO OUR SUCCESS STORY,
BY BEING ROUND THE TABLE OF KEY DECISION-MAKING
PROCESSES. FOR THIS REASON, I WILL CONTINUE TO

8 | P a g e
APPOINT WOMEN IN POSITIONS OF AUTHORITY AND
INFLUENCE.

WE SHALL CONVERSELY CONTINUE TO EMPOWER THE

GIRL-CHILD AND WOMEN WITH APPROPRIATE SKILLS-
TRAINING, EQUIPMENT AND EMPOWERMENT

OPPORTUNITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

DISTINGUISHED GUESTS, DELEGATES AND MEMBERS,
OVER THE YEARS, THE PATRIOTIC FRONT GOVERNMENT
HAS IMPLEMENTED VARIOUS YOUTH EMPOWERMENT
PROGRAMMES AND PROJECTS. I ASSURE THE YOUNG
ENTREPRENEURS IN THIS COUNTRY OF CONTINUED
SUPPORT AS MY GOVERNMENT HAS DEMONSTRATED
THAT WE BELIEVE IN INCLUSIVE GOVERNANCE AND
EMPOWERMENT.

DISTINGUISHED GUESTS, DELEGATES AND MEMBERS,
DON’T FORGET THAT THE BIGGER PICTURE IS TO SERVE
OUR PEOPLE – THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE. THE ZAMBIAN
PEOPLE ARE STILL IN LOVE WITH US AND WE LOVE THEM
BACK. WE HAVE COME A LONG WAY TOGETHER AND
WE MUST NOT DEPART FROM OUR VALUES, WHAT WE
ARE. WE ARE A PRO-POOR PARTY.

ON THURSDAY, 12TH AUGUST, 2021 THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE
WILL HAVE A CHOICE TO MAKE. TO CHOOSE BETWEEN A
PARTY THAT IS TRULY THEIRS TO LEAD THEM, OR, CHOOSE
A SECTION OF PEOPLE THAT REPRESENTS INTERESTS OF
THEIR SPONSORS AND A SECTARIAN MOVEMENT.

9 | P a g e
FOR A LONG TIME, WE HAVE SEEN THIS DURING
ELECTIONS THAT CERTAIN FOREIGN INTERESTS GATHER
AROUND, ROOT FOR, AND FINANCE OUR FRIENDS TO
WIN ELECTIONS. THEY HAVE NEVER WON BECAUSE
ZAMBIANS ARE WISER AND CANNOT BE CHEATED OR
FOOLED.

CONTRAST THIS WITH THE SUPPORT OF OUR OWN PEOPLE,
ROOTED IN THE BELIEF THAT WE CANNOT LET THEM
DOWN. THEY SUPPORT US, AND VOTE FOR US AND WE
HAVE BEEN WINNING ELECTIONS. THIS IS WHY I MAKE THIS
PROMISE TO THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE, THAT COME
ELECTION DAY, GO OUT IN NUMBERS TO VOTE FOR US SO
THAT WE CONTINUE WORKING TO IMPROVE YOUR
WELFARE. YOU ARE THE REASON I SPEND SLEEPLESS
NIGHTS FOR SO THAT WE, TOGETHER, FIND COMMON
SOLUTIONS TO OUR PROBLEMS.
AND REMEMBER, I AM SAYING, TOGETHER WE FIND
SOLUTIONS TO OUR PROBLEMS. OUR OPPONENT, DO
NOT BELIEVE IN THAT PRINCIPLE. THEY BELIEVE THEY HAVE
ALL SOLUTIONS TO YOUR PROBLEMS. CONTRAST WITH
OUR PARTY, THE PATRIOTIC FRONT, WE DON’T BELIEVE
THAT WE ARE THE MOST KNOWLEDGEABLE ZAMBIANS.
OUR BIGGEST WEAPON ARE THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA
WHO WE HUMBLY SERVE, AND THEY GIVE US LOYALTY
AND SUPPORT. IN FACT, THE ONLY UBIQUITOUS BEING WE
KNOW OF IN THE PARTY IS THE ALMIGHTY GOD.

ON THURSDAY, 12TH AUGUST, 2021, THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE
WILL HAVE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN TESTED LEADERSHIP
AND VERY UNTESTED LEADERSHIP. AND BY TESTED
LEADERSHIP I MEAN, A MAN WHO HAS SERVED IN BOTH

10 | P a g e
PRIVATE AND GOVERNMENT SECTORS AT THE HIGHEST
LEVEL. I HAVE SERVED IN CONGLOMERATES SUCH AS
ZCCM WHERE LEADERSHIP WAS INTEGRATED TO ALL THE
ECHELONS OF THE CORPORATION;

I HAVE WORKED IN BARCLAYS BANK WHERE
MANAGEMENT AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE IS OF
THE HIGHEST STANDARD; AND I HAVE WORKED IN
GOVERNMENT, WHERE PROCEEDURE IS UNSHAKABLE.
AND IN GOVERNMENT, I SERVED AS MEMBER OF
PARLIAMENT FOR CHAWAMA CONSTITUENCY; THEN
DEPUTY MINISTER IN THE OFFICE OF THE VICE PRESIDENT;
THE MINISTER OF HOME AFFAIRS; THEN MINISTER OF
JUSTICE; THEN MINISTER OF DEFENCE, AND THEN
PRESIDENT.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, MEMBERS OF THE PATRIOTIC
FRONT,
THAT IS A HELL LOT OF EXPERIENCE!
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? WHERE I COME FROM, WE ARE
TAUGHT NEVER TO BOAST. SO WE DON’T TALK TOO
MUCH. BUT YOU WILL HEAR THEM COME TO YOU AND
TELL YOU THEY ARE ECONOMISTS, LAWYERS, DOCTORS
OR THEY ARE BUSINESSMEN, WHAT CAN YOU TELL THEM?
THEY KNOW IT ALL. THEY TELL US, THEY ARE RICH, AND THE
REST WHO WORK HARD TO SUCCEED, THEY BRAND THEM
THIEVES.
THEY BRAND US TRIBALISTS WHEN WE APPOINT NAMES
THEY DON’T IDENTIFY WITH OR DON’T LIKE. IT REMINDS ME
OF MY GROWING UP ON THE COPPERBELT, WHERE WE
DIDN’T KNOW TRIBE. WHERE WE LIVED IN REAL
COMMUNITIES AND LEARNT TO SHARE IF YOU HAVE.

11 | P a g e
THESE ARE VALUES YOU CAN NEVER DO AWAY WITH
REGARDLESS OF YOUR STATUS IN LIFE. THESE ARE VALUES I
WANT EMBRACED IN OUR COMMUNITIES. THESE ARE
VALUES I WILL LIVE WITH FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.
YESTERDAY, OUR GENERAL CONFERENCE SUCCESSFULLY
APPROVED MY “ONE ZAMBIA, ONE NATION” LIST OF
MEMBERS OF THE PARTY CENTRAL COMMITTEE. FROM THE
LIST, EVERYONE IS A WITNESS THAT ALL OUR PROVINCES,
REGIONS, ETHNICITY AND GENDER WERE CAREFULLY
SELECTED AND WELL BALANCED WITHOUT LEAVING
ANYONE BEHIND. IN PF, THERE ARE NO BIG OR SMALL
REGIONS OR TRIBES; WE ARE ONE POLITICAL FAMILY
UNDER “ONE ZAMBIA, ONE NATION”. IN THE PATRIOTIC
FRONT, WE DON’T JUST TALK AGAINST TRIBALISM LIKE
OTHERS, WE ACT AGAINST IT WITH ALL OUR MIGHTY, SOUL
AND DEEDS.

DISTINGUISHED GUESTS, DELEGATES AND MEMBERS,
WITH THE EXPERIENCE WE HAVE GAINED IN DELIVERING A
BETTER LIFE TO ZAMBIANS, IT IS ONLY RIGHT THAT WE
CONTINUE TO LEAD THIS NATION TO SUSTAINED
PROSPERITY. AS A PARTY IN GOVERNMENT, WE HAVE
DEMONSTRATED UNWAVERING COMMITMENT TO OUR
VISION OF BUILDING A PROSPEROUS, UNITED,
DEMOCRATIC AND INCLUSIVE ZAMBIA FOR ALL.

WE HAVE DEMONSTRATED, OVER THE LAST TEN YEARS,
THAT WE ARE EQUAL TO THE TASK OF NATIONAL
DEVELOPMENT AS WELL AS NATIONAL BUILDING.
OUR EXPERIENCE HAS EQUIPPED US WITH SKILLS AND
WISDOM TO TAKE THIS COUNTRY TO GREATER HEIGHTS.
WE WILL BUILD ON THE MOMENTUM THAT WE HAVE
ACHIEVED SO FAR. THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO EXPERIMENT
WITH LEADERSHIP. I CALL UPON ALL THOSE WHOSE

12 | P a g e
INTEREST IS TO SERVE THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA TO COME
AND JOIN US.

DISTINGUISHED GUESTS, DELEGATES AND MEMBERS,
THE PATRIOTIC FRONT REMAINS AN ALL-INCLUSIVE PARTY,
WITHOUT ANY DUE REGARD TO ONE’S TRIBE, CREED OR
COLOUR. WHILE OUR MEMBERSHIP IS DIVERSE, WE HAVE
REMAINED UNITED, EVEN WHEN THERE HAVE BEEN
ATTEMPTS TO DIVIDE US. WE WILL SURELY REMAIN UNIFIED
AS OURS IS A SONG OF UNITY, AS EXEMPLIFIED BY THE
ONE ZAMBIA, ONE NATION MOTTO.
WE ARE OPEN TO OLD AND NEW MEMBERS. WE ARE
ALWAYS READY TO UNCONDITIONALLY WELCOME BACK
THOSE THAT MAY HAVE STRAYED. WE, IN THE PATRIOTIC
FRONT, HAVE ALSO EMBRACED NEW MEMBERS FROM
OTHER POLITICAL PARTIES WHO BELIEVE IN OUR
PRINCIPLES AND VALUES. IN PF, ALL AND EVERYONE IS
WELCOME.

I AM CONFIDENT THAT OUR PARTY WILL REMAIN IN
POWER AFTER THE AUGUST, 2021 ELECTIONS. THE PEOPLE
OF ZAMBIA HAVE FAITH IN OUR PARTY. EQUALLY, THE
TRADITIONAL LEADERSHIP, THE CHURCH AND CIVIL
SOCIETY HAVE SHOWN WILLINGNESS TO CONTINUE
WORKING WITH US IN AN EFFORT TO DEVELOP THIS
COUNTRY. WE WILL CONTINUE TO LISTEN TO THEIR
WISDOM AND COUNSEL AS WELL AS THE PEOPLE’S
CONCERNS TO BETTER DELIVER ON OUR FRESH
MANDATE.

13 | P a g e
DISTINGUISHED GUESTS, DELEGATES AND MEMBERS,
LET US CELEBRATE OUR PARTY AND ITS ACHIEVEMENTS.
LET US NOT GET DISCOURAGED BUT RATHER BE
MOTIVATED BY OUR CRITICS. LET US SOLDIER ON IN OUR
DEVELOPMENT AGENDA. TOGETHER, WE WILL SURELY
TRANSFORM THE LIVES OF OUR PEOPLE. SO FAR, SO
GOOD. WE ARE DETERMINED TO DO EVEN BETTER.

THE NEW LEADERSHIP FROM THIS CONFERENCE WILL
HAVE THE NOBLE TASK OF UNITING AND MOBILISING THE
PARTY TOWARDS THE AUGUST 2021 ELECTIONS. THERE IS
NO TIME TO WASTE. WE EXPECT TO WORK WITH ALL
MEMBERS OF THE PARTY. THE CREDIBILITY OF
YESTERDAY’S ELECTION WILL BE MARKED BY HOW WE
CONDUCT OURSELVES AFTER THIS CONFERENCE. LET US
EMERGE STRONGER THAN EVER BEFORE AS A UNITED
FAMILY, THE PATRIOTIC FRONT.
DISTINGUISHED GUESTS, DELEGATES AND MEMBERS,
WE MUST ALL GO FLAT OUT AND MOBILISE MORE
MEMBERS AND VOTERS AS THERE ARE NO WINNERS OR
LOSERS IN PF. LET US AIM AND WORK HARDER FOR A
LANDSLIDE VICTORY FOR OURSELVES AS A PARTY. WE
HAVE THE SUPPORT OF THE ZAMBIAN PEOPLE. LET US,
WITH WARM HEARTS, WELCOME BACK OLD MEMBERS
THAT LEFT THE PARTY FOR VARIOUS REASONS. LET US
EMBRACE THOSE JOINING US FROM OTHER POLITICAL
PARTIES. THE FUTURE OF THE PATRIOTIC FRONT PARTY IS IN
OUR HANDS; AND THE FUTURE OF THE PATRIOTIC FRONT IS
POLITICALLY BRIGHTER.

14 | P a g e
I NOW DECLARE THE PATRIOTIC FRONT ELECTIVE
GENERAL CONFERENCE OFFICIALLY CLOSED AND WISH
ALL THOSE TRAVELLING, JOURNEY MERCIES AND GRACE
FROM ABOVE.

I THANK YOU ALL AND GOD BLESS YOU.
