PF will do anything to defend the president – Mwila

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General Davies Mwila has maintained that the ruling party “will do anything to defend President Edgar Lungu from unwarranted attacks”.

Mwila told journalists in Lusaka this morning that President Lungu is not just the Republican President, but also a Party President.

He said the party will not tolerate any more of the unwarranted attacks on the Head of State.

Mwila said the party has applied to the Zambia Police Service for a permit to take a petition to leader of the de-registered NDC Chishimba Kambwili over his alleged insults against President Lungu.

“We cannot rely on the government only to defend our President because he is the Party President. It is our duty to ensure that the name of the President is protected from any unwarranted attacks. We will not condone Chishimba Kambwili insulting the President as if we are not there, let him know that we are here to defend our leader,” he said.

“As a party and as a Secretariat, we have made a decision! Time has come to defend the President at all cost. We promised the people of Zambia that we will demonstrate for seven days. And of course we have notified the police, because we follow the law.”

The Secretary General made it clear that the party is not violating any law in petitioning Kambwili.

“Tomorrow, we are expecting Munali residents at the Secretariat who will be coming with a petition. This will continue. And on Friday, the entire Lusaka district will march to Kambwili’s Office if he has one! Or to his House to deliver a petition. We will do so within the confinement of the law as we have given notice to the Police.”

Last week, Mwila instructed PF cadres across the country to effect a citizen’s arrest on Kambwili each time he attacks President Lungu.
