PF Thugs at state houseAs calls to have Kabwata Member of Parliament Given Lubinda from the ruling Patriotic Front intensify, PF Lusaka Province chairman Geoffrey Chuumbwe says the Central Committee will soon meet to decide the fate of Mr. Lubinda.

Speaking in an interview with Qfm news, Mr. Chuumbwe says the petition by Kabwata Constituency officials has already been submitted to the party secretary general wynter kabimba for further scrutiny.

Mr. Chuumbwe says the Central Committee will soon make a ruling based on the recommendations by the Secretary General.

He has since called on members to remain calm and allow the central committee to have the final say on the matter.

PF Kabwata officials have accused Mr. Lubinda of being disloyal to the party and retarding development among other things.

On Saturday PF thugs paid by Kabimba went to State House carrying placard to denounce Lubinda.

One of the banners read, “Abash Dual Membership.. Lubinda Must Go to UPND Where He belongs” and “PF is bigger than One Small Spy…Lubinda must go and It Must Be Now. Pabwato”.

Silubanji who led the the thugs said Mr Lubinda was not popular in Kabwata and the demonstrations was aimed at showing the PF party leadership that their MP was not wanted and should therefore be expelled immediately.

“Mr Lubinda belongs to UPND and even the people that welcomed him at the airport were not PF cadres but UPND. I am sure if you split this man even his blood is UPND,” he said.
