Patriotic Front Central Committee member and former party Deputy Secretary General, Mumbi Phiri has denounced claims that the ruling party is enticing members of the opposition UPND to ditch their party.
Mrs. Phiri, says it is unfortunate the UPND has continued spreading falsehoods in the run up to the August 12th elections. She reiterated the Patriotic Front does not have money to entice people like Teddy Kasonso and Professor Geoffrey Lungwangwa among who have also join the ruling party.
Speaking via telephone on Hot FM’s Breakfast show this morning, Mrs Phiri said the UPND members defecting to the ruling party are doing so of their own volition.
In a related matter, Golden Party of Zambia President, Jackson Silavwe says the increased number of defections by politicians to and from the ruling and opposition parties is a clear indication that the majority of them are doing so for personal interests and not the well-being Zambians.
