Members of Zambia’s ruling party to vote against Lungu

JOHANNESBURG- Members of Zambia’s ruling Patriotic Front (PF) have decided to vote against President Edgar Lungu in the forthcoming impeachment motion in an effort to “teach” him a “life lesson”, the Zambian Observer reported on Monday.

The newspaper Zambian Observer has reported that sixteen parliamentary members mostly from Luapula, Northern, Muchinga and Copperbelt have sent complaints of Lungu’s unreasonable behaviour and how they felt sidelined by him during a meeting on Sunday night.

However, the PF members have said that some members in the opposition were working with the State House to prevent the impeachment motion proceeding. Including that Haikende Haichilema, the leader of the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND), needed to know that not all of his parliamentary members could be trusted.

The PF went even further to claim that the opposition members visit the State House frequently and receive cash in return for their “visits”.
