Former First lady, Christine Kaseba, has returned to Lusaka without touching the venue of the Patriotic Front (PF) General Conference which is being held in Kabwe at Mulungushi Rock of Authority after hearing of unconfirmed reports of confusion at the conference.
Acting President, Guy Scott, who had earlier arrived in Kabwe with the Former First Lady Dr Kaseba , Justice and Defence Minister, Edger Lungu and Local Government and Housing Minister, Emmanuel Chenda, flew Dr Kaseba to Lusaka.
Dr Scott has since returned to chair an emergency Central Committee meeting at Kabwe Presidential Lodge.
The general conference has delayed to start after false information of reported violence reached the ears of the PF aspirating candidates who consequently decided to stay away from the venue of the conference.
However, the mood at the general conference is peaceful even after the PF delegates have been waiting for over ten hours to cast their votes for their preferred candidates contesting the top PF position.
Meanwhile, reports have emerged that Deputy Minister of Commerce, Trade and Industry Miles Sampa has withdrawn from the race and has since returned to Lusaka.
Six candidates except for Dr Kaseba , Mr Sampa and Selemani Banda, are in Kabwe waiting for the outcome of the emergency PF Central Committee meeting.
