Patriotic Front (PF) Kimasala ward youth chairperson in Solwezi district, Felix Kalupentala, has resigned from the party.
In press statement made available to Zambia News and Information Services (ZANIS) in Solwezi today, Mr Kalupentala said he has decided to leave the ruling party because he has seen that the party is going nowhere without late President, Michael Sata.
He, however, could not indicate his next move after leaving the PF party.
“Without the late President, Michael Chilufya Sata, the PF party is not going anywhere. I have decided to follow the highly appreciated decision by the former secretary general, Winter Kabimba’s steps to step down”, Mr Kalupentala said.
However, PF North-western Vice Provincial Chairperson, Toby Kandulu, said the party in the province still remains intact and Mr Kalupentala is free to exercise his democratic rights.
Mr Kandulu appealed to other party members to remain patient and see how the party would be in future because there is no party that has never had shake-ups among its members.
He said it is true that late President Sata was a good beginner of the party but God knows who is to follow his legacy as leader of the party.
