–PF members on the Copperbelt have called for the immediate impeachment of Acting President, Guy Scott, for requesting that the filing in of nominations for PF Presidential candidate be postponed in view of pending court cases.
The PF members demanded for further disciplinary action on Dr Scott whom they accused of being a danger to the party.
Scores of PF members, led by PF Copperbelt Provincial Chairperson, Nathan Chanda and Provincial Women’s Chairperson, Hilda Kawesha, today gathered at Kitwe City Square and denounced Dr Scott who they said betrayed late President, Michael Sata, and the PF party.
And speaking on behalf of other members, Mr Chanda said it was clear from his conduct that Dr Scott‘s agenda is to destroy the PF.
Mr Chanda accused Dr Scott of having spearheaded the formation of a new political party with a view of joining it after destroying PF.
He, however, said the PF on the Copperbelt will not be intimidated by Dr Scott’s manoeuvres because they are ready to die for the PF.
Mr Chanda called on well-meaning PF members to rally behind Edgar Lungu, who was making progressive statements aimed at improving the general welfare of the citizens once elected head of state.
And Mrs Kawesha called for unity of purpose among the PF members against Dr Scott’s treacherous acts.
On Monday, this week, Acting President, Guy Scott, requested the Acting Chief Justice Lombe ChibesaKunda to defer filing in of nominations for the PF candidate in view of the pending court case.
