Fired Patriotic Front (PF) Southern Province Political Secretary Brian Hapunda has denied accusations of fraudulent activities leveled against him leading to his sacking by President Michael Sata.

In a telephone interview with QFM News today, Hapunda says all the accusations against him are the work of his enemies within the party who were not happy when President Sata appointed him as provincial political Secretary.

Mr. Hapunda says he never went round collecting monies from companies and business houses in the name of the President and that of PF Secretary General, Wynter Kabimba.

He says he does not regret making the PF known to Southern Province considering that it was one of the strongholds for the opposition UPND but that now the PF is able to compete firmly with the UPND.

Mr Hapunda has called on Members of Parliament in Southern Province to closely work with the ruling PF in order to develop the area.

He has further pledged his loyalty to the ruling Patriotic Front.
