THE Patriotic Front (PF) in Luapula Province says it is not part of the internal wrangles that have rocked the party over tribalism.
Provincial vice-chairperson Bernard Chisanga says the party is not interested in squabbles bordering on tribalism.
“As Luapula provincial executive committee, we would like to distance ourselves from whatever squabbles are taking place in the party, especially in Lusaka. We don’t even know the origin of these squabbles and as a result, we shall just be there watching.
“Our allegiance is to the President [Sata] and we respect the top leadership and we don’t want to involve ourselves in things that we don’t know,” Mr Chisanga told journalists in Mansa yesterday.
He said the PF provincial leadership fears that, should the differences continue, they will divide the party.
“It is just too early for our party to be divided. We have a lot of programmes to undertake and so we need peace in the party,” he said.
Mr Chisanga called on President Sata and the PF central committee to make a serious intervention and put the problem to an end.
He said none of the people causing differences in the party has consulted the provincial executive committee to tell members what is happening.
Mr Chisanga said as far as the committee is concerned, there is no tribalism in the PF.
“There is no tribalism in PF whatsoever,” he said.
