Former Patriotic Front (PF) Lusaka District chairperson Goodson Banda has demanded a public apology from Chawama Constituency chairperson Robert Chikwelete for allegedly ridiculing the ruling party and republican President Michael Sata.

This follows President Sata denying ever appointing Mr Chikwelete as PF Lusaka district chairman.

Mr. Banda says instead of thanking President Sata, Mr. Chikwelete should make a public apology for claiming that President Sata had appointed him as PF Lusaka District chairperson when in fact not.

He Mr. Chikwelete has exhibited the worst level of indiscipline which should not go unsanctioned.

And Mr Banda has expressed confidence bouncing back as District chairperson once an election is held.

He says he still commands a high level of popularity in the District.

President Sata has directed the provincial committee to call for a district conference where a new Lusaka district chairman will be elected.

Mr. BANDA has told Qfm in an interview that now that President Sata has stated his position on the matter of the legitimate leadership in the District, he will occupy the PF Lusaka District office until such a time when an election is held.
