Sikwindi Situla’s expulsion from PF is final – Edgar Lungu

President Sata, David Phiri, Edgar Lungu

PATRIOTIC Front (PF) disciplinary committee chairman Edgar Lungu says the expulsion of assistant secretary general Sikwindi Situla from the ruling party is final.
Mr Lungu said the disciplinary committee is unable to handle the matter because it has not come before him.
This is according to the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation news monitored in Lusaka yesterday.
Mr Lungu, who is also Minister of Home Affairs, could not comment further on the matter but said there are rules and regulations that all members of any political party must follow.
On Tuesday, PF deputy secretary general Bridget Atanga announced the expulsion of Mr Situla from the ruling party for indiscipline and insubordination.
Mr Situla was on Monday suspended by Ms Atanga for allegedly being behind the formation of the ‘Fourth Republic Party’ and was given 24 hours in which to exculpate himself.
But Mr Situla refused to exculpate himself before Ms Atanga saying he could only do that to the appointing authority, President Sata.
This prompted Ms Atanga to expel Mr Situla from the PF for indiscipline and gross insubordination.
