Defence Minister Geoffrey Mwamba says he is more than ready to campaign alongside his Justice counterpart Wynter Kabimba in the forthcoming by-elections following the President Michael Sata’s directive.
Mr Mwamba and Mr Kabimba have been linked to two rival groups in the ruling party which have recently been involved in violent clashes.
On Monday during caucus meeting for PF Members of Parliament, President Michael Sata called on the two Cabinet Ministers to show the country that there are no differences in the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) by jointly conducting campaigns for the PF candidates in the forthcoming by-elections.
Mr. Mwamba has told Qfm news in telephone interview from South Africa that he personally does not have any problem working with Mr. Kabimba and that President Sata’s counsel is more than welcome.
He explains that the only differences that existed earlier were between his group and that of Mr. Kabimba and not personal differences.
Mr. Mwamba says this why he is in support of President Sata’s directive because it will further bring about unity in the ruling party thereby help serve the Zambian people in the manner the party is expected to serve.
Mr. Mwamba who is also PF Kasama central Member of Parliament says without unity in the ruling party there cannot be development in the country.
Efforts to get Mr. Kabimba over President Sata’s directive proved futile as his phone went unanswered.
