Former Finance Minister Katele Kalumba has called on Patriotic Front (PF) members with ambitions of becoming the country’s republican President to hold on to their aims for the right time.

Dr. Kalumba’s counsel follows revelations by Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda that there are some PF leaders who have begun positioning themselves for presidency despite there being no vacancy in the country.

Speaking to Qfm news in a telephone interview Dr. Kalumba says politicians whether from the ruling party or the opposition should be reminded that they have a singular obligation to create stability and confidence in the governance of the country.

Dr. Kalumba says this confidence is required at the country’s national security, economical, political, social and cultural levels.

He says this is why it is important to always manage information intelligently on the Head of State to avoid creating troubling anxieties in the minds of the people.

The former Finance Minister says it of this reason he thinks that creating an impression that there is a vacuum in the country’s presidency by people who are alleged to have started positioning themselves for the presidency boarders on creating insecurity in the country.

He says PF member who have aims of becoming republican president should therefore wait for the time that the ruling party goes for a convention.
