Political analyst Neo Simutanyi has advised ruling Patriotic Front (PF) members to leave former Justice Minister and PF Secretary General alone now that he has left the ranks of leadership of the party.
Dr. Simutanyi’s counsel follows incessant verbal attacks and criticism of the fallen once PF strong man whose dismissal by President Michael Sata last week came as a big surprise to many.
Speaking to Qfm News in an interview Dr. Simutanyi says the ruling party should move on now that Mr. Kabimba no longer holds the party’s key position of Chief Executive Officer.
Dr. Simutanyi, who is also Centre for Policy Dialogue Executive Director, says members of the ruling PF should concentrate on organizing the party in view of the fact that it was Mr. Kabimba himself who was seen to be in the forefront organizing the PF.
He adds that members of the ruling PF should also be mindful that people in the country are now looking forward to seeing change in how the ruling party will be organized under the stewardship of the new Secretary General.
Mr. Simutanyi notes that people are further looking forward to seeing whether there will be a different approach in the manner the civil society will be engaged now that ruling party has a new Chief Executive Officer.
