Patriotic Front (PF) Deputy Secretary General Bridget Atanga says it is up to Wynter Kabimba to determine his future in the ruling party following his dismissal as PF Secretary General and Justice Minister.

Ms. Atanga says she cannot speak on behalf of Mr. Kabimba especially that he himself has remained silent following his dismissal.

She says no one in the party knows what Mr. Kabimba is thinking and planning at the moment.

Asked what Mr Kabimba’s status is with regards his position of President of the Council of African Political Parties (CAPP), Ms. Atanga has told a media briefing in Lusaka that she does not know.

And Ms.Atanga has directed party members to stop holding public demonstrations against elected or appointed party officials.

She says her directive follows consultation with party Secretary General Edgar Lusaka after reports of planned demonstrations against Southern Province PF Chairman Daniel Munkombwe and frictions in the PF in Mandevu constituency following the sacking of Mr. Kabimba.

Ms. Atanga has reminded party members especially the youths that demonstrations against elected or appointed officials are tantamount to indiscipline and disloyalty to the party leadership.

The PF Deputy Secretary says the ruling party has communication channels where complaints against any party member or official can be tabled and adequately attended to.
