He further urged members to be disciplined and united.
‘’All of us are PF. Those with divided loyalty once pinned down will be dealt with. We in the PF should not fight. Let us show the people of Zambia why we are a party of choice,’’ he said.
President Lungu also assured party members that a vehicle has been sourced for party mobilization in the province adding that it should be used by both the district and provincial party members.

‘’Please continue loving one another, be patriotic, Zambia is one and we all belong to this Zambia. Speak out, don’t be intimidated. If you don’t speak out, I won’t know your challenges,’’ he said.
