Former Republican Vice President Guy Scott has been challenged to relinquish his membership of the ruling Patriotic Front following his endorsement of UPND president Hakainde Hichilema’s candidature.
Speaking during a media briefing, PF Deputy Spokesperson Frank Bwalya says the ruling party does not understand why Dr. Scott is not relinquishing his membership when his allegiance is no longer with President Edgar Lungu and the PF.
He says the PF cannot right away expel the Lusaka Central Member of Parliament knowing very well that he will rush to courts to preserve his stay in the ruling party.
Mr. Bwalya states that this is despite the fact that Dr. Scott is not a PF member by heart.
And Mr. Bwalya has disclosed that the PF will soon be receiving huge defections of members from other political parties which will demonstrate how strong the party still remains.
