EASTERN Province PF chairperson Andrew Lubusha says he wants to build a team equal to the task of ensuring that voter turnout in Southern Province is cancelled by Eastern Province in an election.
He says some members of his committee who were sleeping will be replaced during the provincial intraparty conference.
In an interview, Lubusha said PF was very strong in the province.
“I want to confess that our party is strong in Eastern Province but our provincial committee has not been strong as it is supposed to be.
Yes, we are strong at the moment but I want it to be stronger than the way it is,” he said.
Lubusha said he wants to build a very strong team that would be equal to the task.
“When I talk about being equal to the task I am looking at the voter turnout in Southern Province to be cancelled by Eastern Province in an
election,” he said. “We want to make sure that Eastern Province remains a stronghold for the Patriotic Front. Our goal is to ensure that the
votes from this province cancel the votes from Southern Province and we can only do that by rebuilding the party.”
Lubusha said PF wanted to build structures from the section up to the province.
Meanwhile, Lubusha told Breeze FM that he had written to PF secretary general Davies Mwila to halt all disciplinary proceedings against his
challenger Elias Daka popularly known as Eliboma and Petauke Central Constituency aspiring candidate Emmanuel Jay Jay Banda.
Daka and Banda were briefly expelled from the party for undermining Msanzala member of parliament Peter Daka and Petauke Central parliamentarian Dora Siliya.
The expulsions were later reversed after the party realised that normal procedure was not followed when arriving at the decision.
Jay Jay is also aspiring for provincial youth chairperson.
Lubusha and Daka are busy campaigning in various parts of the province.
Last week Bright Chihana, who was information and publicity secretary in Lubusha’s committee, announced that he had decided to throw his
weight behind Daka.
