The Patriotic Front (PF) has suspended four senior members of the party that are currently facing disciplinary charges.
PF Chairperson for Information and Publicity, Emmanuel Mwamba, said the suspensions were with immediate effect.
Mwamba said this on Sunday in Lusaka after the party held its Central Committee meeting.
“Those affected include party National Chairperson, Davies Chama, Davison Mung’andu, Chama South Member of Parliament, Miles Sampa, Matero Member of Parliament, and Mafinga Member of Parliament Robert Chawinga,” he said.
Mwamba said Sampa was facing fresh disciplinary charges after he stormed the Party Secretariat, and his alleged thugs attacked the property on September 15, 2023.
He said Sampa had also been removed from the position of Chairperson of Local Government.
“The Central Commitee has also directed the Disciplinary Committee to complete the process of hearings on the disciplinary matters within the period of one month,” Mwamba said.
He said that the Disciplinary Committee had also been directed to bring recommendations to the Central Commitee for final determination.
Mwamba said the Central Commitee was sitting in Lusaka to attend to many issues including determination of fresh dates of both the Constitutional and Extra-Ordinary General Conference.
“In his opening remarks, acting President Given Lubinda, expressed concern at the ugly development of indiscipline in the party,” he said.
Mwamba said Lubinda bemoaned that in many instances, the indiscipline was being perpetrated by some senior members.
Lubinda, he stated, would act to stem the indiscipline and that persons perpetrating it would be dealt with sternly.
