Luapula Province PF Chairperson Nickson Chilangwa says it is the duty of every PF member to defend President Edgar Lungu from opposition propaganda ahead of the 2021 general election.
Mr. Chilangwa observes that some ruling party members have a tendency of keeping quiet when President Lungu is insulted instead of standing up for the truth.
ZANIS reports that Mr. Chilangwa who is Kawambwa Central Constituency Member of Parliament was speaking when he hosted youths and PF officials for a luncheon at his residence in Kawambwa.
The lawmaker accused some opposition political parties of coming up with all sorts of lies against the Head of State to make him look bad in the eyes of the people.
Mr. Chilangwa said President Lungu has changed the face of Kawambwa by the many developmental activities that have taken place, hence the need for the youths to defend him.
He cited the revamping of Kawambwa Tea Company, establishment of the 21-thousand-hectare ZAFFICO pine and eucalyptus plantation, Sunbird Bioenergy Africa, Green 2000 among many others as some of the projects in Kawambwa.
And Kawambwa Town Council Chairperson Kalumba Chifumbe wondered what message opposition political party leaders will have seeing the PF’s development scorecard.
