PATRIOTIC Front (PF) national youth chairperson Chishimba Kambwili has warned youths against fanning confusion at this year’s Independence Day celebrations in Kitwe.
He was speaking when he held a meeting with youths from constituencies at Kitwe Little Theatre yesterday where he was flanked by Copperbelt Minister Mwenya Musenge and Kitwe District PF chairperson Allan Mwewa.
Mr Kambwili, who is Youth and Sport Minister, said President Michael Sata had received information that some youths in Kitwe intended to disrupt this year’s Independence Day celebrations.
He said the reports indicated that there were two factions with one being in support of PF secretary general Wynter Kabimba while the other was against Mr Kabimba.
Mr Kambwili said the party had no factions, and that all members belonged to the PF.
He said the secretary general’s issue was being handled by the President.
Mr Kambwili said the Independence Day celebrations were a national event and confusion should, therefore, not be entertained.
“Let us be honest with what we do and avoid dark corner meetings. Anyone fanning confusions will be expelled from the party,” Mr Kambwili said.
He said wrangles had the ability to break the PF and appealed to all members to safeguard the interests of the party and promote unity.
Mr Kambwili said the strength of the party was in the youths who had the energy to organise it.
Government, he said, had a programme of developing the country and that during the two years the PF had been in power it had constructed more than 1,500 kilometres of new roads.
Mr Kambwili said the party had also embarked on creating power generation projects to end load shedding in the country.
President Sata is expected to grace the Independence Day celebrations at Kitwe Playing Fields today.
