*PF HALLUCINATING OVER THE ALLEGED DEFECTIONS IN MPONGWE CONSTITUENCY*
I wish to dispel the reported defections of UPND members in Mpongwe as false.
The PF is hallucinating over the reported defection of 48 Ward, Branch officials and 500 plus ordinary UPND card carrying members.
The reported defection is fake because all UPND structures in Munkumpu Ward in Mpongwe Constituency are intact.
According to our party records and verification Mr. Lewis Matipa said to have led the alleged defectors has never been a leader in the UPND.
The Patriotic Front desperation is causing them to fake anything including defections to try and cushion the impact of their embarssing loss in the just ended by election in Roan Constituency.
The UPND Munkumpu Ward structure led by Chairman Mabo MUSONDA is intact. The structure at Chikanda Branch where PF was entertaining its members at a local bar who were bought alcohol, a goat and chickens is also intact.
PF is not attractive and has no grip in the UPND dominated Mpongwe Constituency.
I will advise the PF to tell the nation the truth about paying farmers for the maize they supplied to Food Reserve Agency (FRA) instead of faking defections.
