The Patriotic Front -PF- has with immediate effect banned its members and aspiring candidates from disbursing cash at public gatherings as a means of mobilising the electorates.

PF National Mobilisation Chairperson Richard Musukwa says all forms of public display of cash during meetings is against the ideological foundations of PF as a pro poor party.

Musukwa, who is also Mines Minister, says all forms of support to churches, marketeers and other interest groups should be in the form of projects and welfare programmes.

He says all PF members should take a lead in advancing practices that promote a free and fair political environment ahead of the August 2021 General Election.

Musukwa has disclosed that President Edgar Lungu is disturbed by the recent public display and dispensing of volumes of cash by some PF members during Mobilisation engagements.

He has told ZNBC news in a telephone interview that all PF members are bound by the directive adding that erring individuals will face consequence of their actions.

Musukwa explained that the PF won the 2011 and 2016 general elections without resorting to public cash disbursements.

He said public cash disbursement only fuel unwarranted allegations of corruption regardless of one’s source of money.

Musukwa has guided that all support should be through construction project materials, bore holes and Empowerment funds through clearly defined project schemes and initiatives.

He has since called on all PF members across the country to galvanise support from the people to ensure President Lungu and the Patriotic Front win the 2021 polls with a landslide. -znbc

  1. Imwe ba Musukwa you will be hated by your fellow Lusambos who feel have been sent by the president to dish out cash in public instead money should be withdrawn from the bank by the beneficiaries for accountability.
    Also talk about the other evil bill that want to infrendge the rights of expression.

  2. Musukwa is right but behaving well and following good values in PF saazaziletelela chabe kuli banzake mu PF? For sure not every one in PF is corrupt but the face of PF is corruption and that’s why the righteous in the party have no voice.
    Hope musukwa will still be PF days from now without harassment

  3. But each time they are making cash donations they will inform the gathering that the cash is from the President himself. This is what Lusambo said when he dished out K300,000 cash in Kabushi Constituency recently.

  4. They have seen that now people have got proof of how they have been stealing and dishing out money to buy votes which will become a problem for them so now they are telling them to do it secretly instead of openly. Too late, the cat is already out of the bag.

  5. Every idiot distributing money or even toilet tissues says, I have been sent by ECL, so why does Musukwa think any dog will listen to his stupidity? I guess the CBU bus chants of forward! forward! has made the fools realize that after all, 90% of the recipients of the idiotic donations donchi want to kubeba. Ukunya kwena bakanya, ne nsoni shikabekata, elo ne cifungo cikabakonka olo bakacikonka.

  6. PF HAS MEMBERS WHO ARE UNABLE TO ARTICULATE ITS POLICIES. IN FACT NO ONE HAS EVER EXPLAINED THE PF IDEOLOGY TO ZAMBIANS. MARIA LANGA’S ACTION OF DISHING OUT MONEY TO ELECTORATES IS A MANIFESTATION OF HER INABILITY TO EXPLAIN PF IDEOLOGY OR MANIFESTO. SHAME ON HER!
