I’M Still PF Secretary General, Just on Leave – Edgar Lungu
Edgar Lungu has refuted a report in Fred M’membe’s Post Newspaper
suggesting he had relinquished his position as Secretary General of the ruling
Lungu, who is among
the 10 candidates vying for the PF SG post, has stated he is only on leave and
will resume his duties later.
Below is a statement
I have received
several concerns and queries following a story circulating in some sections of
the media that I have resigned or relinquished my position as Secretary General
of the Patriotic Front.
I am hereby stating
for the record that I have not resigned my position as SG.
I have simply taken
leave of absence or temporarily stepped aside until our party finalises a
decision to select who shall run for the position of party President.
With this statement,
I wish to re-affirm that I Edgar C. Lungu remain Secretary General of the PF
until such a time that a substantive candidate has been named to contest the
20th January 2015 by-election.
In my absence, the
Deputy Secretary General Mrs. Bridgette Attanga will act as the Secretary
General of the Party.
God bless Zambia.
Hon. Edgar C. Lungu Secretary
General of the PF Minister
of Defense and Justice
