PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu says he has no intent to change the Copperbelt leadership at district or provincial level. Taking cognizant of calls by Chishimba Kambwili demanding the dismissal of Provincial minister Bowman Lusambo, the head of state upon arrival in Ndola today gave comfort to the Copperbelt PF leadership when he noted that he had no intention to change them. The head of state further assured them of his protection and guidance but cautioned them that they are on probation. President Lungu also emphasised the need for unity in the party. “When you are divided your enemies are very happy,” he cautioned. “When there is bickering in the family your enemies rejoice and jubilate.” He advised the Copperbelt leadership to be wary of those trying to cause confusion, noting that they are after their jobs or looking to replace them with people who will be gullible.

Clarifying the matter Ngulube added that the house is not entitled to host such a debate as such would be done by the committee on privileges. Ngulube noted that the house in its current form not only comprises PF members of parliament but has MMD and some UPND parliamentarians who were not suspended. He said it was malicious propaganda for anyone to allege that the Kasama law maker raised such a motion. Ngulube also laughed it off that if it was possible for parliament to debate emoluments it would be a blind lie to allege that UPND would refuse because the current conditions of MP’s are low.

According a source, the proposal was raised by PF Kasama Member of Parliament Kelvin Sampa.” Yes Sampa raised the motion and the speaker put it to debate. One or two Cabinet Ministers pretended to oppose it but the ‘majority’ supported it. Even the Speaker seemed to support the motion. ‘You know procedure demands that parliament does not debate itself so parliament radio did not broadcast the debate,’ the source said. The sourced said it was embarrassing because members of the public will now believe that is why speaker suspended UPND MPs.
