The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) on the Copperbelt has continued to grow with more members from the opposition joining the PF, with UPND Miputu ward Councillor in Masaiti being the latest local government leader to ditch the UPND. “I have decided to resign from UPND as a Councillor because UPND lacks leadership, especially the bad approach it has towards national development projects and l feel it is not right for me to be used to deny the people of Miputu development in the name of embarrassing and decampaigning the current PF government,” said Councillor Hosin Mabeti. “I am happy with the development agenda of our Republican President Dr Edgar Chagwa Lungu and our MP Mr Katambo. The good working relationship of our Mayor of Luanshya Nathan Chanda who is also PF Provincial Chairman and others has made it possible for me to join PF.”
