THE Patriotic Front (PF) in Lusaka has urged Senior Chief Mukuni to stop issuing unjustified remarks that President Edgar Lungu is not eligible to contest the August 12 general elections.
PF Lusaka Province secretary Kennedy Kamba said in a statement, that he is concerned that Chief Mukuni has continued to issue unwarranted remarks against President Lungu.
Kamba said the traditional leader has been calling the head of State all sorts of names and trying to paint him black before the public.
“President Lungu is a democrat and a mature and wise leader who respects chiefs in accordance with our African tradition and culture,” he said.
In one of the tabloids on Sunday, Chief Mukuni claimed that President Lungu is not eligible to contest the forthcoming elections.
