1 Min Read

Minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security, Jack Mwiimbu, refutes fake list of PF office bearers attributed to the Registrar of Societies. Mwiimbu clarifies that the Registrar has not been fired but reassigned to other duties at the Cabinet Office, contrary to social media reports. During a media briefing in Lusaka, Mwiimbu discredits the alleged list, citing inaccuracies such as registering former President Edgar Lungu as PF President in 2002 when he was a UPND member. He asserts that the Registrar of Societies cannot issue a list without consultation with the Attorney General, who represents the government. Mwiimbu acknowledges the Registrar’s advisory role to parliament regarding changes in PF office bearers’ names, leading to the Speaker of the National Assembly taking note of the adjustments. Despite the legal status of the matter, Mwiimbu addresses the issue due to rampant speculations.
