GIVEN Lubinda says he will defend his parliamentary seat if the PF expels him on allegations that he was collaborating with opposition parties.

During a meeting with his supporters last evening at his house in Kabwata, Lubinda assured them that he would retain his seat because the large majority felt he had represented them well. Lubinda said those calling for his resignation were sponsored by his enemies that were jealous of his achievements.

"Don't worry. All these things happening will come to an end. Just wait and see. Most of these people insulting me are just paid by people with agendas and they feel uncomfortable with me around because some want to be Presidents and think with me around it won't be possible," said Lubinda.

Lubinda told his supporters that some people in the central committee had teamed up against him but was comforted by the fact that the grassroots would give him overwhelming support and was sure to retain his seat.

PF members of parliament recently accused Lubinda of treachery.
PF secretary general Wynter Kabimba gave Lubinda a one-week ultimatum to exculpate himself following allegations of his collaboration with opposition MMD and UPND to discredit PF's decisions and policies to which the latter is said to have responded.

But Lubinda when asked about the meeting at his home and what he told his supporters, said he had no reason to think along the lines of standing as an independent candidate.

"I am not in a position to answer such a question because I do not delve into the future. I know yesterday and I know today. Up to now, I don't even know what is going to happen in the next one hour. I leave the future to the one (God) who can see the future, not me. I am just an ordinary human being. I have no capacity to read the future," said Lubinda.
