MIKE Mulongoti says the PF is lacking in the area of infusing brains to help them push the development agenda.

In an interview, Mulongoti, who is also the People's Party president, said some of the individuals the PF was picking for deputy ministers were not adding any value to the government.

"If a government does not care about quality of those they co-opt, they are inviting mediocrity in their presence," Mulongoti said.

"Any government must look for quality people to help it. For that, everyone will support but they are lacking in this area of infusing brains to help push the development agenda."

Mulongoti said that people must be appointed on the basis that they can deliver, not to just add numbers.

"People must go into positions to deliver. If you are just going to get quantity, that is not good and that is where immorality starts from," he said.

And Mulongoti said there would be trouble if the PF failed to give a proper constitution to the Zambians.

"We don't want shoddy work or work that will be hurried. We want to promise PF that we are alert, we are watching and I can tell you over the constitution, we are going to do battle. We would like a logical conclusion that is good for all of us," said Mulogoti.
