PATRIOTIC Front (PF) Secretary General Morgan Ng’ona has called for a Central Committee meeting scheduled for this Saturday.
The meeting will be chaired by party president Miles Sampa.
The forthcoming meeting was communicated through a notice issued on Tuesday to all Central Committee members.
The specific time and venue remain undisclosed.
Sampa and group took over the former ruling party after a controversially-convened extraordinary general conference last October.
Soon after being elected president, Sampa appointed Ng’ona as Secretary General who in turn made sweeping changes to the party including removing Brian Mundubile as leader of the opposition in Parliament and replaced him with Robert Chabinga.
However, Sampa’s take over sparked a firece in-house legal battle that has pitted the Matero lawmaker and former president Edgar Lungu who also claims to be party president on the other.
With no court order to prevent Sampa from carrying out PF presidential duties, him and his group have been large and in charge while his opponents who include Raphael Nakacinda, Given Lubinda and Emmanuel Mwamba have been depleting thick rims of paper filing different cases before different courts as they fight to have the Sampa-led leadership removed.
