Over 700 Youth League members from the UPND in Chingola and Nchanga Constituencies on the Copperbelt have defected to the PF.
This was during a PF mobilization rally addressed by Energy Minister Matthew Nkhuwa and Nchanga Member of Parliament Chali CHILOMBO.
Former UPND Chingola District Youth Chairperson Bright Chilambwe who led the defectors told the rally that the youth wing of the party is tired of living on promises.
Mr. Chilambwe said his fellow Youth league members have been attracted to the ruling party because of the visible development PF has taken to Chingola.
Meanwhile, Mr Nkhuwa said the PF is an all embracing party which wants to unite the nation through elections.
Mr Nkhuwa, who is also Chingola Member of Parliament, urged the former UPND members to support President Edgar Lungu in his quest to develop the country.
And Mr. Chilombo thanked President Lungu for having intervened in the problems at Konkola Copper Mines.
He urged the people of Chingola to show appreciation for President Lungu by voting him into office on August 12th.
Meanwhile PF Copperbelt Province Youth chairperson DON MUNGULUBE urged the former UPND members to go flat out and campaign with their fellow youths in the PF.
