President Michael Sata has appointed losing Chipata Central Patriotic Front Member of Parliament Lameck Magani as the party’s Chairman for Eastern province.

The President has told Mangani to hit the ground running and organize the party in the province saying he was hopeful the former MMD Member of Parliament for Chipata Central will deliver.

He said after the PF’s Central Committee meet, it shall instruct Mangani to organize party elections in the province.

President Sata said the Provincial Chairperson position was high and important in the PF.

And Mangani has pledged to work hard to organize the PF in Eastern province. He said his immediate task is to organize structures and ensure that the PF wins the two forthcoming by-elections in Petauke Central and Malambo.

The PF suffered a humiliating defeat recently in Chipata and Mkaika constituencies.

Will Mangani bring Eastern province to PF? Only time shall tell.
