Patriotic Front Member of the Central Committee, Antonio Mwanza says the Patriotic Front is the only party out of the 16 that contested in the 2021 General elections that is being questioned about it’s source of funding by the Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC).

Mr Mwanza who appeared before the Drug enforcement commission in Lusaka this afternoon after receiving a summons revealed that he was called in to be questioned about the source of funding for the PF in the just ended elections .

He said this was clearly an attempt to intimidate the opposition PF into cowering away from providing checks and balances to the current government.

He reiterated that the PF will not be intimidated, but will commit to provide checks and balances to ensure that the UPND Government fulfils the promises they made to the Zambian people .

He emphasised that no amount of intimidation would discourage the PF Membership to offer effective checks and balances.

He has since challenged the commission to extend their summon to all other parties that contested the elections.

He said the UPND should also state where they got their funding for elections if the exercise is to be viewed as not a mere persecution of the PF adding that as far as he is concerned, no political party is required to disclose their source of funding as prescribed by law.
