I’M ready to be suspended for taking part in national programmes that are aimed at unifying the country rather than politicise everything, PF member of the central committee Paul Moonga has said.
Mr Moonga said that he was shocked that his colleagues in the central committee voted against attending the International Women’s Day celebrations.
He said he was ready to be suspended because he would continue going to such events which were of national benefit.
“It’s just unfortunate that I was not part and parcel of the meeting but that it is wrong that they decided to shun the celebrations which were not even political,” he said.
Mr Moonga said the PF needed to stop politicking and use such events to show that they have changed.
He said the people who took part in the celebrations needed to be given a pat on the back for their stance because this was a national issue.
Mr Moonga said that taking part in such events would only help the party bounce back to power and that he would work tirelessly to ensure that this became a reality.
He said that he would not hesitate to take part in such events and even meet the head of State if he was called.
Mr Moonga said despite coming from the opposition, he would never insult or undermine the government of the day and most especially the President.
He said there was need to have a line between politics and patriotism and that he was hoping the PF would not go the route of the UPND.
