PF Secretary General Davies Mwila says he saddened of a digital campaign poster circulating on social-media using the colours of the Patriotic Front portraying among others, the late Dr Abigail Mulenga.
Mr Mwila said that the late Dr Mulenga served the country diligently through the Kabwe General Hospital hence the need to respect her.
He said that they have put it on record that the poster was not made by any of the media centres or teams of the Patriotic Front.
Mr Mwila said the matter has been reported to the Police to help establish if the poster was made in a malicious and criminal manner to deliberately soil the image of the PF and attempt to cause public anger against it.
He said President Edgar Lungu has called on for clean, smart campaigns, without the use of violence or negative methods.
Mr Mwila has apologized to the family of Dr Abigail Mulenga for the pain and cause the poster may have caused.
“You will all remember that the nation was saddened by the loss of Dr Abigail Mulenga especially that at the age of 23 years at the time of her death, she had a full life ahead of her. It is for this reason that no one should exploit her images for political or any other reasons,” he said.
