PATRIOTIC Front Vice President Given Lubinda says the party is not shaken about the intention by the UPND administration to embark on the asset recovery programme.

In an interview, Mr Lubinda has since advised the UPND government to quickly start the programme.

He said the sooner the programme is embarked on, the better it will be for the UPND government to end the drama of insinuating and banding all PF members as thieves.

“If they are members of the PF that they know as thieves let them pursue those specific people, instead of labelling the whole party as an organisation of thieves.

Mr Lubinda added that it is not true that every one in the PF is a thief, hence the sooner they do it the better.

He has since urged the UPND government to ensure the program is conducted in a legal manner by following all the laid down government procedure.

“They are welcome and let them proceed to do so,” Mr Lubinda said.
