Atanga said that PF members should realize that she was now a full Secretary General with full powers to disciple errant members.
She said that the members who had shown contempt for her appointment had no respect for her appointing authority Scott.
Atanga was compassionately handed the Secretary Generalship after presidential aspirant Edgar Lungu stepped down albeit reluctantly following his filing of nomination papers.
She said that she had been a party member long enough to deserve the position the position that was handed to her by Scott.
Atanga is being deputized by Anthony Kasolo whose short stay in his position has been marred by controversy including his shameful act to storm ZNBC studios to harass staff over a news item he deemed undesirable.
“People who don’t respect the fact that I am Secretary General have no respect for
the acting President who appointed me,” she said.
“Let me remind them that I am not acting Secretary General but full time and have powers to deal with them.”
