President Lungu said the 'prodigal' lawmakers had been forgiven by the PF and would be allowed back in the party.
The Head of State warmly welcomed Chimwemwe lawmaker Mwila Mutale and his Wusakile counterpart Pavyuma Kalobo.
President Lungu said that he had forgiven the Independent Members of Parliament and would treat them with the same courtesy extended to ruling party lawmakers.
