HH with Lungu

Leading opposition UPND says President Lungu and his PF should not fool Zambians to justify their theft encouraging remark but should instead just apologise.

UPND said this in a statement below issued by it’s National Chairperson Mutale Nalumango.

PRESS STATEMENT
Monday 12th February 2018

PF LEADERS MUST JUST APOLOGIZE THAN INSULTING THE INTELLIGENCE OF ZAMBIANS TRYING TO SPIN WHAT EDGAR LUNGU SAID ON THE COPPERBELT

We have seen a number of statements coming from the PF leadership, especially Sunday Chanda, trying to spin and offer different versions of what their boss Edgar Lungu said on the Copperbelt.

Edgar Lungu was not even misquoted when he encouraged those in government to go in high gear in looting public resources as per saying he used ‘Ubomba mwibala alya mwibala’.

We fully sympathise and understand the predicament the PF leadership have found themselves over the reckless statement issued by Edgar Lungu encouraging PF officials at all levels to loot public resources.

The truth is there is no other meaning other than meaning the people know which is that of encouraging stealing in government.

In fact, the PF are basically trying to insult the intelligence of the Zambian people by trying to spin and offer twisted meanings when Lungu said it as it is. As a matter of fact the man even had the audacity to say “We shall leave Government Bankrupt….”. Who is we in that statement that was the precursor to the call on looting.

The best Edgar Lungu should do if he really means well is to offer a retraction and an unconditional apology to the nation over the reckless statement.

We know that many people such as Edgar Lungu tend to say what is really deep down their hearts. As the bible says ‘From the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks’.

He may not have intended to say it but he surely meant what he said that people can steal from their employers.

As things stand, Lungu went to officially launch corruption in the country on the Copperbelt.

  2. The strategy of pf is to amass wealth so that during elections they are in a position to buy votes in mass and win The trick is make the electorates poor so that they can sell their votes for a song.
