Rainbow Party leader Wynter Kabimba has described opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema as spoiled leader whose followers regard him as a demigod.

And Kabimba has observed that Hichilema or HH as he is commonly called could be worse than President Lungu and Michael Sata he has been condemning.

Kabimba who featured on the Peoples Debate on Pan African Radio on Tuesday said Hakainde’s followers have been glorifying him hence making him big headed.

He said it was disappointing to note that a person aspiring to take over the highest office of the land could use disparaging language against others for pointing out something.

“You have been spoilt by being glorified by those around you that think that you are ‘demigod’ and you commit no wrong and you commit no sin, so what you say is final. This is a democracy. The sooner those of us that want to lead the people adjust our mindset and hear things that you do not want to hear from others, the better,” he said.

He advised HH to learn to listen to others because democracy was about debating and sharing ideas.

“They may belong to the political party that you lead or they may not belong to your political. That is what cross pollination of ideas is all about. But when you say everything that Wynter said is ‘crap’, how do I answer back because that’s not an argument. That’s just emotions. So you are just a guy pumped up, full of emotions and anger. Anything small the volcano of anger in you elapses, so how can you lead? If you are showing those traits, how can you tell me that you will be better than Edgar Lungu tomorrow, you will be better than Micheal Sata, I can’t believe you. You will even be worse than what you are saying about Edgar and Micheal Sata,” he said.

He added “Our colleagues in the UPND have no capacity to debate. The capacity they have is to insult. And they are frightening citizens out there if they don’t know. This is the political party that has insulted everybody. They have insulted the police, the Judiciary, government and scholars. I was really disappointed listening to HH on radio Phoenix referring to what I had said on Hot FM as ‘crap’. Now, you don’t use that language as a leader.”

Hakainde Hichilema recently advised Kabimba to stop using his party to catch the attention of the PF. He told Kabimba to quietly go back to the PF opposed to talking crap about the UPND.

  1. Kabimba has should keep quiet and concentrate on building his party that failed to take off despite being favoured by the post newspaper at the time. When Rainbow won a council seat, Kabimba grew wings but come general election, the party failed to win single seat not even at council level. Let him concentrate on farming. Full stop.
