HICHILEMA IS A HYPOCRITE, MUST APOLOGISE TO FORMER PRESIDENT LUNGU -NASSON MSONI
By New Dawn Reporter
PRESIDENT Hakainde Hichilema is a hypocrite who is now abusing public resources and Zambians should rise and hold him to accountable, All Peoples Congress (APC) leader Nasson Msoni has charged.
Msoni who is a member of the UPND – Alliance is of the view that the same measure President Hichilema used to condemn former president Edgar Chagwa Lungu should be the same scale to measure his international trips he is making.
“It is totally and completely hypocritical for Mr Hichilema to be doing the exact opposite or the same thing that he had previously criticised his predecessor of doing on the frequency of international travels,” he said.
The outspoken alliance partner said he was not criticising President Hichilema out8 of bitterness but his hypocritical behaviour.
“The rationale of criticism is that we will do things differently and behave differently. In a nutshell the public must now hold Mr Hichilema to his own words and behaviour and to his own words that he had previously used against former president Edgar Lungu. What is good for the goose should also be good for the gander,” Msoni said.
He said it was now clear that President Hichilema doesn’t mean well for Zambia and its citizens as he was now abusing public resources for his unending fruitless trips he was making since forming government.
Msoni has since urged President Hichilema to apologise to former President Lungu for condemning him over the foreign trips he made.
He said looking at the behaviour of President Hichilema,it is clear that he envied the trips and flying around the former President made then.
“Undoubtedly Mr Hichilema is now abusing public resources and as such must be held accountable. Zambia will not be built on double standards and hypocrisy. Undoubtedly Mr Hichilema owes Mr Lungu an apology for his needless criticism on his international travels. It is this kind behaviour and conduct that is undermining public confidence in the entire political leadership in the country,” said Msoni.
