PRESIDENT HICHILEMA MUST FIRE CORNELIUS MWEETWA

UPND IS EVIL

We are shocked at the media statement issued by Chief Government Spokesperson and Minister of Information and Media, Cornelius Mweetwa.

Mweetwa has disclosed that the UPND deployed Hon. Chishimba Kambwili into the 2021 elections to undermine the Patriotic Front and Edgar Lungu’s re-election campaign.

Of worry is the serious revelation by Mweetwa that the UPND approved the strategy of Kambwili using tribal remarks against the Tonga people.

This is evil and demonstrates the extent to which the UPND was willing to go to win national elections, including dividing this country or plunging this country into ethnic conflict.

Sadly, the UPND has relentlessly pursued Hon. Chishimba Kambwili, despite him being their alleged deployee, by prosecuting him, jailing him and even appealing against the decision of the Kasama Court to punish him with five months imprisonment. As if this is not enough, they have even appealed against the sentence,which they deem was a light sentence.

This behaviour by Mweetwa Sadly reflects the perspective of President Hakainde Hichilema. His entire talk about peace and unity and bringing about a One-Zambia One-Nation, is increasingly deemed as bogus.

Recently, Minister of Education, Douglas Siakalima issued tribal and demeaning statements against the people of Luapula.

President Hichilema took no action and did not issue a public reprimand against Siakalima.

The civil service has suffered a tribal and ethnic purge where upto 400 public officers are parked at Public Service Management Division and Cabinet Office on mere account of what is now established as ethnic basis on the pretext and false allegation that they were members of the Patriotic Front.

Therefore the statement by Cornelius Mweetwa demonstrates how dangerous the UPND, as a ruling party, are to the national-building and national unity of Zambia.

We expect that instead of dismissing an official like Cornelias Mweetwa for this dangerous talk, he probably is receiving official praises from President Hakainde Hichilema.

Zambians must remember that our founding father Dr. Kenneth Kaunda warned us about the divisive traits he saw in President Hakainde Hichilema which are becoming manifest in his appointments, dismissals, actions and tribal talk.

Zambia needs a President who will unite this country, who will heal the festering wounds of ethnic divisions and who will build bridges to maintain our cherished peace, security and unity.

In this regard, President Hichilema has no choice but to dismiss Mweetwa or it will be concluded that he is an accomplice to this dangerous talk.

  1. Mr. Mwamba, these are politics and only politicians do understand. Despite what Hon Mweetwa has said, Kambwili was PF sponsored project. PF and not UPND bought him a personal to holder helicopter. The time UPND won the elections, Kambwili had already left the alliance meaning that there is nothing he did for UPND. He equally failed to deliver Northern to PF.

Kambwili worked tirelessly thinking that he was working against HH and yet he was destroying Lungu and the PF.

  3. The Head line should be “PF GETS A TASTE OF ITS OWN MEDICINE” if an independent journalist had written the article. But when you want to shave your own hair using a mirror. This is what happens

  4. Caution must be taken when issuing Public statements on behalf of governmemt.

    Unthought through statements in a surge of heightened emotions is very dangerous.

    Currently the impression created is not only devastating but deceptive to the masses. There should be restraint not to taint this overly criticized administration.

    Of what benefit to us are some of these statements? Is it meant to hit back at the opposition. Unfortunately this carelessness will come back to bite the image and integrity of a team working hard to set many things right.

    Why not use these platforms for objective and strategic policy announcements. Responding to every thing the opposition says may not be beneficial as they can side track this administration to follow useless and unprofitable discussions. Keep your eyes on the ball. Distraction is also a strategy to get an opponent off their intended goals.

    It appears chaos is currently raging in the political space. We need some sanity. This illogical attacking and rebuffing is not impressing the masses at all.

    What happened to intelligent and cordial interactions?
