We are all equal, treat opposition fairly – Kambwili

Former Information and Broadcasting Minister Chishimba Kambwili: File picture

Chishimba Kambwili says a member of the opposition party is just as human as a member of the ruling party and deserves to be treated fairly.

In a statement shared on his Facebook Page, Kambwili warned against rejoicing over one another’s misery.

“Let the law take its course, but do not take it as a victory because it’s beyond you and I, an opposition member is just as human as a ruling party member. We tend to dance for joy when others are going through the toughest moments in their life, one street can house a wedding and a funeral on the exact same day. The moral of the story is that today it is me, but tomorrow it might be you … let us not lose the core value of humanity,” said Kambwili.

“The battle lines are only drawn three months before an election, as at now election time is over. The battle was fairly won, there’s more to life than constant fighting. If you are a doctor you should concentrate on saving lives, if you are a lawyer concentrate on winning cases, if you are a politician concentrate on serving the poor and needy, and most importantly if your a human being, empathise with your fellow beings. See you in 2021, when the battle lines will be drawn again.”

Africa/Zambia is better off being lead by a military or chiefs, wherein all those that break the rule of law, justice is always very fast and swift. The current case with the upnd could thus have by now been confined to history, as… Read more »
