Nason Msoni has hit hard at President Edgar Lungu, saying the once God fearing man is no longer fit to lead the Republic of Zambia, after the Head of State’s utterances against the Bishops of three church mother bodies.
Msoni who leads a minor All People’s Congress Party, and heavily campaigned for President Lungu, regrets his support and says he cannot believe that citizens entrusted such an unreasonable leader with the highest office.
“The arrogance of President Edgar Lungu is striking and shocking. I do not believe this is the man citizens entrusted with the highest office of the land. The rejection and bare face effrontery to out-rightly rebuff and reject counsel from the three church mother bodies speaks volumes of what has become of the once upon a time God fearing man,” Msoni said.
“Now, he claims he is too busy to waste time to listen to the church leaders, and as far as he is concerned there is no crisis in Zambia. Well, it is apparent that his downfall is at hand. No Previous Zambian President has ever demeaned and treated the church leaders in this manner. He has insulted our spiritual leaders in the most unprecedented manner. President Edgar Lungu should demonstrate reasonableness by showing some level of respect for the church leaders.”
He said President Lungu’s reactions to the church leadership was a clear demonstration that he was no longer fit to be Head of State for the Republic of Zambia.
“First he denied them the benefit to accord them audience at State House and secondly he ridicules their counsel with contempt and dismisses any attempt to work towards finding a lasting political solution. The Church have no paymaster or interest in contesting for political power,” he observed.
“His outburst and belligerence is striking and shocking. It is obvious that he is no longer fit to sit in the coveted office of the President of the Republic of Zambia.”
He charged that President Lungu was busy striking deals with crooked investors, adding that he was a disappointment to many Zambians.
“He is able to find time to strike deals with crooks who by any standard should be in Prison for fraud but he has worked round it to save their skins. He has failed to treat our local entrepreneurs with kid gloves but instead he has been ruthless and opting to unleash police and state security to clump down their businesses and to confiscate their equipment with impunity.
His erroneous behaviour needs correcting before this country goes up in flames,” said Msoni.
“He is a bitter disappointment to many of our citizens. It is obvious that he came to politics to enrich himself. The man has no business being in politics. He is a paranoid dreamer living in his own world detached from reality.”
On Friday, Archbishop Telesphore Mpundu led three church mother bodies in declaring Zambia a full fledged dictatorship. They called for an all inclusive Indaba to end the prevailing political crisis that worsened with the arrest of UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema.
But on return from Lesotho, President Lungu said he had no time to waste at an Indaba without an agenda. He further said there was no political crisis in the country, adding that the political crisis existed in the heads of the church leaders who were speaking to please their paymasters.
