Lungu mocks Kambwili: Those who are unhappy with dialogue are ranting like wild rabid dogsBy Joseph Mwenda and Mukosha Funga on 28 Jun 2017
In this audio, President Edgar Lungu says those who are unhappy that he went to resolve the infighting in the PF on the Copperbelt are now ranting like wild rabid dogs, in apparent reference to Roan member of parliament Chishimba Kambwili.
Kambwili yesterday said the only way that confusion would end among PF members on the Copperbelt was if the Head of State dismissed provincial minister Bowman Lusambo.
When the President Arrived in Ndola for the 2017 Trade Fair, this afternoon, Lusambo told him that he would soon be exposing the perpetrators of confusion on the province.
“When you came you sat us down and as provincial minister, I want to thank you, I want to salute you for that. I can assure you that this province will never be the same. We know the people who were behind those issues which you came to address and very soon, we will be exposing those people to the people of Zambia, the people who want to sabotage your efforts which you are giving to this country through development and uplifting the lives of our people,” said Lusambo to President Lungu at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport.
In reaction President Lungu gave an analogy implying that some people were hopping that he could fire Lusambo so that they could take over.
“Let me emphasize that when you are divided, your enemies are very happy. When there is bickering in the family, you discover that your enemies enjoy and celebrate. When they see you uniting, they get sick. Those who are not happy as a result of the effort that we made of trying to dialogue are busy ranting like wild rabid dogs; you can tell and we can see them and you can know them. Chaba shani imwe? Abanenu balefwaya ukuteka nga imwe chinshi chashupa? Even pa ng’anda nga muleunfwana nabakashi, abengi tabatemwa. Nga mwapusana ninshi baunfwa bwino, ati limbi balamutamfya tupyaneko,” President Lungu said.
Take a Listen:
He said running a country was a difficult task.
“I want to make this very clear, to those of you who have never been in leadership, ala ukuteka kwalishupa pantu bengi bafwaya uku ingilapo. So ba chairman, ba provincial minister, whatever position you occupy in the province, be reminded that bengi bapafwaya. What they want is to dissolve the committees and bring new people hoping that they can plant their own people in these committees. That we know so when things are going wrong, they encourage that wrong thing. All I can say is that bane, ba provincial, ba district, ba constituency, kuno kumyensu ku Copperbelt you are under probation. We will guide you, we will advise you. Nga mwafilwa mweka pakati, you will have to go,” said the President.
“But we know that when we separate, you have to be careful, the enemy within is more dangerous. Abantu abaunaula umutende abantu muikala nabo. So let me warn you that we did not come to destroy, we came to build. So there is a point beyond which I can say I cannot take this anymore but for now, the Copperbelt, we are with you.”
