I’m President Lungu’s number one bootlicker – LusamboBy William Chileshe on 26 Nov 2017
If President Lungu says dance, I will dance; jump, I will jump because I am bootlicker number one for the Head of State, says Copperbelt minister Bowman Lusambo.
And Lusambo says President Lungu does not sleep in State House because he is busy working.
Speaking at the PF interactive forum at Protea hotel in Ndola today, Lusambo who is behind the worship phrase “great leader of this great country” for President Lungu said there was nothing wrong with bootlicking the Head of State.
“I have heard a lot of people say bootlicker, bootlicker! Yes, I am the number one. Number one bootlicker. I am now the number one bootlicker for President Edgar Chagwa Lungu,” Lusambo said.
“If he tells me to dance, I will dance. If he tells me to go this way I will go. If he tells me to jump, I do.”
He said bootlicking indicated loyalty.
“The only medicine in politics is loyalty. For me, I will remain loyal to President Edgar Lungu. That is what politics is about. Loyalty is politics. So we will remain loyal to the President,” he said.
And Lusambo said President Lungu does not sleep because he is busy working for the people.
He then mocked PF breakaway NDC party leader Chishimba Kambwili, saying people on the Copperbelt should look out for the new comedian.
“We have a gentleman here on the Copperbelt by the name of Chishimba Kambwili. That gentleman is making empty noise. If it’s true that he is popular, we could have seen activities because he is in Luanshya. He has failed to penetrate the Copperbelt. We need the drama of Kambwili in politics. We need him to entertain us,” Lusambo said.
“President Lungu is a hard worker. Instead of taking President Edgar Lungu to watch a movie for entertainment, we have a comedian Kambwili. We are enjoying his drama. People are enjoying his drama.”
He however warned that Kambwili should not abuse the police permits bu insulting President Lungu.
“When we give him permits, he insults President Lungu and me. I want to assure Kambwili that am the Copperbelt minister confirmed and signed. So ba Kambwili, am minister. Ba Kambwili, ifwe kuno (us here) as Copperbelt will not tolerate lawlessness. Am talking as minister,” said Lusambo.
“We have political history. They call me die-hard, not for nothing, that is history. But for Kambwili he has no political history. So he should not be making noise here on the Copperbelt. He should conduct himself in a better way.
As Copperbelt we are strong and intact. If elections were to be called today, Edgar Lungu will win because we don’t have opposition but jokers.”Related ItemsHeadlines
