NDC rubbishes PF claims that Kambwili is rejoining ruling partyBy Zondiwe Mbewe on 8 Feb 2018
NDC secretary general Mwenya Musenge says their political consultant Chishimba Kambwili cannot sink so low as to betray the aspirations of Zambians by seeking reconciliation with a party which has lost popularity.
And NDC officials have reported four Cabinet ministers and two opposition leaders to the Anti-Corruption Commission for abuse of office and public funds.
According to a statement, Monday, Musenge rubbished PF secretary general Davies Mwila’s claims that Kambwili had been sending emissaries to beg President Edgar Lungu to forgive him.
And in statement on Monday, NDC Secretary General Mwenya Musenge dismissed reports that Kambwili was seeking reconciliation with President Edgar Lungu saying they were signs of desperation from the ruling party.
“NDC wishes to dismiss reports that its consultant Dr Chishimba Kambwili has been using proxies to try and seek reconciliation with President Edgar Lungu. These are signs of desperation from the PF. Dr Chishimba Kambwili has never at any point sent proxies to try and seek reconciliation with President Lungu. It’s all lies. The reports attributed to PF Secretary General Davies Mwila at a public meeting in Kapiri Mposhi district are false and should be parried. At no point has Dr Kambwili used the clergy nor the traditional leadership to try and dialogue with Mr Lungu,” Musenge stated.
He stated that Kambwili could not sink so low to betray the aspirations of Zambians.
“In the first place, Dr Kambwili is allergic to the corruption associated with the governing party and his words should not be minced. Dr Kambwili cannot sink so low to betray the aspirations of the people of Zambia by backtracking and getting into a marriage of convenience with a political party that has lost popularity and credibility. Dr Kambwili is currently preoccupied with giving guidance and counsel to the NDC, a party that is growing at supersonic spread,” he stated.
Musenge asked the PF to stop making false claims on Kambwili but instead focus on answering to corruption allegations.
“The NDC therefore wishes to advise the PF not to bring the name of Dr Kambwili into disdain by making unpopular, ill timed and unsubstantiated grains of misinformation. Dr Kambwili is currently preoccupied with ensuring that the NDC remains a party of first choice and see the grouping transform from a mass movement into a vanguard party that will form Government in 2021,” stated Musenge.
“Therefore, the PF Secretary General should keep his lane and tell the people of Zambia why President Edgar Lungu is failing to fight corruption, poverty and social injustice. Mr Mwila should also explain how Lungu and his minions have suddenly become rich overnight using illicit resources. NDC is currently enjoying massive support from all corners of the country including the foreign front. Dr Kambwili therefore, has nothing to do with lies being peddled by the PF.”
And according to a statement issued by the NDC media team, Tuesday, the opposition party reported Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya, Minister of Infrastructure Ronald Chitotela, Community Development Minister Emerine Kabanshi and Luapula Province Minister Nixon Chilangwa for allegedly abusing their offices by campaigning using public resources.
“The National Democratic Congress has reported four Cabinet Ministers and opposition political leaders to the Anti Corruption Commission. The NDC want the named Cabinet Ministers to be prosecuted for abuse of office and public funds. The senior Government officials who have been reported include: Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya and his infrastructure counterpart Ronald Chitotela. Community Development Minister Emerine Kabanshi and Luapula province Minister Nixon Chilangwa,” stated the NDC media team.
“The quartet are alleged to have abused public funds, used Government vehicles and Zambia Air Force planes during their recent political campaign trail to Luapula province. The NDC has also reported opposition leaders Danny pule and Peter Chanda who were part of the group that accompanied the four PF cabinet Ministers to Luapula province.”
The NDC National leadership led by its Chairman for Defence and Security Menyani Zulu, party National Youth chairman Charles Kabwita, NDC National Chairlady Mary Banda and NDC National Finance Chairman Lombani Musichili reported the Ministers to ACC regional office in Kitwe.
