PF-aligned parties ask Matibini to throw out impeachment motionBy Sipilisiwe Ncube on 28 Mar 2018
Seven PF-aligned opposition political parties have petitioned Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini to throw out the UPND’s motion of impeachment.
This is according to the petition submitted to Parliament, Tuesday, and signed by Zambian Republican Party leader Wright Musoma, New Congress Party leader pastor Peter Chanda, Citizens Democratic party leader Robert Mwanza, New Revolution party Cosmo Mumba, Zambia DNA leader Skuki Mulemwa, Zambia Direct Democracy Movement leader Edwin Sakala, and Network for Young People Against Violence leader Moses Kalonde.
The opposition political parties argued that the UPND was deliberately abusing democracy by attempting to disrupt “smooth governance”.
“We the undersigned hereby petition the Speaker of the National Assembly to dismiss the impeachment motion filed by the UPND to impeach President Edgar Lungu. We are of the view that the impeachment motion is an abuse of parliament, misplaced ill conceived and lacks merit as the Republican president has not committed any crime to warrant such actions,” they argued.
They urged the UPND to allow President Lungu to discharge his duties without being disturbed.
“We are alive to the fact that Zambia is a democratic country but the UPND and their allies are deliberately abusing that democracy by attempting to disrupt the smooth governance of this great nation through frivolous and vexious moves such as the impeachment motion which has the potential of diving the country. In the foregoing, we are urging all the other MPs to dismiss the motion with the contempt it deserves. If the UPND haven’t got better things to do, let them allow President Lungu to discharge his duties diligently. He is the chosen one by the Zambian people,” stated the opposition.
