PF Activist BonnieTembo says the disparaging remarks that Alliance for Better Zambia (ABZ) leader Fr. Frank Bwalya is making are causing pressure to ailing dictator Michael Sata and the entire PF hierarchy and has since called on the cleric to get back to the pulpit.
Tembo has advised the outspoken Catholic Priest to tone down his language because his disparaging remarks against President Michael Sata’s administration and the entire PF party officials are in bad taste.
Tembo regretted that the prominent clergyman has abandoned the church in preference to politics. He was speaking in an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka yesterday.
The disgraced former Anti-Voter Apathy Project (AVAP) Executive Director, said it was too early for fr. Bwalya to vie for presidency in the country instead of climbing through the ranks in the political arena.
“It is unfortunate that fr. Bwalya could abandon the pulpit in preference for politics when there are millions of people wanting to know God. My advice to him is to be level headed and tone down his language especially against the Head of State because his sentiments are tantamount to a felony offense,” Mr Tembo said.
He lashed out at Fr. Bwaya and told him to test the strength of ABZ in the forthcoming series of by elections that will be held across the country if at all he will get a single vote from the Zambian people.
Fr. Bwalya recently stepped down from the Zesco board and the Catholic Clergy has opted to publicly denounce the Patriotic Front Government accusing it of not delivering to its campaign promises a move that has received huge criticism from the Sata himself and other PF members.
