Mapatizya Member of Parliament, Ackson Sejani has charged that the close relationship between president, Rupiah Banda and second republican president, Dr Fredrick Chiluba will greatly cost the nation.
Mr. Sejani says president Banda should realize that Zambians are not interested in his relationship with Dr. Chiluba.
He says Dr. Chiluba’s alleged corrupt background leaves much to be desired and that it worries the people of Zambia to see the head state have a close association with the former president.
He says the close relationship between president Banda and Dr Chiluba clearly demonstrates that the MMD government is no longer interested in fighting corruption and is ready to embrace people accused of plundering the nation%u2019s resources.
Mr. Sejani says it is evident that president Banda does not want to deal with the corruption in the government despite promising to uphold the legacy of his late predecessor Levy Mwanawasa.
