Even mangoes have disappeared under PF – Nevers Mumba

MMD President Nevers Mumba has observed that most Zambians are now finding President Sata’s comments on the constitution making process irritating.

In an interview, Dr Mumba said President Sata’s recent comments on the constitution are also distressing Zambians.

He said most Zambians are also irritated by President Sata’s level of arrogance over the constitution making process.

He said President Sata has shown a lot of disrespect and contempt to the Zambian people who elected him into office.

“Zambians are very distressed by the behaviour of this President, his altitude to the Zambian people, his arrogance, his disrespect, his contemptuous talk continues to irritate Zambians,” Dr Mumba said.

Dr Mumba was reacting to President Sata latest remarks that proponents of a people driven constitution must first show him an animal driven constitution before demanding for a people driven one.

“I think that God has allowed him to lose his way because I can’t imagine a President making such comments. What Zambians are saying is that look, we want a better constitution in which we participate in its formulation,” Dr Mumba said.

He added, “For him to make such comments shows arrogance of the highest level. I appeal to the President to be presidential about this matter. We are determined to have a new constitution, with or without him anyway.”

“I think that God has allowed him to lose his way because I can’t imagine a President making such comments. What Zambians are saying is that look, we want a better constitution in which we participate in its formulation,” Dr Mumba said.

And speaking when he addressed a campaign rally in Katuba constituency Thursday afternoon, Dr Mumba stated that Zambians have themselves to blame for sufferings brought about by the PF government.

Dr Mumba said the many lies told by the PF during the 2011 campaigns were believed by so many Zambians.

“He tried to be President of this country in 2011, 2006 and 2008 and you Zambians rejected him. He then went to Chitulika village to find out how he could win a general election in this country. He was told to just go back to the Zambians and lie to them and so in 2008 he started going round the country telling lies,” Dr Mumba said.

He added, “People are not happy because they have no money in their pockets, Mealie meal prices are up, insults are the order of the day in this country. There is too much intolerance in Zambia today because the Bible says when the evil men rule, people cry and when the righteous rule, people rejoice.”

Dr Mumba said, “Mr Sata came all the way from Chitulika village to Chibombo in 2011 promising that he would give you more money in your pockets, a new constitution in 90 days and that he would create jobs for the youth, Mealie prices and bus fares would reduce.”

The MMD leader stated that Mr Sata was such a good liar that he managed to convince millions of citizens to vote for him in 2011.

“I met somebody in Solwezi who told me that President Sata is a man, he said you Dr Mumba who can’t match up to Mr Sata. He said Mr Sata singlehandedly managed to lie to the entire nation including the rich in posh cars and suits.

“Somebody asked me as a Reverend of 30 years why things are not going well in Zambia since the PF came into power. Why does everything seem so dark? He said Mealie meal prices are now at K 80, agriculture crops are not growing and he asked for my thoughts. I told them that there is something that Zambians did wrong and that we have to change that for us to win favour from the Lord and that is the issue of leadership, we gave leadership to evil men.”

He continued, “How many people have died here in Chibombo on that road, so much blood has been shed, It looks like God has forsaken us in Zambia even Mangoes have disappeared in PF when during the MMD, mango trees were full of the fruit, even mushrooms have refused to grow this year.”

He charged that Zambians have themselves to blame for finding themselves in the current mess.

He urged the electorate in Katuba to vote for MMD candidate Cecil Homes in Tuesdays by election as a way of saying no to the PF mismanagement of national affairs.
