Frank Bwalya repeats Kambwili’s tribal statement, says Jesus would get zeros in Southern Province

Patriotic Front Deputy Spokesperson Frank Bwalya has reiterated Information Minister Chishimba Kambwili’s tribal statements against the people of Southern Province.
And Bwalya has maintained that Jesus Christ would get zeros in Southern Province if he contested elections against the UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema.
Speaking when he featured on Pan African Radio on Wednesday morning, Bwalya claimed that there was nothing wrong with what Chishimba Kambwili said because whatever he said were facts.
‘My brother (Kambwili) never issued tribal remarks, it is a fact that 70 to 80 percent of votes for UNPD come from Southern Province, theses are facts,’ Bwalya claimed.
Bwalya claimed that whenever the PF government said a good thing the opposition called it tribal and further claimed that Zambians have not rejected President Lungu.
‘People lined up the road to welcome him when he toured Down Town Shopping mall that is what it is when you have not been rejected,’ Bwalya claimed.
The opposite of Bwalya’s claim however happened when President Lungu turned up to a near empty Heroes Stadium for the signing of the PF driven constitution amendment bill.
And Bwalya has maintained that Jesus Christ would get zeros in Southern Province if he contested elections against the UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema.
Bwalya said Jesus would however get substantial votes in Northern and Muchinga provinces if he contested elections against President Lungu.
‘Jesus would get zeros in Southern Province against Hichilema but would get substantial votes in Northern and Muchinga provinces if he stood against President Lungu,’ Bwalya maintained.
He further argued that it was not blasphemy to use Jesus Christ in such examples because he was both human and divine.
But Rome based Catholic Priest, Fr Ignatius Chinakila has stressed that it was wrong to use the name of Jesus in petty matters.
‘It is not okay for one to use the name of the Lord in vain, theologically speaking as a Catholic Priest, the use of the sacred name of Jesus should only be mentioned in speech/statements only when one needs to bless, praise and glorify and should not be used for trivial matters,’ Fr Chinakila said.
