Reacting to today’s article in the Post newspapers suggesting that he is campaigning and positioning himself to succeed President Michael Sata, Mr. Kambwili has accused the Post Newspapers of having a negative agenda against him.
The outspoken Minister has told QFM News that he will no waste much of his time to responding to what he has described as nonsense.
Mr. Kambwili says President Sata has never at anytime said that he has presidential ambitions as reported in the Post newspapers.
The Roan Member of Parliament states that he is very comfortable with his current Cabinet portfolio and will rally behind President Michael Sata to grow the party to greater heights.
Meanwhile, Mr. Kambwili says he is ready to give evidence to the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) on allegations of corruption against former Justice Minister and Patriotic Front Secretary General Wynter Kabimba.
Mr. Kambwili says he will willingly provide the ACC with the evidence if requested to do so.
It is not clear why Kambwili is not reporting Kabimba to ACC as provided by the law, especially that he is a PF insider.
It is also not clear why Kambwili has been quiete on Kabimba’s corrupt practices until now.
Many stakeholders have so far been saying PF government is very corrupt but it seems one only becomes more corrupt when they have fallen out of favour, like was the case with former defence Minister Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba.
We hope the ACC can take up the matter and ask Kambwili for information on Kabimba’s corruption, especially on companies such as Midlands Energy and the one he is running with president Sata, Ilunda Chalo investments.
