UPND vice president for political affair Canisius Banda has described as grossly misleading the lead story in today’s edition of the Post Newspaper in which the UNPD is quoted to have referred to former PF Secretary General and Justice Minister Wynter Kabimba as a national Builder.
In the same article UPND Deputy Spokesperson Cornelius Mweetwa, who also the chairperson for the African Parliamentarians Network Against Corruption (APNAC) Zambia chapter, is also quoted to have said that Mr. Kabimba will be missed by stakeholders involved in the anti-corruption crusade.
But Dr. Banda told Qfm news in an interview that the said article should be disregarded with the contempt it deserves as Mr. Mweetwa did not say what has been written in the newspaper article.
Dr. Banda said as far as the UPND is concerned Mr. Kabimba has been a divisive factor in Zambian politics.
He said while PF Secretary General and Justice Minister, Mr Kabimba spent most of his time insulting not only the UPND and its leader Hakainde Hichilema but also the Zambian people.
Dr Banda said Mr. Kabimba should repent and apologize to God and seek forgiveness for his alleged offensiveness and arrogance.
Mr. Banda said the UPND is thus praying for Mr. Kabimba to become more humble and a better citizen, stating that his dismissal is a chance for him to reflect over his alleged bad deeds.
