Featuring on an internet based Crossfire Blogtalk radio beamed on some local radio stations, Kambwili said the Zambian Watchdog is always writing things against government and is a UPND propaganda publication.
Kambwilie defended his regime’s record saying they were doing a good. He however rejected assertions that ‘seleni tubombeko‘ is the new PF slogan.
He called Fr Bwalya a disgruntled priest who was being misled by “bitter’ and “frustrated” elements.
Kambwili said Fr Bwalya was deceiving himself that he was any popular because even when he worked with the opposition before 2011, his rallies and presence of supporters were supplemented by the PF.
“We are extremely stable and firm on the ground. We have an elaborate political and economic program that we are achieving. The problem in Zambia is even useless people like the disgruntled priest can cheat you,” he said.
“I have been paying rent for Fr Bwalya. When God wants to bewitch you he confuses you. How can he the Fr deny he was not my friend. I called him a lunatic.
“I have no regret, I am not withdrawing my sentiments and I think the Father is getting mad. There are a lot of people who have changed jackets and gone mad. He is overrating himself and thinks he wants to be president,” he said.
On the Watchdog, Kambwili said ; “When you read online newspapers like Zambian Watchdog and Lusaka Times, you will think Zambia is on fire more especially the Watchdog, its a UPND propaganda so what they write is against the government.”
Kambwili however cut the line when listeners and presenters challenged him on the PF record.
