Judith Kapinjimpanga, the PF high commissioner to India says Roan PF Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili’s ‘outbursts’ against Indan Drivers who take up jobs meant for Zambians is ‘Strange’..
Kampinjimpanga says she is dismayed by what she called ‘unwarranted verbal attack’ by Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili directed at a person believed to be one of the numerous Indian origin working on the expansion of roads in Zambia.
“Mr. Kambwili understands the complaints procedure as former Minister of Labour and that his words are unwarranted in the eyes of the international community having served as Minister of Foreign Affairs too,” Zambia’s High Commissioner to India Judith Kapijimpanga said.
Mrs. Kapijimpanga added that Mr. Kambwili should have taken time to investigate whether the person operating the road compactor was not born and raised in Zambia.
“Mr. Kambwili is a wrong person to attack any nationality working in Zambia because his own spouse works in the United Kingdom and such outbursts threaten the lives of Zambians working abroad in case others retaliate,” she said.
Mrs. Kapijimpanga said pertinent issues that were meant to benefit the masses such as the decongestion of Lusaka Roads Project jointly funded by India and Zambia could not be resolved in an emotional way.
“Zambians have never looked at the colour of any person once having a white Republican Vice President Dr. Guy Scott, people of Indian origin such as Dipak Patel as former Commerce Minister and fomer Agriculture Minister, Suresh Desai who were elected by the people,” she said.
This was contained in a statement released by First Secretary Press and Tourism at the Zambian Mission in New Delhi, India, Bangwe Naviley.
ZWD Comment: Mrs Kampinjimpanga, just continue eating Chicken Tandoori in India and leave Mr Kambwili alone. As of now, Kambwili speaks for the masses, the jobless youths and struggling Zambian women while you speak for your tummy, family and your friends in PF. Kambwili was once like you, immune to the suffering of Zambians, but now his eyes are open. Kambwili might be brutal, but what do you expect people to do when the lie government is on the side of exploiters.
Talking about Kambwili’s wife in UK is simply stupid. There is not even a small possibility that Mrs Kambwili took up a job meant for a British citizen. That country has laws that put its people first. Foreigners take up residue jobs, those which local people can’t do or those that they create themselves. So please madam, behave yourself .
