Kaunda says Sata is a great man who shouldn’t be criticised

Former dictator Kenneth Kaunda says the opposition should not criticize President Michael Sata because he is a great man who has saved Zambia’s economy from collapsing in the two years he has been in government.
During his 27 years of reign of terror, Kaunda never allowed criticism and those who tried disappeared at night.

And Kaunda has described some ministers who started the slogan of “President Michael Sata for 2016 ” as confused and foolish individuals because they did not consult President Sata before embarking on their campaign.

Kaunda, who was full of praise for President Michael Sata, was speaking yesterday in Kitwe during the 49th Independence anniversary celebrations which were held at Kitwe Playing Fields (KPF).

Kaunda said President Sata was a great man who had rescued Zambia from going into economic collapse and managed to put it on the World map when Zambia and Zimbabwe co-hosted the UN World Tourism Conference.

He said President Sata was a great man and should be commended because in the two years the Patriotic Front (PF) has been in government, he had changed the face of Zambia and had saved it from collapsing.

“Mwaice wandi Sata uli Mwaume/You are a great man. Am saying you are a great man because you have done a lot in the two years you have been in government. You have changed the face of Zambia. You have saved it from collapse. You put Zambia on the World map when you co-hosted UN-World Tourism Conference.

“In the whole world, there are only two black Presidents with white vice-presidents and these are Michael Sata and Barack Obama,” Kaunda said.

And Kaunda has described some ministers who started the slogan of “President Michael Sata for 2016 ” as confused and foolish individuals because they did not consult President Sata before embarking on their campaign.

Kaunda said it was shocking that some foolish individuals particularly some ministers decided to embark on a campaign of “Sata for 2016 ” which caused confusion in Lusaka when President Sata was in America.

Kaunda said he was happy that when President Sata returned from America, he dealt with the problem created by the “Sata 2016 campaign with a clear mind, clear thought and now everything was under control.

“When you went to America, some confused and foolish people, let me just say foolish ministers, launched a campaign called Sata for 2016 which created problems and confusion in Lusaka, but when you came back, you handled the matter with a clear thought, clear mind and everything is now under control,” Kaunda said.
