FORMER president Frederick Chiluba on Monday charged that late president Levy Mwanawasa had turned the courts into a playing field like Nkana Stadium.
Chiluba said this when he addressed ex-miners in Chambishi Township.
“He just mentioned the late president (Mwanawasa) that in the eight years he was in power, he turned the courts like Nkana Stadium. I think it’s because he was going to court frequently,” said a source.
“Pali ba Sata, he said a lot of bad things, that he worked with him and that he cannot do anything, that he has no leadership qualities and that if given authority there is nathing he (Sata) will do for them. But clearly many of those who attended that meeting were not agreeing with him,” said the source.
The sources also said Chiluba refuted rumour among the ex-miners that K87 billion had been released for them saying if that was the case, President Rupiah Banda would have stood on a table to announce it.
“He just mentioned one mine dump that it will be given to the ex-miners so that they can operate it.
He promised to take all the requests to President Banda,” said the source.
