Hardly a week after the political parties Indaba that called for civil political discourse, PF Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri this morning revealed her hatred for UPND President Hakainde Hichilema on Joy FM radio when she said “I feel like vomiting whenever I hear the name ‘HH”.
Apparently Mumbi Phiri is president Edgar Lungu’s escort girl and was actually in the same meeting that resolved and called for an end to hate speech as one way of ending political violence.
Mumbi Phiri is the same person who coined the infamous phrase ridiculing the UPND leader Mr. Hichilema that a Kachema (cattle herder) would not be allowed to rule this country.
And a few months ago, Mumbi Phiri escorted Edgar Lungu to the Vatican in Rome where she was kissing the feet of the Holy father Pope Francis but today she can openly utter such words on public radio expressing her hatred on a mere political opponent to the point of vomiting him.
On the radio platform, she was expected to campaign and point out the PF economic solutions especially with the current economic crisis including high mealie meal prices and shortages that have rocked the country due to massive PF exports of the commodity.
It is only hoped that radio station managers around the country can take note of Mumbi Phiri, FrankBwalya and the likes of Chishimba Kambwili’s hate messages and possibly ban and leave them with their mouth piece of ZNBC where all sorts of hate language against opponents is allowed uncensored instead of articulating real issues affecting the people.
