Mafinga Member of Parliament Catherine Namugala has expressed sadness that a person she describes as ‘non-indigenous’ was acting as the President of Zambia.
Contributing to debate on the motion on President Sata’s legacy Wednesday afternoon, Namugal wondered whether Zambia was so stranded to the extent that a ‘non indigenous’ person was allowed to act as president but was quick to claim that she was not a racist.
“I am not racist but we can’t say we have failed to manage ourselves to an extent that we allow a non indigenous person to act as president,” Namugala said.
She said ‘the so called legal experts’ who have argued that the law allowed Guy Scott to act failed to advise President Sata when he was alive that Guy Scott could act as president.
She said power has now been ceded to a descendant of former colonial masters.
And Namugala has charged that foreigners who were reading about President Sata on the ‘Zambian watchdog’ before he died were now confused because of the praises being showered on him after his death.
She said President Sata should not be given accolades that he did not deserve and noted that the praises were creating an impression that Sata was an angel.
She said Sata will be remembered for his great sense of humour and for having had issues with people with bald heads.
Meanwhile, Kalomo Central Member of Parliament Request Muntanga has observed that President Sata’s life history that was presented at Heroes stadium indicated that he was born in 1937 and started school four years later in 1941.
Muntanga said there should be no exaggeration of what President sata was and stressed that it was not true that Sata started school at the age of four.
