Now Kambwili says Post blacked out Lungu’s speech

Information and Broadcasting Minister Chishimba Kambwili who is also government Spokesperson has now accused The Post Newspaper of blacking out President Lungu’s speech to the National Assembly.

And Kambwili has continued blaming Zambia’s poor economy on the Post Newspaper and claimed that he was feeling sorry for the Zambian people because the Post Newspaper was ‘damaging’ the economy through negative reports on President Lungu.

The speech was published by the Post and Zambian Watchdog in advance and State House Press Aid Amos Chanda had charged that the Post should be investigated for publishing the speech in advance.

Kambwili however hallucinated Wednesday morning when he featured on a Lusaka based local Radio Station that The Post did not publish President Lungu’s speech because it was too good for them.

Kambwili said it was a tradition world over for newspapers to cover keynote speeches by Presidents which are followed up by analysis of the speech but claimed that the Post Newspaper did not cover the speech for the first time but only picked out what he claimed was an innuendo that President Lungu did not mind going back to Chawama when he leaves office.

And Kambwili has continued blaming Zambia’s poor economy on the Post Newspaper and claimed that he was feeling sorry for the Zambian people because the Post Newspaper was ‘damaging’ the economy through negative reports on President Lungu.

‘ The Post are causing damage to the economy, the negative reports on President Lungu are affecting investment and the Post are doing it deliberately but people will suffer,’ Kambwili claimed.

Kambwili further reiterated his threats that he will invoke the provision of the law if the Post does not stop ‘attacking’ President Lungu.

‘All they write is that President Lungu is dreaming and he is Jameson, we will invoke the provision of the law if the Post does not change,’ said Kambwili.
