Fr. Frank Bwalya, the man Chishimba Kabwili accused of having wanted to form a political party much earlier so that a Tonga does not rule, has now been accused of being a Tonga himself.
According to the government owned but PF controlled Zambia Daily Mail of yesterday, Fr. Bwalya wants to work with UPND president Hakainde Hichilema because his father is Tonga from Pemba District in Southern Province.
But another PF mouth piece, the Post newspaper, quotes Sports Minister Chishimba Kambwili as saying he was approached by Fr. Bwalya to form a political party so that Tonga does not rule.
Fr Bwalya has strongly been criticising President Sata and saying the Sata people voted for ‘died’ a long time ago.
“I am back. I apologise to UPND leader HH and MMD President Dr Nevers Mumba for not speaking out for them when they were arrested on flimsy charges on Livingstone and Kitwe, respectively,” he said.
Fr Bwalya also said people were losing hope in the PF and the promises the party made even in terms of the fight against corruption, citing President Sata’s statement advising the Anti-Corruption Commission to notify him before investigating ministers which he hoped was a slip of the tongue.
Fr Bwalya wants to form a political party and stand for presidency in 2016.
