The PF regime says it was wrong for the lodge where former first lady Christine Kaseba was staying to evict her.
Chief PF Government spokesperson, Chishimba Kambwili, said it was not government’s intention to see Mrs Sata evicted by the proprietors of the lodge which was being rented by government for the Sata family.
‘As government, it was not intentional to embarrass the former first lady. It is the responsibility of government to find a house for the first lady of the late President,’’ Mr. Kambwili said.
He added that it was not fair to treat senior citizens in the manner the owner of the lodge directly went to the former first lady and told her to vacate the residence.
Maybe Kambwili wanted the lodge to send a cleaner or waiter to tell Dr Kaseba that she must leave since government had not paid her rent.
Mr. Kambwili hoped that the proprietors did not do that to embarrass government, adding that, the Sata family held a very special place to the Patriotic Front-PF party because former President Michael Sata was the founder of the organisation.
He said there was no way government would neglect payment of rentals resulting into the eviction of the former first lady from the lodge.
“To the Sata family we say sorry and government will make sure that it quickly looks for another house,” Mr. Kambwili said.
