The Patriotic Front on the Copperbelt says Zambians should stop paying attention to former Minister of Works and Supply Mike Mulongoti alleging that he is a discredited figure who only participates in the political affairs of the country to serve his selfish interest.
In statement to ZANIS in Lusaka today, PF Copperbelt Youth Secretary Chanda Kabwe said Mr Mulongoti is a spent force who will never find credible space in the Zambian political landscape because he participated in bringing the country to its knees under the MMD rule.
Mr Kabwe added that Mr Mulongoti presided over the Ministry of Works and Supply when corruption was at its peak in the country.
He stated that Mr Mulongoti joined the PF campaign after he was left politically stranded when he was expelled from the MMD and did not hesitate to use his association with the PF for his survival by feeding on the party’s unsuspecting well-wishers.
Mr Kabwe further said that Mr Mulongoti is a political scavenger whose sole purpose of being in politics is for personal benefit and does not care about the common good of the country.
He added that Mr Mulongoti lacks sufficient credibility to command a following among Zambians and his political career is as good as over to the extent that no amount of “lumpen” antics will revive his depleted relevance on the political scene.
However, efforts to get a comment from Mr Mulongoti proved futile by press time as his mobile was not reachable.
