RB was better than Sata Frank Bwalya

Father Frank Bwalya says Former President Rupiah Banda was more tolerant to divergent views than President Michael Sata. Speaking in interview shortly after his release on bail by Kasama Magistrate Court, Father Bwalya said he was arrested on several times during the MMD government but never heard that Rupiah Banda had given instructions to any one.
” I was arrested during MMD government but the police could politely tell me to go home and come back I actually used to sign police bonds on my own but not now. The police were receiving phone calls every now and then. To tell you the truth RB (Rupiah Banda) was more tolerant than Sata” he said.
Father Bwalya said he is not surprised by what is happening to him because President Sata on November 13,2013 personally called him to threaten him.
” I’m not surprised at all because the President personally called me on November, 13 threatening me” he said.
Father Frank Bwalya appeared before the Kasama Magistrate Court today charged with an offense of defaming the President and will appear in court again on January 21, 2014.
“Yes I have been released on bail and will be back to court on 21 of this month.The Police were receiving instructions and they almost took me back to prison” he said.
