The statement from State House is the most BLATANT admission of complicity in the occurrence of bye-elections following poaching of MPs by PF because there is a lacuna (legally exploitable weakness) in the law. Where is YOUR MORAL LEADERSHIP MR. PRESIDENT? It is no different from a bread winner who chooses to spend on alcohol from a licensed bar or outlet when he has critically ill patients on oxygen in I. C. U. at UTH or other hospital because he chooses to do so?
In fact your “bread winner” role is only an elective privilege given to you in trust and not a birth right. Our health, economic, communication and other social infrastructure is in a deplorable state but you choose to twist the arms of “hungry” (because they owe CEEC and other govt agencies) opposition MPs inducing bye-elections to boost numbers to manipulate the constitutional process.
SHAME ON YOU MR PRESIDENT! THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT YOU ARE DOING NOW AND WHAT KK DID IN THE LATE 60S/EARLY 70S THAT CULMINATED INTO THE ONE PARTY STATE ON 13TH DECEMBER 1972. You have just varied the tools. YOU CHEATED THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND THROUGH IT “USED GOD’S NAME IN VAIN” TO CHEAT ZAMBIA THAT YOU ARE AN UPRIGHT LEADER. STOP ENGINEERING THESE BYE-ELECTIONS AND PLEASE GIVE US A LEGITIMATE SUBSTANTIVE CHIEF JUSTICE. Let Judge Lombe Chibesakunda go and enjoy her retirement as per constitutional provisions governing the office of C. J.
