UPND sad that PF was justifying Kambwili’s tribal remarks, demand for President Lungu to act

The United Party for National Development (UPND) has expressed disappointment with PF members who are defending Information Minister Chishimba Kambwili’s tribal remarks.
And the UPND has demanded that President Lungu must act and publicly and categorically state his position over Kambwili’s abuse of public media to divide the country.
UPND Youth Chairperson Likando Mufalali said in a statement that it was sad that some overzealous PF members are defending and justifying Kambwili’s demeaning remarks targeted at the people of Southern Province.
‘It is now clear that PF including PF Presidential candidate Edgar Lungu agree with us Zambians that their Kambwili demeaned a certain tribe and they do not have regrets with that,’ Mufalali said.
He said the statement uttered by Kambwili regardless of which tribe it was targeted at, the UPND youths find it divisive, uncalled for and an affront to the country’s peace and unity the country was enjoying.
Mufalali noted that the ZNBC news preamble was the ‘one Zambia one nation’ slogan but Kambwili was using it to incite tribal division and hatred in the country and stressed that the PF has realised that Zambians are no longer on their side hence insulting them tribally.
He has urged the PF to replace their leadership of obsession with politics of passion for development for all Zambians.
And the UPND has demanded that President Lungu must act and publicly and categorically state his position over Kambwili’s abuse of public media to divide the country.
‘We demand that President Lungu must publicly and categorically state his position over Kambwili’s abuse of the public media to divide the country and take appropriate action against PF members who have gone on rampage promoting primitive, divisive and tribal politics,’ Mufalali demanded.
Mufalali said if President Lungu does not act Zambians will conclude that he was sending a veiled message and what was being witnessed has his blessing.
