UPND MP BOOED
constituents faced the absentee parliamentarian without fear and that he just stood quietly without an explanation.
According to the source, the MP has since been assured that he was not coming back after the 2021 general elections.
“People did not fear him, they told him that come 2021 you will not come back because you have failed as our MP. You are a complete embarrassment to the people of this district. Even in Parliament you don’t talk, what kind of an MP are you?” they asked.
When contacted, Mr Sialubalo denied ever being embarrassed by constituents and that he was not an absent MP.
He claimed that everything went on smoothly as planned and that nothing embarrassing had happened during the visit.
“Nothing, nothing of that sort happened during my visit. Actually I have just arrived from my constituency,” said Mr Sialubalo.
Meanwhile, the Patriotic Front (PF) in Southern Province has cautioned Mr Sialubalo not to incite residents to turn against the government.
At the weekend, the Sinazongwe MP was quoted on one of the television stations in Lusaka of having told the people of Sinazongwe to pray to the gods commonly known as "Nyami nyami" to drink all the water in the Kariba Dam following the extension of the fish ban by government. He was also quoted as having told the people of Sinazongwe to blame the government over the fish ban which he alleges has brought suffering to the people in the area as they depend mainly of fishing.
But reacting to the sentiments, PF provincial youth chairman Obby Mweemba consoled Mr. Sialubalo not to take that route of politics of inciting people.
"I want to warn the MP for Sinazongwe not to incite people to rise against government over the fish ban. If he feels aggrieved, he should engage the relevant ministry other than inciting people," he said.
Mr. Mweemba pleaded with the people of Sinazongwe not to listen the UPND Sinazongwe lawmaker because he was misleading them.
