PF youths warn Kambwili over insults
DO NOT dare us by clinging to PF seats while consistently insulting President Edgar Lungu and the party leadership and claiming Government is corrupt because you will not like us if we react, PF young strongman Francis Muchemwa has warned Chishimba Kambwili and Harry Kalaba. Mr. Muchemwa, who was also a mayoral hopeful in the Lusaka mayoral race which was won by Miles Sampa, yesterday said the PF had tried to remain patient and allow the due process of the law to take its course over the duo over their expulsions but that the two MPs were now taking courts for granted. He said it was sad that Mr. Kambwili and Mr Kalaba, who had made it clear that they would never work with the PF again because it was corrupt, had continued mobilising their political parties and declared themselves as presidential candidates in the 2021 election yet rushing to court to challenge their suspensions from PF. He said it was folly of the highest order for the duo to continue playing double standards over their standing with the PF and the state of their seats in parliament by refusing to allow by-elections to take place because they wanted to continue drawing salaries and allowances on the same party they were despising. “When they were expelled from the PF, they rushed to court because all they want is to continue getting salaries and allowances using the PF yet they are busy mobilising their political parties where they want to stand in 2021. “We want to go for by-elections in Roan and Bahati and these two individual must just own up and prove their worth in these two constituencies. We will not take it kindly on Mr. Kambwili and Mr. Kalaba if they continue to insult the same President and the party leadership which made them who they are today. They have their own parties and the only logical thing to do is to go for elections so that we see their popularity,” Mr. Muchemwa said. He warned the duo to stop toying around and abusing the court processes unnecessarily to buy their time in parliament but go for elections. “Our secretary general wrote to the Speaker of the National Assembly to declare Mr. Kambwili’s seat vacant so that a by-election can take place and we did not expect him to rush to court. He has been bragging that he is popular. Why can’t he allow a by-election to take place? “On the other hand, Mr. Kambwili and Mr. Kalaba have been saying that the PF is corrupt and they cannot work with it. Why are they clinging to the seats of a corrupt party? They have continued insulting the President but now we are warning them to stop it failure to which we will react,” he warned.
