BALLY WILL FAIL ON HIS OWN – NAKACINDA
……as he laughs off the President’s claim that other countries want him to help them achieve what he has achieved for Zambia
Lusaka…. Thursday, September 22, 2022 (Smart Eagles)
There are things that a Head of State should never say about other countries, Hon Raphael Nakacinda says after President Hakainde Hichilema reportedly boasted that other countries want him to help them achieve what he has done for Zambia.
The PF Chairperson for Information and Publicity said one year of government has proven that President Hichilema has no clue on state craft.
He said the opposition PF is concerned about the propaganda that is being championed by the UPND suggesting that there could be people, for political reasons, that may want to make the country ungovernable.
He said this as he left the Lusaka Magistrates Court after commencement of trial in a matter in which he has been charged with defamation of the President.
The charge emanated from Hon Nakacinda’s statement where he alleged that President Hichilema is summoning judges at his house.
“I want to state that the duty and responsibility for every citizen is to contribute to the development of this country. Even in our provision of checks and balances, having been in government, the last thing we would ever want to do is to undermine the current government,” he said.
“If the UPND fail, they will not fail because they have been undermined, they will fail because they have been incompetent themselves. For us we are committed to the ideology of appreciating democratic governance system that we have adopted for ourselves.”
Hon Nakacinda said PF will provide critical checks and balances and will never undertake criminal activities to undermine government.
“Mr Hakainde Hichilema will fail on his own. One year in government has already demonstrated that he has no clue on state craft. Where he is he is reported saying that other countries want to ask him to copy what he has done for Zambia which goes on fly straight into the teeth of diplomatic etiquette,” he said.
“There are things that a Head of State should never say about other countries. And to hear those statements, some of which are being peddled excitedly so by praise singers is going to just undermine the office of the President which is very unfortunate.”
