The Ruling Patriotic Front (PF) has warned the United Party for National Development (UPND) to stop continuous unwarranted verbal attacks on government and the party but direct these energies toward developing the constituency.
in a walk-in interview today, Bweengwa PF Constituency Chairman Mr Mainza Kabwata observed that the opposition leadership has on many occasions especially during funerals allegedly hailed vulgar language against the PF and its party leadership, a habit that has continued to rile the ruling party.
Mr. Kabwata also strongly advised the opposition lawmakers in the District to concentrate on bringing much needed development lacking in their constituencies rather than spend time insulting the ruling party adding that the electorates cannot “eat insults” but want development.
The Constituency Chairman noted that a lot of bridges and roads in most parts of the District were in deplorable state adding that these are issues that the law makers should spend their energy on instead of insulting the government whenever an opportunity presents itself.
“I want to warn the UPND leadership at District level that the PF will no longer tolerate insults from the opposition. My better advice to UPND law makers in the District is that time is running out for them, let them direct their energies to bring development to electorates who voted from them and not insults,” said Mr. Kabwata.
He said the PF government has brought much development such as the Roads, health facilities, schools among others projects in the District and urged people to judge between opposition UPND which is good at insults and the PF which has demonstrated the ability to bring development and not insults.
And Mr. Kabwata vehemently denied allegations that the Party was buying voters cards from people rubbishing such talks as cheap.
He explained that the party’s constitution provides for the establishment of a registers of all its members and that it was not collecting or buying voter’s cards as propagated by the UPND.
He further advised the opposition UPND to learn to speak the truth saying people of Zambia are tired of raw lies from the opposition political party
“I want to categorically state that at no time did our party buy or collect any person’s voter’s card in the District. What we are doing is simply registering people who are joining us all and I don’t think there is anything sinister about that,” said Mr. Kabwata.
