It is unfortunate that Hon. Chishimba Kambwili has chosen a path of aggressive politics in addressing some national issues.
The statement from Hon. Kambwili that he will now engage in punch for punch politics against President Edgar Chagwa Lungu, the Great Leader of this great nation is laughable.
The truth remains that Hon. Kambwili cannot match up to the political credentials of President Lungu.
A punch for punch political fight between President Lungu and Hon. Kambwili will be a mismatch. It is like Floyd Mayweather fighting Connor McGregor. The entire nation knows who will be the ultimate winner. It will be a technical knockout with Hon. Kambwili on the floor.
I wish to warn Hon. Kambwili that continuing on this path will only leave him politically bruised. He should forthwith desist from attacking President Lungu as a person and as holder of the highest office in the land.
Zambians are not interested in knowing where President Lungu lived before entering State House. What majority of Zambians are interested in is to see to it that the current leadership improves the quality of life for all Zambians. Hon. Kambwili should be reminded that discussing President Lungu’s pre-State House lifestyle now will not translate into better livelihoods for the people of Roan Constituency.
President Lungu is busy transforming the fortunes of this great nation and he will not be sidetracked by irresponsible politicians like Hon. Kambwili. Just last week, President Lungu was launching the construction of the dual carriageway on the Great North Road.
Just over the last few months, President Lungu has on several occasions launched mega projects on the Copperbelt which has put Hon. Kambwili’s utterances of under development to shame.
No matter how lucid Hon. Kambwili wishes to be against President Lungu, the people of Zambia know that President Lungu was a prominent Lawyer at a well-established law firm in Lusaka and represented many Zambians and institutions who can today attest to his exceptional law practice.
Every right-thinking Zambia knows that successfully completing an LLB degree at the University of Zambia and further obtaining a law practice licence from ZIALE is not the same as stripping railway slippers off the railway line between Ndola and Luanshya commonly known as scrap.
I know Hon. Kambwili very well and I challenge him to appear with me on any radio or television talk show to discuss developmental projects scored under President Lungu. Failure to accept this invitation will leave me with no choice but to disclose details of Hon. Kambwili activities that border on criminal misconduct which I believe will warrant criminal prosecution.
On this current path, Hon. Kambwili is becoming useless to Zambia’s development discourse and he needs to take a hard look at his life before he becomes obsolete.
