Opposition political parties urged to respect President Rupiah Banda

By Zumani Katasefa

MMD Bulaya ward councillor in Lufwanyama district on the Copperbelt province of Zambia has urged opposition political parties to respect President Rupiah Banda.

In an interview with the UKZAMBIANS news in Kitwe yesterday (Thursday) Hensen Mwansa said Zambians politicians should learn to practice politics of maturity.

“What I see in Zambia, is politics of insult, let us learn to be matured, there are a lot of issues that political leaders should be talking about not always insulting the Head of State, “he said.

He said the country would not develop if Zambians especially the politicians do not change their mind sets.

“There is need for the change of the mind sets be it the Church, politicians or ordinary Zambians,” he said.

He further urged President Banda’s administration not to be complacent with its small achievements./Ends

One response to “Opposition political parties urged to respect President Rupiah Banda”

  1. Pazu says:

    Vice-President Kunda’s attacks on PF leader Michael Sata, whom Kunda described as a mad man, Musenge urged Kunda to realise he was Republican Vice-President and that his conduct therefore needed to be above board. Speaking when he addressed a rally at Changanamai grounds in Kwacha East on Tuesday, Vice-President Kunda alleged that Sata was mad and his party had been raising funds from foreign powers that have legalised homosexuality.

    Vice-President Kunda further charged that Sata was a hard-core criminal. The Vice-President used abusive language against MMD opponents throughout his speech.

    “Let me now address you about the behaviour of Michael Chilufya Sata. Sata is mad. In fact, HH has revealed he walked out of the pact because Sata was using the pact to raise funds for homosexual activities from foreign powers that allow the practice in their countries,” Vice-President Kunda alleged. He also claimed Colonel Panji Kaunda was a disgrace to the military profession.

    “Lastly let me talk about this man Panji Kaunda. Panji has been advocating violence, bloodshed. Panji is a colonel, very well trained, there (military) they teach discipline. How can he advocate bloodshed? Panji, Panji, Panji, Panji, sure! Why? We have only restrained ourselves because he comes from a dignified family but we will take him on if he continues attacking us,” he said. “We know he is broke, that is why he is attacking us, we are not responsible for his suffering, the economy is booming, let him just work hard.”

    But Musenge said it was embarrassing for Vice-President Kunda to be insulting opponents.

    “It is embarrassing for him to be showering insults at his perceived or actual opponents. It is an embarrassment not only to the MMD but to the nation at large because the man is a Republican Vice-President,” Musenge said.

    He said that at his level, Vice-President Kunda needed to be in the forefront, articulating issues and not fabricating lies against his opponents.
