Youth and Sport Minister, Chishimba Kambwili, says he is not worried about Republican President Michael Sata’s sentiments that some Patriotic Front (PF) members of parliament are useless as he is very much useful.
Mr. Kambwili says he has no reason to worry about the President’s remarks because he has been working very hard to represent people in his constituency.
The minister was speaking in Luanshya when he donated 440 mathematics and science text books to Roan Antelope and Twashuka Secondary Schools yesterday.
Mr. Kambwili noted that President Sata’s remarks were timely as there were many MPs who have relaxed after being elected into office.
He stated that he was disappointed with people condemning the President for calling MPs useless, saying the President’s words were simply a reminder for Members of Parliament to wake up and perform their responsibility.
The minister reiterated that any MP who does not want to work is useless, and Zambians should be grateful that the President wanted MPs to perform the duties they were elected into office for.
Mr Kambwili urged pupils to stay away from premarital sex but instead work hard and take advantage of government’s commitment to constructing more universities countrywide by ensuring that they pass and get admission into university.
