Chief Government spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili says Rainbow general secretary Wynter Kabimba must stop issuing unsubstantiated statements insinuating that there is corruption in Government.
Mr Kambwili said this in an interview in reaction to a story published in yesterday’s Post newspaper headlined `Corruption is theft, murder’.
“I totally agree with Mr Kabimba that corruption is theft and murder, but he must be the last person to talk about corruption because he has [allegedly] amassed so much wealth in an unexplained manner. He is also running an ostrich farm,” he said.
Mr Kambwili, who is Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services, said it is true that those engaged in corrupt activities will have a bad ending, and that they will not survive in politics.
However, Mr Kambwili said Mr Kabimba is an elitist person who has no connection with the grassroots and cannot therefore talk about issues of corruption.
“Mr Kabimba must not talk about corruption. He is not a grassroots person and has no relationship with poor people. How did he manage to fund the Rainbow congress, buying materials for everyone?” he wondered.
He said only recently Mr Kabimba was the most powerful person in the PF, who could organise anything within minutes, and cannot therefore turn around and accuse the PF of being corrupt.
