Kapiri PF condemn opposition request
Kapiri Mposhi, 28 July , 2014, ZANIS – The ruling Patriotic Front-PF in Kapiri Mposhi district has condemned the request by opposition political parties and civil society organizations to meet President Michael Sata at State House.
Kapiri Mposhi District PF Chairman Smart Mwila said the request was in bad faith and offensive to the dignity of the office of the President and the ruling party and should therefore not be entertained.
Mr. Mwila accused opposition political parties of wishing the President bad luck and wanting to gain political mileage from the matter.
“They are preaching bad omen against the President but at the same time they want to see him … we want to ask through our party leadership at National level not to allow this to happen because their thinking is negative”, Mr. Mwila said.
Mr. Mwila said this on Saturday during the district fundraising dinner for Kapiri Mposhi District PF Executive Committee which was officiated by PF Deputy Secretary General Bridget Atanga.
There have been calls from the opposition political parties and some civil society organizations for government to allow them meet the head of state at State House to ascertain his health.
But Mr. Mwila said the demands were ill-timed and maintained that President Sata was well and working as he should.
“The calls for the opposition to meet the President are in bad faith and should not be condoned because the President is working as he should in line with the mandate that the Zambian people gave to him and the PF”, Mr. Mwila said.
Mr. Mwila asked God to bless President Sata more and allow him to complete his development agenda mandated to him by the people of Zambia.
