THIS is the last time Chishimba Kambwili will insult President Edgar Lungu and not bear the consequences, Patriotic Front media director Sunday Chanda has warned.
Chanda stated that Kambwili’s verbal grime would soon be taken to the cleaners.
He stated that when two egomaniacs that have nothing in common except their greed for power and a mutual disdain of each other conjugate in political unholy matrimony, the consummation of their morbid marriage of inconvenience begets nothing but brute perversion.
“The deliberate ignoring of truth and twisting of facts by National Democratic Congress ‘Insultant’ Chishimba Kambwili and his newly found infatuation with the imprudent itches of UPND life president Hakainde Hichilema make a rather peculiar specimen of the delusional tendencies of self-seeking purveyors of sensationalism. Their raw psychotic presentation is a bizarre novelty – a collector’s item,” he stated.
Chanda stated that Kambwili attempts to mask his lack of comprehension with a false bravado.
“This regularly manifests through his tendency to speak before he listens and it is a telling symptom of an acute deficiency of cognitive abilities exacerbated by a remarkable surplus of gauche. It explains why he holds the dishonourable record as the only minister in Zambia’s history to have been moved between a number of ministries within a ridiculously short time,” he stated. “His weakness of speaking ahead of his thinking renders him a solo misfit who finds the concept of team work alien; and in his delusion – he thinks it’s a macho thing! There is sadly very little between those ears-no gumption! We find it of great concern that our wayward brother and his UPND partner in slime cannot understand a plain memo that is in the public domain written with so much clarity and a Parliamentary standing Order he accepted (which was written and debated in plain language).”
Chanda explained that the government had withdrawn the motor vehicle replacement allowance for Cabinet ministers effective January 1, 2019 in adherence to the austerity measures government has put in place.
“Government has made the decision because it is fiscally untenable to continue providing the allowance at the fixed monthly rate of K32,715.20 for each Cabinet and Provincial Minister which was being effected through the payroll,” he explained.
“These measures are meant to save funds and they point to the goodwill and integrity of the government. However, the increments Kambwili is bellyaching about were effected in January 2018 across the board via an adjustment to the Parliamentary Standing Order for the remuneration of all MPs, Ministers and all constitutional office holders including the Speaker of the National assembly, Cabinet Ministers, Judges, Director of Public Prosecutions et cetera. Kambwili knows fully well about this particular standing order and the increment thereof which he did not challenge but gladly accepted in January 2018.”
Chanda wondered whether Kambwili had posted about the increments to members of parliament’s salaries.
“Can Kambwili tell Zambians that he has not been receiving the increased salary over the past 11 months? Mr Kambwili cannot talk about integrity. Isn’t this the same Kambwili who not so long ago said he had ‘worked for the money’ and consequently refused to pay back the disputed ministers salaries? Why the convenient sudden U-turn if not for political expedience?” he asked.
“What integrity can Kambwili talk about? How moral is it for him to continue holding on to being an MP just so that he can continue drawing a National Assembly salary and other emoluments? If the PF are corrupt as he alleges, why is he fraudulently holding on to PF membership and receiving a salary on a PF seat in Parliament?”
Chanda stated that Kambwili’s hatred for the Chinese was confirmation of PF belief that one thing he shared with his UPND counterpart was their “bile and constipation with xenophobia”.
“One wonders how Hichilema could allow himself to be misled by a dunce like Kambwili,” wondered Chanda.
“It cannot be overemphasised that ALL Members of Parliament including Kambwili and those from UPND were aware of this standing order and the related increment, which they too did not challenge but gleefully accepted in January 2018.”
