Stephen Kampyongo cannot talk about political violence.
Kampyongo says “Zambia’s political arena has been infiltrated by intolerant political activists and politicians who have no regard for a multiparty system, respect for and observance of fundamental individual rights, freedoms and human dignity”.
Who has more disregard for multiparty politics in this country than Kampyongo?
Who has more disregard for the fundamental human rights, freedoms and the dignity of others in this country than Kampyongo?
What type of political hypocrisy is this?
This can pass as the most awesomely hypocritical statement on political violence we have ever heard from a Zambian politician.
Kampyongo’s politics are anchored on brutality, intolerance, cruelty and violence. Wherever Kampyongo is there’s political intolerance and violence. Look at the intolerance and violence that today characterise the politics of Shiwang’andu where Kampyongo is the member of parliament!
Kampyongo’s political language is full of threats, warnings and intimidation.
Without shame Kampyongo goes on to say, “Accordingly, they wish to reverse our democratic dispensation anchored on respect for human rights and dignity, including the right to a political party of one’s choice. The intolerance prevailing in our political arena is therefore uncalled-for, and has no place in any democratic dispensation.”
Does Kampyongo know what human rights and freedoms are?
Does Kampyongo understand what constitutes human dignity?
Does Kampyongo really understand what living in a multiparty political dispensation entails?
Is this really from Kampyongo’s mouth? Yes it is. Hypocrites have no shame.
If Satan ever laughs, it must be at hypocrites like Kampyongo; they are the greatest dupes he has; they serve him better than any others, and receive no wages.
Better to be known as a sinner than a hypocrite.
The only vice which cannot be forgiven is hypocrisy. The repentance of a hypocrite is itself hypocrisy.
A politician is a hypocrite only when he affects to take a delight in what he does not feel, not because he takes a perverse delight in opposite things.
Raheel Farooq said, “Politics is the only art whose artists regularly disown their masterpieces.”
And Noam Chomsky once said, “One commonly hears that carping critics complain about what is wrong, but do not present solutions. There is an accurate translation for that charge: ‘They present solutions, but I don’t like them.'”
Remember we are told in Matthew 7:21, “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of My Father in heaven will enter.”
