WE are not ready to lose elections because of Kaizar Zulu, says former Mufumbwe PF member of parliament Steven Masumba.
Masumba says if President Edgar Lungu is being lenient and does not fire Zulu, “we will remove him ourselves”.
Speaking to journalists on Friday, Masumba said Zulu’s behaviour was disgusting and does not befit a presidential adviser.
He said Zulu must be taken to Mukanda (male initiation) for traditional teaching.
“I want to warn this Kaizar Zulu. If they are scared of him… if Kaizar Zulu continues behaving like this, we shall force him out of State House ourselves. We will remove him from State House. If the President is having mercy on him, we will remove him because we are not ready to lose elections because of Kaizar. Why is Kaizar Zulu behaving like this? Is he the only one?” Masumba asked.
“Kaizar Zulu’s behaviour is very disgusting. Not only disgusting, but it’s quite embarrassing and very barbaric, not befitting a person who’s got a very serious appointment, that of advisor to the President. I have always been asking myself ukweba ati kanshi uyu Kaizar Zulu mwelesa, mwamufumya kwisa? (My God, where did this Kaizar Zulu come from?) What kind of a human being is this, who today, Kaizar Zulu naocha ifintu (he has burnt properties), who today, Kaizar Zulu nauma abantu (has beaten people), Kaizar Zulu nalasa abantu amafuti (has shot at people). Bushe Kaizar Zulu takakule? (Won’t Kaizar Zulu ever grow up?).”
He said President Lungu was a humble leader whose name was being dented by his political advisor’s bad behaviour.
Masumba said Zulu was exhibiting childish behaviour not suitable for his age.
“To me when you look at his age, Kaizar Zulu is somebody that is almost going toward his 50s. At least, we would have been wondering if he is a young boy in his early 30s. We would have been wondering that maybe he was still growing. Now Kaizar is old, but you will find that the behaviour that Kaizar Zulu is exhibiting now, even that of a baby is far much better than his,” he said.
“Where I come from there is what we call Mukanda where we take those people that are notorious. We lock them into Mukanda so that we can teach them manners. I think that is what Kaizar Zulu needs to be given because there is no way that he can continue bringing embarrassment throughout and bring the Office of the President into disrepute.”
Masumba said Zulu was just masquerading when he appeared on Diamond TV that he delivers presidents when it was the people of Zambia who voted for President Lungu.
“Are you the only one that has been delivering presidents? Are you the only one that has been putting in efforts to allow the President win the elections? The President has been winning elections because of the people of Zambia and not Kaizar Zulu himself,” said Masumba.
“If we go and remove those comrades in Muchinga Province, is the chap going to deliver presidents? The boy is so pompous, he is too much of himself. Kaizar Zulu must behave and I hope you are listening. Behave yourself, if you don’t, we shall force you to behave.”
