Wynter Kabimba is ignorant of the law-Kunda
VICE-PRESIDENT George Kunda has said Patriotic Front (PF) secretary general Wynter Kabimba is ignorant of the law and that is why he took frivolous cases against him and President Rupiah Banda to court.
And Mr Kunda has said calls for change of Government by the opposition are unfounded as the MMD Government has remained steadfast in fostering national development.
Addressing a rally at Kapeshi Basic School grounds in Serenje yesterday, Mr Kunda said it was illogical for Mr Kabimba and his cronies to challenge the parentage of President Banda now when he is Head of State and has been a minister before.
He said the opposition PF had failed to garner support from the Zambian people ahead of the September 20 elections that is why it has desperately resorted to going to court over cases it knows it could never win.
“They have gone to court to try and stop President Banda as a candidate allegedly on a basis that his parents are not Zambian when he is already our president.
“He has been minister before, he was elected president in 2008 and surely today they say he does not qualify to stand? Does it make any sense? No, but they are just confused,” Mr Kunda said.
He said the action by the PF and Mr Kabimba to take President Banda to court was malicious and that it was not surprising that it was thrown out.
“I am a State counsel myself and I knew that there was no way he could win such a case, which was malicious. Kabimba is mischievous. He misled everybody over the case and now it has been thrown out,” Mr Kunda said.
He said Zambia needed President Banda because he was hard-working and was governing the country well.
Mr Kunda said after Mr Kabimba and his sympathisers lost the parentage case against President Banda, he decided to take him to court on grounds that he should cease to be vice-president.
“The court action was malicious and vindictive that was why it was summarily dismissed. It was an ignorant action by Kabimba.
“These people are really scared of me and President Banda that is why they are acting desperately,” he said.
He said the people of Zambia had seen that the MMD Government was working well in developing Zambia and they would re-elect President Banda and his team.
Mr Kunda said there was no need to remove the MMD from power because the ruling party was ably delivering on its promises.
“The opposition has nothing to offer other than empty promises. What change are they talking about when we are already delivering on development as MMD?” he said.
