Opposition parties are liars, we have not legalised homosexuality they alleged we would once in power
VICE President Guy Scott said that opposition parties had been proved to be liars because most of what they used to allege against PF prior to September 2011 such as legalising homosexuality had come out to be untrue.
speaking at Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula International Airport and at a public rally in Kasiya Ward in Livingstone yesterday, Dr Scott said that opposition parties had been proved to be liars because most of what they used to allege against PF prior to September 2011 has come out to be untrue.
“When PF was in the opposition, MMD and UPND used to say that PF will force men to marry men when they come to power.
Since PF won the elections 16 months ago, I haven’t heard men marrying men. They were even saying that PF will take the old people and throw them into Zambezi River while others were saying that President Michael Sata was dying but all these have come out to be lies,” he said.
Dr Scott said some opposition parties were currently alleging that PF was practicing Satanism which was incorrect.
“The opposition never gets tired and it is now their time to go. They get desperate and they will say anything to frighten you, “he said
Dr Scott urged PF members to keep a clean campaign and ensure that the Livingstone parliamentary seat was delivered to the ruling party.
“Don’t get frustrated before the Election Day on February 28 and start saying that you have already won the elections.
You don’t win elections just because you are Government and hence you will need to work,” he said.
Information and Broadcasting Minister Kennedy Sakeni urged the people of Livingstone to turn out in large numbers and vote for Mr Evans.
Mr Sakeni said that PF Government was doing a lot in terms of rolling out economic development programmes in Livingstone and Zambia in general.
Agriculture and Livestock Minister Bob Sichinga said the Government was committed to addressing various challenges affecting the local people.
Mr Chenda wondered how a UPND candidate would develop Livingstone when MPs from the opposition party were not allowed to work with Government.
Gender Minister Inonge Wina said the Government had found market for the stone crushers in the city.
Ms Wina said the Government wanted to ensure that women clubs were resuscitated which an opposition party could not manage to do.
Tourism and Arts Minister Sylvia Masebo, Deputy Minister for Home Affairs Nickson Chilangwa, Agriculture and Livingstone Deputy Minister Lackson Kazabu and Southern Province Minister Josephine Limata were among other notable personalities in Dr Scott’s entourage.
Meanwhile, Veteran politician Daniel Munkombwe has said the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) was the only credible party that can develop Zambia.
Mr. Munkombwe said opposition political parties were not capable of developing the country and were just bent of blaming the government of the day.
He said this is the reason he decided to help the PF in fostering development in the country.
Mr. Munkombwe said he, just like any other person, was free to support any party of his choice adding that he was exercising his democratic right to align himself with the PF.
He added that the MMD has become a stagnant political party while the PF was a progressive party.
Mr. Munkombwe said President Michael Sata and the PF mean well for Zambia.
