Get Involved Zambia (GIZ) says demands by Patriotic Front leader Michael Sata for an apology from UPND’s National Youth Chairman Joe Kalusa over his continued attacks on him are justifiable.
GIZ leader Father Frank Bwalya says Mr. Sata has every right to demand for an apology if he has been offended because just like any other person the PF leader cannot work with people who have no respect for him.
Fr. Bwalya has since advised both members of the PF and UPND to desist from issuing demeaning statements towards each other.
He was commenting on the letter written to the UPND by the PF leader demanding for an apology from the UPND youth leader for his demeaning remarks directed at Mr. Sata.
And Fr. Bwalya has condemned President Rupiah Banda’s statement that the increase in fuel pump prices is not much and that the people trying to raise dust on the issue should not cause unnecessary worry to the public.
Fr. Bwalya says it is irresponsible for the president to issue such a statement because any increase in fuel prices transfers the cost to the people of Zambia who are already facing challenges of the high cost of living.
He says unlike the President who has been using tax payer’s money for his travels and has not in any way felt the impact of the high cost of living, the people of Zambia have been affected by the increase in fuel prices.
And Fr. Bwalya has confirmed his pullout from Change Life Zambia and has since registered a new organization called Get Involved Zambia.
