COMMITTEE of Citizens executive director Gregory Chifire has accused the Patriotic Front of using Patrick Mwanawasa to attack Government.
Mr Chifire said it is clear that Patrick’s disparaging remarks against President Banda’s Government originate from the PF.
Patrick, former President Levy Mwanawasa’s son, was quoted in one of the tabloids propagating PF’s ideals as saying Government is brainwashing Zambians into believing that it is bringing development in the country.
Mr Chifire said there is a lot of development taking place in all parts of the country, contrary to Patrick’s remarks.
He also accused The Post of working in collaboration with PF president Michael Sata to discredit Government.
He alleged that Patrick intends to stand in Kafulafuta Constituency under the PF.
Mr Chifire said Patrick is still young and should not allow himself to be used by politicians.
He said the PF is destroying the young man’s future by using him in politics of insults.
And Leadership in Development executive director Moses Kalonde condemned Patrick’s remarks and advised him to stay away from cheap politics that will never build the nation.
Mr Kalonde said Patrick should open his eyes before the PF leads him astray.
