Patriotic Front (PF) Mandevu Member of Parliament Jean Kapata has cautioned United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema against insulting president Michael Sata.
Ms Kapata said that PF members and Zambians in general demand that Mr. Hichilema respect the Republican President as he is an elected official.
She said it’s unacceptable and highly provocative for Mr. Hichilema to label the president as having no brains.
ZANIS reports that the PF MP for Mandevu Constituency said this in an interview in Mpongwe yesterday.
She added that insulting the head of state was actually insulting the people of Zambia who voted Mr. Sata into office.
She said Mr. Hichilema who heads a small party must learn to respect the president and accept that he is in state house.
She said the way president Sata was working it will take a long time for the UPND or any other parties to form government.
According to Local media reports, the Opposition UPND leader is reported to have insulted the Republican President.
Mr. Hichilema is reported to have said this before being picked up in connection with the shooting of a PF cadre, Harrison Chanda.
