Chief Government Spokesperson Kennedy Sakeni is dismayed by the hypocrisy of former cabinet ministers who now are serving in the opposition.

Mr. Sakeni has regretted that some former cabinet ministers are deliberately misleading the nation on matters which they are familiar with.

Mr. Sakeni says former Works and Supply Minister in the MMD government and Peoples’ Party president, Mike Mulongoti is misleading the public on the constitution especially on holding of a by-election in the country.

He said this in a press statement released to ZANIS in Lusaka today.

Mr. Sakeni, who is also Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services said by-elections are a constitutional expenditure and un-avoided.

“Government is dismayed at the hypocrisy displayed by the likes of Mr. Mulongoti who at one time served as a parliamentarian and cabinet minister who deliberately opts to mislead the nation on straight-forward issues which he is familiar with. By elections are a constitutional expenditure which are un-foreseen and un-avoidable. Why was it legal then and illegal now?” Mr. Sakeni asked.

He stressed that the current constitution provides that a by election is held within a period of 90 days when a vacancy occurs for an elected Member of Parliament (MP) adding that people have the right to be represented at all times as per law established.

Mr Sakeni said by-elections have been part of the Zambian political culture for many years now and therefore the question of illegal funding does not arise.

He reminded Mr. Mulongoti that funding for constitutional activities has been legal and rubbished insinuations by the former minister.

The Minister said the Patriotic Front Government reiterates its total commitment to good governance, the rule of law and prudent management of public resources for the betterment of the Zambians.

  1. It is like that with politicians.Lies and pretense are their best friends.Probably explains why one day you see a politician condemning the government and the moment you see him being given a government position he suddenly changes to instead support the government.I will never trust a politician.

  2. Yeah well…. Sakeni is always upset about something.

    How nice if he spent more time being proud of GRZ achievements.

  3. WHERE WAS SAKENI SPEAKING FROM???? I THOUGHT KALI BED RIDDEN KALWELE KA SAKENI.

    EVEN ON A DRIP AND UNCONSCIOUS HE IS TALKING NONSENSE?????? MAYBE INTOXICATED BY THE ARV MEDICATION.

    FOSEKI KA FOSSIL SAKENI

  4. Definitely Sakeni must have been talking under the influence of a very strong drug or could have possibly been in coma when this issue was discussed thoroughly well. Just in case, a very good analogy made was that of a person who spends most of his money on alcohol when his children are starving at home just because drinking alcohol is legal for over 18 year olds.
