UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has charged that Acting Republican President Wynter Kabimba will never be President of Zambia because he has no ability to mobilize voters.
Mr. Kabimba who is also Justice Minister last week labeled the UPND as a party that is in fantasy island and that Mr Hichilema is a resident in fools paradise.
Mr. Hichilema has charged that Mr. Kabimba is championing hate speech in the country.
“Kabimba is aware of his inadequacies, he is aware of his inability to command popular support on the ground. He is completely mesmerized with the position of Acting President he has been given and he wants to flex his small muscles, he thinks he has large muscles but I want to remind that he has such a small set of muscles politically,” Mr Kabimba said.
People know that he is a destructive diminutive little fellow with such a weird mind
He added, “Kabimba politically is absolutely nothing and he knows that. If there was a by election in his village and he picks an electoral college of 20 people and there was a contest between the UPND and Kabimba, he would lose and he knows that.”
Mr Hichilema has accused Mr Kabimba of thinking that being conferred with the Acting President position gives him grassroot support.
“Kabimba has no constituency, he has no political constituency, he really must be ashamed of talking the way he talks and he likes pushing hate language together with his cartel which the Zambians know that is destroying Zambia.
Mr Hichilema said, “Even within the PF rank, Kabimba will not be allowed to ascend to the presidential candidature, he knows that. People know that he is a destructive diminutive little fellow with such a weird mind and he thinks he can take out his anger on Hakainde, everybody knows that.”
The UPND leader said Mr Kabimba and the PF cannot break him saying his party has become the party of choice for Zambia.
“Kabimba must not weep for me, he must weep for himself. Hakainde and the UPND are just fine, we know what we are doing. UPND is a party of choice today and he is now confused in that acting position. He has too much pressure from people that dislike him, the church, the civil society and within the PF. Hakainde has stamina, he wanted to lock me up in the police cells with his boss but they have failed.”
