UNITED Party for National Development (UPND) Mazabuka member of parliament Garry Nkombo has unreservedly apologised for his obscene remarks he made in Parliament last year.
Mr Nkombo told parliament that his behavior was embarrassing and unparliamentary and that as a chief whip for the UPND his behaviour was not good and befitting his status.
“I wish to apologise to you Mr Speaker, this August house and the nation at large for the words I uttered last year,” he said.
This morning Speaker of the National Assembly Dr Patrick Matibini castigated Mazabuka central member of parliament Garry Nkombo for using obscene language against Mpulungu member of parliament Freedom Sikazwe.
Dr Matibini said the word used by Nkombo against his counterpart was unparliamentary and that the parliament radio broadcasts to many people across the country as such no derogatory language will be entertained.
The Mazabuka lawmaker is believed to have used unparliamentary language when debating on the flour of the house during the last session of parliament.
He called Mpulungu member of parliament Freedom Sikazwe ‘chikala’ an obscene word which when translated in English refers to the male genitalia.
