Former State House Press Aide George Chellah has taken to social media to respond to PF Media and Communications Director Brian Hapunda’s insinuations that he was part of the group that was behind Hapunda’s legal troubles.
Shortly after he was acquitted of criminal charges by the Livingstone Magistrate Court on Tuesday, Hapunda posted on his Facebook page that he has forgiven Chellah, Wynter Kabimba, Chanda Mfula and Obbie Mweemba but he will never forget their names.
‘Vengeance is for God. If I met them today, I will hug them for they made me a very strong person and a popular figure,’ Hapunda wrote.But the statement infuriated Chellah who responded by revealing details of how he personally helped Hapunda when he was facing legal challenges.
Below is Chellah’s full posting
My response to Mr. Brian Hapunda.
Brian, in your typical style you’ ve decided to publicly malign and defame me with outrageous claims that, I was behind your alleged troubles with the law.
Brian, are you sure l deserve what you ‘ve just posted on your wall? I know we we may have our own differences but surely you can’t sink so low in your effort to attract sympathy on yourself. Be a man and grow out of such silly complexies. You accuse me of being behind your issues, really?
Let’s go to the genesis of your being where you re today. Hope you remember who recruited you into PF and how your dad, whom I have a lot of respect for came carrying you to my office with a plea of me looking after you whilst he was away in Russia as Ambassador.
Remember your constant knocks on my door at State House asking for monies to help you sustain yourself and family? Indeed, you have a strange way of expressing gratitude to people who do good to you. You’re such a strange fella…and your levels of ingratitude are sickening to say the least. I didn’t want to be the one to remind you of all this but your ingratitude and treachery has compelled me to do.
I implore you to manage your excitement and devise better ways seeking public sympathy. Be grateful to people who help you and stop mentioning my name in petty and immature stories.
Let me stress, your misery and impoverishment at that time compelled me to vouch for you to President Sata even when in my heart of hearts I knew that you were a total stranger to me. We were not friends but I was willing to risk it all and share your burden. At the time when nobody could accept you in PF and they all described you as treacherous and unreliable I stuck my neck out and convinced the President to accept your defection from UPND to PF in case you ve forgotten.
It just didn’t end their I lobbied him to make you provincial political secretary then this???? Are you for real? Anyway, I forgive your treachery and ingratitude. No wonder you’re fighting for acceptance and recognition everywhere because your treacherous CV is an albatross around your neck.
Grow up and move on. You don’t need to mention and curse George Chellah to improve your job hunt ratings. Just be patient and your efforts will be recognised in due course. Don’t let your desperation drive you to disgraceful levels. Inchito yena balekupela boyi just take heart.
I politely request you to amend your post and hope you can prove that I had a stake in your issues. Gratitude ebutu muntu wandi! Watch and learn. GC – 11/03/2015
