LUSAKA, APRIL 04, 2015 — It is laughable that Mr. Charles Milupi is hallucinating about impeaching President Edgar Lungu when he has zero numbers in Parliament. Not even the Opposition in Parliament can marshal sufficient numbers to secure an impeachment vote against President Lungu. It should also be placed on record that Mr. Milupi must realize that nothing has happened that would even warrant an impeachment motion in Parliament. Zambians can be assured that President Lungu is very much within the boundaries of the law and acting in the best interest of Zambia and the mining investors.
Sadly, Mr. Milupi has joined the bandwagon of alarmists whose objective is to instil a sense of fear in the masses of our people. It is evident that Mr. Milupi has subjected himself as an appendage of the United Party for National Development (UPND) understandably so because his own political party only exists on paper. Even in his hallucination about the impeachment, he is banking on UPND MPs in Parliament. It is therefore sad that a man of Mr. Milupi’s educational background can stoop to such levels of making ridiculous statements when he can do better. In case Milupi has forgotten, President Lungu is a seasoned lawyer and does not need to be reminded by screaming headlines. Milupi must worry for himself and his one-man party which has been auctioned to the highest bidder.
All this is happening because the Opposition in Zambia has gone to bed with the infamous Cartel. This is the same cartel that has lost control of the Presidency and is in a hurry to crown a puppet President they can control. From the rehearsed statements and same logic emanating from the Opposition, one does not need to be a rocket scientist to know that it is in fact the Cartel that is now controlling the Opposition and putting words in their mouths. As a matter of fact, some Opposition leaders and their party officials are parroting the Cartel at a fee paid to them immediately after the exercise. These therefore risk being exposed.
