Patriotic Front -PF Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri has castigated opposition FDD leader Edith Nawakwi for questioning First Lady Esther Lungu’s charity programmes.

Mrs Phiri says the First Lady has every right to interact with citizens in any part of the country contrary to Ms Nawakwi’s suggestions as quoted in today’s edition of the Post Newspaper.

The PF Deputy Secretary General wondered whether Ms Nawakwi wants Mrs Lungu to be restricted to the confines of State House when past First Ladies conducted similar outreach programs.

Speaking to ZNBC in Lusaka on Monday, Mrs Phiri said it is wrong for Ms Nawakwi to focus her energies on personalised attacks against the First family at the expense offering credible checks and balances.

Ms Nawakwi is quoted in today’s Post Newspaper as calling on the First Lady not to venture into the political arena.

  1. Mumbi Phiri must not exhibit her fooli.shness by reacting to issues that are beyond her. President Nawakwi is not against what Chagwa’s wife is doing but is questioning where the money is coming from all of a sudden. If Mumbi Phiri recalls, it was Chagwa’s wife who said “ndemipela utunono pantu nshilaikata amalaini”. Now it looks like “amalaini nayekatika”. Who is funding her projects? She is transported using tax payers money and we have every right to question what she is doing. Mumbi Phiri must just shut her beak. This is a woman who answers to almost anything, even to issues she has very little knowledge about. She barks like a rabied dog. She can’t fool people anymore and she’s now finding it hard to convince anyone. So Mumbi Phir, don’t display your stupidi.ty. Just shut up.

  2. From basic reasoning over the vicious circle behind the argument of the 3 women, its outright that women are their own enemies and can hardly win the presidency if given a chance. Hatred is what drives them.

  3. I need help here for clarification on what Ms Nawakwi is questioning. Is it Mrs Lungu’s charity programs or the source of funding for Mrs Lungu’s charity programs? Typical of politicians wanting to divert attention from the core issue raised by Ms Nawakwi. Anyway coming from one Mumbi Phiri it does not surprise me.

  4. According to Mumbi Phiri, if former First Ladies were making mistakes there’s nothing wrong for Madam Esther to make similar mistakes. This is progressive indeed!!!!!

  5. If you read the daily papers you will have seen First Lady Esther at state house receiving dignitaries, mostly businessmen who want to donate money for onward payout to the vulnerable in society. But then you do not read do you? The poor reading culture also includes Nawakwi.
    Nawakwi cannot carry out research and come up with an informed opinion. Instead she reads from a script prepared by Mmembe and the Past news. What lessons do we learn from this? That if you vote Nawakwi into state house your effective president will be Mmembe, same if you vote Kabimba. Not yet sure about HH.
