Father Frank Bwalya has dropped his title of “Father” because some people in the political arena have a problem with his title of a Father in the catholic church, reports Pan African Radio Journalist Hermit Hachilonde.
Bwalya says he will not hesitate to drop his title because it can be easily done and he sees no problem to do so in respect with people who have a problem with his title.
He has however implored all local and international media organizations to with immediate effect to start quoting him as PF Deputy Spokesperson Frank Bwalya or PF Chairperson for Information Frank Bwalya.
He further emphasized on anyone mentioning his name in the media to respect his decision and say Frank Bwalya not father Frank Bwalya.
Below here is a full statement made available to the media by Father Bwalya.
I wish to inform you dear friends that for purposes of quoting me please do so as PF Deputy Spokesperson Frank Bwalya or PF Chairperson for Information Frank Bwalya.
And when you mention my name without the above portfolios please just use Frank Bwalya. What I am essentially saying is that you should drop my title of “Father” for purposes of quoting me in the media.
Some people have a problem and I see no problem to drop the title. However, kindly note that this is not by any means to suggest any development regarding my status. I would appreciate your consideration on this one.
