Mazabuka Member of Parliament Garry Nkombo has distanced himself from a Facebook page which he said is circulating false information about him complaining about people who have continued to join the party.
In a statement to the media the Mazabuka law maker accused the ruling PF of having created the fake page in his name and of using it to circulate false information.
Mr Nkombo said it was unfortunate that the PF can sink to such low and disgusting levels.
“It has come to my attention that some crooks from the other team – PF, have created a fake Facebook page in my name about 3 hours ago and are since posting items seemingly being spoken by myself.
“The circulating post is trying to show me as complaining about Ambassadors of Change joining our ever growing party. I want to take this opportunity to distance myself from that fake PF propaganda Facebook Page. I have been offline for some time and extremely busy welcoming the Big Fish to our very strong party – UPND.
“It is extremely unfortunate that the PF have degraded to such low and disgusting levels as impersonation all in a futile bid to divide the UPND. After such a big day as we had today, it is expected that the PF where going to embark on some form of cushion so it is not at all surprising that they have done this evil,” he said.
He added “I am a man of Integrity and very loyal to UPND, I can NEVER reduce myself to such levels as to post such rubbish. May it also be known that I am in the UPND entirely on Principle and not for positions, so PF better try another place.”
Meanwhile Dauglas Syakalima had this to say on the alleged Facebook page.
Am sure you all know that I don’t really participate on many of these fora but am an ardent reader of such.
What makes me write is because of what has been said of Hon Gary Nkombo over the Ambassadors of change.
May I state that Gary has been heavily involved in the negotiations of many of these, sometimes breaking nights. So to launder cheap propaganda to make him look like a villi among our in suspecting members is immoral but very irresponsible.
Gary has been hard working in many spheres of our party too numerous to mention. I therefore would like our members to treat such stupid propaganda with the contempt it deserves and throw it in the political dust bin because it does not fit in the civilization of the twenty first century.
The desperation of the PF is unimaginable. But we shall keep on pounding them until they hang their gloves on 11 August. In fact by the time we reach 11 August, the PF will be a shell of its past.
UPND be vigilant, courageous and never to yield to intimidation. And some of us lead by example on that score. God bless you all.
Senior Advisor to UPND President.
