Former PF General Secretary Wynter Kabimba says people should not rewrite history by trying to include Mulenga Sata on the list of PF founder members because he is not.
Speaking when he featured on the Platform radio program on Joy FM Mr Kabimba who is now Rainbow Party Secretary General said being late President Michael Sata’s son does not mean that Mulenga was one of the founders of the Party.
He said he is aware that Mulenga Sata was not even in the country when the party was formed.
“… Why Mulenga Sata in particular? Is there something special you would like me to learn about? Mulenga Sata was not one of the founders of the PF so please let’s not rewrite history. The argument that a King’s dog is the king of all dogs is not true, the fact that Micheal Sata was the founder of the PF does not make Mulenga a founder of the party. He was not even in the country when PF was formed that I know,” he said.
And Mr Kabimba says he does not subscribe to the idea of the opposition ganging up with agenda of kicking Edgar Lungu and the PF because his agenda is to better the lives of Zambians.
“We have defined what people call fundamental agenda, the agenda according to them is let’s come together so that we can kick out Edgar Lungu and the PF. I have listened to all the defections at the now famous Chainama hotel and all of them when you listen to them, their agenda is we must come together and kick out Edgar Lungu and PF,” he said.
He said such an agenda will only add to the misery the Zambian people are currently going through because it is not centred on national interest but rather that of individuals.
He said people of different calibre are now friends regardless of the names they called each other just a just a few months ago adding that such groupings have happened before and the end result has been the increased suffering by innocent citizens.
“I 1991 there was a hullabaloo to get rid of Kaunda again there was a cocktail of everybody that Kaunda had detained for Mandrax dealings, for corruption, fired from government and everything, everybody was nursing some wound is some kind of another and they converged around and said a bad person is Kaunda if can get rid of him will be better, we did that but the country has become worse than it was 25 years ago,” he said.
He further said people regrouping have nothing new to offer to the country saying throwing a cat in goats pan does not make it change to become a goat.
Meanwhile Mr Kabimba said the PF will be lucky to even go for a re-run.
Responding to a caller who said Mr Kabimba was wasting his time because the PF will win the elections the opposition leader said “PF is not winning and will be lucky to even go for a re-run. I have managed an election before and I have read the ground. It doesn’t matter what you think.”
