Chief Government Spokesman Chishimba Kambwili has charged that UPND presidential running mate Geoffrey Mwamba is a violent man who does not care about the peace of the nation.
Mr Kambwili alleged that Mr Mwamba does not care what happens to Zambia because he apparently has a second home in South Africa where his Grand Mother lives.
He said GBM’s South African heritage makes him promote violence in Zambian politics because he has somewhere else to run to.
Mr Kambwili was speaking Monday morning when he featured on a special radio programme on Kasama’s Radio Mano.
He said Mr Mwamba’s family hails from Kwazulu Natal and that his daughter Sibongile is named after Mr Mwamba’s grandmother.
Mr Kambwili who is also recontesting the Roan parliamentary seat on the PF ticket accused the UPND of being a tribal and violent party.
He has since urged Northern Province to appreciate the development initiatives that government has embarked on.
Mr Kambwili said Government has supported farmers by bringing inputs early and paying farmers upon delivery of maize.
He has cited the construction of roads as a way to open up the country and improve market opportunities for farmers.
Mr Kambwili cited Kasama-Mbala- Mpulungu, Kasama- Mbesuma, Kasama- Luwingu- Mansa, Kasama-Mporokoso.
He also stated that government has awarded contracts to build Mbesuma-Isoka, Mporokoso-Nsama- Kaputa and Luwingu- Chaba- Chilubi.
And Mr Kambwili who is also Information and Broadcasting Minister said alarmed by the partisan nature of some community radio stations accusing them of conducting themselves in a partisan manner.
He has warned community radio not to abuse their elevated positions to spread political propaganda but that they should stick to broadcasting ethics.
