ROAN Patriotic Front (PF) Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili has described Rainbow Party general secretary Wynter Kabimba as a political nonentity who does not deserve to be responded to.
Mr Kambwili said in an interview yesterday that he could not respond or give a view on Mr Kabimba’s opinion about him because the Rainbow Party leader was not worth it politically.
The former minister of Information and Broadcasting was responding to a comment by Mr Kabimba on Thursday saying that firing Mr Kambwili from cabinet was the best thing that President Lungu had done since taking up office.
Mr Kabimba said that Mr Kambwili should not condemn President Edgar Lungu and the PF for the choices they were making with regards to choosing a candidate for the 2021 elections and other matters because he had no moral right to do so.
He said Mr Kambwili supported the party choices when it suited him previously and should not therefore complain over similar decisions now.
The Rainbow Party leader was responding to a question on the ‘Burning Issue’ 5FM Radio programme on what he thought about the in-house differences in the PF involving Mr Kambwili.
Mr Kabimba said Mr Kambwili should not complain over the decisions of the party because not so longer ago, he supported the same decisions.
He said Mr Kambwili was complaining because he had been fired as Information minister by President Lungu.
But Mr Kambwili said yesterday that he would not respond to Mr Kabimba.
“Go tell Wynter that he is a political nonentity on whom I can’t waste time responding to,” he said.
Mr Kambwili said people would not notice the difference between him and Mr Kabimba if he responded to the allegations.
The Roan MP has clashed with the PF leadership on many occasions after he was fired in 2016 and has issued various statements condemning PF and Government.
