Kalomo Central Member of Parliament Harry Kamboni has said the Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini is a wrong person to ask the suspended 48 UPND MPs to resign on moral grounds for not recognizing Edgar Lungu as he failed to do so when he breached constitutional requirement during the Presidential petition.
Kamboni said Matibini failed to resign on moral grounds when he cowardly failed to protect the constitution and take up the instruments of power during the Presidential petition.
Commenting on their suspension from the national assembly by speaker Patrick Matibini, Kalomo lawmaker said it was unfortunately that glorifying injustice has become fashionable in Zambia and vowed to never recognize Edgar Lungu as Republican President because that is the position of the UPND and its millions of supporters across the country.
Zambians are tired of the current trends in Zambia
He added that only after the Presidential petition is conclusively heard, that is when he will and other lawmakers recognize Edgar Lungu as the duly elected head of state and Kamboni stated that he has a duty and allegiance to the people of kalomo that elected him, adding that he is not nominated Member of Parliament.
And the UPND lawmaker has since warned home affairs minister Stephen Kampyongo against getting greedy with power, affirming that during the 30 days suspension he will spend time explaining to his electorates the dehumanizing conditions under which President HAKAINDE HICHILEMA is being kept under at Mukobeko as well as the tribulations of the ruling patriotic Front (PF).
The Kalomo Central legislator was however quick to state that Zambians are tired of the current trends in Zambia, a country deemed as a democratic country.
