Kabushi Member of Parliament Bowman Lusambo has denied slapping his Roan counterpart Chishimba Kambwili outside Parliament.
Responding via a telephone interview on the Hot Breakfast Show on Hot FM yesterday morning to Dr. Kambwili’s claims, Mr. Lusambo who is also Copperbelt Province Minister said he regretted the incidence at Parliament and said that it was Dr. Kambwili who used uncouth language on him in public.
Mr. Lusambo further said that Dr. Kambwili has a record of openly insulting his perceived enemies including President Edgar Lungu adding that the latter’s conduct was so offensive because he has not insulted him before.
“I did not beat him” Lusambo said
But according to Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili, Mr. Lusambo provoked the crisis when he confronted him publicly over allegations of corruption he has, in recent times, leveled on the Patriotic Front (PF) led government.
Dramatically narrating his ordeal, Dr. Kambwili says Mr. Lusambo first insulted and cautioned him for accusing Government of being corrupt before he slapped him twice as water was simultaneously poured on him by Mandavu Member of Parliament and Minister of Lands Jean Kapata.
