And Mr Kambwili has apologized to PF Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri over his comments that she was so poor that she could not even afford to buy toilet paper.
In a statement, Mr Kambwili said Mr Mwila’s behavior of encouraging violence in the party makes him the lowest IG Secretary General.
“I hereby present to you the lowest IQ Secretary General. Davies Mwila’s behaviour is totally unacceptable because there is no way a CEO of the party can encourage violence,” Mr Kambwili said.
He added, ” I now see why the people of Chipili rejected this backwards thinking man, first he encouraged cadres to grab land and share amongst themselves and now he is encouraging cadres to turn violent and beat those with divergent views as if this country belongs to him. I am not insulting the President. I am merely asking questions as to how he has acquired so much wealth in a year.”
” If this was in a country where the President is in total control and his subordinates fear and respect him then the SG would not have the guts to promote violence during the “fasting” month of national prayer and reconciliation,” he said.
“Davies has just shown the whole world his true colours and why zambia’s democracy is in real danger with thugs like Mwila being at the top of leadership, this is not leadership this is cowardice and it must be condemned by all well meaning Zambians. I don’t think the President will keep Mwila as SG because just this statement alone has the capabilities to bring chaos in the country.”
Mr Kambwili said the Secretary General is a mirror of the President adding that he does not think the humble leader of the country can turn to violence during the month that he suggested should be for prayers and reconciliation.
“If President Lungu does not act and fire this illiterate overzealous political lightweight who has zero following then the people of Zambia will know that violence stems from the top,” he said.
“When Mwila lost his election he looked like a lost child on a maize field, he could not believe that a young man like Chabi could knock him off his perch, but now it is clear for all to see that here is a man with a family promoting violence instead of condemning it. The police should take keen interest because this isn’t the first time Mwila is promoting criminality.”
He added, “President Lungu take this from me, this is the worst SG in the history of PF, his thinking is enxtremely shallow and pathetic which is making PF more unpopular by the day, the grassroots don’t like him nor do they support him, the only reason why he is tolerated is because you appointed him. It is now time to take affirmative action because I do not expect you the President to condone such thuggery.”
Mr Kambwili said the statement equally confirms that Kabushi Member of Parliament Bowman Lusambo did indeed physically attack me.
“Although I may not be your favourite citizen you still have to protect my rights as a voter. People of Zambia let us wait and see the action that will be taken by President Lungu on these adults behaving like toddlers.”
Meanwhile, Mr Kambwili has apologized to PF Deputy Secretary Mumbi Phiri for his remarks that she was so poor that she could not even afford to buy toilet paper.
Mr Kambwili on Wednesday attacked Mrs Phiri and claimed that he started buying her toilet paper after he discovered that her household was using old newspapers in the toilet.
“I would like to unreservedly apologise to my sister and friend Hon Mumbi Phiri for my sentiments yesterday. To error is human and to apologise is Devine. I exceeded the mark with what I said and it was wrong of me, it was a spare of the moment thing and I would like to retract that statement,” Mr Kambwili said.
“To you my sister I say sorry and kindly forgive me for what I had said about you. I have nothing whatsoever against you and that was too harsh of me. I got caught up in the moment so to speak, you have not said anything bad against me and I appreciate that, kindly find it in your heart to forgive me for my wrong doings.”
