NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili has charged that claims by PF Secretary General Davies Mwila that he has been secretly calling President Edgar Lungu with the intention of rejoining the party are fails.
In a statement, Dr Kambwili said he is not interested in rejoining PF and at no point has he ever called President Lungu to ask for readmission into PF.
“Davies Mwila is merely hallucinating and in turn embarrassing the Head of State because as an opposition leader I have every right to call the President to offer him counsel and direction on matters to do with national interest and I do not think President Lungu can divulge such,” Dr Kambwili said.
“That being said I can only ask the general public to ignore Mwila’s uncoordinated lies and rantings. I am a man of principle and I am firmly focused on delivering with the National Democratic Congress, the fastest growing political party,” he said.
“My resolve has been and will continue to be about providing viable alternative leadership.”
Dr Kambwili said he understands the rate at which the NDC is growing coupled with the rate at which the economy is dwindling makes Mr. Mwila uneasy because just like the rest of his colleagues no one really knows if they will wake up with a job tomorrow.
“To cut the long story short. Davies Mwila is lying about me communicating to Lungu just like he lied that he would resign if NDC beat PF in roan. Kindly treat his false statement with the contempt it deserves. By the way Davies should know he is an outgoing SG who will soon be jobless. His replacement is waiting in the stands.”
