Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo has rubbished claims by National Democratic Congress NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili’s Claims that he is is behind the confusion engulfing the opposition political party.
Speaking in an interview in Ndola/Copperbelt province, the minister said it is totally retrogressive that the NDC leader would want to engage him in the manner he is doing throwing personal attacks while fabricating lies.
“It’s laughable! I don’t have time to waste on baseless issues like that, I have so much work to do. The Ministry of Home Affairs has got a lot of departments and portfolio functions so I can not start wasting my time on people who have nothing to do. no time and no energy to waste on such!”
Hon. Kampyongo said he as Minister of home Affairs has done nothing extraordinary that is not within the confines of the law and the regulations as guided by the ministerial mandate under which ministry the registrar of societies seats.
He said the registrar of societies is a body created by an act of parliament with a legal backing to register societies including political parties and does not segregate in the manner it Carrie’s out its mandate.
He says it is unfortunate that Mr Kambwili who was a legislator not long ago could could fail to understand the basic interpretation of the law.
Hon. Kampyongo said Mr Kambwili should desist from making personal attacks when addressing institutional issues whose channel is properly defined.
Yesterday NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili accused while at a press briefing held at his house in Luanshya accused the Home Affairs Minister of colluding with party secretary general Mwenya Musenge to destabilise the opposition political party.
