Kabwe Central PF Member of Parliament Tutwa Ngulube has defended Commissioner General of the Zambia Correctional Service Dr. Chileshe Chisela who castigated the opposition UPND for shunning the commission of houses for his officers by President Edgar Lungu in Monze recently.
Mr Ngulube who is the Deputy Chief Whip and Lawyer says Dr. Chiselas sentiments were not in any way harmful and the PF supports the stance that he has taken.
He said Dr Chiselas sentiments of castigating the UPND were very innocent coming from a man who is aware that all Civil Servants are supposed to work with the government of the day.
Mr Ngulube said he expects the opposition to embrace development and not what was witnessed in Monze where President Edgar Lungu went to commission the houses.
“If the UPND continues with that same spirit they will never campaign in any PF strongholds”, said Mr Ngulube adding that the opposition party should not be deceived that they are about to form the government.
He added that Zambians will collectively ensure that the UPND does not form the government.
“Moreover, they have failed to choose a vice president, that is a sign already of deepening problems in the opposition and this will cost them a vote.
