Edgar Lungu and those who have come to join PF must know that the sweet that they are enjoying today is from our sweat, says Roan member of parliament Chishimba Kambwili.
Kambwili who is also opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) 2021 presidential candidate has saluted the Lusaka High court for dismissing the application in which PF Secretary General Davies Mwila was seeking to challenge the Speaker of the National Assembly’s refusal to declare the Roan Parliamentary seat vacant.
In an interview with News Diggers, Kambwili sent a warning to those enjoying good life in the Patriotic Front through corruption and other criminal activities, saying his seat on building the ruling party would never go in vain.
“I believe in the saying ‘you shall know the truth and only the truth shall set you free’. So for those who stand on the truth, they shall remain on the truth and they shall forever be free. Those who want shortcuts, those who want to be unfair to others, only God will judge them and God will deal with them. So what happened in that [court] case is God dealing with people. People should not think that Zambia is a lawless country where you can just come up with your own thinking and think your own thinking will be obeyed by every arm of the State,” Kambwili said.
“There are people who mean well, who are genuine in their thinking and who follow the law. What the High court showed is that they just follow the law and not who is in government. Some people think when they are in government they can bulldoze anybody and push anybody and people will only take it the way they want to take it. But the High court has clearly showed PF hat Zambia is not lawless. It’s a country government by the rule of law.”
Asked if the Hight ruling against the PF Secretary General had restored his confidence in the judiciary, Kambwili said he had always believed that the judiciary was an independent arm of government.
“I have never lost confidence in the judiciary. Have I ever said I have lost confidence in the judiciary? I have never said that before myself, all I am saying is that there are genuine people. I mean, not all systems can be perfect. There are those who want to be politically inclined and want to make decisions based on which person is in power. But I think what the Hight court showed is that Zambia is governed by a set of rules and laws and they only followed the law. So I can only wish [Davies] Mwila and the PF all the best in their endeavours to try and be unfair to me,” Kambwili explained,
He further warned that those enjoying the fruits of his sweat in the PF would pay because God was watching them.
“Lungu and those other people who have come to PF must know that the sweet that they are enjoying today, it is from our sweat. And God never sleeps, he knows exactly who has contributed what to PF. God knows who created PF, God knows who built PF. So if they think they can be unfair with the people that created PF, for which they are enjoying, let them know that God does not sleep. My efforts to create PF and build PF cannot go to waste and people should not pretend that they are the ones that built PF. By the way, they are even misusing PF by stealing and engaging in corruption, pilfering. But for us, we genuinely built PF and that’s why God will protect us,” said Kambwili.
