Fr. Bwalya has challenged President Sata to tell the nation why it was right for him to shun independence celebrations and it is now wrong for Mr. Hichilema to shun the same commemorations.
Fr Bwalya has however stated that as long as his party is invited for state functions they will always attend.
He explains that national events such as independence celebrations are important because they provide an opportunity to show the country’s unity, love and to thank God as well show appreciation to the freedom fighters that fought for the country’s independence.
He has told Qfm that this does not however, mean that his party is happy about the alleged lack of medicine in the country’s Hospitals and the high cost of living under the Patriotic Front (PF) government.
