MINISTER of Information and Broadcasting Services Chishimba Kambwili says United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema is bent on misleading Zambians in his attacks on President Lungu’s administration by peddling falsehoods.
And Mr Kambwili says it is impossible for MMD to give back Zamtel to LAPGreen of Libya because the former ruling party will never again form Government.
Speaking when he featured on a special interview on Sun FM in Ndola on Sunday night, the minister said Mr Hichilema is up to no good and cannot be entrusted with running the affairs of the country.
“But the people of Zambia are above such kind of political scenarios and are able to differentiate matters. He is aimed at misleading a few individuals,” Mr Kambwili said.
He added: “Please try and analyse what some of these opposition leaders say, you will realise that they are just politicking.”
Mr Kambwili, who is chief government spokesperson, said the opposition is envious of the development projects that the Patriotic Front (PF) administration has undertaken since assuming power four years ago.
The minister also dismissed claims by the UPND that the PF Government has failed to implement the Link Zambia 8,000 road project.
“For someone to go and say that the PF has failed to implement the Link Zambia 8,000 project is an excellent lie,” Mr Kambwili said.
He said it is unreasonable for the opposition to judge the PF’s performance in just a period of four years.
“Because nobody, no country in the world has developed in four years, what the PF is doing is correcting the wrongs that have been done in the past in order for us to build this country,” Mr Kambwili said.
