Government says it is disappointed with the continued attacks against it in the Post Newspaper.
Chief Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili says the Post Newspaper has carried a story quoting former MMD National Secretary Richard Kachingwe as saying that “Zambia has been taken back to square one by a distorted leadership of the PF”.
Mr. Kambwili who is also Information Minister says Major Kachingwe should be the last person to raise a finger against the PF as he was the Chief Executive officer of the MMD when the PF kicked it out of office on account of poor performance.
He says Government is implementing various projects countrywide for all to see and that Major Kachingwe should not pretend that he is not seeing the developmental projects the PF Government is implementing.
And Mr. Kambwili has advised Bishop John Mambo to be in the forefront preaching and promoting love among citizens and not hatred as he is doing by supporting the Post Newspaper hate speech against President Lungu.
He says President Lungu has no agenda to harm any citizen of Zambia including Fred M’membe.
And Mr. Kambwili says Government is also disappointed with Press Association of Zambia -PAZA for its failure to condemn unethical and unprofessional conduct by some media houses..
He says a case in point is the story in today’s Post Newspaper where PAZA President Andrew Sakala is reported as saying that it is wrong for President Lungu to look at criticism reported in the Post as battle between him and its Editor -in-Chief.
And on another story carried by the paper on Professor Oliver Saasa’s predictions of the economy, Mr. Kambwili says the Professors statement is an act of day dreaming as nothing of that sort is going to happened under the PF Government.
