FRANK Bwalya says he drinks gin and tonic as well as whisky but says he does not sleep with prostitutes.
Bwalya, who is the PF’s chairman for information and publicity, said this when he was hosted on Joy FM’s Tikambilane Programme on Sunday in reaction to accusations that he had become a drunk and a womaniser.
He said he was a fan of alcoholic beverages but that he was not in the habit of misbehaving when drunk.
“Yes I drink; I like gin and tonic, but nshilala na ma hule (but I don’t sleep with prostitutes). Elo banono ebengalanda ati twalisangile ba Fr Frank Bwalya naba kolwa. Nangu twasengile ba Fr balecita misbehave, banono. Abengi kuti balanda ati twalimwene ba Frank baleshana ku wedding, pa table baikele paliko no twakunwa, limbi nitu Red wine, limbi ni ka castle, ndanwa teti nkane. Nomba icakuti na leya mukucita misbehave mung’anda bufi (There are a few people who can claim that ‘we found Fr Frank Bwalya drunk’. Many can claim that we found Fr Bwalya dancing at a wedding ceremony and his table had alcoholic beverages like red wine and Castle [lager]. But the claim that I misbehave with women is a lie),” Bwalya said.
“Bushe Mung’anda Mwaba GBM nalinwamo ubwalwa? Ae ni whisky eyo nalenwamo saana mung’anga yaba GBM [Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba]. Pantu gin and tonic chaba kwati abakwata tebengi. So nga nabakwata nalenwako, elyo teine neka iyo, elyo ine nshaba immature, ukulumbula ati twalenwa nacite kuli ba GBM. Ifyo ifyakutila naya nabanakashi fyena, awe. Balumbule umwanakashi naile nankwe, ninani? Nangu day naile no mwanakashi? Buwelewele amano naya pwa. Tabeshibe ifyo balacita pakuleta grade 12 certificate.”
Bwalya said he would go to the ECZ to find out which school the Kasama member of parliament sat his grade 12 examination.
During a press briefing recently, Mwamba said he could not take a challenge from Bwalya who was a drunk and a womaniser.
