Sinkamba scoffs at Anthony Bwalya’s outbursts against PF

By JOHN KOMBE

STATE House’s strong condemnation of the press conference held on Thursday by the former ruling party, the Patriotic Front (PF) is a waste of time and mere politics, Green Party president, Peter Sinkamba has said.

Mr Sinkmba says time for politics was over and as such, the ruling party should be focused on resolving the challenges that the people were facing as opposed to concentrating on attacking opposition political parties. 

He wondered why the ruling party should be preoccupied with fighting the opposition when that was not the mandate for which it was voted for.

Mr Sinkamba was commenting on a statement by State House and Presidential spokesperson, Anthony Bwalya who has blasted the former ruling party for criticizing President Hakainde Hiclema over a range of governance failures.

The PF at its end of year media briefing outlined an array of failures of the current government but Mr Bwalya has come our guns blazing and accused the former ruling party of recklessly destroying the economy among other things.

But Mr. Sinkamba described the attack on the PF as a joke, stating that it was mere politicking with the aim of pleasing President Hichilema.

He said that in as much as he was of the view that both political parties in question were just politicking, the ruling party should show leadership as he had a duty to focus on important issues that were affecting the citizens.  

He insisted that Zambians should not be subjected to politics throughout the term of office of a political party because that was retrogressive.  

The opposition leader alleged that the UPND had failed to resolve a number of issues since forming government, citing the challenges at Mopani Copper Mines and KCM mines as some of the pertinent issues which the government should focus on and not politicking.

“There are a number of issues that the government has failed to resolve since it came into office. The activities of the mines on the Copperbelt are almost at a halt.  The government needs to shift its attention to matters that will add value to the welfare of the people and not mere politics,” Mr. Sinkamba said.
