Kampyongo vows to die for Shiwang’andu residents


By Nation Reporter

GOEFFREY Bwalya Mwamba has a history of being violent and vulgar but let him know that I will defend Patriotic Front (PF) youths and the people of Shiwan’andu with my life, Steven Kampyongo has vowed.

Mr Kampyongo who is Shiwang’andu parliamentary candidate for the PF said he was not going to allow himself to sink to the morally low level of Mr Mwamba and begin exchanging invectives with him because he (Kampyongo) was a cultured man who respected elders.

Reacting to Mr Mwamba’s taunt that he (Kampyongo) was a little idiot, the Local Government and Housing Minister accused Mr Mwamba of having offloaded UPND cadres on Lusaka streets and communities who on Wednesday went on rampage beating citizens, spilling merchandise for traders and destroying property.

He said Mr Mwamba had proved beyond any form of reasonable doubt that he was beyond reformation and that should, in the unlikely event, the UPND formed government, Zambia would be politically, socially and morally sodomised.

Mr Kampyongo said each time Mr Mwamba opened his mouth, he only spewed insults and violent threats against citizens and warned that it would be politically catastrophic for the UPND to take over the governance of the country with a leadership that had fractured political and social morals.

He said Zambians were looking for a decent leadership and not the kind that only believed in themselves and their earthly wealth.

“I am not surprised that GBM (Mwamba) has failed to repent or transform because that is the kind of a man he has always been. Mr Mwamba has been a violent man and full of nothing but vulgar language against others and he has no respect for anyone. This must be a warning to Zambians that should the UPND inadvertently form government Zambia will be socially, politically and morally sodomised. But I am happy that Mr Mwamba and Mr Hichilema will never be in government,” Mr Kampyongo said
