UPND Fires Back At Cosmo Mumba

The opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) says New Revolution Party leader Cosmo Mumba has “paraded his insanity to the public” by labeling Hakainde Hichilema as “a Satanist” for asking about the health of President Michael Sata.

Yesterday Mumba, whose critics allege that he represents a PF front party, held a press briefing to deride Hichilema and claimed that over eight lawyers were on hand to defend him should he be sued.

UPND Deputy Secretary General Kuchunga Simusamba said there was nothing wrong about inquiring about the Head of State’s health if there was reasonable belief that something was wrong.

Simusamba said Mumba was “a political comedian” who should never be taken seriously.

“Cosmo Mumba is a well known political comedian with a warped mind. He has paraded his insanity before the Zambian public and they know him for who he is,” he said.

Mumba has a known history of jumping to the defence of incumbent governments. For a period of time, he was brought close to the last MMD government based on the promise of delivering the youth vote.
