Chinsali freedom fighters scorn Fr Bwalya

By KAIKO NAMUSA –

FORMER freedom fighters from Chinsali District have taken a swipe at Catholic priest Frank Bwalya for issuing disparaging remarks against the Government and President Michael Sata.

The former freedom fighters said they were ready to take on the Catholic priest-cum-politician so that he learns to respect elders.

They were speaking in Lusaka yesterday when they visited President Michael Sata at State House to show support and denounce the clergyman.

Samson Chifwamba, who spoke on behalf of the 20 former freedom fighters, condemned Fr Bwalya for his negative stance against President Sata.

Mr Chifwamba said the group was willing to take on Fr Bwalya who had joined active politics for initiation on how to respect elders.

“We are here, President Sata to thank you for the development that your Government has brought to Chinsali and Muchinga Province. We are also here to condemn Fr Bwalya for showing disrespect to elders including you.
