Defecting MPs are Liars – Mucheleka

Lubansenshi Independent Member of Parliament Patrick Mucheleka says opposition MPs who are defecting to the ruling party claiming that is when they will take development are lying.

Featuring on Radio Phoenix’s Let The People Talk programme Mucheleka said the issue of subsidy removal had been done haphazardly without consistency.

Mucheleka said the individuals who were saying they were defecting to take development to their constituency were just selfish individuals.

“The issue of the people who are defecting claiming that they are doing so to take development to their area. That is a big lie because by virtue of being a Member of
Parliament I am a member of the government,” he said.

“It is the responsibility of the executive to take development everywhere in the country and not only for the ruling party. That is not true, those who are saying that are individuals who are selfish and are not telling the truth about their intentions.
