Outspoken Catholic Priest Fr. Frank Bwalya has announced that he is now forming a political party and immediately launched a yellow card campaign against President Michael Sata and the Patriotic Front government.

Fr. Bwalya who is currently speaking on Radio Phoenix’s Let The People Talk programme has asked other leaders of opposition to welcome him and has immediately called for a summit for opposition leaders.

The Catholic Priest who heavily campaigned for PF said he will register a political party which he did not disclose for fear of being sabotaged. He said his team and supporters were set to register the party and if the PF government stop him they will employ another strategy.

He however, said it is not a must for him to contest the elections in 2016 adding he will work closely with other opposition leaders and will be ready to steep aside in 2016 for Hakainde Hichilema or Nevers Mumba to run.

Fr. Bwalya explained that his coming out has send some fears saying those challenging him to form a political party were just politicking. He said the PF were scared that if he forms a party or work with the opposition.

“Zambia is perishing because Mr. Sata has no vision, his Ministers have vision but he doesn’t listen,” Fr. Bwalya said.

He said President Sata is not a messiah for Zambia adding that a messiah is coming. Fr. Bwalya said the President has alot of imperfections unlike Hakainde Hichilema who is being painted black.

Fr. Bwalya said in his party the position of Vice President will be held by a woman and urged the opposition that would want to work with him to take note of that.
He also announced that former Youth leader for PF Eric Chanda had resigned and was his General Secretary. He named Emmanuel Chilekwa as his Spokespeerson.

He explained that President Sata had betrayed the Zambian people as he has not lived upto his promise. Fr. Bwalya said he and other people put in alot to have Sata elected but has abandoned.

Fr. Bwalya said Sata had been hijacked by opportunist and had completely changed.

“This is not the Sata we know, the Sata we know died a long time,” Fr. Bwalya said.
