I Don’t Understand The Panic On Rumours That I Can Join The UPND, Says Lusambo
I DON’T UNDERSTAND THE PANIC ON RUMOURS THAT I CAN JOIN THE UPND, SAYS LUSAMBO
I am now at peace after apologising to His Excellency President Hakainde Hichilema, I was being misled by a few people in our party, says Bowman Lusambo
And Lusambo says he doesn’t understand why people panic on rumours linking him to joining the ruling UPND party.
Addressing party members over the weekend, the PF strongman popularly known as Bulldozer said his life has now been completely transformed after the apology to President Hakainde Hichilema.
“My children and my family are all happy now. I feel a sense of fresh air around me. I was almost repeating my mistake of anger and bitterness after we lost elections in 2011. Remember that time after losing power to the PF in 2011, I became the MMD diehard and that brought me lots of problems with the system. There are those cowards who will always be telling you to continue fighting because you are courageous, but unknown to you, those are just cowards who can’t stand up to the system. I almost fell in the same trap after some people kept encouraging me to be hard on HH, yet they could not face him. Now I am facing all these problems and legal bills alone,” lamented Lusambo.
And Lusambo wondered why people were panicking on rumours that he was about to defect to the UPND.
“Look here. Me I am a politician and we politicians are nomadic, I came from MMD and joined the PF. Would it be strange if today I joined the UPND? As a matter of fact, I have lots of friends in the UPND, but I am not saying that I am joining UPND now, but if it ever happened, that should not be strange and there are more people like that who I know want to join the ruling UPND party. Even those very senior opposition leaders you see heavily criticising President Hakainde Hichilema during the day are busy meeting with the UPND officials at night. In fact, as a politician, I can tell you now that any politician is looking forward to meeting President HH now,” Lusambo said.
