BELOW IS HIS FULL POSTING: Dr. Chishimba Kambwili Message to the UPND I would like to make it clear that I am not leaving the Patriotic Front, not now and not ever. I have never been a member of any other party except the marvellous greens of PF. Contrary to fake media reports, Hakainde Hichilema and his party did not win the August 11 elections, we beat them fair and square, and quite frankly we can do it all over again. I would like to appeal to the UPND not to involve me in their propaganda schemes because I remain a loyal member of the Patriotic Front. With regards to the pending Bye-elections around the country, I can guarantee you that I will bring out my campaign boots and go flat out and campaign with greater passion and vigour for the party of my choice, PF. Let me also reiterate that any statement by me will be released on my official Facebook page. Good day all True green The post Kambwili Fires At UPND: “We Can Beat You Pants Down, Again” appeared first on Zambia Reports.
