Cornelius Mweetwa has not breached any law whatsoever to warrant an apology to the Vice-President

By ruthmuwowo • 4 weeks ago • 2873 views • 1000 comments

Governance, Elections, Advocacy, Research Services Initiative Zambia says Choma Central MP Cornelius Mweetwa has not breached any law whatsoever to warrant an apology to the Vice-President.

GEARS Initiative Zambia Executive Director McDonald Chipenzi says instead it is the Vice-President who has not been sincere to herself, the House and the nation at large who needs to apologise to the nation and the House.

Mr Chipenzi says Mrs Wina’s responses to questions posed to her on the floor of the HOUSE needs much to be desired and do not inspire confidence in her leadership as Leader of Government Business in the House, very un-researched and casual.

He said as an old politicians, young parliamentarians would have been learning from her to pursue a path of truth in their debates but she is full of speculative and un-researched answers/responses

“For instance, when the second office was asked about the Commissioner General of Zambia Prisons Service’s utterances in Monze regarding barring those opposed to President EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU to enter the gates of correctional facilities, her response was casual and frustrating not only to those who asked her but us the followers of parliamentary debates”, he said.

Mr Chipenzi said her response was that she has not received a report on the matter yet the President was there in Monze and the statement aired on a number of media outlets.

He said such kind of responses are what erodes her of befitting decorum as a Vice-President leading to young politicians describing her responses as shallow and shameful.

Mr Chipenzi said Mr Mweetwa has the right to demand concrete answers from the Vice-President on who was involved in the gassing of people and the gutting of the City market than the answers being accorded to the nation by the Vice-President.

“If Mweetwa is not satisfied and the Speaker does not intervene, the MP has all every right to describe such responses as “shallow and shameful” a sign that a more upright answer is needed instead of admonition from the Speaker”, he added.

Mr Chipenzi said if she is not researched her responses, let her office put up a team of researchers, otherwise, her responses will continue to be despised and described as “shallow and shameful” both in and outside parliament.

He said GEARS expect her to apologise to the opposition for falsely accusing them of gassing the people and gutting the City market instead of Mweetwa apologizing and to the nation for not giving any convincing answers to those two hideous acts and people behind such.

“Even me, i would not have apologized and would still describe her responses on gassing and the gutting of the City market as “shameful and shallow” as there is nothing disrespectful about that”, he added.

Mr Chipenzi said the speaker must be fair to Mr Mweetwa by demanding comprehensive responses from the Vice-President and the entire executive on questions raised by MPs on the floor of the House to avoid a burkee of mediocrity of answers.

He said the speaker must ask the Executive, through the Vice-President, on who was actually behind the gassing of the people and gutting of the City market.

Mr Chipenzi said if not proper and convincing answers are given, then the Vice-President must be made to apologise to the House, the Opposition and the Nation for misleading and lying to the nation putting the lives of innocent opposition in serious political danger.

“Many lives were lost and many people lost relatives and breadwinners on mere suspicions, speculations and based on finger pointing and yet the Vice-President approaches such with casual”, he said.

He said Parliament must be a place of truth and evidenced based answers not mere demand for respect from people who don’t deserve it just because they occupy certain positions of influence in the land or age.

Mr Chipenzi has warned that casual responses to serious matters attract casual descriptions and disrespectful debates therefore, such approaches by the Vice-President or any member of the Executive must not be acceptable or entertained by the Speaker.
