Patriotic Front PF Deputy Media Director Antonio Mwanza has said it is an embarrassment that Southern Province Chiefs Mukuni and Hamusonde have hired themselves to be propaganda agents for the opposition UPND.
Speaking in Lusaka today, Mr. Mwanza said it is unfortunate that the traditional leaders who are supposed to be the pillars of peace, unity and sanity are participating in politics of hate and bitterness by joining the wagon questioning President Edgar Lungu’s nationality.
Mr. Mwanza said he wonders how chiefs from Southern Province can question President Lungu’s nationality when their Eastern Province counterparts have already given a position on President Lungu’s origin.
He said it is unfortunate that the two traditional leaders from Southern Province are joining those questioning President Lungu’s origin as agents of propaganda following People’s Party leader Mike Mulongoti’s claims recently.
And Mr. Mwanza has challenged Chief Hamusonde who is Mr. Hichilema’s paternal uncle to tell the world who Mr. Hichilema’s real father is because HH are not his real names but Chintombwa.
He alleges that Mr. Hichilema comes from Angola, where his biological parents come from.
