UPND day-dreamers – Wynter Kabimba

STEVEN MVULA, Lusaka
RAINBOW party general-secretary Wynter Kabimba says the United Party for National Development (UPND) is chasing the wind by believing that the courts of law will declare its president Hakainde Hichilema as head of State.
Mr Kabimba, a lawyer and former Minister of Justice and Patriotic Front secretary-general, says what the UPND ought to do instead is to make a bold political decision and accept that President Lungu is head of State.
He said this in Lusaka yesterday during a Hot FM radio programme dubbed The Hot Seat.
Mr Kabimba said the UPND must forget about using the courts of law to mobilise itself because it is chasing the wind.
“UPND will make history if they are going to get the decision of the courts that Edgar Chagwa Lungu is not President and HH is the President.
“They will make history and Christ will thank them,” he said.
The Rainbow party leader said political parties that have succeeded like the PF did in 2011 have had to make very difficult decisions after taking into account the political situation in the country.
“This will be the first time in my over 30 years of practising law and over 50 years of reading history, especially about Africa, that you are going to find an election nullified or annulled in the courts of law,” he said.
Mr Kabimba said the UPND needs to distinguish between a legal problem and a political problem.
But UPND spokesperson Charles Kakoma says it is possible for the courts to overturn the 2016 presidential election result.
“This may not happen in Zambia but it has happened elsewhere, we have gone to court because we are seeking justice,” Mr Kakoma said.
Mr Kakoma claimed that even Jesus Christ is aware that the UPND won the election.
