I will Not Insult My Political Opponents to Prove Myself-Mutati

Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) President Felix Mutati has told his party members that he will not spend time insulting his political opponents because it will not solve the many challenges the country is faced with.

Addressing an indoor meeting for party officials in Matero Constituency Mutati told members to stop expecting insults from him as a way of doing politics because it is not in him to insult opponents for political mileage.

He said it was sad the country is forced to see politicians exchanging insults when there is so much to do in the country adding that it should not take insults for one to be recognised as a good politician.

He said Zambia is big enough for politicians to coexist without resorting to insulting each other.

“We all have something to do for Zambia.. This country is big enough for all of us to co exist. It’s so sad we are forced to see our political leaders in the media quarreling everyday when there is so much to do in this country. You want me to be insulting everyone no! Every person was created with different abilities, everyone has a different talent, my talent is not talking about individuals, my talent is to work for people. My capital is in people.

“I will not waste time talking about individuals whose actions against me won’t change my being instead I will dedicate my time and energy to serve you and fight for your interests. Let those politicians whose talent is bickering continue to bicker we shall continue to serve,” he said.

And Mutati has called for patience among party members as the leadership puts things in order for it to be in the condition to contest and participate in elections effectively as opposed to just adding up numbers on the ballot papers.

He said the leadership was aware of the concerns from the grassroots as regards party’s non participation in by elections but that the party members should not be worried as the leadership was on top of things.

Mutati further said the leadership will soon announce the date for card renewals which will provide a road map on the party’s mobilization programs.

The MMD leader and his National Executive Committee Members are on a party mobilisation tour of constituencies in Lusaka District which he has been visiting after knocking of from work as he “does not want to steal from the Zambian people by engaging in party politics during work hours.” He has since visited Kanyama Constituency where he went Monday and Matero Constituency. He is expected to visit the remaining constituencies in the coming days.

    Mutati is a mature politician who can surely bring the desired expectations on the Zambian political scene. Unfortunately our political system is sidelining great men and women that can help mother Zambia move forward faster.
