Choma Central UPND Member of Parliament Cornelius Mweetwa has been condemned for disrespecting Vice President Inonge Wina by calling her shallow and shameful.

Authentic Advocate for Justice and Democracy Public Relations Director Samuel Banda tells Smart Eagles via telephone that his organization is disappointed and saddened with Mr. Mweetwa with the way he attacked Her Honor the Vice President Mrs. Wina’s character.

Mr. Banda says the Vice President deserves respect from every citizen regardless of their ethnic background, political or religious affiliation.

“The Vice President is not just the leader of this country but she is also a mother of the nation, hence she deserves respect from every well meaning Zambian citizens,” he said.

“Zambian people should not trust people who do not respect their elders. It is worth noting that respect is both a virtue and value everyone must strive to practice. Disrespect of national leaders and elderly in society is not only alien to the African culture, unZambian, but also unacceptable in a Christian nation like Zambia.”

He added that it is sad that the MP has also refused to take responsibility for what he did by failing to apologise to the Vice President.

“What kind of a leader is he if he can’t apologize for doing something wrong? To be a truly effective leader, you must lead by example. True leaders do not disrespect their team but support each other,” he stated.

“As Authentic Advocate for Justice and Democracy we urge those abusing the freedom of expression and the media by persistently attacking the character of their leaders to desist from doing so. Yes we have the freedom of expression but we should know how and when to express ourselves and in a respectable manner,” said Mr. Banda. -SMART EAGLES

  1. Whoever this Banda is, let him just eat quietly. Being old is not a free ticket to telling lies about others. Did she not lie against opposition over market fires/ Over gassing? What integrity does she have to deserve the respect you are asking. Banda if you don’t know they say cindiko mwaice nga nao akucindike. If you cannot respect young ones, do not expect respect in turn. If you are a job seeker or a beggar just do so quietly. Mweetwa did nothing wrong.

  2. Again what did Mwetwa do wrong? failing to apologize for calling some one shallow? One shallowness is exhibited by the way one behaves and manages situations and responds to demands that require country leadership. Has she done so in all fairness. If she throws punches, she should expect to be punched back. Its his right to decide to apologize or not too. So back off Mwetwa

  3. ITS ONLY NINCOMPOOPS WHO INSIST THAT PEOPLE SHOULD BE RESPECTED ON ACCOUNT OF THEIR AGE OR POSITION HELD. THEY SHOULD REALIZE THAT THE RESPECT ACCORDED A PERSON STEMS MORE FROM THEIR CHARACTER THAN FROM THE NUMBER OF GREY HAIRS ON THEIR BODY OR BECAUSE THEY ARE REFERRED TO AS “HONORABLE.” THEY SHOULD PROVE BY THEIR CHARACTER AND BEHAVIOR THAT THEY DESERVE RESPECT. AGE OR POSITION CANNOT BE RESPECT AS AN ABSTRACT ENTITY DISTINCT FROM THE HOLDER’S CHARACTER.
    CORNELIUS MUST CONTINUE WITH SUCH CHECKS AND REMINDERS!

  4. Those that do not wish to be stung by bees should not get honey from bee hives. If one is too old, it is wise to avoid volatile positions.Mrs. Inonge Wina has done more harm even to undermine the freedom of her people and the Barotse Loyal Establishment.
