KAMBWILI HAS A POINT ON VALDEN FINDLAY, PRESIDENT LUNGU MUST PUT HIM IN HIS PLACE
Our Country and its people will continue wallowing in poverty because we don’t really change Govts but people to come and loot. It is like changes of shifts at a gold mine called “Zambia” where different groups come and go to mine (loot) for themselves while the owners get nothing.
I don’t agree with most of things Dr. Kambwili personal attacks on President Lunguand other Govt officials, but I agree with him when he challenged President Edgar Lungu to tell the nation what business Valden Findlay has with Govt apart from being his personal friend.
I don’t know about Mr. Findlay being wanted for drug dealing in the United States of America, but I know that this man is very much part of the inner circles of President Lungu’s activities as if he is part of Govt.
President Lungu is human, like any of us, who should associate with friends during his free time, but the friendship with Findlay goes beyond, which makes other Govt officials uncomfortable though they can’t tell the President.
Though not always, but on several occasions Findlay has travelled with the President on the same plane, the question is, what is his business on the Presidential entourage, even if he pays for his expenses.
It’s also true that Findlay is one of the funders of the Presidential Empowerment Fund, which is okay, the problem is that, this man also gets a lot of businesses from Govt and he is still pushing for more. This could be described as corruption.
Anyway, I hope President Lungu can sort out this issue, to put Findlay out of Govt business and let him be just his friend and a businessman competing on the same level like others, because at the moment this man seems to be getting a lion’s share in many business deals.
