The opposition Patriotic Front –PF- has written to the United States Charge’ de Affairs in Zambia David Young to complain about US President Joe Biden’s reference to the former ruling party as corrupt.
While addressing the United Nations General Assembly recently, US President praised Zambian youths for removing the PF, a party he said was corrupt from power through a vote.
But PF Vice President Given Lubinda says the former ruling party feels injured by sentiments issued by Mr. Biden.
Speaking when he featured on the Phoenix FM’s Friday edition of “Let the people talk programme”, Mr. Lubinda has charged that the US President should appreciate Zambia for teaching his country true democracy as opposed to what obtains there.
Mr. Lubinda says while Zambia has had smooth transition of governments, the US government has failed as witnessed by the recent refusal by former us president Donald Trump to hand over power to Mr. Biden.
Meanwhile, Mr. Lubinda has accused the UPND government of victimizing patriotic front members on the pretext of investigating all corruption by the former ruling party.
