Chikondi Foundation President Bishop John Mambo says he has not been paid by anyone to malign anyone over the running of the country’s mining sector.
Reacting to Youth and Sports Minister Chishimba Kambwili’s assertions that Bishop Mambo along with Kitwe based Anglican Priest Fr Richard Luonde have been paid to malign Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda, Bishop Mambo said no amount of money can buy him off.
Bishop Mambo reiterated that he will continue speaking out on issues that are going on in the nation.
“No one can buy me except blood of the lamb. I have stood for the truth and no money can buy me. If Mr Kambwili has evidence of the person paying me to speak, let him go ahead and name that person who paid me,” Bishop Mambo stated.
He said he is disappointed that an Honourable Minister should be going round scandalizing people without any evidence.
Meanwhile, Fr Luonde said Mr Kambwili’s reaction to the matter leaves much to be desired.
Fr Luonde said he has a lot of respect for Mr Kambwili but that his reaction is unfortunate.
He said no one has paid him to speak on the issues affecting the nation.
