The Speaker not showing good judgement here at all; if he was aware that he was involved in a fatal accident. If not stopping to help the victim is not a crime, it certainly wrong morally. Regardless of perceived fear of being assaulted by witnesses or passersby.
The Speaker’s moral standing is now in question. Perhaps he should reconsider his position in parliament. I wonder what the opinion of Rev. Chakwera is on this subject. Or that of Jessie Kabwila-Kapasula. Principles before favoritism, please.
