UPND Vice President, Mutale Nalumango says its unfortunate for the Patriotic Front-PF-led government to be dishing out huge sums of money through the so-called empowerment and social cash transfer (SCT) while it claims to have no resources to better the lives of Zambians.
Speaking on Radio Phoenix’s Let the People Talk this morning, Ms Nalumango said that it was unbelievable and evil for PF officials and cadres to be flashing huge sums of money at the expense of majority Zambians, most of whom were wallowing in abject poverty and unable to buy essential medicines.
“PF says it has no money. As the ruling party, it is the custodian of public resources. But this is the money they are using to build mansions and give to
poor, unsuspecting Zambians as empowerment when it is actually their (people’s) money. PF is evil!” said Ms Nalumango.
She said the PF’s failure to formulate policies that would enable it to improve the living standards of people was an indication of how inept the ruling party was.
And commenting on the infamous, fallen BILL Number 10 of 2019, she said there was nothing to say about the said piece of legislation because PF wanted to use it to blackmail Zambians especially women and persons with disabilities.
Ms Nalumango also appealed to Zambians not to be deceived by the PF’s newly-found habit of splashing huge sums of money, stating that the money whose source was not known belonged to them.
She said that it was disheartening and amounted to an act of thievery for PF cadres, most of whom had nothing before forming Government to be displaying colossal sums of money whose source was questionable.
“Most PF officials and cadres had nothing (prior to forming Government), but today they are showing-off and boasting about living big at the expense of the [majority] Zambian people,” she said.
Meanwhile she expressed happiness that the majority of the Zambian people were aware of PF numerous corrupt activities by the PF and they were only waiting for August 12 on which to usher into office UPND President, Hakainde Hichilema.
“It’s the entire PF including its leadership to go because they have inflicted poverty and misery in the people of Zambia.” said Ms Nalumango.
She revealed that UPND in government will partner with the people of Zambia to fight and eradicate corruption.
