HH demands clarity on reports that the PF Government has single-sourced a Zamtel buyer
Untied Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema has challenged President Michael Sata to clarify reports that the PF government has already single sourced a company to buy Zamtel following government’s decision to reverse its sale to LAP Green.
Mr. Hichilema said that if such reports prove to be true, then President Sata’s statements that he is allergic to corruption are unfortunate.
He said that the PF has embraced people who had been tagged corrupt, and yet claim to be allergic to corruption.
Mr. Hichilema further stated that the Zambian people voted for the PF to change the way the government was being run by the MMD, but that nothing has changed under the PF government.
He wondered why the PF had failed to fulfill the campaign promises it made to the Zambian people in the run up to the 2011 elections.
And the UPND leader has accused the Patriotic Front of being vindictive in the way it is fighting corruption.
Mr. Hichilema said that the fight against corruption should not be seen to be targeted at a certain group of people but should be widespread.
He has however welcomed the PF government’s investigation of former government leaders in the MMD, while calling for fair justice.
Mr. Hichilema was speaking this morning on Livingstone’s Zambezi FM monitored by QFM radio.
