NAREP tells govt to find good legal advisers
The National Restoration Party (NAREP) has advised the government to be engaging in broader consultation with the stakeholders before making any policy decisions.
NAREP president Elias Chipimo says that there is need for the PF government to explain the rationale behind the creation of districts and also indicate to the Zambians the cost implications.
Mr. Chipimo notes that creation of the new districts is most likely to create temporary jobs that will come with the construction of infrastructure among others adding that government needs to come up with decisions that will have long term positive effects on the lives of the Zambians.
The opposition leader has also asked government to make public the costs involved in the reversal of the Zamtel sale to lapgreen of Libya.
He says that even if the government has a right to repossess assets that may seem to be of national interest, it is important for it to understand the consequences of such actions.
Mr. Chipimo has further advised president Sata to engage high calibre legalÂ advisors to avoid lapses Â in the operations of government.
He observes that government cannot rely on the attorney general alone as he is occupied with so many things in his line of duty.
Mr. Chipimo was speaking to journalists in Lusaka today.
And Mr. Chipimo has noted that there is no harm with the chipolopolo boys doing the “don’t kubeba”style when celebrating the scores on the pitch.
Mr. Chipimo says the copper bullet boys should be allowed to celebrate in the manner in which they feel like adding that soccer is not about politics but a unifying factor that should be used Â bring people together.
He has since wished the chipolopolo boys the very best into tomorrow’s final encounter with Ivory Coast.
