RB feels sorry for 90 days ‘philosophy’ believers
Former Republican President Rupiah Banda said that he feels sorry for the people that believed the Patriotic Front campaign promise of developing Zambia in 90 days.
Mr Banda said that he is not surprised that the Patriotic Front has failed to honor its 90 days development plan. He said that for the PF government to move in the area of development, it should ensure that it builds on the structures the MMD left.
Mr Banda said that he has never bothered to castigate the PF government on some of the promises it made to the people of Zambia because he knew they were never achievable.
And Mr Banda has charged that had the PF government consulted him on the Barotseland agreement, it wouldn’t have found itself in the current situation.
The former president said that it is a pity that no one from the Patriotic Front bothered to consult him on the progress the MMD made on the Barotseland agreement.
He said that the MMD made some headways on the Barotseland and government was supposed to consult him on the matter.
Meanwhile, the former president has urged young Zambians to ensure that they protect the country. He said that though the challenges facing the youth such as unemployment have persisted, his government tried its best to ensure that young people were embraced in national matters.
And Mr. Banda has explained why he broke down during his farewell speech to nation following his defeat in the elections. The former head of state explained that he got emotional especially after thinking about the people who would lose jobs as a result of his defeat.
He said he enjoyed working for the people of Zambia and that he will always miss that.
