Why blame the MMD on everything, asks Dr. Nevers Mumba.
Opposition movement for multi party for democracy MMD presidential aspirant Nevers Mumba has charged that it is pointless for the patriotic front to blame the previous regime on almost everything.
Dr. Mumba says that the MMD brought a lot of relief to the Zambian economy which even international ratings organization noticed. Dr. Mumba says that under the MMD regime, the economy performed to the best of expectations which is currently dwindling.
He says that the language being used by some members of the patriotic is slowly threatening the country’s economy. He added in an interview with QFM radio that Zambians can remember how stable the currency was.
He says that foreign investors are not encouraged because of the attitude the government is portraying to such matters.
Meanwhile, Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) president Edith Nawakwi has charged that the decentralization policy can only be implemented with new the republican constitution in place.
Ms. Nawakwi states that political pronouncements will not yield positive results with regards to implementing the decentralization policy.
The FDD president has therefore called on government to speed up the constitution making process and come up with provisions that will support decentralization.
She has also observed that government has not shown tangible commitment in fulfilling its campaign of ensuring decentralization apart from creating more districts.
