I can feed Sakeni and his family for the rest of their lives-Saunders
Outspoken political activist Dante Saunders has advised Chief Government Spokesman Kennedy Sakeni not to insult individuals and organisations that criticize the PF government’s governance style.
Mr. Saunders said Mr. Sakeni should reflect on some of his latest outburst against innocent citizens and individuals that criticize the PF’s way of running the country.
“You go and tell Sakeni, we don’t hate PF, infact some of us campaigned for the PF. All we want is for our children and our woman to live decent lives which we know is possible if this country was better governed.”
He said Mr. Sakeni’s accusations that those criticizing the PF are frustrated and bitter because they have not been allocated jobs by the government is ridiculous.
“Please tell Sakeni that I don’t need a job infact I can feed Sakeni and his entire family for the rest of their lives. I surely can’t expect Sakeni and his PF to give me a job because I don’t need a job,” Mr. Saunders said.
He also warned opposition leaders that he will not hesitate to criticize them when they form government and start departing from their promises to the people.
“For me it’s all about the people. Why should we continue living in townships without water, high food prices and no roads? I will also attack whoever next forms government as long as the plight of our people is not improved.”
Mr. Saunders was speaking in Lusaka yesterday during a UPND news briefing held at the party headquarters in Rhodespark.
Chief Government Spokesman Kennedy Sakeni recently rubbished Mr. Saunders’s recent attacks on the PF accusing him of bitterness after the government failed to award him with a job for having supported the PF campaigns.
