United Party for National Development (UPND) President, Hakainde Hichilema has reiterated his election campaign promise to hike civil servants salaries to a minimum of K 3. 5 million per month once elected President on October 30, this year.

Mr Hichilema made the reiteration when he addressed two separate meetings at Kabompo town and Manyinga in Kabompo district yesterday, he said he was saddened by the current low wages paid to civil servants; saying once elected his government would pay higher salaries.

Mr Hichilema also promised that his government would provide free education from grade one to university and that his government would give free fertilizer and seeds to small scale farmers for the first three years to enhance food production.

He went on to say that his government would construct a bridge on Kabompo river at Watopa to provide the shortest route for trade between Kabompo and Lusaka, adding they would also complete tarring Mutanda-Chavuma road in three years time by providing three contractors at the same time who will be based in Kabompo, Zambezi and Chavuma respectively.

He further said once elected his government would build a hydro-power station at Chikata falls near Kabompo and do away with thermo electricity in order to enhance economic activities in the area.

Last week, North-Western Provincial Minister, Kenneth Chipungu cautioned people in the province against listening to false promises made by opposition parties during the campaigns but concentrate on supporting government of the day which has opened mines and discovered oil and gas in the province.

Addressing a stakeholders meeting in the council chamber, Mr Chipungu told the people that the New deal administration was in a hurry to complete the tarring of the Kasempa turn off-Chavuma road which is expected to reach Kabompo by 2010 and also build a hydro power station at Chikata falls in Kabompo in order to facilitate the setting up of oil and gas industries in Kabompo, Zambezi and Chavuma districts that would improve the welfare of the people in the province.

    Now i know that this man is a liar. Where will he get money to pay all loofers k500,000.00 per month? And to pay k3,500,000.00 to the lowest paid civil servant[a station handman].
    All the respect i had for him gone and no vote from me.

  11. flag It does not make any sense to me at all for a person who is aspiring for the highest office and worse more, who claims to be the most intelligent zambian to sink so low promise higher wages instead of more jobs. He really is an under 5. PABWATO CHABE....!

    what is wrong with hh and and his salaries?He wants to promote inflation.There are alot of issues that can sorted out to improve the welfare of Zambians.Increasing and sacrificing salaries is not an answer own its own.Its clear the old men have politically bruised hh

    Hamachende is suggestin strange economics 44 yrs old! Free fertilizers , no manufacturing plants! Free education, no universities( what we have now are upper secondery schools!) free health services meanwhile theres nothing in the hospitals. Hamach i wonder how you made your money, were you selling arms to Angola? You plan to reduce everything taxes inclusive and increase salaries? If you win, I wouldnt want to live in your mabisi country!

    Wow, this is comedy at it worst (or is it best). Where is this man going to get the money from? The equivalent of five hundred quid every month…. the young boy is just dreaming. Many more lies are coming lets wait and see….

  18. vote

    HH I don’t know who advised you on this statement but you need to get yourself back in the game. Stop it with these ignorant statements and go back to the HH who used to say credible things. Magande has signed a deal with the World Bank for $78.8 million and will still have a pending debt. We cannot afford to increase on spending, we are still spending more than we have in revenues as it is. Our Balance of payments has not changed and you want to increase spending. What this boils down to is with the increase in Salaries and the free fertilizer, it will mean either higher taxes or more debt or more inflation and we cannot afford that.

  19. vote

    I think politics of empty promises is a new strategie that has been adopted by a lot of zambian politicians, first it was Rb with his oil discovery story now it is this young man whom we should expect to have new and constructive ideas joining the bad wagon.Where are you going to get the money from HH for free education,free fertilizer and 3.5 million for the civil service ,keep in mind that if you increase for teachers only then the whole civil service will cry out for the same.This was also proposed by the current government and the donors refused.So HH where are going to get the money to do this when the zambian economy is mainly donor funded ?

  20. vote

    [cont]

    What you should be talking about is reducing spending and increasing credit. What you are suggesting now is subsidize education, healthcare, fertilizer and seeds by 100% which is crazy because it means either the BOZ will run to the printing press, World Bank/IMF or higher taxes.

    HH, whoever advised you on this should be fired. Get back in the game. Stop being desperate.

    I have lost hope in you HH. I thought you where right for the country. Anyway…..VIVA RUPIAH BANDA…VIVA MMD.

    It is 2009 and Zambia is on the verge of starvation. The country sends president HH to the United Nations to beg for food relief. Eventually he returns.

    Boy wake up stop dozing Zambia is a rich country. Money is there this a good redistribution of wealth. Instead of comnending why ask him where the money will come from. It seems Zambians are happy the way the wallop in poverty, sure how can a civil servant be getting 800 000 kwacha and pay K500 000 rent. Think twice but you bury this man with his good ideas intended for the Zambian citizens. You have a few days more to make a decision of your destination in life. Worse, doom or improvement of lifes.

  31. vote

    It is all about reinvestment and redistribution of wealth. Zambian forget easily, its not long ago when the campaign started the election was to cost k500 Billion kwacha and you conmended some people who opposite this, but when did the money come from to finance this election? Vote wisely, to be part of the wagon instead of just existng you can start living

    Okey, let us be real. K3.5m is about $100. If you run a small and efficient civil service this is acheivable. The man is an economist/Accountant, he knows what he is talking about.
    This not the same as promising to reduce the price of oil which we have no control of.

  36. vote

    #58, good point in the beginning, “small and efficient” civil service. What you’r basically saying is that government should offload more people onto the streets? If so has anybody said anything about where this “offload” will be accomodated.

    Hey pundits
    Please if you do not understand economics, do not post your baseless arguments about paying 3.5K in zambia. How nuch money have been misappropriated by the MMD guys in the past years.

I CAN GO ON AND ON ON VAROIUS ISSUES WHICH HH WILL BRING AS CHANGE TO HOW GOVERNMENT WILL BE RUN.PLEASE HAVE A TIME AND CHECK HIS WEBSITE http://WWW.HAKAHINDE.COM FOR YOU DOUBTING THOMASES.

  39. vote

    Another way to raise the money is by reducing government expenditure, efficient tax collection and reducing corruption in government. All these are acheivable if you have a motivated civil service. That is what HH is talking about. Please analyse issue before you critisize…in other words engage your brain before your mouth, in this case your finger.

    Ba #60 Bose, kindly enlighten us in case you know where the offloaded workforce from the civil service will go. Join the informal sector? Has upnd got a policy in place to this effect?

    Mind you, Zambia is so far behind in as far as infrustructure is concerned and you say we can afford 3.5m for the least paid civil servant.

    Ba Bose, enlighten us since you “sound” quite knowledgeable!

  42. vote

    Thanks #59, the offloaded civil service will be employed by the private sector. One of the corner stones in HH’s campaign has been the empowering of Zambian businesmen.

    I dont see anything wrong in HH suggesting to increase salaries of workers to improve lifes of Zambians. Money is there and it must be reallocated to the rightful people.

Read the Auditor general report and you see that money is there but has not been used properly since 1964.

    #71 Village Concept

    Zambia’s balance of payments is in the negatives and Magande has plunged us into more debt.

    We cannot afford to increase spending even more further. And the issue of increasing salaries will boost economic growth. That makes sense but the problem is most of those goods are foreign made. Zambia exports about 21% to South Africa and imports 51% from South Africa. What we need to do is reduce spending and increase the line of credit for various business owners and would be business owners.

    It is not the salary increment that bothers me a lot. It is the subsidies that HH is trying to apply. He plans to subsidize Education, Healthcare, Fertilizer and Seeds by 100%. I am not against this but this will mean more spending.

    Has anyone looked at out balance of payments lately.

    @59 the govt has ghost workers. Nephews, nieces, uncles, aunties and mulamu’s to these hopeless ministers are on govt payroll. Its just a matter of identifying who is who.

    By the way most of those in the civil service are not employed on merit so you ask all of them to reapply and then fish out the failures abakwata utusembe. (Ama 7 pali G 12certificate).

    Waishiba nomba ka???!!!

  60. vote

    Ok so on the fertilizer and seeds thing, I take it back. This has been proven to work in Malawi where fertilizer is subsidized by 100%. This has resulted in a huge increase in grain and grain export. Malawi produces so much Grain that it even exports to Zimbabwe. On the issue of free education, I am all for it. On the issue of salary increments, what needs to be done is the reduction of cabinet ministers or something of that sort. Anyway, to achieve this, they would have to be shifts in where the money is currently going.

    Maybe I haven’t thought about this very well.

How would HH convince the Zambian people that HH has some better to offer then with a record that him (HH) together with Sata failed to bring promises to the people? What will Zambian say when this marriage of convinience to win elections against MMD fails to tick or work? Are people going to think HH will have something diffferent to offer with a record of failure with PF? Infact Sata would say HH failed to improve things

    Infact, Sata – as Zambain President – in his usual sarcastic language would most likely be able say that HH failed to improve things with us and so, what else do you (Zambians) think he (HH) will offer you in his (HH) own capacity and the UPND?

    This situation is what I personally fear for Tsvingarai’s political future. Mugabe will proudly now accuse Tsvingarai of failing to deliver on his (Tsv.) earlier campaign messages when they will fail together as GNU.

If Sata, as undereducated as he is could manage to move from 1% or so votes in 2001 to 29% in 2006, what makes you think HH will not improve his (HH) votes from 26% in 2006 to something much higher in 2008?

    My response:
    Q.What is it that you’ve against PF?
    A.Bemba-Tribalists and Dictatorial tendencies
    Q.how much has HH paid you to continue campaigning to yourself?
    A. Nothing, I have never communicated with HH, but I am campaigning for HH because of the my own sake, my family and all Zambians’ future and well being.

    #108. my freind Villege Concept. I cant appologise for failing to come out right using a zambian language coz its mine too. And the Litunga, like Kazembe, Ndungu,Penzeni are all ours. Its our Zambia.
    To be a political leader you need to weigh matters and chart a better course, or balance up things as a means to a desired end. Its not just principle when so much is at stake and your contribution is vital. Look at Miyanda from where you get your village consept. He refused the presidency when it was his time coz of his lousy principles. And now HH is making the same mistake. Let him take a leaf from miyanda, the greatest president zambia never had. He could be in Banda’s possition now.

The thing is that we as Zambains have chosen to take the route of DEMOCRACY, and in a democracy you compete by offering your manifesto.
    It is like you are fighting to a girl or lady who is very single with 2 or more competitors to have her hand in marriage with you. Do you join your friend who has a BMW which you do not have at the moment to allow him get her for now and hope that when their relationship ends, then you can get that girl because you are now close to her by your BMW friend.

Believe me he could have eaily won that election but he worked alone. Lousy Criston went on to perfom much much better. Second chance Levy wanted to work with him as Vice Presi. he refused even though he didnt even have an MP in paliament. Levy wanted Miyanda to succeed him. On principle he refuesed. And He remain the Greatest President we never had. Leaders need to learn to balance things.

    #126, Zizi, thanks very much for the offer by no thanks. ecHi-ecHi is the only man standing. In fact RBB stands to come out as #3 in this race even with this hard-fought fight he has done. So, for RBB to atleast keep his current VEEP job upto 2011, let him and the MMD quickly endorse HH for Zambian President before time runs out on them.
    There is a lot of time before October 30, 2008 Presidential election. Imagine, the time remaining is aproximately 7 days 0 hours 40 minutes. Time is ticking and I expect RBB to do the nation what is honourable. HH and Sata with Miyanda all contested the 2006 elections and one of them deserves to be Zambian President while RBB is an outsider for now.

    I just fear for Zambia a great nation that God gave us. In His own wisdom God allowed KK to be the first reuplican president who promoted one Zambia one Nation. It was indeed good in those old days when people could be judged on their mental and intellectual capabilities and not the tribalism that was started by Chiluba and Sata which is dividing our great nation. Anyway God bless Zambia. One thing for sure is that shonas in Zimbabwe are suffering despite Mugabe being shona and this must remind tribal bembas that Sata’s failures will affect everyone including themselves. A reasonable person would not vote for Sata who changes stance every now and then to suit his desires for power.

    #140, thank you for everything, my fellow Zambian Citizen. Unfortunately or fortunately I hold high principles and my character is that of not compromising what has been taught to me by my family and the good Lord God.
    “Unless their be a compromise, there will never be backsliding” – UNKNOWN is my principle.
    Whether, HH loses or not I will continue looking up to the good Lord God for life each and everyday.
    Whether RBB or his campaign team offers me a job, I will not join them because of their reputation in the past 1 month. My hope is to see Zambians at home having the same money and infrastrusture I have been privileged to see in my life. HH offers Zambians this that I hope for.

Is our country so backwards for politicians to ask for votes in exchange of sugar and salaries? or is it because Zambians prefer leaders who turn a blind eye whilst others are looting coffers ? We will end up being prisoners in our own country if we allow such rubbish!

    HH is talking about the minimum wage for a civil servant. Currently highly trained civil servants are under paid to the tune of K800,000/month. Coverting k3,500,000/month into US dollars is about $9,600/ annum. To me this as a minimum wage for civil servants makes a lot of sense in a Zambian setup. The country can manage to give this minimum wage considering the current extravagancy in spending GRZ money. HH has it well calculated and has the right vision for Zambia. He remains the only focussed candidate among the 4. The sad news to all those against HH is that this is factual and can be done within three months of the new government.

    Yes, desparation kills. He has failed to address the key issues – money alone cannot equal to development. Promises and promises don’t work. That is why people don’t trust politicians. I would rather promise little and deliver more than I have promised. If i tabulate all the promises each of the thre prsidential candidates has made, it is clear to me that Zambia will go bankrupt. A bankrupt Zamba will nmean no president. Are they being sincere? the answer is NO NO NO NO. None of them will deliver anything but a bird in hand is worth a million in the Bush. Vote RB because none of them is anywhere near Mwanawasa – Sad but true!!

    #197, civil servants at what level? Zambia is a country where people do not understand the difference between lateral progression and vertical progression.

What are you talking about? His earlier promise of improving the work culture made more sense than promise salaries in a non-productive environment. He must learn to be consistent – Tumukomba tata muta chinyonyoni – you can do better – don’t be desparate!! Twalikushan Nklolola sweebo!!!

    #170, UNZA lecturers are highly educated, analytical and issue based in their approach to life due to being directely involved with the development of Zambia through education and research and they understand well issues of developing our nation. therefore they know who amomg the candidates understands issues of development in Zambia. We are not looking for comedians and selfish ambitions but who atleast talks like he can add meaning to the lives of the many Zambians today. that is why they support HH, as you see them doing so. Every well meaning Zambian will do so looking at the four candidates standing, HH is realistic and has what it takes to do what he preaches.

    HH is talking sense here. with this strategy, a lot of zambian abroad will be attracted to come back and work in zambia. zambia has spent a lot of money to educate zambians who have fled the country for greener pastures. zambia cannot afford to educate pipo for other country. increasing salaries looks expensive for low minded pipo but cheap for pipo who reason because most of the pipo trained using government resources will be retained.

    In all fairness HH did not give a time frame as to when he will hike the salaries.He just said he will do it once elected as President. This could be in three years after he has developed the economy and reduced excesses in govt expenditure.

    ‘United Party for National Development (UPND) President, Hakainde Hichilema has reiterated his election campaign promise to hike civil servants salaries to a minimum of K 3. 5 million per month once elected President on October 30, this year.’

    Why do u all say HH can’t pay K3.5m? The man can pay it. If Ministers are able to get K35M per month, plus K1.5bn (GRATUITY), K1m everyday for fuel, K2m per week for talk time, and many more; If all these monies from top govt officials is shared eqaully, I am sure K3.5m can’t be a problem.

    HH wants to give minimum K3.5 million! The question is when is he going to do that? He has not put any time frame to that one. You must understand that politicians are canning people. HH if voted in office would tell civil servants that he is committed to his promiss, and that at the right time he would fulfil his promiss. HH’s promiss is easy for all then parties to do, because there will be a time when the economy will dictate that it is only reasonable to have minimum K3.5 million due to Kwacha depreciation. HH can even tell people, “I am still commited to this promiss, I will do it when you vote me for the second term, because this 3 years I was still cleaning up the mess left by MMD”.

  192. vote

    NO!! I reiterate that HH and McCain are the only two presidential candidates who have promised fixed salary and insurance tags respectively. Fortunately even the group he is targeting cannot believe these empty lies ‘cause the consequences on the entire workforce in Zambia can be catastrophic. If viable companies can struggle to pay its few employees such kind of salaries, where on earth will HH stumble on that money? The only solution of ensuring that people have enough take home (net pay) is to reduce taxes on PAYE and anyone who is reasonable would agree. Viva Sata, Viva low PAYE.

If he is committed to his promissing staring JANUARY 2009, he must also explain how he will deal with the current budget which will run up to 31st march. HH must explain what exactly he will do than just leave hanging exciting statements to the people of Zambia.

What he does not know is that most, if not all, lozi chiefs are more eductated that him; they are able to tell when he is lying and when he is telling the truth.
    The only truth I see among SATA’s promisses is that He would not leave office in 2011 once elected.

He pointed out that between 2002 – 2006 due to government inefficiencies i.e. under bankings, misappropriation of funds and the works we’ve lost close to K14,000,000,000,000 (Fourteen Trillion Kwacha) and if we were to create an efficient economic environment these monies would be used to be re-distributed in the economy and yes our underpaid civil servants would also benefit.

    I have beenn listening to all the four parties standing in these presidential election and have found out that the most honest candidate is Miyanda followed very closely by RB. The most dishonesty candidate is SATA followed very closely by HH. Miyanda and RB appear to be very honesty while SATA appears to be very dishonesty followed by HH who appears to have some exceptions. This picture is very clear, but I know that some people cannot see this because of blind following. It’s like a person who is a womaniser, if you tell them that what they do is bad they will get annoyed and may even beat you up dispite knowing it themselves that what they do is definitely bad.

    It is easy to believe Sata because he is a liar.
    Liars are used in propaganda.
    Ask Chiluba and KK how they used Sata in campaigns.
    How many of those promises materialised?
    HH would not make a statement that is not workable. That is the advantage of “good education”.
    Professionals dont make statements that are not workable.
    They always research before making a statement of committment.

    I dont think its possible for HH to give S.servants that much, including free ferts, free edu to Uni. raise the tax free income to 1.5m etc. The promises made are some how questionable and dont hold any truth. This is a big lie. HH must be serious with real issues. I think this election we dont have a credible presidential candidate….

    The AUTHOR # 311. It’s true you are ignorant about the wealth(money) that Zambia has. I don’t blame you, but you should research and know your country. Visit a few countries in the SADC region and you will be shocked to see how much government workers earn per month in US DOLLARS. Zambia has that great capacity. ANYWAY, YOU ARE USED TO BEING CHEATED BY SATA and OTHERS OVER 17 YEARS NOW. Therefore, e3very thing you hear you think it’s lies.I CAN’T BLAME YOU BECAUSE YOUR RB and SATA governments failed you before.

  241. vote

    All of u who are supporting the ugliest guy,SATAna will have yourselves to blame if messes up this country.That guy is better off a minister thats all and not presido.
    HH on the other hand is a successful biz man but his biz can’t be extrapolated to haveing a successful economy of the country.so he better tell his dreams to pipo at chainama college or the looney bin at UTH.he can just hang.

    Currently, there is alot of financial indiscpline in the civil service, alot of exaggeration on prices of services and goods, prices are inflated as much as 400% in some cases. A simple example I can give is a ream of bond paper, this paper is supplied to the government at a cost of between K45,000 and K60,000. The reputable stationery shops in town sell this same paper at a price range of K14,900 to K22,000. Now if you PF cadres can consult people who know how to do calculations, tell me approximately how much paper is used per year and how much the govt is loosing by paying so much? And this suppliers are even paid before they supply so there is nothing like credit arrangements

  244. vote

    Reading between the lines, what HH is saying is that K 3.5M is the gross salary, the PAYE will be increased to 50%, that leaves you with K1.75m take home. With vat at 16.5%, the actual amount in your pocket is less K1.5M.

  245. vote

    HH should practice what he is promissing. Does he pay a minimum of K3.5m at his companies? Why should HH promiss to pay civil servants K3.5m with tax payer’s money just because he is desparate for votes?
    HH should be sincere, he give his workers K0.35m because it is his money, and he wants to give civil servant K3.5m (10 times) because it is tax payer money. HH accumulated K13 billil in less that two years, and to me he is able to give that money he is talking about to his workers but he does not do that. This speaks a volume of who this man is; he must be selfish to have all that to yourself and pay your workers little when you know that they must be getting K3.5m minimum.

  246. vote

    That shows how dull you are you skeptics. The man is educated and demonstrated wealth creation that all of you have failed to match, not even his opponents. It is doable. Read the Manifesto on wealth creation, job creation and empowerment of the Zambian people. Why should the educationists (teachers), nurses and the police should be the only ones left out to scounge? We need brains, innovation and creativity not the mediocricy of RB and MS. Look at these issues and who has the brains to articulate and provide leadership on agriculture,Finance Mining,Education, Health,Youth and sport, Energy and Global warming, Financial Crisis,Immigration, Social Security,Defense and security,Taxes and trade

    I agree with you. People are used to being told by these politicians that the country is poor. Zambia is not poor.
    The money is only for govt officials, that is Permanent Secretaries and their deputies. Those below them also find a way of stealing.
    They are all buidling big mansions in Kafue and Lusaka.
    Everyone wants to be a minister because govt has money they are eyeing.
    They get loans which they never pay back.

    Those that are saying that HH should pay his workers more, please think twice. HH’s businesses are just like any other in Zambia. The cost of doing in Zambia is the highest in the sub region. If what HH’s businesses are paying to its workers is comparable with other businesses, then that is ok. Moreover, his businesses are run by professionals that do things in the best interests of all stakeholders. So stop this nonsense of saying HH should pay his workers more.

  254. vote

    This sounds like a desperate & power hungry man. Its shocking that a man of his stature can make statements like that in public.
    Lets face it, Zambians are well aware that our country has’nt got that kind of money that we should pay civil servants a minimum of K3.5M, this man is a jocker! HH has not even showed how he intends to achieve all these promises.
    Its careless talk like this that gets reed of all daught in the public eye. He should ask B.Y.

    HH is talking about State funds to be paid out to its govt workers.
    That has nothing to do with him paying his workers peanuts.

    The question should be “is it possible for the govt to pay out so much?”
    And the answer from him is yes.

    Those people that saying how is it going to be possible to pay such wages are the reason that Zambia is still under developed. America is the greatest nation on earth because of its people. They believe in themselves. Our friends have gone to the moon because of their determination. We have been given a chance to elect a visionary leader and all you say is “how?”.

    #345. Mulelekwakaba,
    I judge personality by what they are and not what they say. What are HH’s beliefs over minimum pay? Does he practice it when he has such huge capacity do to it as an individual or he holds wealth to himself when he knows they are underpaid? Is he promissing just to win vote using state funds? I believe it is a selfishness to give out what does not belong to you, but hold tight what is in your pocket at the expense of your workers. If HH is genuine and honesty with his the food basket he is talking about, he should have started by giving the people under what he knows they deserve? HH knows what should be the minimum wage, but he doesn’t give it to his workers.

    and yet he is able to increase his wealth by over K13 billion in less than 2 years. To me that may appear to be dishonesty gain. Why dishonesty? Because he knows the salaries his workers should be getting but deliberately does not give them that money, instead it goes in his pocket. Let us be real with issues; he says MMD uses a thumb sack to determine tax free figure, we will use food basket, has he used it in his companies to determin minimum wage.
    It would have been different if HH did not know what the minimum wage should be, but since knows failure to give it to the people under him amounts to stealing from them, in my view.

  274. vote

    Thats the best man for Zambia. Young and educated. We kaponyas know that this can’t work. At least for now. HH is promising too much. K3.5million low pay for civil servants (a kapaso/messenger). K500,000.00 for us loafers per month. free education upto university level, free medical, free seed and fertiliser, low taxes, with the tax credit equitied to the food basket, low interest rates, an economic growth averaging 10% p.a. This is just to much and these are signs that all is not well. HH don’t be desperate 2011 is still coming. Don’t aspire for that office at all cost, maintain your principles and STOP tellin LIES.

    Tell your presidential candidates who you also know they are lying that I have told to cheat yourselves with them. They will not manage to cheat me. Some of them I had respect for them, like the young HH, but he is not real. His promises are for a vote not what he really is or what he will do for Zambia. I would rather trust people who are sober like Miyanda and RB. At least they show a sense of honesty. Not HH and SATA; they seem to make promisses mere for a vote – things they are not committed to. Atleast SATA has made one promiss which is what he even practices in his part – No elections once he comes to power.

  276. vote

    Zambian are prtentious, that is why the increased salaries should not be priority -community development as was in KK time through Sanitation and health, housing, social welfare, education, should take centre stage to restore the feeling of belonging before pipo can go out and spend their millions.

    If HH knows that paying your workers a minimum wage that will meet food basket is the right thing to do, does he need to wait to become president so that he can ecourage himself to pay his workers at Sun, GT, etc that minimum wage. What are trying to talk about? Are you telling us that you will defend HH in any way even when the mistake he is making is clear. HH will pay his workers well when he becomes president? Why not now, when he is accumulating such huge wealth for himself?

It comes down to numbers – votes for MMD, UPND, PF or HP. Can we please come up as a nation with a mechanism that gives us good leadership. I think one way is to expose our presidential candidates to national debates, so we can know who is making false promises. Unless we have ways of questioning them, we may not be able to plug this hole – the yap yap but no substance, and someone thinks he’s fit to lead us.
