The continued skyrocketing commodity prices since the removal of subsidies on fuel and agricultural product buttresses the resolve by the consortium of Civil Society Organisations (CSO) championing the Black Friday to continue the campaign until government finds a lasting solution in ameliorate the sufferings of the poor people in the country.

The rise in inflation by 0.3% as announced by the Central Statistics Office vindicates our argument on the negative impact of the government’s unilateral decision on the removal subsidies. In this regard, we are resolved to sustain the campaign and is so humbled by the overwhelming support from individuals, communities, CSOs and professional bodies.

In this vein, this week’s Black Friday Campaign was observed in the communities while sympathizers are urged to continue putting on black attire every Friday.

In preparation for the national prayer vigil coming in the next few days, Black Friday members and sympathizers are urged to visit and seek permission from various denominations and church leaders on Saturdays and Sundays to talk about the rising cost of living and the need for them to be part of the forthcoming national prayer vigil once the date is decided.

    The black Friday thing is nonsense. The people of Zambia have agreed to sacrifice as long as the fruits of their sweat will be seen, that is development. Sensible Zambians will only complain if the money raised from subsidy removal is misused. The people who voted for PF are quiet, all this nonsense is coming from the loosers whose votes PF can do without.
