Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) President Edith Nawakwi has challenged the PF Ministers to prove their usefulness as she came face to face with the deplorable state of the sewer system and impassable roads in Ndola’s Main Masala’s township.
A visibly moved Nawakwi challenged the PF Ministers to show cause why they should continue drawing hefty allowances from the national treasury when they have lamentably failed to address the pressing issues of hunger, poverty and disease and service delivery which the people have continued to endure.
“Surely, how can we let our people live in such pathetic conditions fifty years after independence. How can people be living in such homes where feacal matter is spewing all over their yards? One wonders whether we have a government or not. These PF Ministers and MPs only care about their stomachs. This should come to an end.”
President Nawakwi is in the Copperbelt to mobilise her Party in readiness for the 2016 elections. Ms Nawakwi who last weekend officiated at the FDD sponsored Edith Nawakwi Youth Soccer Tournament in Kabushi Constituency has been touring the Copperbelt meeting Party officials and the local people.
