People’s Party President Mike Mulongoti says President Edgar Lungu has shown signs of lacking priorities by spending time on irrelevant activities and travelling unnecessarily.
Mr Mulongoti said the recent travels within and outside the country that President Lungu has undertaken leave much to be desired.
He cited the recent opening of the Mukuba Mall by President Lungu in Kitwe is another confirm that he does not know his priorities.
“Surely does it have it take the entire Head of State to go and commission a private shopping mall? Do we know how much it costs to have the President with his entourage leave office and move about like that? President Lungu needs to be serious with governing the nation,” Mr Mulongoti said.
He added, ‘Just the other day, he was away in Mpika commissioning a third level hospital, these are activities that could be done by Ministers or their Deputies or indeed District Commissioners.”
Mr Mulongoti said President Lungu needs to start spending more time in his office to respond to the many development concerns from Zambians.
“He is becoming very casual with the office he occupied and in the end he is not inspiring confidence especially in the business community because he does not seem to know what he is doing,” he said.
Mr Mulongoti said the 90 days of President Lungu have been characterized by lack of consistency on most key areas of national development.
