HH speaking to Journalists just before casting his vote
HH speaking to Journalists

United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema has said that the the 2016 budget presented by Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda does not inspire anyone. In a statement made available to the media, the UPND leader said that as much as the budget appears to have increased, it is actually a reduction in real terms on last year’s because of the 40% depreciation of the Kwacha.

Below is the full Statement

Budget Note: National Budget 2016

The 2016 budget presented by Hon Alexander Chikwanda fails to inspire anyone. The failure to inspire is as a result of the fact that it is blatantly skewed towards the Executive and proposes little that will materially improve the situation of the majority of Zambians who have seen a marked decline in their standard of living in recent months.

For starters this budget, much as it appears to have increased, is actually a reduction in real terms on last year because the kwacha has devalued by 45% since then. Thus the purchasing power of this budget is nearly 40% less than last year’s budget. What do we mean? Last year the budget was ZMW46.7 billion (US$7.4 billion) while the ZMW 53.1 billion for this year translates to only US$4.6 billion. In a country that imports 80% of what it consumes, even down to the bitumen we use for road construction, the question is how will we pay for all these goods and services?

When one analyses the budget speech and the Yellow Book, the theme does not seem to be properly represented. In fact, “Fiscal Consolidation to Safeguard Our Past Achievements and Secure a Prosperous Future for All”, is a far cry in this dispensation. How have they killed our past? Simple. When the PF arrived in office the external debt was US$1.1 billion, it’s now at US$6.3 billion, while domestic debt has doubled from ZMW13.8 billion to ZMW26.5 billion. The result is we are now condemned to spend more each year on paying the interest on our debts than on vital areas such as healthcare. For example, the 2016 budget has allocated ZMW 7.1 billion to service external and domestic debt interest, but only ZMW 4.4 billion on health! To therefore say we safeguard our past is an insult to the intelligence of the Zambian people who are much wiser.

In addition to the high interest payments, questions remain regarding the creation of a sink fund. We are not sure how this will operate, but if the idea is to grow it to US$750 million to pay off the first bond, we need to be serious in how we invest that money. If it ends up with cadres again, we are not safeguarding our future at all.

There is also no demonstration that this budget will reduce on expenditure aimed at consumption. There is not a mention of that in the current budget. To therefore claim that the budget deficit will reduce is an over statement by the Minister.

The specifics:-

The Economy

The Zambian economy needs to grow at over 10% in order to make any meaningful gains. This growth must be derived at least in part from agriculture, primarily because 80% of our people are employed in the sector and the potential for the expansion of value-addition sub-sectors, as well as productivity increases, is clear. The next sectors that must be targeted are the manufacturing and energy sectors. This is how we thought this budget should have been structured.

Agriculture

Our expectation was simple. We expected the budget to address the value chain. This means from production, through value-addition and all the way to the market. Crop productivity is not as a result of over reliance on maize, it’s often because of poor agriculture practices due to lack of extension services, in addition to the late delivery of inputs and payments by government and the FRA. In some instances all farmers need is to be educated on the type of seed to use to makes a difference. We therefore expected that the Minister would propose the reinvigoration of extension services coupled with a stable agriculture marketing system backed by law. For a long time our farmers have been at the mercy of exploitative businessmen who have taken advantage of the FRA that fails to pay farmers on time.

Of the over 2 billion kwacha allocated to agriculture, less than 1% is dedicated to extension services. The rest is FISP and Grain Marketing. What is interesting is the level of investment in irrigation, which has IDSP whose product is aimed at commercial farmers. When will government attend to the poor people of Zambia who are most in need of support?

Energy

Zambia currently has a huge power deficit. Our people are very depressed that the Government, which claims our situation is an act of nature (drought), can still go back to the same power generation means (hydro). All the pronouncements made by the Minister sound logical and good on paper, but we are faced with an el-nino phenomenon this coming season. That implies a drought, how then will these power stations run?

Our expectation was that more incentives would be given to alternative energy producers. We are still talking of non-renewable energy such as Kenya’s 5-year project to develop a 1 Gigawatt (1000 Megawatt) solar power plant. What is fundamentally different between Zambia and Kenya we ask? The important differences here are that they have two things, the first is a robust private sector and the second a cost reflective tariff. As long as Government, through Zesco, continues making an offer price that is less than the market price, to Independent Power Producers (IPPs) there will be no uptakers in this sector and we shall continue to struggle with power production. What we expected were real incentives, not cosmetic measures such as the ones announced in the budget.

Manufacturing

This, according to our manifesto is a top priority. Manufacturing does not just mean mega factories, but it can even mean small cottage industries that add value to our products. We have in mind agricultural produce as a starting point. There is no justification for Zambia to import peanut butter or long life milk for example. These are products that can be manufactured here in Zambia as long as proper value-addition strategies, such as financial products and market linkages, are put in place. Zambia cannot be importing what it eats when we have a hardworking cadre of farmers that can produce nearly all the products that we see on the shelves of multinational supermarkets.

Tourism

We can tell the Minister upfront that Zambia’s tourists should not only be considered to be those who use aircraft, but also the 15 million Zambians that live in Zambia. To therefore mention that we will have a national airline as a way to promote tourism is missing out on this huge tourist cadre. What we need in tourism is to start developing products for the Zambian tourist as well. This could include financial products, and tax incentives on hotel and tourist facilities that take in Zambian tourists. The focus must be on sustainable and income generating tourist products, not a national airline when airport upgrade projects are still running well behind schedule.

Mining

Commodities go through cycles all the time. What is clear, however, is that Government has failed to capitalise on the years of high copper prices, as well as to plan in advance for a downturn that could have been anticipated. The sustained high copper prices from 2006 were driven largely by a single user; China. Despite several warnings that the economy of China was beginning to overheat as early as 2009, the warnings were largely ignored. We should have shored our economy against this hiccup. One way was to immediately embark on diversifying the economy and developing industries that produce import substitution. To try to “fatten the cow on the marketing day” is highly unlikely to achieve the intended results.

Our advice is this; let Government provide incentives to the mines to ameliorate the dual situation of poor copper prices and most importantly load shedding. What has caused the strain on the mines is load shedding more than anything else. In the 90’s copper was selling for less that US$2,000 a metric ton. But the mining companies largely survived. The PF took over when copper prices were at US$8,300 prices. Where were they to now start talking of diversifying from copper?

Education

The Minister intends to continue building infrastructure. There is something wrong with this approach to quality education. Education can happen anywhere, actually in developed countries there have what they now call home schooling. The reason is simple, populations grow and the Government can only provide so much infrastructure.

What we expected from the Minister was to allocate money to quality education and education that imparts skills on the learners. But what is even worse is that the education budget has been cut by ZMW290 million. What this means is that the education budget in purchase power parity is down by over 40% given the kwacha to the dollar has slid as much as 45% from this time last year. Our expectation was again that there would be student loan reform and increased involvement of the private sector in this issue. Students need to be sponsored, and the amount allocated is not going to solve this problem.

Health

Again this issue has been reduced to infrastructure development. Health economists will tell you that it’s cheaper to prevent illness than to cure it. That is why the adage prevention is better than cure applies here.

What we expected again was health care reform that includes a robust national health care insurance system. The shortages of drugs in hospitals, the shortage of human resources cannot be resolved by building more hospitals. We can run a successful health care system if we address primary care. The people sleeping on floors at UTH and other major hospitals can be treated at primary care level hospitals if only they were functional. This is what we expected the PF to do, not a story of infrastructure only again.

Conclusion

As we stated at the outset this budget is not pro-poor. The Government has taken away from social sectors an amount of 7.1 billion (13%) that would have been used for investment in order to pay interest on debts that have delivered little material benefit to the majority of Zambians. They are anchoring the health of the economy on an out-dated method for calculating debt sustainability. We cannot be looking at GDP when we do not have a mechanism for collecting taxes due to us. We can tell you now that this budget will not do anything to the high poverty levels experienced in this country. As a matter of fact we shall have a poorer Zambia and yet more hunger by the time UPND takes over Government next year.

    • Another classic. HH shows how it is supposed to be done. Tourism is a good example,How can thePF govt be banking on creating a national airline just for the sole purpose of international tourist arrivals when you could easily organized locals to improve occupancy of tourist spots. We could even do a commercial traditional ceremony circuit to be attended by 99% locals and generate revenue.

    • The statement is a were research and thought through. A nation can only move forward in modern times if its leaders and citizens are strategists. Anything less than being strategic is bound to fail and is the class issues Zambia is facing today. It is possible for anyone to borrow him/herself out of poverty unless the loan is meant for productivity and later it pays itself. PF thinks a loan can be obtained to contain a consumption issue only later to be paid a sinking fund which has no backbone to support its creation.

  1. Only a person living in Kuku land can fail to see the issues highlighted in this article. You want to pretend and yet you`re suffering and living in the dark half the time. Yes it`s lets build structures but what happens when you have a structure and no one to man it?. In short, there must be a balance between investments in infrastructure and investments in social amenities. A building will not attend to you when you`re sick but a doctor or nurse will do so. better still the availability of drugs in these empty structures. These empty structures need teachers to teach PF carders to see the invisible sense in statements such as this one from HH. Am not UPND but here I agree with HH. Chikwanda is day dreaming. N-way let people suffer until they wake up from slumber. Nothing is more…

  2. HH now this is what am talking about, offering solutions… Keep it up.! I have been a critic of UPND not because of am Pro PF but because you (HH) never use to offer to solve problems up until now. This is what I have been waiting for. Not the ”I will tell you what can be done once am elected president” attitude. It’s like going for interviews, they ask you what will you do differently should we employ you and your answer is ”Employ me first then I will tell you what I can do to turn things around”.

    This what you HH and UPND must adopt as a message for your campaigns and stick to it. One last word of advice, tell your supporters to stop insulting everyone who disagrees with your message.

  9. This HH guy is good at destroying, not building. During the ill-fated privatization programme, he wantonly participated in the sale of companies, for a song; Luanshya mine was one of them. So, that is why he thinks it’s not possible to create jobs. All he has done is to steal from the poor, under the pretext of privatization. So, he will never like anyone who wants to do something progressive for the masses. Deep down his heart he knows that it’s the despicable privatization he and other criminal elements participated in, which has brought most of the current economic ills, such as high unemployment and weak manufacturing base, he is talking about. Let him tell us why Colgate Palmolive, Refined Oil Products (ROP), LENCO, Premium Oils, Dunlop, Zamhort, Zambia Airways, UBZ, CH, Rover

      There was this notorious boy at school who would fart and point at some girls as culprits…lol,

      Who privatised the the State Owned Companies or Parastatals? Hear this and hear it very good: the mines were privatised by the MMD government under President Chiluba through the Zambia Privatisation Agency now transformed to Zambia Development Agency (ZDA) under Ministry of Trade, Commerce and Industry.

      Who participated in the privatisation of the mines. Various professional bodies such as lawyers, accountants, valuation surveyors participated.

      The major benefeciaries of providing valuation and management advisory services were Deloitte, Peat Marwick and PriceWaterHouse. Some crumbs were given to Grant Thornton then managed by HH.

    • The fact is HH is the majority shareholder of Zambezi sun formerly Intercontinental Livingstone Hotel. it was sold for a song to the third bidder! higher bids were rejected on HHs ‘advice’ and self interest opinions. HH used his dubious business minions to acquire state owned properties at ridicuoulsy low prices without declaring interest in the sale. He has on several occasions lamentably failed to accurately answer questions as to how he acquired his wealth. It is stinking dirty money not worth to admire. Come 2016 we shall expose further the rot the makes this Chief Tribalist HH, to finish him politically once for all. Most Zambians are Not too dull to reason logically

HH is still alive, why hasn’t the ACC, the Police, or even the Zambia Defence forces arrested him for selling Govt owned parastals? Lets not mislead innocent people for the sake of Political expediency. Zambia is where it is due to blind cadreship.

He has given a general policy direction on issues that are not adequately addressed to alleviate the suffering and improve our economy, the Technocrats can interpret and map out the route, the hands on guys can do the work. That is how successful companies (read economies) work; clear strategic plans (what needs to be done, goals, resources, empowerment etc) by a well balanced Board with an astute Leader, broken down to tasks and timelines on the plan by qualified technocrats not cadres and implementation by the shop floor (dedicated workforce, consumers – you and me) with proper up and down linkages – a well coordinated system and well lubricated machine. eg on health;…

  17. The so called analysis is exaggerating the extent of the dollar component of our economy and budget.
    His whole argument is based on a weak assumption that all our national expenditure is dollar based and we only use kwacha for reporting purposes. That is far from the truth, and I will show you how.
    If we use the import figure proportion of the economy as a rough measure of the extent of the dollar component, we get to 28% ($8b/$29b). This would mean that the fall in the kwacha would only impact 28% of our budget!
    Not the 100% of the budget that HH is talking about. That is why, for example, certain sectors of the economy would feel the full impact, if any, of the kwacha movements.
    I should have expected a more reasoned argument than what he has presented.

    • Yeah, like the mining sector which funds the bulk of your revenue or imports of most of your essential commodities or drivers of your industry – oil for example, even the maize you might say is home grown requires fertilizer part of which is imported, farming equipment. livestock veterinary drugs-imported, hospital drugs nothing local, educate me if there is a local drug manufacturing company. So what % sector of the economy does not feel the full impact of the dollar – kachasu brewing? or now that we have given an incentive for Castle Lite beer production locally?- CHEERS beer is all that we know!!

    • You also have to realize that because the kwacha has depreciated alot of other things have affected. Even locally the buying power of the kwacha is not the same, it has a lower value now. The dollar hasn’t only affected the Good and Services we obtain from outside but also internal. You’d be surprised that a business that is entirely dependent on materials and services that are internal to the country are facing increased production costs and these are passed on to the consumer. The depreciation of the kwacha has a ripple effect.

Mazoka had the intangible “something” that you need, but not HH unfortunately. That’s why people say he is too egotistical – he will stubbornly remain in the top spot at the expense of UPND’s success. If he could step aside and be part of a team, there would be a diffrerent outlook for UPND – he could even be in government right now if he had less of an ego

    Fair enough, but ABC is giving what can be achieved given the current resource envelope. +10% is desirable, even more, but to target that growth, U must have the money to back it. That is currently not available.

    HH: All the pronouncements sound goodo n paper, but how will these power stations run without water?

    ABC mentioned that the plant to be commissioned in January will be run on coal and add about 100mega watts in addition to other plants leading to Z returning to a net power exporter as early as next year.

    As for a robust Pvt Sector, isn’t this a bedroom issue for HH & GBM? He wants EL to make them robust? Aren’t they the tycoons we have? Or is it riches on paper? Derivatives???

    HH: Zambia sh’d produce peanut butter & long Life milk so long as proper value addition strategies are put in place.

    Again, is it govt or the pvt sector to come up with those products? Govt can only offer support by facilitating arrivals through infrastructure (roads, airports, YES, and even Airlines), things which our small businesses cannot afford.

    HH: Government sh’d have diversified the economy away from copper to industries that produce import substitution.

    YES, that’s what govt was hoping to achieve by opening up the country through road access to make resources easily accessible such as arable land, water, low quantity but high export yielding gem stones etc.
