We have noted with concern the continued mistreatment of our hardworking and passionate Civil Servants by the PF Government under the leadership of HE President Edgar C Lungu.
15th of every month has been the traditional pay date for our under-appreciated and over stretched Civil servants in Zambia and the late HE Michael C Sata ensured that civil servants get paid salaries was at least 17th of every month.
With the ever escalating prices on all household goods, daily job losses in our dwindling PF economy, it is mind baffling to imagine that President Lungu can even allow our Civil Servants to work for 30 days but get paid on the 45th day every month. This is criminal and murderous behavior by our State President shows lack of care for the Zambian families.He can afford to take holidays, fly around the world with 256 people to USA, buy free tickets for Soccer fans at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium but fail to pay his own employees on time.
The continued mismanagement of our Economy by the PF Government is a clear testimony that they have failed and this leadership is Visionless.
Whilst President Lungu is failing to pay his employees on time, he has created 5 new Ministries and this should each be costing the Treasury over K200 000 every month.
President Edgar Lungu wasted Taxpayers money by moving State House to Kitwe for political rallies and insulting Labour Unions and issuing fake threats to Mopani Copper Mines. MCM Owners have however embarrassingly showed State House who is the real boss in the Mines by proceeding to fire 4000 employees.
Our humble president HE Edgar Lungu and his leadership do not understand poverty because they get everything for free no wonder they are punishing even our abused Civil Servants like the men in uniform. They see it fit to command unpaid men in uniform around Zambia to beat up innocent UPND cadres whilst they enjoy luxuries in Lusaka.
We therefore urge you the Zambians to get your NRCs and Voters cards so that you can choose better leadership in 2016
