The opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) says President Lungu is bound to fail if he continues to be surrounded by incompetent people.

UPND Chairman for Rural Reconstruction and Development Moono Mapani says President Lungu should realize that most of the things that are not working out for him are as a result of him being surrounded by people who are not adding value to the governance system of the nation.

Mr. Mapani says it is very clear that the people President Lungu opted to work with are bent on seeing him fail.

And Mr. Mapani says President Lungu should not blame the opposition that they are scaring investors by their statements on the state of country’s economy, stating that it is a known fact that Zambia’s economy is not doing well.

He states that the Head of State has an obligation to lure investors to invest in the country even during this trying moment.
Mr. Mapani adds that the blame game will not work for him as most people are expecting to see results.

Meanwhile, UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema says it is an insult for President Edgar Lungu to tell retrenched miners to venture into farming.

Mr. Hichilema has wondered how the former miners would go into agriculture when they have no knowledge about farming.
He says this only shows that the PF government does not care about the welfare of the miners.

Mr Hichilema has also observed that the benefits the miners are being given are not enough considering the high cost of leaving in the country.

  1. Is it just my sight or is this man slowly beginning to look like the late Anderson Mazoka.That aside Lungu has already failed and he is only playing for time.Their nervousness is open for any discerning person to see.A confident person cannot preoccupy himself with winning elections like Lungu,Chama,Kambwili and Mumbi.They should have preoccupied themselves with delivering.It is like a foolish pupil always trying to convince others that he will pass when he is not studying.

  2. Mr. Mapani says President Lungu should not blame the opposition that they are scaring investors by their statements on the state of country’s economy, stating that it is a known fact that Zambia’s economy is not doing well. so you have admited that is what your president said in the UK,HH you should be ashamed to talk about the mines you know what you did and today your friend has given them an alternative on how to survive.and for your own information it is not now that we have known how to do farming we are subsistence farmers we learnt everything at childwood it is not only minning we are big time farmers go to mufulira ndola there are farming blocks what are you saying?

  3. Juba Jansomo stop using our Kaonde names no one from northwestern supports Lungu and his tribal cousins.Coming to the main point please leave HH out of the mine.HH never sold a single Mine on the Copperbelt his firm only evaluated the mines it was Kafupi(chiluaba nad bashikulu(RIP)Ba sata Katongo cherles who sold the mines.By the way the mines were already closed at the time they were sold.There was massive poverty on the copperbelt.So stop the lies.Lekeni Umuntu ateke (HH) pantu Ifintu(lungu) ta filibwino.Twachula pafula.

  8. @JUBA JANSOMO. Your grandfather is into farming but is not educated. He is using what the miners might not have; it is called indigenous knowledge-no education is required. Farming is for people who are serious and hard working.

  9. HH is bruised from his London outbursts. He wants to divert people’s attention by condemning measures that will work in the long-term. As usual he offers no alternatives

  10. But this under five HH, so he is telling us if there are no mines or miners have been laid off then he will let miners die because they cannot do anything apart from mining? No marketeering no? No trading no? No farming no? No taxi operator no? No running a bar no? No keeping tu ma chicken no? No keeping ka cow like underfive himself even? Not even street vending no? Honestly HH, so you want miners and their families to die because they have to be miners and nothing else? And you seriously want their votes?
    It seems to me that it is HH who is insulting the miners’ intelligence and ability to survive.
    I repeat once more for UPMD cadres, mr HH does not know politics, and so his propensity to shoot himself in the foot at critical moments.
