Ikelenge MMD MP Elijah Muchima has accused the PF government of trying to hoodwink people in his constituency into voting for them even after failing to deliver on their promises in the last five years.
Speaking in an interview Honourable Muchima said PF have failed to deliver development in his constituency but that have now taken heaped road construction equipment because they have realised that this is an election year and think that they can hoodwink the people in his constituency.
He said he has time and again called for the construction of the main road which connects the area to Mwinulunga as it becomes impassable during rainy season but the PF government has ignored his pleas.
He said compared to the previous government of MMD, the PF government has done literally nothing apart from putting up foundations in his constituency.
“Compared to what MMD under Mwanawasa did in my constituency before his second term, PF has done literally nothing apart from putting up foundations. Our priority in my Constituency is the road but what do they do? They wait until during election that’s when they go and heap equipment, during rainy season and it rains heavily even if they go to launch they want to hoodwink the people,” he said.
He added that people are not foolish and understand that the launch is meant to hoodwink them into voting for them.
“People are not foolish and understand, all this five years were have they been? We have simple things like bridges are being washed away, cassava fields are being washed away by the rains and school roofs are being blown away day in and day out and the government is unable to attend to those challenges,” he said.
Mr Muchima further bemoaned the lack of materials and teachers in schools in the constituency saying there is a serious shortage of teachers due to erratic distribution of teachers in his area.
He said even the introduction of computers in schools is ill timed as almost all the schools have no power of any kind hence making it impossible for anybody to teach computer classes.
