The UPND Vice President Canisius Banda says Zambians are going through the worst times of their lives because of the bad governance of the PF.
Dr Banda charged that life is now so expensive that people are being forced to eat tomato sauce as relish adding that even the same tomato has become unaffordable to some people in the country.
He said the living standards for people in the country has deteriorated under the PF government hence the need to kick them out of power in the next elections.
Dr Banda said people are struggling to survive because of the continued hike in food prices and that the hikes in mealie-meal and other commodities is due to the bad governance of the current administration who don’t seem to know what they are doing.
“People are failing to buy even tomato so that they can make “joncho” tomato sauce for their meals because it has become so expensive, as UPND went people eat nshima with their choice of relish not with tomato sauce. We are now buying 1 small tomato at K2 when we were buying 6 big tomatoes from the same amount.
“People are dying from preventable diseases such as the recent cases of cholera because of lack of clean drinking water and other sanitary conditions, as UPND we want to stop all these challenges. We want people to have three meals in a day, we want people to have proper toilets, we want a better life for Zambians,” he said
And Dr Banda said the salary increments for civil servants is an insult to government workers and that God will punish President Lungu for mocking government workers.
“You can’t give a person K200 as salary increment that is an insult to your workers. Mr Lungu you should not be doing such things God will punish you for mocking civil servants with a mockery of a salary increment,” he said.
Dr Banda said this when he featured on the Platform radio program on Comet radio.
