The FDD has cautioned students at the University of Zambia and the Copperbelt University against voting for the PF because they will withdraw their meal allowances once they have a fresh mandate.
Commenting on government’s U-turn on the withdraw of meal allowances for students at the two universities FDD Spokesperson Antonio Mwanza said the PF were trying to hoodwink students so that they can vote for them and later withdraw the allowance when voted for.
He said it is up to the students to either choose to be lied to or vote the PF out of office so that they put a government that has their interests at heart.
He said it is desperation which has made the PF government to reinstate the allowances for the students after realising that their decision would cost them votes on 11th August.
And Mr Mwanza said the policy inconsistency of the PF government was worrying stakeholders in the country.
Mr Mwanza explained that it was difficult to plan in the PF government as they have continued to shift from one policy to another something he said was contributing to the high cost of living being experienced in the country
