Copperbelt Minister Mwenya Musenge, has refuted allegations that the Patriotic Front (PF) is using government resources for its campaigns as untrue and unfounded.
ZANIS reports that Mr Musenge says Cabinet Ministers are in offices because the amended Constitution stipulates that they remain in office.
He stated that President Edgar Lungu is strict when it comes to the use of public resources and that he would not allow any minister to misuse government resources.
“That is why when you look at our campaigns, we are not spending like we were spending during the last elections in 2011. This time around the money we are using is coming from different well-wishers who are helping us with the campaigns,” he said.
He said as leaders entrusted with the resources of the nation, ministers are God-fearing people who would not go to an extent of abusing the resources for their own benefit.
Mr Musenge, who is also Chimwemwe Constituency aspiring candidate for the PF, says the party has brought a lot of development in the country and it is for this reason that the party is pointing at what it has achieved from the time it took over power in 2011.
He has stated the PF achievements are the basis on which the people of Zambia should give President Lungu a second mandate to continue with the developmental projects that are on-going.
Mr Musenge further stated that on the Copperbelt province it is a known fact that President Lungu is popular as evidenced by the number of developmental projects that have been undertaken across in the region and the country at large.
