HH sharing his 10 Point Plan

United Party for National Development (UPND) President Hakainde Hichilema has said that the Patriotic Front (PF) Government has been very costly for the Zambian people, wasting huge amounts of money that should have gone to areas such as education, healthcare and water and sanitation.

In a statement released to the media, the UPND leader accused the PF of being busy filling their own pockets at the expense of Zambians and increasing inequality, which undermines Zambia’s treasured peace and unity.

Below is the full statement

OFFICIAL STATEMENT

The Cost of the PF Government

The PF Government has been very costly for the Zambian people, wasting huge amounts of money that should have gone to areas such as education, healthcare and water and sanitation. Not only is the PF busy filling their own pockets at the expense of the majority, but they are also increasing inequality, which undermines our treasured peace and unity.

Corruption is perhaps the biggest obstacle to eradicating poverty that we face as a nation. Under PF we have paid way over the odds for construction projects contracted behind closed doors. The PF owes us an explanation as to why we are paying US$2million per kilometre of road, when in South Africa the same amount would pay for 5 kilometres. Any government serious about ending corruption must give the ACC full autonomy to investigate every government official, regardless of position or connections.

Under the PF, government has grown and grown in size, paid itself more and more, and travelled across the world as it pleases. While they have more money in their pockets, the majority of our people have less. The UPND will cut back on these expenditures and reduce the burden on our people.

Meanwhile, PF mismanagement has resulted in large amounts of waste, which are no better than throwing kwacha down the drain. For example, in 2012/2013 alone the amount of FRA maize wasted was estimated at 32%, which equates to some US$450million. There is no excuse for such incompetence.

If you look at how much PF has cost us to date you will see that the cost of another five years will be too much to bear. If we re-elect President Lungu then expect mealie meal prices to rise to K286, expect electricity tariffs to go up to K1.13 ngwee per kilowatt-hour, expect fertiliser to double in price again to K600 and expect thousands more job losses.

It is time for change.

UPND President

    • And they have seen that the sinking boat under Lungu and his thieving PF is not taking Zambia forward!

      Did you really think they would accept and agree that Lungu stealing K 23 MILLION of Zambians money is OK?

      Kudos to these people that have taken the right path and disowned their own party because they stood up for what is right and not joining Lungu and his thieving, corrupt and incompetent panga gang!

  3. Look who’s talking. The money this plunderer (HH) stole from this country through wanton privatization could have built 45 secondary schools, 60 clinics and bought 100 tipper trucks for use in the construction of roads. So, he should just shut up! He has no economic plan for this country. If he has, I guess it’s privatization of the the few companies that survived his ruthless privatization.

    • The Zambia Privatisation Agency is an autonomous agency of the Governmentof the Republic of Zambia, established in 1992 through the PrivatisationAct No.21 (1992). Its function is to plan, implement and control the privatisationof state owned enterprises in Zambia, in cooperation with the government,by selling them off to those who are more competent to run them and whohave the required capital to do so.

      The method used for offering shares depends on the type ofcompany for sale. For example, smaller companies to be sold as a singleentity will go under public tender, while larger complex organisationsmay be publicly floated. Other options include the Management Buy Out system(MBO), which gives option of sale to management staff who may or may notwork with other partners to secure…

  6. What do you expect? The country is at the mercy of a cruel thief. He graduated from stealing clients money to directly dipping his fingers into state coffers. There are reports he is rich in record time. This is almost funny, of course it goes without saying, you can’t expect a dishonest person to safe guard your money. Lungu automatically goes for money the way a rat goes for cheese or a duck takes to water. They need no encouragement. It’s a reflex action as in kleptomania. I hope and trust the voters will get rid of garbage from state house.

  7. In 5 years of PF have borrowed $10 billion another 5 years we will owe $20 billion.

    In one year lungu has doubled his account to $2.3 million another 5 years he will have accumulated $72 million as a personal fortune.

    We can not let that sort of plunder happen before our very eyes…..

  8. The PF rule has been the most corrupt and wasteful govt since independence in 1964. The Lungu reign has been the worst looting period. Right now Lungu and his illegal Ministers are busy abusing state resources and stealing money from the National Treasury to enrich themselves and finance PF campaigns. Meantime Concourt is turning a blind eye to this blatant looting of public funds. It seems ECZ and Concourt are compromised institutions serving the interests of the Ruling PF Party instead of public interest and stakeholder.We must stop this abuse and looting by voting for HH & his UPND Team. Lungu and his PF thieves and looters must be held to account without fail. Forward with HH and UPND Team.

  9. Yes it’s costly to do projects you thought all these projects comes with no cost. Look at the road leading to your house and every where you go its projects. But when you were selling companies what benefits did we have apart from bad roads and unemployment. Zambians wake up PF is doing well and it’s again and again ECL for Zambia.

  14. HH kwena chipuba guys. No direction whatsoever, clueless and NOT fit to be leader of a club.
    ECL’S term in office as President has shamed these crooks. When hear told you that he was far ahead, you chose to ignore him but any patriotic and genuine Zambian has appreciated his leadership hence a resounding victory for ECL and PF.

  15. Zambians see what is real on the ground !!! The PF said more money in your pocket but that is not what is real… just lies. We have no money in our pockets these days except for those in top PF positions. They are useing Chinese to do all government contracts; roads,schools,etc to do work so they can get money back in their pockets from all these corrupt Chinese at the expense of Zambian contractors. Why are we supporting these Chinese at the expense of Zambians? We really need to stop all these Chinese coming in otherwise they will take ova our great zambia like cocoroches. All government work is being done at three times the normal price so… they PF line thier pockets !!!
    It’s time for change of governmen and if they don’t perform in 5 years we remove them. We can’t afford to…

  17. Is HH just politicking or is serious? The other day he was promising civil servants good salaries. Now the civil servant is among the most highly paid in Zambia. In fact the increment of civil servant salaries was condemned by the opposition citing it as drain on national coffers. Zambian roads had never been maintained for more than 40 years and to correct the situation you need a lot of money. As for hospitals HH must just check the amount of medicine is being given to BP, Diebetes, TB etc patients. This add to pilfering of the stuff. Subsidies are abused.

  18. Only UPND and its cadres are seeing corruption and have no money in their pockets, waiting for HH to come and put money in their pockets, laze bum *****s. Don’t you know where to report corrupt people? You will wait until you get old since ECL is not ready to relinquish the presidential chair this time soon.
