The opposition United Progressive Party (UPP) has warned that it will go to court to block the impending sale of state owned companies.
UPP President Savior Chishimba said the party’s will go to court to stop the impending sale of ZESCO, ZAMTEL, INDENI Oil Refinery, TAZAMA, ZSIC, ZNBS, & Zambia Railways.
Dr Chishimba said the announcement by the PF Government that there will be a review of state owned enterprises is actually a pre-sale notification of these national assets.
“UPP is preparing to engage a team of lawyers which will help us to stop the sale of these public assets. We shall fight this battle up to the Supreme Court,” Dr Chishimba said.
He added, “In all the historic sales of national assets it’s the people of Zambia who have been losers. Politicians and businessmen are the ones who power their pockets by conniving with buyers.”
“ZESCO, ZAMTEL, INDENI OIL Refinery, TAZAMA, ZSIC, ZNBS, & Zambia Railways shall not be sold! We shall fight for the people and workers in these corporations to the end.”
