United Party for National Development (UPND) National Youth Spokesperson Gilbert Liswaniso has said the Patriotic Front (PF)’s Pro-poor approach to Zambians is now dead.

In a statement availed to Pan African Radio today, Liswaniso said it would not be prudent for any person to claim that the PF led Government is pro-poor because vulnerable children and other vulnerable sectors of society across the country have been neglected

Liswaniso said the UPND find it weird for Government to allow children to live, marry and populate on the street, adding that children living on the street are a time bomb.

Liswaniso observed that the opposition UPND have never heard President Edgar Lungu or the relevant ministry pronounce a serious intervention plan towards the welfare of children living on the street.

And Liswaniso said the money which will be spent on the operations of the police and other security wings during the 90 day life span of the invoked Article 31 could have gone to the welfare of children living on the street across the country to better their lives.

  1. You don’t want police operations. That is the only point I have got from this article. It does not concern this Liswaniso that even more Children will pour onto the streets after their parents fail to pay for school fees and some of them dying prematurely due to stress cause by the City Market inferno. It does concern the UPND that securing the safety of investments in this Country will sustain lives in Zambia. It does not make sense for UPND for the PF Government to ensure peace and stability. For UPND, it would mean failure on their part if this Country is protected. For UPND its better the money is just spent on consumption instead of Production. it is even evidenced by their condemnation of the construction of roads Country wide. …and yet they want to be govern this great Country!…

  2. There goes a mad party. The money will go towards rebuilding what you have bent and start up capital for the marketeer’s. Please don’t mock the Zambians you wicked, heartless party. It’s very irritating and cruel to say this AFTER BURNING PROPERTY FOR THE POOR. May God give you what you have given. Amen. I hope you will lose HAGAIN.

  3. Look how Upnd is confused and does understand nothing.
    Pf pro poor to Zambians is NOW dead. This party has never recognised something good from the pf government since Michael Sata. Now they are saying ” NOW DEAD” it means pro poor governance was there. You see. But they have never come out to appreciate.Let me tell you, you will die with your jealous like Lucifer who turned into satan an opposition paty ( upndumpers). While God is using the government to bring development you are busy criticising and talking about evil things. Your Hate human being is NOW in prison begging our beloved president ECL to intervene.

  4. I totally agree with you those that are doubting can just go to UNZA and CBU and check among students who are on bursaries. They will realise that pro-poor term is meant to hoodwink Zambians especially illiterates.

  6. But we have said it before mr UPNDonkey Liswaniso, that your sole objective as a Donkey party has been to divert our attention from important issues so that you can claim that the government has failed. Look at the amount of property you have destroyed, how much time and money we have spent in court all because underfive and his UPNDonkeys cannot accept the internationally confirmed democratic wishes of our people, how much time and money we are spending on security to secure the lives and livelihoods of our people including the very poor children you refer to, the 24,000 children of 4,000 marketeers who now have to go hungry because UPNDonkeys torched City market, the revenue lost, the tac which should have paid for schools and bursaries, the amount of effort we have to make to secure…

  7. ….. the 24,000 children of 4,000 marketeers who now have to go hungry because UPNDonkeys torched City market, the revenue lost, the tax which should have paid for schools and bursaries, the amount of effort we have to make to secure our beloved President from you Donkeys. The list is endless, and here is a Donkey shedding crocodile tears!

    May the Catholic bishops fail, may underfive remain in Mukobeko and continue to reap his personal armageddon forever and ever, in Jesus name we pray with thanks giving in our hearts, Amen!!
