The opposition People’s Alliance for Change has charged that the ruling PF has been using funds from the Social Cash Transfer to win by elections.
PAC President Andyford Banda said the PF’s perceived popularity has been fueled by the use of cash from the Social Cash Transfer scheme.
“PF has been winning by elections just as much as the government has expanded SCT to all the districts which actually doesn’t exist. Sooner or later, our dear humble leader will find out how induced these election wins have been just as he discovered on SCT,” Mr Banda warned.
Mr. Banda stated that the news of the theft of Social Cash Transfers is an embarrassment to all Zambians.
“The only bad thing about these headlines is that they make us look like beggars and that since aid has been cut we will suffer. Unfortunately, our people got us here.”
He said Zambia should have started working swiftly towards self sustainability.
“If we want to be self sustained we have to work towards self sustainability. We can’t just be doing nothing about it expect to achieve self sustainability. By the way it won’t happen overnight it’s a process. Yes it’s frustrating that we have to find ourselves in such a mess.”
