International Trade Expert Trevor Simumba has charged that many Zambian professionals are the biggest cowards the country has.
Mr Simumba said Zambian professionals should be ashamed to have continued watching as politicians used public funds to buy votes and live a life of luxury.
“To all those asking me to help the Government I say what? Are you sure,when I started warning way back in 2012! Many of you said I was just too talkative. I was called all sorts and vilified publicly. Even my own family members fought me just because they were benefiting from the PF largesse. Now even with a contract, there is no money to pay suppliers who now are owed over K13 billion,” Mr Simumba wrote on his Facebook page.
“Kwacha is depreciating quick, donors withholding aid so by the time some of these people get paid, Kwacha would have lost another 20 to 30% in value. Now that you have messed up the economy, stolen beyond sanity you want me and others to come help fix the mess that you have created through selfishness and arrogance?”
He added, “Many so called Zambian professionals are the biggest cowards we have in this country. They should be ashamed to have continued watching as politicians used public funds to buy votes and live a life of luxury.”
“Never. We will meet you and all your minions at the ballot box in 2021 and I will personally campaign across the country to ensure you never ever have an opportunity again to steal and abuse public funds. Enough is enough.”
Mr Simumba said now is the time for the Zambian opposition to unite.
“It is time for all Zambian opposition to unite. Zambians are not fools or docile. We will act at the right time just like we did in 1991, 2001, and 2011.”
