    This follows unprecedented rise in demand for cash country-wide,……….But the Head of State said the mechanism will serve the country from having its cash robbed.
    President Hichilema also said the mechanism will  further help trace where money is going to avoid illicit money flows that are being reported by the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC)…..”

  5. I hope that the proceedings have been properly rehearsed, it’ll be embarrassing to witness the fidgeting that we saw during the swearing-in ceremony. What role will the unofficial bodyguard play? I hope it’ll be the beginning of serious business. We are tired of the under 5 antics. Will there be defiance of covid-19 guidelines by red cadres? Or will we be subjected to change that isn’t change at all?
