Rebuilding Zambia’s Economy will take some time, HH tells the nation in New Year Eve’s Message

Headlines Rebuilding Zambia's Economy will take some time, HH tells the nation in...

President Hakainde Hichilema has said that the collective effort to rebuild the country and turn it into a multi-model of success for future generations will take some time.

In his New Year’s message to the nation, President Hichilema said that the government is working to root out corruption and bring about macroeconomic stability and an inclusive environment for all.

The President said that there is a need to maintain peace, stability, and the mantra of One Zambia One Nation because it is the foundation of the country’s democracy.

The Head of State has further called for hard work to be a way of life and a source of the country’s pride and future prosperity.

President Hichilema further said that government will ensure citizens get better public services and enhanced transparency and that the anticipated International Monetary Fund (IMF) agreement will provide much-needed relief and boost confidence in the market and catalyze economic recovery.

The President added that the IMF agreement will benefit the citizens both socially and economically.

President Hichilema also called on citizens to continue adhering to public health guidelines on the prevention of Covid-19, get vaccinated, and get the booster doses that have been introduced.

  1. Of course it will. Rebuilding the economy is not like creating districts out of the blue. There are many who don’t understand how that contributed to the public debt pile.

  9. Yes HH is 1000% right. Let’s remember PF said “more money in your pockets in 90days” yet they took 10yrs to bring Zambia’s economy to it knees.

  11. How many times will Zambians be told to sacrifice? We have already been there and can therefore not spend our entire journey on earth sacarificing. Tell us something better than sacrificing.

    PS says youth funds were incompetently handled

    GOVERNMENT will not be able to recover some monies it gave youths through loans because most recipients failed to make good use of the funds.
    The latest Auditor General’s report revealed that 12,836 youth groups got K88.9 million between 2012 and last year but only K5.9 million had been paid back, leaving a balance of K82.9 million.
    In another case, 2,750 small and medium enterprises (SMEs) obtained K52 million but only K2.8 million has been recovered, with K49.2 million still outstanding.
    Ministry of Youth, Sport and Arts Permanent Secretary Kangwa Chileshe says most beneficiaries of the various empowerment schemes did not have capacity to run the businesses or manage the money they were given, hence the…

  18. Yes mr president, it will take time. But it would help if we could see just a tiny bit of evidence after the four months you have been in power. I see NOTHING. You say you are fighting corruption – the police is getting their bribes just like before; I had to fork out K200 in order to get a new driving license otherwise it would go to the bottom of the pile. What has changed? NOTHING!

  21. Of course rebuilding Zambia’s economy is bound to take some time, especially when you have a government that allows a few foreign mining companies to get away without paying mineral royalty taxes whilst majority poor Zambians are over-taxed. No government worth the name does that. Only a government that collects kick-backs from foreign mining firms takes pleasure in seeing its own people suffer forgetting it was elected to serve its own people.

  22. Mr President this is well noted, we are where we are now because of PF with reckless borrowing. They borrowed and share with their carders with impunity. Unfortunetly, these people don’t have any sense of shame, they boast about infrastructure like the money was coming their pockets or they finished paying for Kaloba they borrowed. Further, they didn’t even had the plans to repay kaloba that the reason they defaulted. They left us tax payers in big trouble, our only hope is you bally. Fikontolole! #Umulandutaubola

  24. If you care to know IMF doesn’t improve people’s lives.
    Zambians are not looking for the long term effort to rebuild the country and turn it into a multi-model of success for future generations – this is just another promise and it is really long term. You may not manage that in 4 years. Zambians are looking for your fulfillment of your promises. Imaginre you preaching that in 2025 – 26. It’s gonna look urgly.
    Pull up your socks.
    IMF kuwayawayafye.

  25. @ deja vu dnt bring tribe here you sound like anti tonga and yet we have over 70 tribes in this country becareful mayn no tribe is superior to the other

  26. During your watch, it will never happen. Your focus is not to make Zambia better than the previous Govt left it. Your dream is all about creating enabling environment for capitalists. Not a solution for Zambia.

  27. If you ain’t a capitalist become one..the good thing is you can choose to be a wise capitalist or useless one.

  28. We have to understand that rebuilding the economy is not a one man show but collective efforts and not achieved in one year. The message is most welcome. and together we can get this country to another level.

  29. We have been in this route before…I don’t think anything positive will come out…it’s a shame to punish your own people yet giving mining firms tax holiday…. None sense

  30. Most Zambians have something to believe and hold to in HH and UPND, others have pain of PF loss and bitterness never to be voted in again.

  31. All of you supporting this nonsense tell me one government which came into power and then said they took over a strong economy and they wont have much to do to steady the ship. All politicians have their own lies to feed with what they find in government.We can move out of Zambia and look at other republics in this quest.
