UPND SG rubbishes the Headline that the Party did not sign a social contract to employ the youths

Share

UPND Secretary General Batuke Imenda has refuted a headline in a named tabloid attributed to him saying the UPND did not sign a social contract to employ the youths when it forms Government.

Mr. Imenda says the facts in the story are contrary to what he had said when he was called for an interview by a journalist from the tabloid.

He has called on media houses to be factual and report what was said by the interviewee rather than mislead the nation to catch the reader’s eye.

Speaking during a media briefing in Lusaka today, Mr. Imenda said the headline carried by the tabloid is damaging and malicious, adding that he clearly mentioned that Government agreed to employ teachers and health workers, with youths dominating the number
.
He said he will engage his lawyers to seek guidance on which route to take on the matter.

Meanwhile, UPND Deputy National Chairperson Andrew Banda has cautioned a named private Television station to be professional and add background to a story for people to understand critical stories.

Mr. Banda was reacting to a story carried by the TV station, which quoted Infrastructure and Urban Development Minister Charles Milupi saying the Government will not prioritize the Eastern Province road network because it is not economically viable.

He said Mr. Milupi clearly said the Government wants to tar all roads in the country, but top on the list are those that are of economic importance.

  1. PF is full of fake things, they are trying to create a wedge in the UPND. No wonder their fake opinion polls did not work for the August 12 elections

  2. This SG does not listen to himself when he is speaking.

    The SG spoke the truth. How can a normal TV station publish something false immediately after the interview. Is he afraid of what he said during the interview.

  4. Bamo bene!
    EVIDENCE WILL BE PRODUCED.
    THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT GETTING JOBS FOR THE YOUTHS IS WHAT WILL PROVE MOST PROBLEMATIC.
    WE NEED TO UNDO THE PRIVATIZATION OF THE 1990s!

  5. All Zambians who voted for you signed a contract with you UPND that you get them employed and reduce fuel prices and other essentials, if didn’t promise them all those promises they wouldn’t have voted for you.
    Just go to work and do what people are expecting from you.

  6. UPND is on course, unlike PF where there are boxing matches every where – Antony vs Munir, first bout, second bout Nakachinda vs Amos, Third round PF grass roots vs Lubinda, Mwamba E. Kambwili, Bowman, Kampyongo, Nakachinda. The grass roots have spoken they don’t want these leaders near the PF

  7. They are now threatening the media, which they were against when in opposition. GLOAT promised fake media freedom during is maiden speech at Kasama House, gripped by excitement of course.
