Economy Now Government says they will fund recruitment of teachers, health workers...

Government has clarified that the ongoing recruitment of education and health workers will be funded by the treasury and not dependent on the outcome of the International Monetary Fund negotiations.

Southern Province Minister Cornelius Mweetwa says Government has committed itself to finance the recruitment of the new education and health staff pointing out that this will be implemented soon once the formalities are completed.

And the Minister has also commended the Catholic Church for their continued dedication in promoting social economic development in the education and health sector.

  1. Possible because of economic prudence and savings from PF stealing and payments to their cader thugs…………

    The wage bill alone for the PF thugs without the stealing of the gang , ran into the millions every month………….

  2. We all saw the PF cader thugs flashing thousands of dollars ……….

    Others with heaps upon heaps of kwacha…………

    All money meant for national development………….

  3. Those videos of PF cader thugs flashing heaps of $s and kwacha were the tip of the iceberg………….

    Behind the cameras , lungu was facilitating and enabling looting on an industrial scale…………

  4. I’m more interested in where the money has come from ?. I thought the treasury was empty.

    • The treasury becomes empty when excusing upnd from PF failures. When effecting UPND plans it is abracadabra and the money appears.
