  4. Some people think talking translate into national development, In your 2023 budget there is nothing for infrastructure development so what development are you talking about! Zambia let’s just go back to Pf, looking at the good things they did surely they had a passion and zeal to develop this country, Iam talking about the good things Pf government did. Never again vote for people that are clueless and irresponsible.
