UPND Government is Governing without a plan to develop the country

Share

Patriotic Front (PF) National Chairperson for Information and Publicity Raphael Nakacinda has said the people of Zambia must urgently retire the UPND Government because it was governing without a plan to develop the country.

Mr. Nakacinda said things in Zambia have worsened since the UPND formed the New Dawn Government after the 2021 General Elections.

The outspoken PF official said the UPND Government was currently impoverishing Zambians as evidenced by the high cost of living fueled by increased prices of fuel, mealie meal and electricity.

Mr. Nakacinda repeated that the UPND was a bunch of liars that deceived Zambians with deceitful campaigns prior to the 2021 polls.

He warned that President Hakainde Hichilema and his New Dawn Government were fixing Zambians as opposed to their promise of fixing the economy.

Mr. Nakacinda said by now Zambians must be regretting voting for the UPND at the expense of the PF.

“The UPND in summary looks like they have come indeed to fix the Zambian people, move them from at least a survival mode to poverty. What the UPND and Mr. Hakainde Hichilema will achieve at the end of their tenure is to impoverish the Zambian people in all facets including people losing their property especially those that attempted businesses of their own other than depending on jobs. Like the people are saying the UPND are playing with people’s lives. Like drivers are complaining how you can plan when fuel prices keep on being increased monthly,” Mr. Nakacinda said.

“As a politician when people in government fail the solution is to rest them because they were not prepared to govern. Genuine people say that PF performed. They appreciate the road projects we did which the UPND have now been stopped and cancelled by the UPND. Look at the state of roads, Independence Avenue is like a war zone; go to Chibuluma Road it is like a war zone. Go to Ndola and other towns of the Copperbelt the roads are pathetic. Worse still go rural areas of this country where we were undertaking roads they abandoned and cancelled those road projects. I know Mr. Milupi (Minister of Infrastructure) has been lying on road projects. UPND are known to be liars. Ask ba Milupi why the UPND cancelled and stopped the road projects started by the PF,” Mr. Nakacinda said.

He vowed that the PF will continue speaking for the people of Zambia as they are being oppressed by the UPND Government.

“As Patriotic Front we have a duty to round the country and to speak for the poor people of Zambia. You know as PF our slogan is more money in people’s pockets and also power to the people. We are working for ordinary Zambians. That is why UPND used to laugh at us when we were taking tarred roads to townships saying that we were wasting our time and resources. We want to alleviate the lives of the poor people of Zambia. That is our responsibility and commitment. For now our job is to provide checks and balances to the government and to speak for the poor. Obviously the people of Zambia have already regretted voting for these people because they did not have a plan for them,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mr. Nakacinda said he believes Zambians can run struggling mining companies on the Copperbelt.

“KCM, can give you the money you are looking for from the IMF, but we are always looking up to the whites. We brought that [Indian investor], when Vedanta came to that mine he didn’t have problems paying the suppliers. He started actually subcontracting, laundering the works that are supposed to be done because these are traders. The next thing was that the workforce for KCM was reduced to just above 4,000 because most of the people were pruned, retrenched or indeed surrendered to those companies that were subcontracted to provide a service to KCM,” he said.
