11 MONTHS OF MOTIVATIONAL SPEECHES AND BLAME-GAMES.
You can use lies and propaganda to win elections, but you can’t use lies and propaganda to govern people. 11 months into office, UPND regime still does not have a plan.
One of the main reasons why Zambians voted for UPND on 12th August 2021 is because of high cost of living which prevailed at that time and which the UPND promised to reduce. However, the cost of living is now higher than it was on 12th August 2021.
Recently, Finance Minister, Situmbeko Musokotwane, said that there is nothing UPND Government can do to bring down the prices of fuel:
FEW QUESTIONS TO HON. MUSOKOTWANE:
1) What happened to the middlemen you said you will remove from the fuel procurement and supply chain?
2) What happened to the corruption and theft of K3 or k5 per litre of fuel you repeatedly accused the former regime? Does it mean UPND is also stealing k10 per litre since you have increased the price of petrol from k17 to 26.75?
3) What happened to the famous formula and calculations that HH was braggingly posting on his Facebook Page? Did HH lose the spreadsheet or calculator or it was a PUNKA story?
It is unacceptable for UPND to continue subjecting Zambians to high cost of living when they promised the opposite. Hon. Steven Katuka is right when he says UPND need to pull up their socks because things on the ground are not okay.
UPND Government has no plan, thus things will only get worse, the price of fuel, the cost of doing business and the cost of living will worsen, we just have to prepare for more suffering.
Those who are saying that the hike in cost of living is global, let us also talk about salary comparisons. See screen shot below:
