Antonio Mwanza spells hard times ahead for Zambians
…as IMF conditionalities kick in

28.09.22

Antonio Mwanza, the PF Media Director has warned ordinary Zambians who are in the majority to brace for further poverty and hunger as soon as International Monetary Fund (IMF) conditionalities imposed on Zambia.

Mr Mwanza said if Zambians think they are suffering today, things will get worse once fuel prices rise further and food prices too, which unfortunately wont affect the UPND senior government officials and President Hakainde Hichilema whom he calls by his other first name “Sammy”.

Mr Mwanza said, “unga uzadula (food prices will increase) fuel will also increase and so will electricity and bus fares that have already jumped from K10 per trip ten months ago to K20.”
He was speaking in a LMR interview with Wiseman Zulu, a programme that attracted the ire of the public that called in droves to complain about how poor and hungry the have become since President “Sammy” assumed office.

Mr Mwanza said Mr Hichilema over promised in a despeate bid to win the presidency, consequently he will feel the wrath of the Zambians in about three and a half years when his term ends.
He said the UPND was arrogant and indifferent to the suffering of the ordinary people because cabinet ministers earn K109, 000 per month and additional K27,000 housing allowance while ordinary Zambians in the public service earn K4000.

“Things are worse for old people, the sick, the retirees and orphans, 54,000 of whom have been dropped off the list of the Fertiliser in put support programme (FISP) by President Sammy Hichilema.
“These poor people earn only K400 per month from the social cash transfer, yet they are expected to buy themselves a fertiliser bag costing above K1000.

Mr Mwanza said if Zambians knew what kind of person Mr Hichilema is and what he brings to national politics, they would have not voted for him lasty year but as “smooth criminal” Mr Hichilema got himself elected.

Fuel prices currently at K21 and K23 are expected to rise to as much as K5 in less than one week once Mr Hichilema brings back the taxes the previous administration of President Edgar Lungu scrapped to keep prices low. Mr Mwanza also wondred why President Sammy has not given students the meal allowances he promised them in order to win their vote. He lied to university students said Mr Mwanza.
When prices of fuel increase in Zambia, everything else follows.

  1. Yes, hard times because of mismanagement by Koswe Mumpoto!
    This is what Kaloba feels like when the time to pay comes.
    Senseless borrowing is dangerous!
    PF people who created the mess must be the last to open their stinking mouths shifting their mistake on those who are trying hard to correct the PF mess!
    It has to get tough before it gets better!
    Only the lazy ones will die!

  2. Had the useless PF government managed the economy well there should have been no need to secure a loan from IMF. The PF government what they knew better was how to steal and get corrupt dirty deals. During the PF reign it was easy for crooks and the corrupt to get to the president and those who were in power because corruption, very few people including civil servants acted professionally and prudently.

    Former president Edgar Chagwa Lungu from the beginning is a person who had bad record of being an alcoholic, unfaithfulness and stealing his clients’ money.

    The economy and rule of law collapsed under the PF regime. Acquiring properties and stealing from the government became a norm and many people without morals even displayed huge sums of money in public. The police was paralysed and became toothless. The suffering or any hardships Antonio Mwanza is talking about was created and started during the reign of a drunkard and corrupt president. The UPND government is trying hard to fix the rot and filthy that PF created. It is only a senseless and shallow thinking person like Antonio Mwanza can hallucinate and talk nonsense about the IMF loan.

  3. The mess PF created will need self sacrifice and hard work from us Zambians. But the good news is that NEVER will thugs rule this country ever. You are just a John so lye ubwali you. Muselela kwakaba. No matter how you regroup Zambians now know the type of leadership they want. Not just drunkards having monkeys field days with public resources. No politics here truth be told…

  4. When Ruto came to power in Kenya, the first thing he did in his presidency was to appoint 4 judges and to remove subsidy on fuel. HH should have actually done the same, but has been too slow! If you delay harsh treatment on an erring child, you are likely going to face worse consequences!

  5. ANTONIO MWANZA DEVIL, JUST BY APPEARANCE YOU ARE A DEVIL. YOU, DEVIL MWANZA, ASK GOD TO GIVE YOU SHAME IN YOUR BRAIN. YOU WANTED TO KILL HICHILEMA IN CELLS WHEN YOU WERE ACCUSING HIM OF HAVING STOLEN A FARM AND THIS MOVE WAS HEADED BY NAWAKWI. HH HAS FULFILLED ALL HIS PROMISES THOUGH THEY CANNOT BE FULLY COMPLETED BECAUSE OF THE HUGE CREDIT YOU AS PF CREATED AND HAS GOT TO BE PAID BACK BY UPND GOVERNMENT. MINISTERS’ SALARIES WERE INCREASED BY YOU, MWANZA AS PF. PLEASE, UPND MINISTERS AND STRUCTURES TELL ZAMBIANS AS TO WHY WE ARE GOING THROUGH THESE HARDSHIPS AND WHO BROUGHT THEM AND EXPLAIN THE GOODNESS OF HAVING IMF UNLIKE WHAT PF DEVILS ARE CHEATING ZAMBIANS.

  6. IMF bailout is like swimming across a river. We, we know how to swim unlike Antonio Mwanza and other PF dancing queens who do not know how to swim because they only know how to flush ill-gotten money only and this is want they call politics.
