HH WILL TRY TO ATTRIBUTE INEPTITUDE TO MANAGE ECONOMY ON UKRAINE CONFLICT … Let him renegotiate IMF deal to cushion suffering – Kabimba
HH will try to attribute his ineptitude and failure to manage the economy to the conflict in Ukraine, says Economic Fighters (EF) leader Wynter Kabimba.
And Kabimba has urged the UPND administration to re-engage the IMF to shelve the agreement for now, as nobody anticipated the problems occasioned by the Ukraine crisis, saying the aim should be to reinstate subsidies to cushion the sufferings brought about by the war.

“No doubt about that, because there was a statement when the government revised the pump price of fuel, the recent revision they attributed it was to the Russia-Ukraine conflict which purely was a scapegoat because we were then just about five days into the conflict. So there is no way that a five day conflict would have adversely affected the pump price of fuel,” Kabimba said. “One would have thought that fuel which is in the country was procured way before this conflict broke out. So I can see people hiding under the guise of the conflict to cover up their ineptitude to govern a country or to further increase the pump price of fuel.
