Stop the blame game and fix the problems, M’membe advises HH

By Rhoda Nthara(The Mast)

YOU are now heading to three years in government so stop the blame game, Socialist Party leader Fred M’membe has advised President Hakainde Hichilema.

He says President Hichilema is not God, “so every human being is fallible. Just admit your failures and seek help”.

“It has now become a tradition for Mr Hakainde Hichilema and the UPND to pass blame on Mr Edgar Lungu and the PF for their economic policy inertia without being introspective,” Dr M’membe said.

He noted that President Hichilema’s core team also served in the PF government.

“Who are the key economic managers in any government, who are key advisors to the President on economic matters? It is the Central Bank governor who is responsible
for monetary policy and the Minister of Finance who is in charge of the fiscal policy, including being custodian of budget formulation and execution,” Dr M’membe said. “Now let’s look back. Who was the substantive Central Bank governor during Edgar Lungu’s rule? It was Dr Denny Kalyalya who was only removed 11 months before the August 2021 elections. So we can agree that substantively Mr Lungu’s monetary policy was anchored on Dr Kalyalya. So when you say PF left high inflation, then it should point to the office holder. Who is the current Central Bank governor? Same person. In addition, even the deputy served under Mr Lungu and is still there. So introspect if you want to blame Mr Lungu and PF who left the kwacha at K15.89 per dollar to now K27.”

He then moves to Minister of Finance.

“In 2016, after PF won the election, what was Zambia’s external debt balance? Approximately $7 billion (I stand to be corrected). Who became the finance minister post-2016 elections? Mr Felix Mutati. How much debt did he contract? He can answer for himself! It is estimated that by the time he left, it was around $11 billion (again, I stand to be corrected). Where are these economic managers at the moment? Serving in Mr Hichilema’s government. So the bad you blame PF is part of your core team,” noted Dr M’membe. “In a nutshell, stop the blame game and fix the problems. You are now heading to three years in government, so stop the blame game. If you have failed, just admit, we will forgive you. You are not God, so every human being is fallible. Just admit your failures and seek help.”


  1. HH is fixing the brocken economy which changwas PF destroyed due to their reckless and excesive borrowing and defaulted on the repayment of KALOBA ( Eurobond )
    2. HH has and is restoring order in the country which was destroyed by chagwas PF cadres now there’s sanity in the country although there isolated cases which is, becsuse of the Pf cadres who are still in the hang-over mood and infused in the society .

    3. HH is doing quite a lot to normalise the society that was destroyed by pief

    Jobs are being created, a number of projects are being implemented in all the 156 constituencies through CDF for me this is great only sinners like you mmembe can’t even see even when you have the physical eyes to see what is happening.

    By the way why can’t you fix chagwa who grabbed your post newspaper because of your crookedness of evading tax

    Since you hate HH you will also hate his good works but others are appreciating his presidency.
