WHY RULING UPND YOUTHS ARE STARVING
By Miles B. Sampa, MP (21.09.2022)
Statement by the UPND deputy SG Gertrude Imenda that UPND youths are not benefiting from their victory because PF is still Incharge in laughable and depicts of a person that is either not intouch with reality on the ground or he is just being mischievous with the lazy trajectory of instead of resolving, keeps blaming a former husband that is long gone for everything.
2.0 Pa Ground
Here is truth. All opposition PF youths are starving. Unprecedented is that even all ruling government UPND youths are also starving if not more. Kuti waumfwa noluse ngabwlekulomba (saddening when they ask for help).
3.0) Why UPND Youths have No Money
Kwati ba Finance Minister Dr Musokotwane at MOF nabo naba kota as did my beloved ABC (MHSRIEP).
Reason is due to lack of government spending in the economy and enshrined in the Keynesian economics.
3.1) Keynesian Economic Theory
Here is what the guru of economics John Maynard Keynes preached over 70 years ago.
His theories known as Keynesian economics, center around the idea that governments should play an active role in their countries’ economies, instead of just letting the free market reign. Specifically, Keynes advocated federal spending to mitigate downturns in business cycles.
Accordingly, GDP is defined by the following formula: GDP = Consumption + Investment + Government Spending + Net Exports or more succinctly as GDP = C + I + G + NX where consumption (C) represents private-consumption expenditures by households and nonprofit organizations, investment (I) refers to business expenditures …
It follows therefore that if the UPND government is not spending on their youths via business contracts be it to mend roads or to supply goods and services to government, economic activities shrink, money become scarce and people begin to starve.
5.0) Examples Spending not Good for UPND youths
5.1) Giving ZESCO poles supply contracts to a Zimbabwean company did not empower any of the UPND youths.
5.2) Giving the fertilizer or maize contracts to only Alpha commodities and ETG has not and will not empower any of the UPND youths.
5.3) The direct purchase of 156 motor vehicles by Government from CDF funds has also denied atleast 156 UPND youths from supplying the vehicles to their MPs offices.
6.0) National Benefits of Empowering UPND Youths
If UPND youths are empowered, then they will be able to buy talk time or frizit from ordinary citizens (including PF youths) and in the end all citizens will benefit.
That’s how it worked before and that’s how it works anywhere in the World.
Without government spending as above, bo Imenda will be sounding like a broken record blaming PF until it will be 2026.
One more thing, please stop sending your youths to come see us MPs for CDF empowerment which has never arrived anywhere. It’s stuck somewhere between Councils, ZPPA and the Central Government.
