Mutati must not mock Zambians about economy growing – UPND

File: Percy Chanda addressing a rally

The UPND has hit out at minister of finance Felix Mutati, accusing him of lying about the country’s economic performance.


Reacting to Mutati’s clams that Zambia was showing strong signs of economic recovery, UPND chairperson for labour Percy Chanda charged that the country can not be run on lies and mockery.


“You cannot run a country by cheating. What makes the Finance Minister Felix Mutati to start dreaming that the economy is doing well?” Chanda said in a statement. “If the economy has improved for him as Minister he should not mock Zambians who are suffering because the economy has been messed up by the chipantepante government.


“Let him enjoy quietly other than provoking people who are having one meal per day and failing to send Children to school. Let alone access proper medical care.


“The behavior displayed by the MMD/PF Minister of Finance is like that of a child who sneaks uninvited into a cruel neighbor’s house and eats a very nice meal but later boasts to his friends that he is eating well. This behavior is very shameful, we call it ‘sebana wikute’.


“Just look around yourself and see how people are suffering to mange themselves adequately. Look around and see how many projects have been abandoned and above all look at the number of the unemployed youths.”


Chanda cited corruption as the reason behind the country’s economic stagnation.


“This Country has been taken backwards because of the unprecedented corruption in the PF Government. Your Boss Mr. Lungu admitted publicly that he is running a very corrupt Government. But because of the same corruption he has failed to fire his corrupt Ministers as birds of the same feathers flock together.”


And Chanda has lashed out at former UPND members accusing party leader Hakainde Hichilema of engaging in tribalism, saying they have sold themselves for survival.


“HH is a seasoned and matured politician whose main interest is to serve the people Zambia. As UPND members we are solidly behind him and we will never stop supporting him.


“HH is an asset to us; we know his value while some of you run away from him we will never do that, come what may. If I had noticed anything wrong I would have left UPND but some of you left because of hunger nothing else.


“As usual when you are paid you claim HH is a tribalist far from it. I’m a Bemba and I enjoy very cordial relation with HH than I enjoyed any relationship with people you claim are not trbilists. Just enjoy the proceeds of crime before we come for you one day.”

  3. It is like English is a problem in UPND. Try tonga and you will understand. Mutati said and I quote “showing strong signs of economic recovery” which you have also quoted. It does not mean the economy has improved but just showing signs of possible improvement. Up and Down yapping like rabid pappies

  4. One does not need to be an economist to know that removing k2.5billion from circulation to control dollar rate is a criminal way of doing things, is increase in production. Its also legalising day light robbery by mutati for proposing to cut 30% money on all account holders, also to cut 15% on every bank transaction made. Declaration of economic growth by mutati, is a lie. Because the factors he is using in his perceived economic growth, are fake, & fabricated, soon there are deadly consquences coming of financial constrictions in society, that people will be worshiping ecl & his politicians just for a bit of money, in fact they have already started-name of church is “christians for lungu”. This is one of the signs of satanic works torwards end of the world, ecl pf government.
