The price of bread in Zambia has now reached K6000 (six thousand Kwacha), the highest it has ever been in the history of the country.
And a 25 kg of meallie- meal is selling around K50, 000 making it extremely expensive for most households whose bread-winners have no formal employment or regular income.
A small bottle of cooking oil costs at least K3, 500 in most parts of Lusaka and Copperbelt.
Most people in Lusaka are now resorting to walking to town as mini-buses are beyond their reach. The shortest distance by minibus, like from Town to Kawmwala shopping area is now K3, 500. It means a person needs at list K7, 000 to go town every day.
Meanwhile, political analyst Dante Saunders says he can’t think of any campaign promise the PF government has fulfilled so far.
Saunders told Radio Phoenix Tuesday morning that, in his opinion, if elections were called today, PF would get less than 25 per cent votes- if there is no rigging.
During the campaign period, the PF promised to develop Zambia within 90 days so that there would no shortages of fuel, power cuts etc…
They promised to put more money in people’s pockets.
