Changing Finance Minister won’t resolve economic mess-HH

United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema has charged that the changing of Finance Ministers will not sort out the economic challenges facing the country.
Addressing a media briefing at his new Kasama residence, Hichilema said the economic mess under the PF was beyond redemption and cannot be reversed by mere appointment of a new Minister adding that though newly appointed Finance Minister Dr Bwalya Ngandu was qualified for the job, he will soon be swallowed up in PF mismanagement of the country because the fundamentals are wrong.
Hichilema further noted that the positive response by the financial markets after the appointment of Dr Ng’andu was a temporal knee- jack reaction because of the good perception on Dr Ng’andu ‘abilities’.
And Hichilema also directed UPND members of parliament not to support constitutional amendments that the PF wants to push through the Constitutional Amendment Bill from the discredited National Dialogue Forum, NDF.
