Second Republican President Frederick Chiluba has described as liars, people claiming that President Rupiah Banda is enjoying achievements of past leaders.
Dr Chiluba says President Banda has drawn the attention of critics because of his hard work.
The former President says Mr Banda is following up on the aspirations for a better country, as contained in the MMD manifesto.
Dr Chiluba was speaking to ZNBC news in Lusaka Monday.
He said that President Banda has worked extra hard in his two years in office as President.
He has urged the media and the Ministry of information to help publicise the achievements made by the MMD government.
