Defence minister says Zambia poised for economic boom

Minister of Defence Davies Chama says Zambia is poised for economic development owing to the ambitious development programme that the government has embarked on, according to ZNBC.

Chama says President Edgar Lungu has put in place a massive development programme that will see Zambia become a viable economic hub in Africa.

Chama said this in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia when he addressed diplomatic staff and Zambians living in Ethiopia at a dinner organized at the Residence for Zambia’s Ambassador to Ethiopia Susan Sikaneta.

He said government was putting in mechanisms to ensure that Agriculture becomes the backbone of the country’s economy.

Chama further disclosed that defence forces were also beginning to contribute to the National Development through Agriculture.

    Davies Chanda could be right because his nearest comparable to an economic development boom is Katanga where there is nothing but “Somalianization umuntu nomuntu kulibongesha” style voodoo economics! Any president who would appoint such a tribally bigoted functional illiterate for Defence Minister has masalamusi in the head, Lungu is sick, too much babalaza ba Jonah Mutawara wa Blantyre.

    Why is Defense Minister commenting on Economics of the country.

    Isn’t his job security?

    Dr. Haabazoka says only economists should comment on economic issues, and is advocating for a law to ban non-economists from doing so. So many of us would be jailed if this was to happen. Anyway, no sane leader can push for such an idiotic agenda.

    Words, words, words and only words. What haven’t we heard before? Who will invest in Zambia with such high taxes? Where even the donors who used to assist in agriculture have stopped their funding? Give us a break. The effect of salary increments for them means economic boom. The reality is that things are getting worse and they have no idea how to correct the situation. We have heard all these lies before. They have even run out of lies and are recycling the same lies we have been told before.
