Government to spend $1.2 billion on military uniform

Government to spend $1.2 billion on military uniform

The PF government is in the process of spending US1.2Billion on Ministry of Defence Uniforms.

But insiders say the PF government wants to raise campaign money for the 2021 elections through an overpriced single-sourced tender

According to a tender document obtained, the procurement will be selective meaning single sourced. This scandal comes at a time when Zambia has applied to the IMF for funds to help with Coronavirus. See tender document.

Last year, president Edgar Lungu announced austerity measures which are still supposed to be in effect.

    The British gave independence to Zambia rather too early. They should have waited a little longer so that leaders develop a culture of respect for national assets and public institutions. Anyway I understand why the British did what they did. I am sure they were getting tired of being called names by uncivilised natives. This planned procurement just shows that Zambians in particular are still uncivilized and not ready to operate transparent democratic institutions.

    Military uniforms can go to open tender 3 weeks ago

    Uniforms must be an international competitive tender as there is no secrecy on it. By restricting the tender, PF Government and the eastern cartel in the Ministry are trying to cut a big deal out of suppliers. Shame PF. Just cancel the tender & advertise as it is not too late!

    Zambia is a condemned country that should not have been allowed to exist in the first place. With such a culture and a Government like PF forget about progress.
