Lungu cheats Petauke traders of ’empowerment’ funds

petaukeHundreds of Petauke traders have once again been deceived with President Edgar Lungu’s empowerment funds.

Sensing that UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema and his team will be in Eastern province, Lungu’s errand boy Chanda Kabwe went into the province and gave fake documents to the marketeers and vendors instructing them to go and get money from Zanaco bank.

But for the past two days there has been no payment as the poor people queued as early as 05:00hrs waiting for the bank to open at about 08:30hrs. These poor traders even abandoned their trade places just to be deceived by Lungu and PF.

Kabwe has since left, but we believe this expose will compel the PF to find money and pay the traders who have still vowed not to vote PF in spite of taking the money.

“Ndalama yeve tizatola koma tivotela lini a lungu na anthu ao. Tikavote pa kwanja (We shall certainly take the money but never vote for PF and Lungu, we are voting for UPND and Hichilema)”, some women were heard saying as the Watchdog reporter who disguised himself as one of the vendors listened.
