Former Luapula Member of Parliament Peter Machungwa has charged that the Patriotic Front government has fallen short of people’s expectations.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Qfm news, Machungwa says it will be difficult for Zambians to have faith in a government that has drifted away from its campaign promises.
Machungwa’s statement comes in a wake of an appeal by republican vice president Guy Scott on Zambians to have faith in the PF administration stating that it is on course to implement its campaign promises.
The former Luapula Parliamentarian has described the Vice President’s appeal as unnecessary stating that government needs to get to work as opposed to offering lip-service to Zambians.
Machungwa singled out high unemployment levels as one area that needs urgent attention and further urges the government to accelerate the implementation of their employment strategies.
He also said the PF failure is reflected in depreciation of the local currency, the Kwacha.
