SINGER Chama Fumba also known as Pilato says President Edgar Lungu’s advisors are not doing great job, saying that there are so many issues affecting Zambians which have been left without answers.
Mr. Fumba in his Facebook posting said there was need for President Lungu to address the challenges that Zambians are facing before he releases another song.
Mr. Fumba was last year in June arrested for mocking President Lungu in a song.
But in his Facebook posting, Mr. Fumba stated that President Lungu should do the right thing and make his legacy pride.
“Pilato wrote:Dear ba President Lungu, I told myself never to do a song on President Lungu this year but it’s becoming very difficult not to do so. I honestly think the president’s advisers and those that simply talk to him are not doing a great job. So many issues affecting the majority of our people have been left without answers,” Mr. Fumba stated.
“I HONESTLY do have a song about you and you may not like it. I am hesitating to release it hoping that you act on the so many issues affecting our people. Please my President, do the right thing and make your legacy your pride.”
Mr. Fumba stated that the prices of mealie meal had become so unbearable and that the government had not explained what had necessitated the increase.
He stated that the government had instead continued to make the childish statements and that there was also a shortage of the mealie meal and yet there was no clear explanation.
Mr. Fumba stated that the Minister of Agriculture had maintained that the country had plenty of maize stocks.
“Every month we are spending US$18million on power but they have not shared with the public the period for how long this unbudgeted for expenditure will go on. We are told that Kariba dam may need 3 years of good rainfall for it to work as expected. For how long will this massive load shedding be with us,” he stated.
Mr. Fumba stated that the University of Zambia and Copperbelt University were in shameful conditions.
He stated that today it was still unclear under what circumstances the two universities would reopen as the minister responsible [Michael Kaingu] seemed to be dancing between two opposing stands.
“Mr. President this is about your legacy so it’s only right that you act now lwenu (It is your fault). These people you are working with do still have ambitions so when your time is over these people will be joining other coming governments and be ministers but for you that may be your last political job,” stated Fumba
