RB fumes; threatens to fire ministers

rupiah-bandaPresident Rupiah Banda has warned that he will not hesitate to suck all ministers and those trying to frustrate his Government.

He noted that at one time Zambia’s foreign reserves stood at US$1.3 billion but now the reserves have gone up.

Mr. Banda who was speaking at celebrations to mark the Silver Jubilee of the Zambia National Marketeers Association in Kitwe today, said as the Economy continues to register growth, money would start getting into the pockets of an average Zambian.

And President Banda has said no well balanced person can give out over US$1.2 billion to an individual

He charged that he was not a mad person who can just give out Government resources at will.

The said a lot of people were not happy with his style of leadership because they had found out that he was not an easy person to work with.

The President cautioned Zambians against involving themselves in acts that may bring chaos in the Country as no one was going to take care of their Children if they started killing each other.

The President also disputed media reports that he had spent over K1 billion in Western Province saying it was not possible for him to have spent such colossal sums of money in two days.

“They are no shops in Liuwa were could I have spent all this money, this is insane, “said President Banda.
