UNITED Party for National Development (UPND) Chairman for Labour Percy Chanda has said the exercise of sending ministers out to go and explain government decision of removing subsidies on fuel and maize was another careless spending of national resources, which would just increase government expenditure further
The former Kankoyo PF MP was reacting to media reports where President Michael Sata was quoted instructing his ministers to go out and explain to the people on why the PF Government had removed subsidies on fuel and maize.
Mr Chanda said Zambians should not waste time listening to the lies of PF ministers on the removal of subsidies on fuel and maize, but should spend that time looking for food for themselves.
He said the ministers who have been sent to explain the removal of subsidies on fuel and maize would be using free fuel, free lodging and other hefty allowances whilst Zambians were wallowing in hunger.
“Hunger has no any other explanation, apart from food on the table. What good is there, after listening to these PF liars, then you go back home and find no food. So it is better for Zambians to ignore these PF liars and their explanations and go out to look for food for themselves,” Mr Chanda said.
