Press Release

23rd March, 2012

 

Our country is presently facing quite a number of problems which need to be addressed.  The problems range from unemployment, poverty, dilapidated infrastructure etc.

 

Our economy is ailing, our kwacha depreciating and Zambians expect that the PF government addresses these many challenges with the hands on approach.  Zambians expect that the President takes a lead in addressing these problems.

 

We have taken note with great concern that instead of addressing the many challenges, the head of state has decided to go on holiday though certain sections of society had indicated that the President had flown to India for medical attention.  This was dispelled by the Vice President, Guy Scott reiterating that Mr. Sata is in India on a private visit though this being the case, we now demand that Mr. Sata cancels his holiday and comes back home to take a lead in fighting the many problems our country is facing such as dealing with the issue of Civil Servants salary, resolve the problems of Copperbelt University and ensures that the school opens as soon as possible.

 

Mr. Sata is known to be a man of action and therefore should be in action addressing the economical and social challenges the country is faced with as opposed to being on holiday barely six (6) months after assuming office.  We also demand that the government withdraws the huge number of Police Officers and Army Officers

that have been deployed in Western Province so as to allow the Barotse National Council proceedings to go ahead in an environment that is free of intimidation

 Signed by

Richard M Kapita

DEPUTY PRESIDENT
