Zambians are lazy, says newly employed Mulusa

After failing to pay contractors, the PF has now shifted the blame and started insulting Zambians saying they are lazy.

State House inspector Lucky Mulusa says Forty-six Zambian contractors have abandoned their projects in Muchinga Province.

Mulusa says there is need for Zambia to copy the mindset of the Chinese people. He said there is a lot of hard work among Chinese people while in Zambia the situation is different, meaning Zambians are lazy.

He did not explain why Zambian contractors abandoned the projects but insinuated that they abandoned them due to laziness and irresponsibility.
The Watchdog has been reporting that due to lack of money, almost all the projects started by late president Michael Sata have ground to a halt.

Mulusa told ZNBC News in Beijing, China that he visited 50 projects in Muchinga Province and that only 6 had contractors on site and that the rest have been abandoned.

He said Government is not happy with the state of Affairs especially that most of the contractors are Zambians are abandoning their own projects.

Mulusa said it is because of this that President Edgar Lungu is in China leading a high powered delegation to see how best Zambians can emulate the working culture of the Chinese people.

He says the massive infrastructure in China has been due to the hard work and patriotism of the Chinese people.
Meanwhile, Mulusa says government is engaging Chinese Companies to set up cement manufacturing companies in Zambia.

He says negotiations with some Chinese Companies that are willing to invest in cement manufacturing in Zambia has reached an advanced stage.

Mulusa says the PF government has embarked on a massive national wide infrastructure development but that high cost of cement is negatively impacting on the pace of various projects.

Mulusa has told ZNBC News in an interview in the Chinese Capital, Beijing that cement in China cost about 60 US dollars per ton while in Zambia one ton of cement cost about 6-hundred US dollars which is about 10 times higher.

He says it is for this reason that President Edgar Lungu is in China engage various investors who will help to reduce the cost of infrastructure development in Zambia.

And Mulusa says there is need for Zambia to copy the mindset of the Chinese people. He said there is a lot of hard work among Chinese people while in Zambia the situation is different, meaning Zambians are lazy.

Is it really true that there are 50 projects going on in Muchinga?
