Zambians are Hurting, Says Nawakwi

Edith NawakwiForum for Democracy and Development (FDD) leader Edith Nawakwi has observed that the Zambian people are hurting following government’s decision to remove subsidies on fuel and maize.

Nawakwi says by removing the subsidies, government has decided to make the Zambian people shoulder the burden of the gaps in the 2013 budget which have arisen as a result of unplanned expenditure such as on the by-elections.

She says the PF government should not pretend by telling the Zambian people that the money from the subsidies will be channeled to roads and health infrastructure development when it will go towards covering up the holes in the budget.

Nawakwi adds that the Ministers who have been deployed to explain the removal of the subsidies do not even understand the issue.

She further states that all the promises that the PF made to the Zambian people of lower taxes and lower commodity prices among others have proved to have been acts of deception.

Nawakwi says the PF government has breached its partnership with the Zambian people by failing to fulfill the promises made to the Zambian people.

She says the PF should go back to the Zambian people and prove that they have not been deceived with unrealistic campaign promises.

The FDD leader was speaking on Radio Phoenix’s Let The People Talk this morning monitored by QFM News.
