Pres. Lungu Warns State House Staff Against Abusing Power

President Edgar Chagwa Lungu has warned State House staff not to abuse their power and play hands in the sub contracting of the communication tower project.

Speaking when he witnessed the $282 million project between government and China, The Head of State warned that he would not act kindly to those who want to abuse their power and play hands in the project to prompt the contractor in his sub contracting, highlighting State House in particular.

“State House, you have heard, STAY AWAY!” he warned.

“Those of you who claim to have power do not abuse the contractor by insisting that he employs contractors who are not qualified, this will compromise quality.”

He added; “And I will not be friendly to those who want to push their luck in that direction, please keep away. STATE HOUSE YOU HAVE HEARD!”

    You quacks! Let me warn you on behalf of my president. In fact his warning is long overdue and timely now. I don’t know whether I just slept over it but it must get on you rightly. I will start by informing you that he is so jovial such that he brings you closer to see around you. He has got sharp eyes to see what is in front of him also what is behind him. In himself, being humble is not being weak, but just his nature.Don’t go wrong on that one, cos your fingers will be burnt. Let me say that his blows are that of High tensile strengthe. Get me wrong! You will be punched to the canvas. Ask CK, he is still on the canvas, I don’t know when he is going to stand up, still groaning, up to now ,imagine! I end here for frear not to be punched also.

    These loans are supposed to benefit Zambians but the Foreign contractors behave as if it’s a favour they are doing us just because they control the money and can bribe one or two unpatriotic citizens along the way. Enough is enough. 20% Zambian subcontracting is only a minimum requirement but we have big corporations coming to Zambia playing the role of middle men and cutting out all local experts and management and simply employing our low level workers who won’t question profit or technical matters. At phase 2 the chaos are supposed to use the local capacity they created in Phase 1 and there should be no foreign contractor otherwise it would be fair to say that our foreign contractors are sabotaging government efforts to empower locals by making it extremely difficult for them to participate. Don’t take Zambians for granted.
