Laura Miti: The Edgar Lungu Administration has Blood on its Hands

We have #cholera because we have a non-functional government that routinely chooses corruption, populism, patronage & dysfunction over citizen good. The PF government, with eyes wide open and surely aware of what the consequences would be, allowed perfect conditions for cholera to to exist in Lusaka as follows:

1. They allowed money due to the council from bus stops and markets to be stolen openly by their cadres,

2. For votes, they encouraged vendors to overtake the city knowing that there are no toilets

3. They ignored the criminal level of filth at Soweto market

4. They have routinely allowed money that could improve sanitation to be mismanaged. making mind boggling choices like #42For42, ambulances and mukula with scare resources that could have have fundamentally changed lives.

5. They have facilitated the brokenness in the economy that has resulted in so many surviving via a back-breaking, overcrowded informal sector.

Simply this government has been concerned only about getting and holding on to power for the sole reason of enriching their individual selves. Therefore the blood of every person that has died in this cholera outbreak, the hunger ravaging homes, the loss of millions in business in on the hands of every one in the Edgar Lungu administration. They have, in relation to citizen good, acted like ticks on an emanciated dog.

    Laura, you are off the hook.Cholera is not PF creation but years of poor planning and unplanned compounds in our cities and towns including the Sale of council assets which left most councils finciancially crippled.

      Am dismayed with ba prophet.Let’s be realistic. We are in 2018 not 18 you are talking.Let’s just fight this disease together through God’s help not thru critics. Let’s say thanks were its due.Thanks to all who participated in the clean up.

    I didn’t hear her on radio but I think she is not right. Its not the PF Government’s fault that people can’t clean their own yards or keep their surroundings clean. No…its down to everyone of us to adhere to the basic hygiene regime and for us to avoid dirty selling points, i. e. markets, shops etc but do we do that ..no..we keep on patronising these places buying from these dirty places encouraging their dirtiness and you want the Government to come and clean up after you..no..just like charity starts at home so does cleanliness

    Comment:We must all be careful with these politicians,when war starts they do run to other countries and hideout. Same applies to now that all places are attacked by Cholera you can’t see any of these criminals.Zambians are very foolish because they easily forget politician’s Acts, we see wrong things and just watch.Barring our Heads into sand is a foolish act of an ostrich as a way of hiding from it’s enemy.

    Corruption and mismanagement of resources can land a country in such a situation. Personal hygiene and proper planning by government can surely act as a prevention measure. Miti is right in her own right.

    The opposition especially the up and down have largely contributed 2 the breaking out and the spread of cholera because they defend street vending 2 gain cheap polical latitude. Right thinking minds should blame the opposition and not the ever hardworking PF government. Viva PF do not be swayed by tick infested hyenas, period!
