Criminals Took Advantage of Privatization

THE Privatisation of companies was a well intended programme but it was abused by criminals who sold assets for a song, says Raphael Nakachinda.

Featuring on Radio Chimwemwe in Ndola today, Mr. Nakachinda, who is former National Secretary in the Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) government, said the party was overzealous to privatise key industries, including mines.
He said the privatisation of mines and other companies had denied many Zambians employment, and he apologised on behalf of the former ruling party for this mistake.
“MMD trusted the wrong people during the process of privatisation”, said Mr. Nakachinda.

    The complaint could be genuine but they must be overwhelming evidence to prove his wrong doings.And I know time is not a limit Think of Jacob Zuma of South Africa.

    HH was a conveyor/liquidator. He didn’t decide nor agree pricing. He may have valued the assets but the final selling prices were negotiated and agreed by MMD GOVT including Nawakwi. As a businessman, HH protected his interests. It was up to MMD to protect its interest on behalf of Zambians. Is it no wonder that most of the greedy people from MMD who ate privatization money are dead? Some of them violent deaths? Poetic justice?

      Well spoken but,we shouldn’t wish the death of any person. Let’s be human and respect every bodies life. Viva HH and its my first time that such a presidential race is unique far far away as the previous ones.People have spoken.Is it cause of CIVID 19 this bought down the rise and down fall of Adi Amin within two terms in power ! What a shame ! Even Michael Chilufya Data (MHSRIP) is not happy about it.We are all one in the eyes of of God and I saw it coming.Well done HH .Listen to the cries of people.
