‘We‘re ready to help –HH
By SILUMESI MALUMO
WE are ready to work with Government to address debt restructuring, United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema has said.
Mr Hichilema in his Facebook posting yesterday, said the government must not engage any foreign advisors because the experts in the party were more than ready to give a service.
Bloomberg has reported that the government is looking for advisors on debt restructuring.
But Mr Hichilema said “We think Government must not waste time and money on foreign advisors because we are ready for the task.
“We in the UPND are ready to work with the government to address this issue. The Government just needs to provide us with the entire debt portfolio and we can work with their technocrats to devise strategy for debt recovery,” Mr Hichilema said.
This work will be done for free, he said, we have patriots that are ready to move on this distressing situation.
And Mr Hichilema says he is more than ready to donate resources to be used to fight the Covid-19 adding that he was not selfish as people passive him to be because he was available to help to protect the lives of Zambians.
He said this in Lusaka yesterday during a special programme on Hot FM breakfast show.
He said if he was told where he could provide resources to help in fighting the outbreak, he would do it without fail.
Give two institutions were you want me to donate to, I would do that because it would help to safeguard the lives of people
Mr Hichilema also pledged to donate food to drivers who have been quarantined in Livingstone as they were crying of hunger.
