Movement for Democratic Change MDC President Felix Mutati has expressed concern that the Patriotic Front PF is abusing the Covid-19 health guidelines as they have continued with their mobilization campaigns putting the lives of all Zambians at risk for political expediency.

Addressing a press briefing this morning, Mr. Mutati says President Edgar Lungu as head of state must take responsibility to stop the manipulation of the Covid19 health guidelines for political advantage by the PF when all other political parties equally want to mobilize but observe the guidelines.

Mr. Mutati says coronavirus is a serious pandemic but it is saddening that despite this status quo, this has not been taken as serious in the democratic space as some political parties are manipulating the guidelines to their advantage.

Meanwhile Mr. Mutati says that government must reboot the economy to address the current issues by taking a different approach than it did under the first wave of the pandemic.

Mr. Mutati says the current shortage of fuel can be avoided if government stopped the procurement of fuel and allow the private sector to take a leading role which will in turn bring about competition in the sector.

Meanwhile an effort to get a comment from the Pf failed by broadcast time.
