DON’T SHIFT ATTENTION, HH ADVISED
By ADRIAN MWANZA
THE pronouncement by President Hakainde Hichilema to set up Corruption Fast Track Courts was just cosmetic and aimed at shifting people’s attention from real issues, New Congress Party (NCP) president, Peter Chanda has said.
Mr Chanda in an interview said that the President was trying to ensure that people’s expectations were diverted by saying the previous government was corrupt.
He said the fast track corruption court was not what people wanted but that they ushered in the new government because they wanted an improvement in the economy and creation of more jobs. ‘’For me I feel it is just a cosmetic promise aimed at hoodwinking people from what they were promised when they were in opposition,’’ he said.
He said that the ruling party promised people
to fix the economy in the first 200 days in office and that his party was closely watching and ensuring that they stuck to their campaign promises. Mr Chanda said that the previous government had scored a number of successes and that they left US$3 billion in the reserves and that what was needed was for the new administration to improve on that and not what was not important.
Meanwhile the UPND Alliance said Zambians needed to step up and assist President Hichilema swiftly recover all stolen public assets now and into the future.
