FIX IT, HH CHALLENGED
…stop giving excuses, says ZRP
PRESIDENT Hakainde Hichilema inherited a vibrant economy from the PF Government and therefore has no excuse not to deliver on the things he said he was going to do once voted in power, Zambian Republican Party (ZRP) president Wright Musoma has said
Mr Musoma said President Hichilema’s main intention was to be on the list of Zambian republican presidents and not to serve the interests of the citizens,
Mr Musoma said in an interview that the failure by Mr Hichilema to assure Zambians that he was going to fulfill his campaign promises has vindicated the ZRP and all those who opposed his presidential bid.
He observed that the change in President Hichilema’s tone after ascending to power is a clear indication that he is preparing and headed to fail to fix the main challenges facing the country.
Mr Musoma said Mr Hichilema inherited a vibrant economy from the PF Government and therefore has no excuse not to deliver on the things he said he was going to do once in office.
“It’s now clear that Mr Hichilema only wanted to be on the list of people who have served as republican Presidents and not what he was preaching during the campaigns,” he said.
He said ZRP and other progressive opposition political parties are not going to tolerate any excuses from Mr Hichilema’s government because the people voted for him based on his promises which he portrayed as best from the rest.
“As Zambians, we will not entertain any excuses from Mr Hichilema and his Government, because he spoke so well in opposition that he was going to ‘fix it’,” said Mr Musoma.
Mr Musoma who was one of the main critics of the UPND while in opposition, said Mr Hichilema should quickly realise that he is no longer in opposition and get to work and deliver on his many promises to the people.
He said Zambians are waiting for Mr Hichilema to fulfill his promise to create 75, 000 new jobs, reduce mealie meal price to K50 per 25kg bag and increase the salaries of civil servants by K1, 500 above board, among others.
