Mr Mufalali said the new dawn administration needed to ensure that there was a cleanup because some individuals were trying to frustrate the efforts of the government.

He said a case in point was the issue of the Farmer Input Support Programme (FISP) which needed to be properly screened as they were too many illegalities going on.

“What I can say is that there  are so much illegalities going on in the FISP programme and it is only prudent for the government to conduct a clean-up,” he said.

Mr Mufalali also said some individuals were benefitting both from FISP and even from the Ministry of Community Development which was not fair as they were getting at the expense of people that were in need.

Mr Mufalali speaking when he featured on Radio Christian Voice said Government needed to act because such individuals if left unchecked would continue frustrating the efforts being made by President Hakainde Hichilema. 

“Not everyone is bad in the system but there are some individuals that do not mean well and are trying to frustrate the head of state,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mr Mufalali said there was need to deal with the issue of Sugilite properly because if left unchecked only a few individuals would benefit from mining this mineral. 

He said there was need for a policy frame work and that Mines minister Paul Kabuswe had indicated that there was need for proper systems.

“The Government needs to ensure that proper measures are put in place concerning Sugilite because very few people were benefitting from the illegal trade of Sugilite,” he said.
