It’s a pity that Mr. Edwin Sakala, president of the little known Zambia Direct Democracy Movement (ZDDM) has opted to tell lies ABOUT the political and economic situation in the country.
As PF in Southern Province, we find the recent remarks attributed to Mr. Sakala on Zambezi FM in Livingstone not only mischievous but a figment of his mind. In his statement, Mr. Sakala went on a lengthy chat of deceit and deliberate distortion of facts about the governance situation in the country with a view scoring cheap political points.
He claims among others that the country is currently facing food shortages. We therefore, challenge Mr. Sakala to tell the nation about the so-called food shortages the country is experiencing. Can he state what areas and how many people are affected by these imaginary shortages? We challenge him to substantiate his malicious claims.
This responsible government has been working tirelessly to ensure that the general welfare of all citizens is catered for and the lives of our people improve for the better. If there are food shortages in Mr. Sakala’s residence; let him not assume everyone is as irresponsible as him.
We know for a fact that the same way Mr. Sakala scavenges for publicity; he does the same to earn a living – sadly through politics. For a man of his age, we expect Mr. Sakala to devise better ways of looking after himself instead of these embarrassing escapades like his recent ‘paid for’ statement on Zambezi FM.
The PF in Southern Province is happy with the programmes the Government is implementing and we are fully satisfied that by the time we reach 2016, this region will be a totally different place.
We want to advise Mr. Sakala to confine his cheap politics to Lusaka and not bring them anywhere near Livingstone and Southern Province in general. The people of Southern Province are not short of voices to let starving and disgraced politicians like Mr. Sakala project themselves as their defenders.
