His Excellency, Mr Michael Chilufya Sata, President of the Republic of Zambia, has said UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema is too preoccupied with elections to contribute meaningfully to the development of the country.
President Sata said the UPND leader’s claims of Government failure and intimidation are nothing but his trademark irresponsible and unpatriotic utterances.
“In all intent and purpose, he sounds and acts more like an economic saboteur than somebody who is providing checks and balances,” President Sata said.
“No doubt, the bright prospect of a better Zambia on the horizon, which is emboldened by robust infrastructure growth, economic recovery and general improvement in people’s livelihoods, has caged him in perpetual resentment and anger.”
The Head of State added: “Its time he faced reality and started talking about development and other unprecedented progressive reforms happening. Let him realise that his ‘failed promises’ hymn has passed its shelf-line.”
