Ladies and gentlemen welcome to Zambia where we have to ask state house for permission to report people to the ACC. These gentlemen are really taking us for a ride, it’s funny how the president has failed to respond to how he acquired so much wealth in a year instead he has called the corruption claims baseless because he is now a judge of whether someone is corrupt or not, he has called real time corruption allegations as a distraction that has left his few innocent ministers paralysed with fear of being caught of corruption. Instead of clarifying and putting to bed the allegations by explaining his wealth and the exorbitant fire tenders that he claimed where above board and followed the proper ZPPA guidelines.
Now ZPPA has refused involvement in the day light robbery because that is an institution willing to remain principled. This now means that the Ministry of Local Government procured these basic fire engines for that exorbitant corrupt price. I feel sorry for first timers like Chiteme having to do the dirty work with what is clearly a planned video made to in order to fool the public. What did that fireman explain about the price because all he said was these oxygen cylinders are K20,000 and he then clearly told us to multiply K20,000 by 4 to get the total cost of $1 million, what a joke and what a low low thing to do from this government.
Now going back to Amos Chanda who has basically told us that the President does not care whether 90 percent of the citizenry feel like they are being robbed by a few selfish individuals in government, the President says these claims are unsubstantiated because to him that red basic truck looks like it is certainly worth K10,000,000 as if the people that voted for him aren’t living in abject poverty. The president owes citizens an explanation for him and his few friends wealth because state house is a public office and the president takes orders from the public.
Thank you for being honest Mr Director General and thank you for pointing the finger back at Honourable Kampyongo.
