Leadership Movement knocks Minister Mwamba, lists failings of Hichilema administration


The Leadership Movement (LM) has called on Minister of Community Development and Social Services, Doreen Mwamba to apologies to the nation for her recent public utterances.

Mwamba was quoted in the media as advising people to stop having many children and putting stress on government.

During the weekly media briefing in Lusaka on Saturday, party Secretary-General, Jairos Ngoma, said Mwamba and other senior government leaders should stop insulting the intelligence of Zambians.

Ngoma stated that the same people who were being insulted today were the same voters who woke up early in the morning to vote for President Hakainde Hichilema and Ministers on August, 12, 2021.

He wondered whether Mwamba and other senior government officials were not aware that the growth in population was as a result of births given by mothers who they are allegedly mocking and insulting today.

“We want to tell Zambians that they have dribbled you and are busy with Ward by-elections instead of sorting out your problems such as the high cost of living. They have gone ahead to give land and preferences to foriegners,” Ngoma stated.

He said the government assured Zambians that it would take care of their needs when it was soliciting for votes but have made a u-turn and had become the bosses of their voters.

Ngoma added that people in Chipangali District of Eastern Province were reportedly feeding on grass hoppers as a result of hunger that had hit the area and government had given a blind eye to this situation.

“It is unfortunate that Mwamba and others have chosen to ignore what is happening on the ground like the situation in Chipangali where people are feeding on grasshoppers and the hunger situation is getting worse,” he stated.

Ngoma noted that prior to the 2021 elections, Hichilema and his administration promised Zambians to lower the cost of living, cost of mealie meal, stabilize the Kwacha, create employment for Zambians among other issues.

He said it was sad that government had failed to deliver on its promises and was busy mocking the same electorate who gave them the opportunity to change their lives by improving the economy.
