NDC Advises President Lungu To Cut Down On Uneconomical Trips

President Edgar Lungu has been advised to consider cutting down on uneconomical trips he continues to make abroad in line with the austerity measures announced by government.

Opposition National Democratic Congress Secretary General, Mwenya Musenge feels the visit to Turkey by the Head of State is one such costly trip that should have been avoided.

Mr. Musenge says Zambia has an envoy designate to Turkey who could have effectively represented President Lungu at the inauguration of that country’s President.

He says the colossal sums of money that the President is wasting on allowances and other incidentals could be used on productive ventures such as buying drugs and medicines for the country’s health facilities.
