Lungu has been cheating that he is poor – UPND
Last weekend during the so-called PF mega rally in Ndola, President Edgar Lungu challenged UPND President Hakainde Hichilema and UPND Vice-President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba to bring down the price of beef and mealie meal respectively. This was in reference to the businesses the two run.
Of course, in his usual hypocrisy, Lungu did not reveal that these men have been slowly growing their businesses for more than 30 years now, unlike him who has amassed a huge amount of wealth in just one year of his presidency. Essentially Lungu has grown his wealth by well over 100% in a space of 18 months. If that is not witchcraft then we do not know what is.
This is the same Lungu and his PF colleagues who have been posturing and cheating people that they are poor, and that they care for the poor people.
We now demand that with that newly acquired wealth Lungu immediately sets up a milling plant and cattle ranches and brings down the prices of both mealie meal and beef products. He should lead by example. To grow his personal wealth by over one hundred percent in 18 months is nothing short of a Guinness world record.
As someone who seems such a business genius in doubling and tripling his business empire in such a short space of time, while most other businesses are struggling, he can make it. He can easily invest in these businesses and help the suffering masses as he has scolded others for not doing.
We are told he owns a chain of houses, bars and taverns, and car washes so we look forward to seeing an immediate reduction in the prices of chibuku and other beers, as well as a reduction in house rentals in Zambia.
