Responding to Mr. Hichilema statement that the move by government to reform the public service pension scheme is a ploy not to pay retirees, Mr. Shamenda says Mr. Hichilema should keep quiet than mislead the nation.
He explains that government’s world over are reforming the public pension schemes in a bid to give better conditions to the majority retirees who for many years fail to get their retirement package on time.
Mr. Shamenda government is not in support of politicians that want to alarm the nation on simple issues.
He says the Patriotic Front government is committed to ensuring that Zambians have their retirement dues in a quick way than waiting for years to get their gratuities.
Mr Shamenda has since appealed to Mr. Hichilema to seek audience with him if he is to understand the move by government to reform the public service pension scheme
