President Sata says the UPND leader’s claims of Government failure and intimidation are nothing but his trademark irresponsible and unpatriotic utterances.
He says Mr Hichilema sounds and acts more like an economic saboteur than somebody who is providing checks and balances.
President Sata states that no doubt, the bright prospect of a better Zambia on the horizon, which is emboldened by robust infrastructure growth, economic recovery and general improvement in people’s livelihoods, has caged him in perpetual resentment and anger.
The Head of State adds that it is time Mr Hichilema faced reality and started talking about development and other unprecedented progressive reforms happening.
He says the UPND leader should realise that his ‘failed promises’ hymn has passed its shelf-line.
This is contained in a statement issued to QFM News by the president’s special assistant for press and public relations George Chellah
