The Zambia Federation of Employers (ZFE) has challenged the Central Statistical Office (CSO) to help tell the nation the exact number of jobs the PF government has created since coming to power in 2011.

ZFE Executive Director, Harrington Chibanda, has told QFM News in a telephone interview that there is need for government to give the exact numbers of jobs that have been created rather than giving contradicting figures.

Mr. Chibanda states that there is also need for government to state clearly what kind of jobs have created whether temporal or descent ones.

He says it is not enough to merely state that so many jobs have been created in the road construction sector considering that road construction jobs are not permanent jobs.

Mr Chibanda notes that there are too many contradicting statements coming from government officials claiming that so many quality jobs have been created without proof.

Mr. Chibanda says it is therefore, necessary and important that the Central Statistical Office clears the air by telling the nation how many jobs the PF has actually created.
