 The Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) presidency has dismissed as usual rhetoric the announcement by Labour Minister Fackson Shamenda that the Patriotic Front (PF) government has created more three hundred thousand jobs from the year 2011 to-date.

 MMD presidential Spokesperson Muhabi Lungu says this is because the government has not presented any proof that the said jobs have actually been created.Mr. Lungu says if the PF is to convince the people in the country about the existence of the said job, it has to provide concrete by showing in which sectors the said jobs have been created.

He notes that the creation of any jobs in the country should also be traced to a particular source of employment with further proof of Pay As You Earn tax receipts to employees whose jobs have been referred to as those created by the PF government.
