United Party for National Development (UPND) vice president Richard Kapita has charged that corruption is endemic in the PF government.

Mr Kapita has challenged President Michael Sata to tell the nation as to whether the cancelled procurement of 42,000 metric tones of Urea fertilizer from a Chinese company is not part of the alleged corruption taking place in his government.

UPND vice president for administration Richard Kapita has wondered why the said procurement of fertilizer was cancelled and what President Sata is doing about it.

Mr. Kapita has told Qfm in an interview that both President Sata and Agriculture Minister Robert Sichinga should tell the nation what is going on with regard the cancelled procurement of fertilizer from a Chinese company.

He says it is also surprising to note that some PF members who were driving cheap cars are suddenly driving brand new expensive cars in the short period the PF government has been in power.

Mr. Kapita says time will come when the UPND will hold such people accountable to explain their source of such wealth.
