The opposition Movement for Multi Party (MMD) youths have charged that Republican President Michael Sata should be ranked as the least hard working President in the history of Zambia.

MMD Die Hard National Coordinator Bowman Lusambo says Heads of State the world over are known to work very long hours.

Mr. Lusambo notes that late President Levy Mwanawasa despite his poor health is on recording as having stayed up late in his office as late as 23 Hours working and holding business meetings.

Mr. Lusambo says at the height of the privatization programme, late Dr Frederick Chiluba is said to have stayed in the office until 04 Hours ensuring that this country was on the road to economic recovery.

He states that President Rupiah Banda also travelled the length and breadth of this great country launching, commission and monitoring developmental projects, a clear sign of hard work and commitment to duty.

Mr. Lusambo says Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations, George Chellah in his unusual uncouth manner revealed that President Sata works from 07:300 Hours to 13:00 Hours then breaks off for lunch for an hour and resumes at 14:00 Hours to 18:00 Hours.

He has charged that as expected, Mr. Chellah decided to mutilate Dr. Mumbas well-intentioned statement by making desperate attempts to divert attention from the serious issues raised by Dr Mumba.

He states that other opposition political parties also agreed with Dr Mumba that President Sata is doing a disservice to the working population in particular and to the Zambians in general by failing to articulate his agenda for the Zambian worker.

He furthermore states that Dr Chellah went on to produce a half-baked, illogical, immature, unresearched and badly packaged statement attacking Dr Mumba’s persona.

He says if President Sata works for 9 Hours according to information supplied by Mr. Chellah, then President Sata is not working as hard as he should, given the many challenges that Zambia faces.

  3. However, if you are in your younger years and wish to enhance your growth, a good diet
    and exercise can be very beneficial. Miniature Roses, also called Dwarf
    Roses, can be charming little plants with tiny leaves and flowers that are much
    smaller than Hybrid Teas. Growing taller is not a challenge for
    those who believe in working hard to achieve
    the desired goal through a proper height enhancement program.

  4. That’s a good start to see if it is a taste that you will enjoy.

    Though this oil is rich in saturated fats, it is still ideal for cooking.
    Lately, the coconut oil has been given much attention not only for its
    use in cooking but also for its value as a hair and skin care product.

    • You cant compare Rupiah to His Excellency Michael Chilufya Sata that’s an insult. The president is doing his job just fine. The majority who thought where in business because of some kick backs they got are crying out that Sata is not working because they are used to dirty business. For some of us hard worker this is the only time we are seeing the playing field to be fare. Just work hard don expect Ba sata to bring money to your pocket when you are in self pitty.
