Lungu’s speech lacked inspiration – Mutati


Former Commerce Minister, Felix Mutati has observed that President Edgar Lungu’s speech during the opening of the 5th session of the 11th National Assembly lacked inspiration on how government will address Zambia’s current economic challenges in the short term.

Mr. Mutati notes that the solutions President Lungu articulated in his speech are for the medium and long term.

He has told Qfm News in an interview that the country cannot get to the medium term without solving the problems that are drawing it back presently.

Mr. Mutati states that issues around the Exchange Rate are issues of sentiments and therefore what was expected of the President was to articulate what actions government was going to take in the immediate term in dealing with the challenges in the country’s economy.

He says this would have in turn given inspired confidence in the Foreign Exchange Rate.

German Ambassador to Zambia Bernd Finke is however touched by the strong commitment President Lungu has shown to further promoting human rights and the rule of law.

Mr. Finke has told Qfm News in a separate interview that this is especially when it comes to freedom of expression and assembly.

He says he is also encouraged by the theme of the presidential speech especially that it’s focused on economic transformation.
