UPND Senanga Member of Parliament Likando Mufalali says the creation of more government ministries amidst economic challenges the country is facing goes to show the lack of leadership in the PF Government.

He says the creation of five new ministries will put more pressure on the country’s wage bill which is already too high and needs to be reduced.

Mr. Mufalali has told QFM News that the PF will never stop to experiment even when the country’s economy is at its worst performance ever since independence.

And Mr. Mufalali says President Lungu has missed an opportunity to tell the Zambian practical measures his government is putting in place to address the volatility of the kwacha.

He says the PF government has failed to come up with measures to deal with the depreciating kwacha.

Mr. Mufalali says if the government has put measures in place to stem the Kwacha, the Head of State would have clearly outlined these in his speech.

He says most people were expecting the President to inspire confidence by outlining the measures government has put in place.
