Patriotic Front Secretary General Davies Chama has described as unfortunate insinuations that President Edgar Lungu’s outlined 2064 vision to develop Zambia is political rhetoric.
Mr. Chama says anyone holding this view may have listened to another speech other than what President Lungu delivered when he opened the 5th session of the 11th National Assembly.
He has wondered why any sensible person can reduce the 2064 vision President Lungu unveiled to Parliament as mere political rhetoric when important people such as UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon have found merit in the speech.
Mr. Chama says if President Lungu’s 2064 vision was mere rhetoric, like some critics have put it, Mr. Ki-moon would not have asked President Lungu to repeat some of excerpts of his maiden speech to the UN General Assembly being held in New York.
He has told Qfm News that there is no doubt that most people criticizing the contents of President Lungu’s 2064 vision for developing the country are only doing it for the sake of criticizing.
