We are very saddened that within 48hrs the government was quick to lift the suspension of road service licenses for the three operators which were suspended. This is a clear sign of interference by government in the operations of RATSA. We therefore want to know what interest government has in this matter because their quick action to reverse RATSA decision is very suspicious and does not in any way promote road safety.

TIME FOR TRUTH Ladies and gentlemen, what I am about to say today will shake the very foundation upon which our Party has risen. It will either make our Party stronger or it will deal a permanent blow to the hope that I and many of my colleagues had when we entered politics – the hope that we can reclaim our dignity as a nation that can stand on its own feet and empower our people to achieve the greatness that is stored inside each one of us. I still believe that we can be the truly independent and powerful nation God intended for us to be; that we can be the nation that can make a contribution to the world on the strength of our abundant potential. Today, we are far from being that nation

As a nation and Zambians, let’s come together for once. Compromise and move forward in putting in place a new constitution. There is no doubt that we all want a new constitution to be in place before the tri-partite elections in 2016 in order to have a level playing field.

MBEBA ECONOMICS - THE FAILURE OF LEADERSHIP IN ZAMBIA Yesterday I spent part of my morning with an old man as he moved around in a field searching for traps that he had laid to catch mbeba (field mice). He is well past retirement age. He has no pension. He has no income. He owns one bicycle. His only source of accessible protein and carbohydrates is the few mice he traps each day and the little rain-fed maize he managed to farm on an illegal plot of land.

NAREP statement on the current Zesco Load shedding Zesco cannot blame the current power crisis on low water levels in reservoirs like Kariba Dam. The crisis was predictable and should have been foreseen. Now we face the real and continued prospect of job losses, business failure and reduced productivity. This is hitting the small business owner and struggling entrepreneur particularly hard at a time when there has been so much economic hardship already under the PF Administration.

NATIONAL RESTORATION PARTY (NAREP) PRESS CONFERENCE ON THE STATE OF THE NATION AND THE FUTURE OF NAREP President Edgar Lungu has a hard task ahead of him. Unsurprisingly, after 100 days in office, unemployment remains unacceptably high, poverty levels have not changed, money is tight, projects that were started at the beginning of the PF’s term in office have remained stalled – and all this in an economy that is fighting punch drunk as it reels from nearly 4 years of uncontrolled expenditure, poor planning, and a weakening kwacha. To crown it all, as of midnight last night, fuel prices went up, making an already difficult situation even worse for many Zambians. Some will try and argue that the strength of the dollar and low copper prices are to blame for all our problems. Such reasoning should be jettisoned straight into the rubbish bin.

There is a palpable tension in the country resulting from the silence surrounding the state of health of the republican president. Speculation is mounting in people’s minds as to why the president has not been heard from directly, rather than through standard-issue photographs.Even the standard public swearing-in ceremonies seem to have been brought to an end. We are left to conclude that whatever is preventing the president from attending to his daily duties is serious and requires sober reflection on how we move forward as a nation from this point.

The recent statement by the Acting President Hon. Wynter Kabimba that government does not need to get permission from Chiefs or anyone to acquire land is an insult and disrespectful to traditional leaders and must not be condoned by all well-meaning Zambians.

We are very disappointed with some opposition political parties who are against ECZ’s proposed increase of constituencies in the country from 150 to 235. This clearly shows how selfish they are and that is why Zambians are having a hard time trusting them because they do not have a heart for the people. Without a doubt, this indicates that these opposition political parties exist to serve their interests and not those of the people as they pretend to do.

The PF’s true colours regarding the introduction of the new constitution are becoming more evident everyday. The latest delaying tactics are nothing short of comical. The statement by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Justice claiming that the 10 copies of the draft constitution that were submitted to the Ministry have been lost, require one to completely suspend belief. In any normal country such an admission would be immediately followed by a resignation from public office and an apology to the nation.
