ACTIONAID ZAMBIA FOCUS YOUR ENERGY ON PF CORRUPTION AND NOT
We have received information that the once highly respected
ActionAid Zambia intends to hold a press briefing this morning
to discredit the UPND President, Mr. Hakainde Hichilema.
We are aware that their planned press briefing and whatever
utterances and actions thereof have been sponsored by Mr.
HIchilema’s political opponents.
Of interest is that Action Aid has been virtually mute on
serious issues affecting the Zambian people as a result of the
PF corruption, especially in procurement process.
One would have expected Action Aid to have joined many other
voices that have pointed out rampant corruption and looting of
public resources by the PF regime as revealed by the Auditor
It is shocking to note that a once noble institution such as
ActionAid Zambia would fall prey to being used by known corrupt
PF leaders to accuse those trying hard to grow our country’s
If anything, ActionAid Zambia should have been praising the
UPND President, Mr Hakainde Hichilema for his clean investment
and this is evidenced by the recent praises by paradise paper
which stated that him and other credible world leaders
including the Queen of England are trying hard to improve
economies of their countries.
There is nothing sinister in one investing in another province
or indeed another country depending on the business environment
in those areas and later spend the dividend of the same
investment in their country of origin such as what Mr. Hakainde
Hichilema is doing.
We also call on ActionAid Zambia to fully study the documents
and familiarise themselves on how things are done as opposed to
being used by the corrupt PF regime.
Zambians are suffering because of the PF corruption and to a
large extent because of institutions such as ActionAid Zambia
which wants to continue hiding the PF corruption.
