THE National Restoration Party (NAREP) says the current government should not continue beyond the five year mandate given to it by the Zambian people.
Chipimo said PF had not responded positively to various challenges Zambians were facing such as unemployment, load shedding, high mealie meal prices and access to clean water.The NAREP president said the Patriotic Front (PF) government had not recognized their critical role in national development.
And on the creation of new districts by President Michael Sata, Chipimo said the government had no capacity to implement the district development roll out plan.
He said the PF government had caused more harm than good because it had no capacity to deliver.
“You don’t just wake up in the morning and say you have created a district. You need to set up a plan, budgeting has to be prioritized,” he said.
Chipimo said districts were designed to facilitate the delivery of development but the manner in which PF was handling the issue had caused government incur huge sums of money.
“There is no accommodation for staff in these new districts and as such government is incurring huge costs on rentals which are unbudgeted for,” Chipimo said.
Chipimo’s comments come after President Sata created seven more new districts.
The newly established districts are Nkeyema, Limulunga, and Mwandi in Western Province.
Others are Luano, Chisamba and Chitambo in Central Province; and Shiwang’andu in Muchinga Province.
The Head of State directed the provincial leadership in Western, Central and Muchinga Provinces to liase with all stakeholders, political parties and chiefs to determine where the district centres would be situated.
