Accelerate Awareness Campaign On Kwacha Rebasing, Government Urged

The Zambia Episcopal Conference (ZEC) has called on government to accelerate the awareness campaigns and update Zambians constantly on the progress made with regards to the rebasing of the local currency.

In an interview with Qfm news in Lusaka, ZEC secretary General Father Cleophas Lungu said government must ensure that the process does not disadvantage the less privileged in society.

Father Lungu explained that people must be made aware of the implications of re-basing the Kwacha in the country.

And Father Lungu has called for the equal distribution of wealth in all parts of the country.

Father Lungu has since urged government to exploit the natural resources that the country is endowed with.

He says it is unfortunate that Zambia has remained a poor country despite being rich in natural resources further stating that the Patriotic Front government must fulfill its campaign promises.
