It is gratifying to note how President Edgar Lungu and his Government are tackling head-on many critical issues affecting the Zambian people.
However, it’s sad to note that the usual armchair Government critics have continued to attack the Republican President in their futile attempt to distract him from fulfilling his campaign promises and delivering the much-needed development to the Zambian people.
We advise the said armchair critics to work with government in finding lasting solutions to the many challenges the country is grappling with instead of playing cheap politics.
We are appealing to President Lungu to continue delivering on an all-inclusive development agenda that is tailored not to leave anyone behind, and ignore the armchair critics as they have nothing to offer except peddling falsehoods against him and other government officials.
