Ruling PF needs more time to bring change to Zambia – official

22 December 2015, 14:49

Lusaka – Lack of transformational leadership in Zambia has led to the suffering of many in the southern African nation, Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General, Davies Chama has said, according to The Post.

Chama said this during an interview with a local radio station.

Chama said when the ruling PF came into power, they had every intention of creating significant change. However, there is still high youth unemployment and people are still forced to use pit latrines amongst other things.

Chama said the PF needed more time in power if the southern nation was going to see change.

"…there is nothing you can do as a government when God shuts the heavens and there is no rain. Whether you have President Barack Obama, president Muliokela or whether you have Edith Nawakwi as president of the Republic, there is nothing you can do when God has shut the heavens. Globally, there is climate change, there is global warming," Chama said.

Chama said Zambia needed to stop relying on imported goods and utilise their industries as well as be given the opportunity to have good infrastructure.

Chama's remarks came a few days after the Chines ambassador to Zambia came under fire after he advised the country to increase in population in order to boost the economy.
