HH’s address to parley was a talk show – Lusambo


FORMER Kabushi Member of Parliament Bowman Lusambo has described President Hakainde Hichilema’s address to Parliament on the national values and principles as a talk show.

Mr Lusambo said there was nothing new said by the President as he merely repeated what was delivered last year.

He said the country expected to hear pronouncements such as measures to be put in place to curb Gender Based Violence (GBV), alcohol and drug abuse.

He said President Hichilema needed to talk about the laws Government wished to put in place so that would-be offenders of GBV and drug abuse could be deterred.

He said the protection of the girl-child in unsupervised boarding houses needed attention from the highest office in the land.

“We saw the appointment of Judges and we wanted to know how they applied. We saw the President talking about cases being concluded in 90 days. Are we going to be seeing due process of the law,” Mr Lusambo said.

And Mr Lusambo said the scandals in the procurement of fertiliser and single sourcing should have been addressed by President Hichilema because they formed part of the grand corruption under the UPND government.

Mr Lusambo, who is former Lusaka Province Minister said the new dawn administration made a mistake in scrapping off the Ministry of National Guidance and Religious Affairs as it could have helped them with issues of values, morality and principles.
