Savior Chishimba has challenged Edgar Lungu to explain the source of his sudden wealthy from the pauper he was before elections to the multibillionaire he is now.
Chishimba has given Lungu seven days to explain how h acquired the property in the photos.
We, in the UPP, have consistently raised a cry by blowing the trumpet against corruption for the period 1991 through to the current financial year.
In order to ensure that we prevent more corrupt practices under the PF regime, we have launched the #BringBackOurMoney! anti-corruption crusade, which is also aimed at continuing to gather evidence on plunder of public resources for a speedy recovery of taxpayers’ money when the day of reckoning arrives.
The President of the Republic of Zambia is not above the law and he/she must be the number one protector of public resources.
The corruption of the President of Zambia has potential to plunge the country into lawlessness and abuse of human rights predominantly because in an attempt to cover up the rot, all opposition leaders and the media are silenced through trumped up changes.
The ultimate aim is to cow all citizens into silence through scare tactics. This way, citizens cannot report cases of plunder and through state terrorism (state sponsored violence) the despotic regime can impose itself on the people through the rigging of elections. This is what corruption and bad leadership can do to destroy the soul of every nation.
We have said before that over K50 billion has been plundered under the PF regime over the past five years and over 50% of these public funds have been repatriated into offshore accounts through mafias and the bogus Chinese contractors.
His Excellency Mr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu, the President of Zambia, has openly informed the people of Zambia that huge amounts of money were corruptly being deposited into the personal accounts of his Ministers, but the people of Zambia are still waiting for a report on how much has been recovered.
We are afraid to note that President Edgar Chagwa Lungu himself must fully explain how he has powered his way into immense wealth over the past two years of his Presidency -from the net worth of K2 million in 2015 to over K27 million in 2016 (one year).
UPP is fully aware that, like FTJ Chiluba, President Edgar Chagwa Lungu has been traveling around the world as a way to just his allowance-based earnings as the source of wealth. This is a cheap strategy, especially that Zambia is failing to balance the budget under his humble leadership.
We give President Edgar Chagwa Lungu seven days to either confirm or deny part one of the report in our possession in respect of the properties in the pictures hereunder exhibited. These properties are in State Lodge – Mikango area. If he provides facts to the contrary, we shall be the first to render a public apology.
Further, we challenge the PF regime to explain the role of the Chinese contractor, AVIC in all the public projects.
We also demand an immediate forensic audit of AVIC and all its deals in Zambia.
The people of Zambia are currently being subjected, needlessly so, to economic hardships because of corruption and the over K200 billion public debt, which the PF regime has contracted to finance corruption, is being placed on the shoulders of the poor in Zambia. These are the issues that the genuine Catholic Bishops are trying to address.
The assets that are concentrated in the corrupt few can be redistributed to Zambian public service workers as part of the housing empowerment schemes.
God bless our nation!
