It is with deep sadness that such sentiments can be expressed as are in this write up. Zambia is sadly one of the most corrupt Christian Nations in the world where the leaders are leaders in the corruption.
This is a country where funds are corruptly siphoned through the so called procurement of materials that are much more than what the materials and projects themselves cost.
Examples can make your skin crawl. One would actually not believe the level of resource looting by the current PF leaders. The resources the resources they are looting are meant for medicines in hospitals and the cushioning the cost of leaving for poverty stricken Zambians in these hard times.
For instance, on the fire tenders, findings show that the fire tenders real cost was a mare $250,000 each plus or minus 5%, the corrupt Zambian government procured them at $1,000,000 dollars each. So the question is, where did the balance go? They clearly siphoned a humongous $750,000 per fire tender and this went into their corrupt pockets.
Investigations show that each ambulance that was purchased cost $58,000, but the corrupt PF government through Chitalu Chilufya procured them at $288,000 each. Here they siphoned $230,000 per Ambulance. This was done without shame the so called state of the art ambulances were just simple ambulances which are almost all grounded already.
The proposed 320km dual carriage way between Ndola and Lusaka was going to use up $1.2Billion instead of $380 Million. The corrupt PF government were targeting $880 Million in thefts.
As Chishimba Kambwili has asked, we also ask here too, “God where did you find these hard core compassionless corrupt looters? How did you even allow them to preside over our precious country?”
We have learnt our lesson as a people, never ever again are we going to select Ba Pompwe into office. Ba Mwankole who destroy mercilessly and without remorse and pity. Please God listen to the cry of your people help us remove these dirty thieves once and for all from power.
Things will never get better but will only get worse as long as these thieves remain in power. They are even mocking us saying they are doing very well.
