‘State of Emergency’ will negatively impact businesses – UPNDBy Karen Mwelwa on 18 Jul 2017
United Party for National Development (UPND) National Chairperson Mutale Nalumango says the implementation of the Threatened State of Emergency will have a negative impact on businesses.
Speaking when she featured on Prime Television’s Oxygen of Democracy programme, Nalumango said the declared state of emergency had become chaotic, creating an environment where criminals were going on rampage.
“This threatened state of emergency implementation has become even more chaotic, creating an environment where more criminals can be on rampage because people don’t know when to stop, when to go home, when to lock themselves up and if they do that then they have an impact, there is an impact on business, the shops are closing earlier than normal,” Nalumango said.
Nalumango said there was no need for the declaration of the Threatened State of Emergency because it would have an impact on the country’s economy.
“There is no need for a Threatened State of Emergency, it has an implication whether you like it or not on the economy. These people who sell on the streets, maybe in the evening that’s how they survive. I don’t know whether they are able to do that properly, so this was done without much thought, to be sincere,” she said.
Meanwhile Nalumango said her party would remain strong despite the declaration of the Threatened State of Emergency, which she said was targeted at the UPND.
“UPND is strong, God fearing, law abiding. We have no intentions of evil for Zambia and because of that you will not cower us. We will not be intimidated in our own country we will do what is right for Zambia. We are a free people, we just want to be included in the governance of this country,” said Nalumango.Related Items
