Purchase of new Presidential jet a mockery to suffering Zambians – MsoniBy Kanchele Kanche on 28 Nov 2018[easy-social-share counters=0 counter_pos="hidden" total_counter_pos="right" template="20" style="icon" point_type="simple"]
APC leader Nason Msoni says the purchase of an executive private jet by government when people can not access quality medical care speaks to the moral bankruptcy of the leaders running government.
Msoni told News Diggers that it was not surprising to see the leadership in government spend colossal sums of money on an executive private jet because they were motivated by grand corruption and misuse of public resources.
He added that it was extremely criminal and injurious to the citizens for leaders to use such huge sums of money on things that don’t uplift their livelihoods.
“The reckless purchase of executive private Jets speaks to the moral bankruptcy and redundancy of thought of leadership eclipsed with a self-serving political ambition. But this is what is to be expected of any rogue morally redundant leadership of any nation motivated by grand corruption and misuse of public resources,” he said.
“It is absolutely criminal and injurious to the poorest citizens of our country who can’t reasonably even access quality medical care because hospitals don’t have the vital life serving equipment and medicines to treat their medical conditions.”
He called on citizens to denounce what he termed as unbecoming behaviour of the people in charge of the country’s resources.
“No one believes that ZAF acted at their own volition without the express permission of the authority and went on a jet buying spree abroad for the President. We are fully aware that more planes are to be delivered to Zambia. Surely, it is our collective duty as citizens to denounce this appalling and disgusting unbecoming behaviour of extravagance and abuse of public resources by PF leaders,” said Msoni.
The government had earlier denied purchasing the super luxurious presidential jet at a cost of aproximately US$140 million, but new video have emerged on YouTube of the brand new Gulfstream G650 headed to Zambia, fitted with anti-missile MUSIC system.Related Items
