Leader of the Radical Revolutionary Party Vincent Chaile has emerged as a lone voice to support the purchase of 42 fire trucks at $1 million each. Chaile, a former UNZASU president, says Grandview International was now a victim in the grand scheme of things. “Our core Value as Radicals is to view things different from Ordinary, The Awarding of a $42 Million to Grandview International, a local company, has disapproved the theory and the public perception that only foreigners can be awarded big contracts. “As a party we feel Grandview is being victimized because it is a Local company and has delivered to the specification of the contract. The only crime Grandview International has committed is to have competed with a Germany company which quoted for $48 Million,” he states. THE FULL STATEMENT READS RADICAL REVOLUTIONARY PARTY (RRP) PRESS STATEMENT It has always been our party philosophy and principle to priotise local Zambians when awarding government contracts .It is a worldwide trend that it’s not the role of the government to do business, but to create an environment for doing business through policies which support the Flourishing of local businesses. Our core Value as Radicals is to view things different from Ordinary, The Awarding of a $42 Million to Grandview International, a local company, has disapproved the theory and the public perception that only foreigners can be awarded big contracts. As a party we feel Grandview is being victimized because it is a Local company and has delivered to the specification of the contract. The only crime Grandview International has committed is to have competed with a Germany company which quoted for $48 Million. Zambian companies should be inspired by Grandview international and should rise to the occasion and compete and fight against awarding of big contracts to foreign companies who are making millions of dollars through awarding of government contracts. For instance billions of Dollars are leaving this country daily from mines owned by foreigners and Zambians are quite, but are quick to point at local who is working hard trying to improve the lives of the Many Zambians. As Radical Revolutionary Party (RRP) we are Happy that the $42 million has remained in our economy and has not gone to a foreign country. We should be inspired by Grandview international for rising to the Occasion. We need more Zambian companies to build capacity to a Level where even Road contracts should be awarded to Zambian Companies.

In this country, thieves and crooks are revered as being smart and clever. In fact those that try to live within their means are regarded as dull. Nibatulo. Corruption and abuse of authority has been accepted as a normal part of our political dispensation and public life. This country has been reduced to a joke. Just look at these statistics: 79% of Zambians in rural areas and 65% in urban areas live below a dollar a day 53% of women give birth without the attendance of a qualified midwife 50% of our children are malnourished/stunted. Njala! 47% of Zambians have no access to clean water and sanitation. Deserts such as Dubai, former war torn countries like Rwanda, natural resource limited countries like South Korea have all advanced and developed into strong economies due to transformational and patriotic leadership; leadership anchored on vision, commitment to country and selflessness.
