United Progressive People (UPP) youths last week took to the streets demanding that ministers pay back public funds as determined by the constitutional court. The youths led by Mainda Simataa want ministers to respect the court after they were order to pay back public funds and salaries obtained when they remained in office after parliament was dissolved in 2016. BELOW IS THE STATEMENT By Cde Mainda Simataa Die-hard Revolutionary Nationalist – UPP The only necessary thing for corruption to triumph anywhere, is for good people, good Zambian people, to say and do nothing in the face of injustice! Yesterday, a contigent of 5 comrades only, UPP Revolutionary youth (4) acting with the Hon. Councillor of Chikibo ward, Keembe constituency, Reaganho Works (1), refused to remain silent, we refused to let the matter of the blatant looting our public resources ($120 million Dollars) without a fight. No, we refused to procrastinate, to wait for others to join us before we could march forward, and we risked arrest, but before we left, we had made up our minds to expect the expected – intimidation, arrest, or even death! Freedom is not free; The PF Ministers prior to the 2016 elections not only broke the law with impunity by staying in office to steal our money to finance their campaigns, money that could have gone to empower the 13 million unemployed youths, money to save the dying in hospitals, to rebuild collapsed schools and bridges, to feed the famine striken areas, money to improve housing and water, but they looted this money, and despite the highest Constitutional Court ruling against them, they stubbornly refuse to pay, and they insult our intelligence with an appeal against the unappealable! Well, we say either they pay now, or expect life imprisonment when the wind of change blows in 2021, we shall not retreat, we shall never surrender, forget or forgive. Justice must prevail, and it shall be done, but all Zambians must play their part Cde Mainda Simataa Party Media Director UNITED PROGRESSIVE PEOPLE (UPP) The post UPP Youths Take To The Streets Demanding Ministers Pay Back appeared first on Zambia Reports.
