Opposition United Progressive People has reminded ministers that used public funds for the 2016 general elections to pay caeser what belongs to caeser. Media director Mainda Simataa says failure to repay the money after a court ruling ordering so was tantamount to theft. BELOW IS THE STATEMENT PRESS STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE APRIL 4, 2018 LUSAKA, ZAMBIA MINISTERS REFUSAL TO OBEY CONCOURT ORDER TO PAY BACK THE MONEY IS TATAMOUNT TO THEFT BY PUBLIC SERVANT, AND ABUSE OF POWER The United Progressive People (UPP) would like to state that the appeal led by Patriotic Front (PF) secretary general Davies Mwila, against the Constitutional Courts (Con Court) ruling to compel the Ministers who continued to draw illegal salaries when Parliament had been dissolved in the run up to the 2016 elections undermines both the authority of the court, and the fight against corruption. UPP holds the view that the action of appealing demonstrates that the fact that the Zambian justice system is very much a hostage of the ruling Patriotic Front (PF), and thus, is incapable of remedying the injustices and financial losses being suffered by the Zambian people. The UPP would therefore wish to reiterate its position, that the only thing that will save Zambians by being looted by foreigners and the corrupt ruling class in the PF is their removal from power, and the subsequent trial and jailing of all those who will be found wanting. We further urge the people of Zambia not to relent or give up in calling for justice, no matter how long it takes, and for the Ministers to pay back the money they have stolen from the Zambian people, with interest!
