Lockdown advocates want economy to fail so they can blame me – Lungu


PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu says government wants the economy to continue running whilst the country fights the Covid-19.

President Lungu says this is on condition that the people working adhere to health measures such as wearing of masks and maintaining of social distancing.

The President says people will suffer from hunger if they are forced to stay at home because of the Covid-19.

Speaking when he sensitised Food Reserve Agency -FRA- workers at the Storage facilities in Lusaka, President Lungu said there will be no food and money for medicines if the country’s economy is allowed to collapse because of the Coronavirus pandemic.

He said those, who have been wishing bad for the country want a total lockdown so that the economy fails and in turn blame him for failing to manage the situation, reports ZNBC.
