The Statehouse has noted with concern International media reports claiming that government has failed to honour its promise to create one million jobs.
A statement signed by the Presidential Press Secretary Brian Banda categorically denies the allegation describing it as false and a clear misrepresentation of remarks made by His Excellency the President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera.
The Presidential Press Secretary says the President in his response during the recent press briefing clearly stated that his administration’s efforts to create One million jobs are not confined to the public sector but also involves implementing deliberate policies and incentives to stimulate job creation.
” What the President said, which is a matter of public record and of plain meaning to all fair-minded persons, is that his administration’s efforts to create jobs are not confined to the public sector” says the statement in part.
The Statehouse therefore says the President’s remarks did not mean backtracking on the promise and advised the media to contact its department of communications for clarification on matters of fact related to things said or done by the President to avoid being conduits of fake news.
