Former Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo has asked President Hakainde Hichilema to lend him three months as the Head of State.
Speaking when he featured on 5FM yesterday, Mr Lusambo claimed that he is capable of turning the country’s fortunes around in the mentioned period of time.
The former Minister said he can take care of the country because he has in the past held ministerial positions for Copperbelt and Lusaka Provinces.
“So dnefwayako ba President ba Hakainde banjashimeko ichalo for three months. Three months ukunjashimako ichalo. Nga babwela three months bakesa njeba ati Bowman twalilila, nauchishungulusha chalo, bonse imwe kuti muletotafye.
President Lungu gave me Copperbelt Province, the heart of the economy of this country when it was very critical,” he said.
“I went there, I turned the province around. The boss came, he looked at me and laughed. He brought me here in Lusaka. Ba Chief Justice, Irene Mambalilima (the late) called me and said Bowman, I was very excited when I heard that you have been transferred into Lusaka, I was jumping. I knew that Lusaka will now change. I told her that I would try. We turned Lusaka around. Zambia is about Lusaka and Copperbelt.”
Meanwhile, Mr Lusambo claimed that the cooperatives will not work in Zambia until participants get their training from Russia.
“If I managed Lusaka and Copperbelt I can’t fail to run this country, bufi sana. Ubufi ubukulu sana. These two provinces are critical to the governance system of this country. I managed. That is why ba president Edgar Changwa Lungu balinsunga for five years. Ba president Edgar Lungu balentuma ine ku China, nabanandi. Kabiyeni, kasambilileniko nafimbi. Twabwela, twaisa mukuchita implement,” he said.
“2021 or 2022 we were supposed to be in Russia because the Russian Federal Government invited Lusaka Province and other to go to Russia. The cooperative program that you are seeing was initiated by Russia. It will never work in Zambia unless we train our people and we can only train them from Russia. Even Kaunda copied this program from Russia.”
