Let those opposing the removal of fuel and maize subsidies advance convincing reasons-Lungu

The Government has challenged those opposing the removal of fuel and maize subsidies to advance convincing reasons because the move was meant to ensure equitable distribution of resources.
Home Affairs Minister Edgar Lungu said yesterday that it was sad that some people had taken advantage of the removal of subsidies to cause chaos in the country.
The minister said the Government wanted to save money and provide facilities such as hospitals, schools and roads, especially in rural parts of the country where most vulnerable people were found.
“Those who are aggrieved with the removal of the subsidies should engage the Government and give convincing reasons why the move should be reversed,” Mr Lungu said.
He said he expected United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema to advise students from universities to abide by the law rather than taking to the streets disturbing other people.
