Nothing for poor people in PF budget – Mbulakulima

Opposition MMD national treasurer Mwansa Mbulakulima has described the 2013 nation budget as  elitist.

Mr. Mbulakulima who is also MMD Chembe Member of Parliament says there is nothing tangible in the budget for the poor people of Zambia.

He says it is unfortunate that the PF have completely shifted from addressing the challenges affecting the poor Zambians as promised prior to forming government.

Mr. Mbulakulima says the adjustments that have been made in the 2013 budget such as the removal of duty on carbonated drinks, mineral water, tax, and removal of interest rates on bank savings are all favoring people in the urban areas.
