UPND Deputy Secretary General Patrick Mucheleka has called on clergymen in the country to pray for the PF leadership.
In a statement, Mucheleka said leaders in government should focus their energies in providing solutions to the many challenges which citizens are facing rather than doing unproductive and immoral things.
“The country is currently facing huge challenges from jobless youths, ZESCO power outages to economic meltdown and many more other unprecedented problems and, one would expect those in leadership would be preoccupied with finding solutions to the problems,” Mucheleka said.
Mucheleka said the Ministry of Education is one such key ministry with lots of unemployed teachers, limited education opportunities for youth, and poor learning environment hence the responsible minister should up his game.
“Everything about President Edgar Lungu’s government is a curse to the Zambian people and they have no moral right to continue presiding over the country’s affairs even for another day or week. They must go,” said Mucheleka.

Police are after my life, when they are supposed to be saluting me, Tutwa Ngulube says
KABWE Central constituency Member of Parliament, Tutwa Ngulube has written to Central province commissioner of police, Chola Katanga complaining that he was harassed by police officers during the Patriotic Front (PF) general conference in Kabwe.
Mr Ngulube said he was harassed by police together with his professional assistant at Nkrumah University during the PF’s general conference.
However, a video has emerged on social media showing Mr Ngulube differing with some police officers while describing the incident as b**t.
He also alleged that some police officers were after his life.
And in his letter addressed to the commissioner of police, Mr Ngulube alleges that Kabwe district commanding officer Lemekani Chirwa instructed his officers to hound him out of the conference hall for unknown reasons.
He said the incident happened shortly after his name was announced as a newly ratified member of the PF central committee member.
Mr Ngulube lamented that the action by police was also extended to his professional assistant Thandizo Banda, who he said was accused of of filming the deliberations in full view of the senior party members.
“The latest of many instances of police harassment on me under the command of Mr Chirwa happened at Nkrumah University during the PF general conference , when he instructed his officers to hound me out of the conference for unknown reasons which almost disrupted the smooth flow of the conference,” reads the letter in parts.
