Presidential trips critics malicious, says Machungwa


LUAPULA Member of Parliament (PF) Peter Machungwa has said people criticising president Rupiah Banda’s trips abroad are malicious and want to mislead the public. Dr Machungwa said in an interview yesterday that the presidential State visits had brought benefits to the country because a lot of investors were attracted to Zambia.
Commenting on President Banda’s recent trip to Namibia, Dr Machungwa said yesterday the head of State was a number one public relations manager of the country and should be allowed to visit other countries.
He said even heads of State from developed countries also visited other nations to strengthen bilateral relations as well as create networks for economic development.
Dr Machungwa said it was sad that some opposition political leaders were in the forefront criticising the president when they understood how the Government system operates.
Dr Machungwa said Zambia needed to benefit from the goodwill of other countries for her to develop and reduce poverty.
