Lucky Mulusa has said that President Edgar Lungu asked him to take the position of Special assistant to the President for project implementation because the ruling Patriotic Front has a shortage of high caliber people who are able to take such roles. Mulusa has insisted that he did push or call anyone for him to end up in the job that he currently holds but Lungu simply appreciated that Mulusa was bringing what most brain dead PF job seekers do not have. Mulusa who was Solwezi Central Member of Parliament until he lost it after the court found that he used deep corruption to win it , said his appointment was on merit and not based on political patronage. He reiterated that he has brought skills that PF cadres do not have. While a lot of PF cadres that vigorously campaigned for Edgar Lungu have turned into foolish and desperate destitution, Mulusa revealed that he was told to hang on for a job during the campaigns when he interacted with Edgar Lungu. Further, true to reports that are making turns to the effect that the PF government is broke and that a lot of government projects have been suspended due to the depletion of government funds by the Patriotic Front, Mulusa confirmed that a lot of projects have been abandoned. Mulusa specifically cited Muchinga province where he said 46 projects out of 50 have been abandoned in Province because contractors have not been paid. While Mulusa kept on boasting about the claimed competence that earned him the job against desperate and frustrated PF cadres, he did not have any plan of action apart from telling the nation that projects are being abandoned. Listening to Mulusa. it is as if Lungu appointed this corrupt chap to simply talk about how the PF government is failing. No solutions whatsoever!
