Mutati On The Defence As He Prepares For Budget

 

Minister of Finance Felix Mutati is fighting back following continued calls for his expulsion. The calls, which the minister claims are an attempt to distract him from his work, have plagued the former MMD minister as he prepares to deliver the 2018 national budget on Friday 29 September.

 

Mutati has recently become a target of discontent for PF loyalists who feel the minister is using his position to support the MMD and his own presidential ambitions, which they consider to be a betrayal of the legacy of President Sata.

 

The lack of reaction from President Lungu has left many to speculate the attacks are being coordinated by senior PF officials such as party Secretary General Davis Mwila.
