Ministry of Finance has disclosed that Hakainde Hichilema has gone 8 months without a government salary from the time Zambians voted for him as Head of State.
Asked why? Ministry of Finance sources said that each time efforts to pay the President are made, He states that “Let’s focus on working for the people of Zambia. It is service to the people and not self-service”.
And President Hakainde Hichilema has maintained his position that he does not want to be given thousands of titles such as His Excellency but that he would rather be addressed as Mr President.
Asked why? Sources stated that such titles breed dictators and worshipping of people and that it is not titles that deliver work but oneself adding clamour for titles may be taken for an inferiority complex.
During his opposition days, Koswe recalls that Hichilema made it clear that he was not seeking public office to make himself rich but to work for the people of Zambia including correcting and repairing the so much damaged economy.
