If It Were Up To Me, I Would Have Fired The Whole Cabinet – Mathias Mpuuga

Leader of opposition in parliament, Mathias Mpuuga has said if it were up to him, he would have fired the whole cabinet.

He says instead of minding about the ongoing crisis, the impending reshuffle that could take away their ministerial positions is scaring them.

According to him, one doesn’t need to have a Ph.D. to sort out the ongoing economic crisis. However, he says the country has no economic pillars which is also a very big problem.

“You don’t need to have a Ph.D. in economics to know how to fix a failing economy. We are an economy that has no pillar because we haven’t built it over the years. Economic pillars are deliberately built.”

Mpuuga says it’s the duty of the government to take care of the citizens. He says citizens have limited choices of what to do in such an economic crisis.

Much as the president told people to resort to cassava instead of bread, Mpuuga says cassava doesn’t grow in the wild.

He However advised citizens to show their discontent with the ongoing situation lest their silence communicates that everything is okay.

“The citizens must participate. Issues of governance are so serious to be left to the government alone. If you stay sitting in your discomfort, the message you are sending is that you can cope.”

Responding to all this though, some citizens advised Mpuuga for opposition to lay strategies that can help in such an economic crisis.
