High Debt And Corruption Levels Main Hindrances To Zambia’s Achievement Of Vision 2030

By Chileshe Mwango


A Political Scientist has observed that Zambia’s high levels of debt and corruption continue to be the biggest hindrances to achieving the vision 2030.

Mr. Zuwa Sinkamba in an interview with Phoenix News is of the view that going by the current situation, Zambia risks missing certain targets such as attaining a GDP of 10% by 2030

– at present sitting at 2% – and attaining an inflation of less than 5%, which currently stands at 12.5%.

Mr. Sinkamba has since advised government to take up a radical approach which involves incorporating serious austerity measures and increasing the revenue envelope, adding that in the 8th National Development Plan, these should be the set targets.
