We continue our review of the UPND 2016-21 manifesto. It sets out a ten point plan to govern and develop Zambia. Here is our assessment of their second policy promise to "reduce inequality”.
What are the main specific proposals?
The UPND promises to “reduce inequality” through undertaking four actions : a) growing the economy because “we cannot share poverty”; (b) delivering food security through long term planning and forecasting; (c) stringent laws and regulations against Gender Based Violence (GBV); and, (d) putting measures in place “to protect the vulnerable in our society [including] women and youth”.
