Following the election of Mr. Hakainde Hichilema as Zambia’s 7th Republican President, Facebook pages such as Patriotic Front claimed that unknown people belonging to the United Party for National Development (UPND) political party impounded fuel tankers that were purchased under the Youth Empowerment Initiative during the Patriotic Front (PF) regime. One such claim is contained in a video posted by the Patriotic Front page on 20th September 2021, where an unknown man was captured using a phone to record the “impounded” fuel tankers at an area with other unknown men. One of the men is seen wearing a red hoody with the letters HH behind the hoody. Another man is heard speaking in a Zambian local language stating that these are government vehicles and they (referring to him and the other men) went to pick them because they were hidden. The man also said that they were going to wait for the police. The fuel tankers were procured under the Youth Empowerment Fund project implemented by the Ministry of Youth, Sport and Arts. The project’s objective is to empower registered youth organizations, cooperatives and entrepreneurs through various Youth Empowerment programs to enable them to contribute to sustainable national development. Over the years, there has been debates on social media platforms that the funds are only given to youths that are affiliated to the ruling political party.
