THE Patriotic Front (PF) secretary general Davies Chama has assured the nation of Government’s continued commitment to transform the lives of Zambians through meaningful development.
Mr Chama has called on youths to be patient as Government creates over one million jobs in the next five years.
He said this in Livingstone on Sunday when he addressed party members who braved the rains to welcome him.
Mr Chama said President Lungu is determined to transform the lives of the people by setting the foundation for massive infrastructure development.
“The PF Government has transformed most of the towns in the country such as Monze, Livingstone and Choma, which have received major facelifts among other towns.
“We are determined to improve the lives of the people by setting the foundation for infrastructure and later industrialise the country. This is the reason why President Lungu has created the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC),” he said.
He said the President is busy commissioning and breaking grounds for big projects, a sign that the country is moving in the direction of industrialisation.
Mr Chama cited the Link Zambia 8000 road project as one of the major projects opening up the rural parts of the country.
During the meeting, Mr Chama received over 200 people from opposition political parties, mostly UPND, who joined the ruling party.
PF party leaders also donated about 63 bicycles and over three motorbikes to support operations of the party in the district.
And speaking on Falls FM radio, Mr Chama dispelled assertions that he was an arrogant man as perceived in some sections of the media.
“I don’t want to praise myself, but I am a humble man and I come from a Christian back- ground. My parents brought me up as a Jehovah’s Witness, but I am a born-again Christian,” he said
He also expressed confidence that PF would win the 2016 elections and won’t be affected by the 50 percent plus one clause in the constitution.
Mr Chama was welcomed by Livingstone member of Parliament Lawrence Evans and other PF party officials.
Earlier, PF mobilisation chairperson Paul Moonga urged the party members to form more branches as it is the only way to form Government.
