MINISTER of Works and Supply Yamfwa Mukanga has urged Zambians to unite in sustaining Governmentâ€™s development agenda by voting for President Lungu and the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) in the August 11 general elections.
Mr Mukanga said in an interview yesterday that the country is in safe hands under the leadership of President Lungu and that people should not be swayed into experimenting leadership by individuals pushing for change.
He advised all well-meaning Zambians to unite and work with the PF as it is the only party delivering development countrywide.
Mr Mukanga, who is Mufuliraâ€™s Kantanshi member of Parliament, said Mr Lungu has a heart for Zambians and that he is committed to creating employment and decent livelihoods for all regardless of political affiliation.
â€œI would like to urge Zambians to unite in supporting President Lungu and the PF so that Government can continue with its development agenda beyond 2016. Our President has a heart for Zambians,â€ Mr Mukanga said.
He also urged PF members to be focused, strong, loyal and hardworking in strengthening party structures and recruiting new members from other political parties ahead of the elections.
Mr Mukanga said PF members from all party structures should remain steadfast and committed to the cause which will ensure victory for the ruling party.
And PF Lusaka Province youth chairperson Kennedy Kamba has called on all youths not to become complacent, but work extra hard in recruiting and mobilising the party ahead of the tripartite elections, TEDDY KUYELA reports in Lusaka.
Mr Kamba said in an interview in Lusaka yesterday that youths should not relax because of the massive support the party is receiving but should instead work extra hard in recruiting new members.
â€œI am urging the youth to work extra hard so that we can put President Lungu into office with a resounding victory,â€ he said.
Mr Kamba also called on Zambians to allow President Lunguâ€™s administration to implement all its development programmes.
He said Zambia needs consistent leadership and cannot afford to change heads of State for experiment purposes.
â€œZambians should realise that they have a listening President who is committed to uplifting their living standards. The President has also shown commitment to developing all parts of the country without considering where he got a lot of votes.
â€œIt is, therefore, important that all Zambians understand that there is a danger in changing leadership. Let us all rally behind President Lungu in the forthcoming general elections to ensure continuity in the implementation of development projects,â€ Mr Kamba said.
