Sata’s legacy was infrastructure

PRESIDENT Sata will be remembered for implementing infrastructure projects that are key in spurring development in the country.
Both, Private Sector Development Association (PSDA) chairman Yusuf Dodia and the Zambia Association Chambers of Commerce and Industry (ZACCI) president Geoffrey Sakulanda cited on-going road infrastructure programmes as some of the projects that are easing the movement of goods and services.
Commenting on the death of President Sata, Mr Dodia said the late head of State had embarked on massive infrastructure projects particularly roads, which are aimed at enhancing movement of goods and services.
Government under the leadership of President Sata embarked on various road development projects including the Link Zambia 8, 000, which is aimed at rehabilitating roads and establishment of new roads in various parts of the country including rural areas, Pave Zambia 2000 and L200 road project, which involves the rehabilitation of roads in Lusaka.
Mr Dodia said there is need for Government to continue implementing the projects that were initiated by the late President.
In a separate interview, Mr Sakulanda also said the Link Zambia 8,000 has resulted in many parts of the country being accessible thus accelerating commerce and industry.
“Most places are now accessible and this is good for business as it is easy to transport various goods and services,” he said.
