GOVERNMENT is working hard to better the lives of Zambians, says Bahati member of Parliament Harry Kalaba.
Speaking in Mansa on Friday, Mr Kalaba said all campaign promises will be fulfilled adding that Bahati constituency has also been earmarked for various developmental projects.
“We are working very hard to ensure that we give you what we promised during the 2011 elections. As you can see, just in the three years that we have been in office, we have done a lot of projects that the previous government never did,” he said.
Mr Kalaba, who is also Minister of Foreign Affairs, addressed two separate meetings in Kapili and Katakwe.
He reminded people not to be detracted by those peddling lies that PF was not going to deliver on its promises.
