NANCY MWAPE, Livingstone
VICE-PRESIDENT Inonge Wina has called on the people of Southern Province to embrace President Lungu’s message delivered to Parliament on reconciliation and hard work.
Speaking in Livingstone yesterday upon arrival, en-route to Sichili in Mulobezi district to drum up support for Sichili ward PF candidate Dennis Liyambayi, Mrs Wina said it was vital for Zambians to work together in all aspects of life.
She said President Lungu expects reconciliation to be the basis for unity and peace in the country.
“In his message to Parliament, the President implored Zambians on Friday to adhere to peace and unity. I hope the people of Livingstone and Southern Province in general will adhere to his message,” she said.
Mrs Wina said President Lungu further urged Zambians to change their mind-set towards work if the country is to develop.
She said changing people’s attitude towards work is imperative to grow the economy and improve the general welfare of Zambians.
“We have to change the way we carry out things. Our country has lagged behind for many years due to the way we coordinate our business, which does not work towards development,” she said.
She further noted that President Lungu is eager to promote tourism in Livingstone and the Northern Circuit citing Lake Tanganyika and Mpulungu.
“The President has directed that all districts in Zambia  come up with suggestions on areas that can be developed as tourist centres,” she said.
