Let’s reflect on love, peace, says PF boss

CHRSITINE CHISHA, Lusaka
PATRIOTIC Front (PF) secretary general Davies Chama says the Easter Holiday should be a time for reflecting on love and peace that God has for Zambia.
Mr Chama said Zambians should count themselves blessed for a peaceful transition of power during the past presidential election that saw the PF’s Edgar Lungu become President.
“As we reflect on the death of Christ, let us take time and reflect on the peace and love that has prevailed for the past 50 years and we should move forward as a united and peaceful front,” Mr Chama said.
He said the PF needs the support of all Zambians if the country has to develop and grow the economy.
Mr Chama appealed to party cadres countrywide to desist from involving themselves in violent activities and other mischievous activities but focus on supporting the vision of President Lungu who has committed himself to being a servant of the Zambian people.
Mr Chama was speaking in an interview on the sidelines of the PF national programme for poverty reduction (NPPR) workshop in Lusaka yesterday.
He said the NPPR is still intact and will soon embark on programmes to empower women and youths.
He said the NPPR board has not been dissolved contrary to media reports.
“We are a party that is committed to reducing poverty in the nation and unemployment among the youth.  Youths constitute 61 percent of Zambia’s population. Improving the well-being of the Zambian people is our main goal,” Mr Chama said.
He said his office has been holding consultative meetings with traditional leaders on how best to address poverty.
He said he had fruitful meetings with Senior Chief Chiwala and Chief Mushili in Masaiti.
Mr Chama said he will soon travel to Northern Province to meet ordinary Zambians and listen to their suggestions on how poverty can be tackled.
He said PF is an action-oriented party, adding that the party will implement all programmes aimed at reducing poverty countrywide.
He said he was happy that the PF is still popular unlike some opposition political parties that exist only in the media.
“PF is a popular party and we will scoop the three coming by-elections because we picked credible candidates,” Mr Chama said.
