Peace, security vital – Panji


GOVERNMNET says peace and security are key ingredients to sustainable development.
Deputy Minister of Home Affairs Panji Kaunda said Government has a vision of creating a safe and secure Zambia for continued development.
Speaking when he received furniture worth K28,000 from MTN-Zambia for the Zambia Police Service in Lusaka yesterday, Colonel Kaunda assured investors of Government’s commitment to maintaining a conducive environment for business to thrive.
The donated furniture will be given to the Flying Squad Scorpion department and Kanyama Police Station in Lusaka.
And Inspector-General of Police Stella Libongani commended Government to creating a conducive environment for investment, which has attracted investors like MTN.
In a speech read for her by commissioner of police for administration Philemon Mutale, Mrs Libongani said police should serve the people in a safe and conducive environment.
“Such donations rarely come, please appreciate and take good care of the property you have received today,’’ she said.
And Lusaka Province assistant commissioner of police Donald Mwandila said recipients of the donation are in most need of furniture.
Mr Mwandila said all police stations and posts in Lusaka need good furniture for them to operate effectively.
MTN chief marketing officer Clement Asante said MTN Zambia is part of the Zambian community, hence the decision to donate to police.
“It’s our obligation as MTN to contribute in various ways to the community. The passion to donate comes from what we saw during the tour of police stations by the Minister of Home Affairs, Mr Davies Mwila,’’ he said.
