PF to use President Lungu’s speech in mobilising activities

CHIMWEMWE MWALE, Lusaka
THE Patriotic Front (PF) national mobilisation committee has unanimously resolved to utilise and apply President Lungu’s widely welcomed maiden speech to Parliament during its party mobilisation activities across the country.
PF national mobilisation committee vice chairman Nigel Mpakateni said yesterday that the committee will collectively apply the maiden speech, which he described as “powerful and inspiring.”
Mr Mpakateni said the President’s speech will ease the work of the committee and help mobilise more people to join and strengthen the ruling party in the run-up to the 2016 general elections.
“The speech will now make our job to mobilise people into PF much easier because the speech clearly explained a lot of issues like labour reforms, load shedding long-term solutions, economic and infrastructure development.
“These are some of the issues some people had difficulties to understand. Now that President Lungu put things straight in his maiden speech at Parliament, mobilising people to PF will be very swift,” Mr Mpakateni said.
He said the speech was inspirational as it tackled all areas affecting livelihoods in the country.
He said President Lungu’s speech has given hope to Zambians, especially that the President placed emphasis on labour reforms and economic diversification.
Mr Mpakateni observed that the President is also on track when he emphasised the need for love, unity and national reconciliation.
“Giving the nation in the hands of God is the best any head of State can do to redeem the country from any atrocities. This will open our nation, Zambia, to greater things,” he said.
On the re-alignment of some ministries, Mr Mpakateni said the decision is welcome because it will help improve the performance of the respective ministries since some ministries were complex to be handled by one minister.
And on cooperatives, Mr Mpakateni said the move is instrumental in assisting Government to buy maize from farmers and the distribution of farm inputs.
“This, in turn, will also help the Food Reserve Agency, which will concentrate on stocking up food reserves strategically,” he said.
