President Sata said this today, Wednesday in Solwezi when he addressed a campaign rally at Solwezi Show Grounds to drum up support for the PF candidate.

Solwezi Sata arrivalThe Head of State who arrived at Solwezi Airport in the afternoon to a thunderous welcome, said he was ready to address the challenges faced by the people in the area and directed Mr Malwa to report all the problems to him once elected in tomorrow’s by-election.

President Sata invited the children who were present to sit next to him on the podium emphasized that the future of children depended on what plans Mr Malwa had as aspiring Member of Parliament.

“Have you seen all of these children here? Some of these children have been expelled from schools because their parents cannot afford to pay their fees,” said Mr Sata as he pointed at scores of children he had asked to come closer to him.

President Sata said the future of Zambia rested in the hands of the children, hence the need to ensure that they attained better education that would help them take the mantle of leadership.

The President said many children in Zambia were currently facing difficulties to attain education because their parents could not afford to pay their school fees.

“The future of this country depends on these children and you must go out and find ways in which these children are able to attain education,” he said.

The President, who was flanked by Kasama Central MP Geoffrey Mwamba and his counterpart for Kabwata Given Lubinda, urged the people in Solwezi to vote for Mr Malwa.

“Let me assure you your excellence that the party is now stronger and that the doors of PF are still open,” Mr Lungu said. “That is why you have seen Zayelo (Given Lubinda) and GBM here. There are no factions and we are all under you.”

Earlier, Mr Mwamba said the decision by President Sata to sack Mr Kabimba had united the party not only in Northern Province, but also across the country.

The parliamentarian said he could not form a political party or join the opposition after resigning as minister of Defence early this year because President Sata was his mentor.

Roan MP Chishimba Kambwili, who is also PF national youth chairperson, said the Government had demonstrated its preparedness to develop North-Western Province through the provision of road networks.

Mr Kambwili said 20 kilometres of township roads would be tarred in Solwezi Central under the Pave Zambia 2000 while an additional 60.6 kilometres would be upgraded under the Link Zambia 8000 project.
