Speaking in an interiew in Ndola today ahead of the mayoral elections slated for this month-end, MMD Ndola District Youth Chairman Patrick Kayamba said the PF led council has failed to implement any developmental programmes in the city despite the massive funds channeled to the council by government.
Mr. Kayamba said roads in the city have remained deplorable and traders have continued trading in undesignated places because they have not been allocated stands in the legally recognized markets.
He said the MMD has since embarked on a road rehabilitation programme to protect the lives of road users from road accidents due to dangerous potholes found on most of the roads in Ndola town.
He said the rehabilitation of roads has already started in Pamodzi Ward in Chifubu Constituency and will be extended to other constituencies.
Mr. Kayamba said the district MMD party funded rehabilitation involves both road grading and filling-up of pot holes.
He regretted the fact that the MMD has less councilors in the district to ensure the installation of an MMD mayor in the forth coming mayoral election to enhance development.
Nevertheless, Mr. kayamba said the MMD has agreed to suport a PF mayoral candidate who can easily work with the MMD in the district so that development can be brought to the city.
Zambia is slated to hold mayoral elections on the 30th of this month and all Copperbelt District councils are run by PF councilors.
