North-Western Province Permanent Secretary, Eustern Mambwe has said prudent use of Zambia’s abundant resources and wiping out corruption and fraud can lead to the country’s fast development.

Dr. Mambwe said, if all the money  for economic development were used for it’s intended purpose, Zambia could develop at a faster rate.

He called on all Zambians to vehemently fight corruption and fraud, which he described as devastating to the country’s economy.

Dr. Mambwe said this in Solwezi today, in a speech read on his behalf by his Deputy, Nkolola Hazemba during official opening of a workshop on, ”Prevention of Corruption and Fraud in the Work Place”.

He said public service workers can deliver according to people’s expectations, in the absence of corruption and fraud.

Dr. Mambwe said, if all the money for economic development were used for it's intended purpose, Zambia could develop at a faster rate.

“God has blessed this country with plenty of natural resources, comprising of intelligent people, fertile soils, streams and rivers, lakes, minerals, trees and and many more. All we need is the proper use of finances, backed up by hard work,”, he said.

Dr. Mambwe said Zambians should step-up the fight against corruption and understand that no outsiders will rid the country of the scourge for us.

He urged all Zambians  to work hard, rather than complaining about the country’s economy not developing fast”, he said.
